EMS VCS-3A Putney SN 2620 & DK-1 Cricklewood SN 3320

VCS-3A via this auction

A rare chance to pick up an early example of this legendary instrument. Preliminary conclusions from our inspection is that it is original inside and out. It has an unusual heat sink at the top of the boards, but this is an early modification and may even be factory. It’s also notable that it is badged “VCS3a” on the serial plate: hence James describing it as ‘late/early’!"

DK-1 via this auction

"Rare EMS Synthi DK1 Cricklewood keyboard for sale in excellent condition. The perfect partner to your VCS3 or Synthi A... Can be upgraded to factory DK-2 duophonic spec during service."

  1. Well, looks like this is never going to be played in performance ever again. It's the glass cabinet for you, me bucko. Just like all those classic autos at Harrah's museum, gathering dust, never to see the road again.
