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 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 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.”
