Macbeth Studio Systems M3X SN 0071

via this auction

"Rare, hand-built 3 VCO synth. Superb build quality, simple to use and with a huge sound. Midi or analogue control.

This unit needs some work before it ships (replacement of the transformer). Lead time will depend on the queue of work we have, but is likely to be around 20 working days.

Macbeth M3X monosynth for sale. One of around 100 units made by Scottish synth expert Ken Macbeth back in the early 2000s. Will be supplied serviced, in full working order and with warranty.

Clearly inspired by the Minimoog (although it is in part based on the Prodigy) these have a well-deserved reputation for a big, ballsy, “vintage” analogue sound. The 24dB/oct transistor ladder filter is a big part of this.

This one has been fitted in a case for desktop use. It could be rack mounted (but the limitation is that all the sockets are on the rear of the unit).

The original transformer had burnt out so we will fit a new one which will be set either up for 120 or 240v use.

CONDITION: In excellent overall condition with only minor wear to the face. The wooden case is clean with some scuffs and dings around the edges. Please see photos or get in touch if you require more information on condition.

Will be set up for either 120 or 240v operation before shipping."
