EMS, VCS3 @ 24 November 2009

vcs3 “Have only owned this synth a few years. It wasn’t working when I bought it from a friend but was brought back to life and serviced by the Synthesizer Service Centre in London. I then shipped it to Australia where its been the last year or so.

It’s an amazing synth and I know I’ll never have the chance to own another but I’m sure someone else could get more use out of it than me.

It only comes with 10 patch pins unfortunately and a couple of those are a little on the wonky side. I spoke to Robin Wood from EMS and he can easily supply new ones. He also told me that he himself owned this VCS3 (Serial 327) between 1970 and 1971. Cool eh?

The Oscillator 1 pot slips from time to time, and there is a small crack in the VU meter cover. Apart from that its in really good nick. Obviously used but pretty good for its age.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
