Korg MS-20 MKI Monophonic Analog Synthesizer SN 145616

via this auction

"We all know the MS-20 thanks to its massive use in popular music and Korg's recent miniature reissue. Here we have the real thing! This is a beautiful MKI MS-20 with the original Korg 35 filter design, known to be a more aggressive sounding one. All we know is it sounds fantastic.

The MS-20 is a classic from the early days of affordable monosynths, bringing in the semi modular design for creativity and interfacing. Don't forget the dual filters, ring mod, HADSR envelope, and wacky analog pitch tracking circuit included as well, an oddity to most synthesizers.

This MS-20 was recently serviced by an outside technician prior to our purchase of the unit, a service receipt is included. Everything is working properly and sounds incredible. Included are some 1/4" patch cables of varying lengths to get patching right away. It is in great shape for its age but certainly has a few dings in the paint, the VCO 1 knob has been changed as well. Please see the detailed photos for the condition."
