1970's EMS VCS3 MKII SN 1301



via this auction

"Very clean. Serial number 1301. All pins are present. Everything works as it should . Serigraphs a bit worn around patch matrix on the left column but still clearly readable . Otherwise cosmetically near mint (see pics) . Wood parts are also great with only a few tiny marks (note a blonde vein in the wood on the left cheek, that was present since the first day). Original in every part except some worn pots changed for Bournes hi quality models and some electrolytic capacitors changed for Phillips long life in the main A board, for better future reliability, see detailed pics (note that the stock cheap japanese reverb tank was once replaced in the early 80's with Hammond better quality and that the original tank is available). Except mentioned nothing has been modified or repaired on this one. Equiped for the ks and the dk keyboards. Original simili leather cover, KS cord and power cord not pictured will be joined with a copy of the original owner manual. The KS keyboard has been sold."

  1. Looks amazing and I have always wanted one but I'll wait for the Behringer version and save £17,000.
