"Her Majesty Elka synthex (Second Version), fully functional, just put back into operation.

All voices restored to proper operation and all parameters checked. The 2 double "Balance and Master" potentiometers have been replaced with 2 guaranteed lifetime potentiometers of much higher quality like those of the MOOG MODULAR. We left the moog caps simply because they have a slightly wider stroke, but if you want to put back its original caps we have kept them and just file the hole slightly to get them to the desired size.

Only flaw: the joystick on the left is broken. we didn't look for it because it works like this too."
