EML Electrocomp 500

” This is one of the coolest pieces of gear my dad ( original owner ) had! This is a super rare Electrocomp EML-500, only 300 were ever made ( compared to the EML-1* series where 1000 were made ) and rumor has it there’s far less still in existence. I don’t know how to gauge “perfect working condition” in these old synths, but I do know it powers on and I saw it played within the past few years.

It could use a little cleanup but is overall in nice condition with one major flaw. One of the slider top pegs has broken off ( shown in photos ) The tops are a little plastic cap that goes over a plastic peg, and the peg snapped off some time ago. This could be a really easy repair for someone who is handy with epoxy, as the two pieces fit clean together and the small plastic peg could be removed from the cap and glued back to the other piece. Beyond that, some of the markings have started to wear, there’s a little rub of the steel finish in a spot or two, and the wood has some marks on the back ( also shown ). Remainder of wood is actually nice with only minor flaws. If refurbished, this would truly be a show piece.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

EML Electrocomp 200

“Vintage 1970’s ElectroComp EML-300 blue face controller unit.

The ElectroComp 300 from EML is a controller unit with a basic synthesizer, sequencer keyboard with numeric buttons and control knobs.

The 300 is divided in 3 sections. On the left is a switch patch panel. the mid section has a VCO with envelope generator, and the right side has 16 numerical buttons that trigger notes as an alternative to a keyboard.

The 300 needs to be used with one of the EML models such as the 200 or 400 models. It draws it’s power from the connected model. EML offered the unit as an alternative to using a keyboard with their modules.
Overall in good shape, it does have scratches on the wood casing, mostly on the back, sides and corners.

I did have them checked out, and had the necessary repairs\cleaning done to make them functional.

The unit was cleaned and tested. All the jacks, connections, and potenciometers were cleaned and checked.(Per the repair technician)” Click here to visit listing on eBay

EML Electrocomp 100

“Nice Vintage ElectroComp EmL-100 Analog Modular Synthesizer, in blue.

The EML ElectroComp 100 was the companies first product and was a great deal of an instrument to consider over other synth makers if not for it’s great features.

The 100’s 4 oscillators offered continuously variable waveforms and one of them could be used as an LFO. The unit is a semi modular system with a patch panel that could also use and process external sources with CV control of other synths or the 100 itself.

The instrument has 2 voices with a multimode filter, 2 envelope generators, and, a sample and hold section EML liked to call “The sampler”. It also offers white or pink noise and has a 44 note keyboard.
Overall in very good condition, the outside panels do have have scratches and does have a chip along one of the covers(nothing major).

I did have them checked out, and had the necessary repairs\cleaning done to make them functional.

The unit was cleaned and tested. All the jacks, connections, and potenciometers were cleaned and checked.(Per the repair technician)

EML Electrocomp 500

“Now listing my EML 500 for sale after owning it for 40+ years. This synth is much more rare than Moog, ARP etc. synths of yesteryear. Very few of these exist. There was way less production than those other popular synths. It has been stored and covered inside my home studio room for decades, never been outside. I bought it used at a local music store in the 1970’s. It hasn’t been played much for over 20+ years, I just turn it on occasionally. That said, it does need some TLC and cleaning etc. to bring it up to snuff.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

EML Electrocomp 400/401

“EML Electrocomp 400/401 Synthesizer Sequencer. Condition is Used. I bought this around 1980. It was first purchased by Cumberland College, now University of the Cumberlands. The music department wanted a synth, and then decided that this is not what they are after. I then purchased it from a local music store that brokered the deal. The number 503 is etched into the back. Not sure if this is the SN since only 300 were reported to be made. It is missing two plastic tabs on the sliders. Was serviced around 15 years ago and then put away. All sliders and switches work. Both oscillators sound but need some adjustment. Osc 1 is louder than osc 2 and is tuned a bit low. Being pure analog a service tech should be able to rectify this. Sold as is. A great piece to restore and flip.

About the unit. 401 refers to the synth section and 400 is the sequencer. It is designed so that multiple 400 units can be chained together. The sequencer has two sections of 16 x 3 sliders that can run in series or parallel. The synth is a basic 2 osc 1 filter unit. Note that EML does not operate on the standard 1 volt per octave ratio used by most modular gear. It is something like 1.2 volts per octave. This can be adjusted through simple CV scaling enabled by various modules, or you can ignore the standard when using it to drive filter and other parameters that are not note specific.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This particular synth is in great shape and sounds wonderful. It has a unique character to it and the possibilities are truly endless for making melodic sounds or effects. If you’d like to hear some examples of the synth in action, feel free to shoot me a message. The synth has a few minor blemishes, the handle is starting to wear, and a few knobs may need a bit more of a twist, but it is still in otherwise fantastic shape. It’s my favorite piece of gear, and I am very sad to see it go, but I hope you enjoy it as much as I did” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“The EML-100 is the rare blue faced precursor to the EML-101. Disassembled, cleaned inside and out, fully refurbished by a vintage synth specialist with decades of experience, systematically tested over a long period, working great and sounding incredible! This restoration process – an attempt to future-proof this instrument so it continues to work well into the future – took 30 hours of skilled labor. Few sellers invest the time, love and money we do in the preparation of our gear, and this is reflected our prices.”

EML Electrocomp 101

“Vintage EML ElectroComp 101 analog Synthesizer. Serial #138. Made in Vernon, Conn, USA, circa mid-1970’s

Rare to find an EML 101 in such good condition, they were often owned by educational institutions and were commonly played hard by students. This ElectroComp 101 was used for 18 years in a sound design studio in Hollywood and has been sampled/played extensively on many film soundtracks and TV commercials. A real workhorse that is often described as a poor-man’s Arp 2600 but that’s not really fair; it has a very unique sound that some describe as harsh, metallic, alien, machine-like, I think this comes from the fact that it has no onboard dynamics and really responds well to reverb, delay and other sweeteners. I seriously love this instrument and find it one of the most intriguing of the classic analogs (I’ve owned them all) and am selling reluctantly. I have found it a constant source of inspiration over the years and have turned to it often when no other synth was able to surprise me with something distinctive and unexpected.

The last work done was three years ago by the well-known tech Greg Montalbano in Oakland (and before that by the late Kevin Lightner). Greg replaced some caps in the power supply and installed a non-original on/off light that was intended to be a place holder until I found the correct light, but of course I never got around to it. I’m a purist about these things and always try to use original parts. The leather handle is also not original. Other than that #138 is in fantastic condition operationally and cosmetically. All the controls are working well and it has new keyboard bushings, and J-wires that were installed two years ago. EML’s four op-amp oscillators are remarkably stable. The scalable keyboard is a great feature as well as duophony and patchable modularity. You will not be disappointed, a real classic that is quite hard to find in any condition but rarely this well-preserved.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

EML Electrocomp 500

eml500 “I’ve owned this EML 500 Electrocomp synthesizer since 1981. I used it live for a couple of years then used it in the studio until about 1986 or so. It’s pretty much been in storage since. It worked when I checked it last about 10 years ago, but doesn’t now. Looks like it may have a fuse and cap missing from the back, but I’m not sure?
Needs some cleanup. Keys have yellowed over the years. Some of the slider caps are missing. Comes with a custom made wooden case. Will be professionally shipped by UPS. Sale is AS-IS, no refunds.”

eml200 “This is a very rare and cool semi-modular synth from Electrocomp (EML). Usually they’re silver but this one is blue! A few minor cosmetic chips on the paint but overall it looks great (see picture) and sounds fantastic! Really fat analog synth. Note that EML’s voltage isn’t the standard 1volt per octave so it’s probably more useful for special effects than as an “in tune” instrument but you can use it for anything. Also note that no keyboard is included. It is just the synth in its original cabinet.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

EML Electrocomp 101

eml 101 ” VINTAGE EML Electrocomp Synthesizer Model 101. Out of Electronic Music Labs in Vernon Connecticut. This is number 431 out of 1000 made. I’ve ran it through my amp and tested the keys. They are all working and do not stick. I’ve also tested every knob, oscillator, envelope and filters and modulators, ALL of the knobs and switches work, and I’ve fooled around with it enough to make every switch and knob change the sound and frequencies. It’s all very well and in good working condition. There are some slight scratches on the wooden case (as seen in pictures). The leather strap handle has been replaced with rope and electrical tape (which works fine as a handle). There are two definitive defects. One being the side latch top being broken and a chunk of the wood was taken with it *pictures*. This does not really effect the case being closed fully. Its still fine to carry around and about without opening up, and also when you set the synthesizer up, the latch can still be clamped on both sides. The other defect is the input from the keyboard part to the main board. It’s plugged into it. But indefinitely. Someone has taken the liberty of drilling a hole next to the actual input and has it plugged in somehow behind the main display board. I have not taken it apart to look. It works fine the way it is. You just can’t take the two separate pieces too far from each other because they are attached by the input cord. *see pictures*. It should make for a pretty simple fix but there will be that new hole in the display/control board.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

eml200 ” Here is a very rare vintage analog modular synth from EML called the EML 200 Modular System. From the makers of the Electrocomp comes a more flexible unique sounding synth! The condition is very good with some minor chips in the paint that are barely noticeable from a distance. It’s a beautiful blue synth! Very few were made and even fewer were blue (most were silver/plain). Note this is not 1/volt per octave but EML’s own scaling and it does not include a keyboard so it’s more for processing and special effects (unless you can find an EML keyboard or some other trick with a CV to midi converter and scaling). Please only purchase if you know what it is and you really want one as it is sold with no returns as is. It is guaranteed to be functional. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Very nice cosmetic condition, a few light scratches on the cabinet and alittle seperation on the edge joints but very solid. The face plate is excellent with no missing print and no discoloring from use. The knobs are all original as is the electronics. Item powers up and creates some interesting sounds. There is some pots that are scratchy and will need cleaned. I have had two arp 2600 repaired and sold in the last 6 months, I am going to leave the reapairs done by the buyer this time. The synth should be gone over by a tech because of age and is a wonderful candidate for restoration.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“verall, the synth is in superb cosmetic condition, as close to a mint example of this synth as you are likely to find.

The synth has been recently serviced, which included a keyboard clean and rebushing, a number of pots were disassembled and cleaned, the synth was tuned and calibrated to specs.

The front panel is in exceptional condition, with all printing clean and complete, chromework nice and bright and no wear to the panel around the pots. All pots move smoothly and are crackle free.

The wood veneered cabinet is in fabulous condition with minor marking only.

All keys are clean and aligned and contact correctly.

The length of the connector cable between the base and top units can be shortened by feeding this back into the base unit. The synth will be dispatched with the visible cable shorter than pictured.

This is a 110v model so is sold with a small wall plug style step down transformer.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
