I’ve owned the MS20 for over 20 years – and the MS50 for some 10 years or so – Both were serviced last year when I first thought of selling.
Then I changed my mind – and kept hold of them for another year… difficult to part with!
They are a great combination – the MS50 is a rare beast and comes into its own when patched with an MS20. Some have mentioned online that the pairing is similar in function to an ARP2600 (except for the spring reverb and built in speakers) although in my experience both have their own very unique sound.
only problems that I have encountered is the back light of the MS50’s volt meter has gone – but all works as expected, and when I bought my MS20 there was a kink in the underside (just below the middle of the keyboard) of the metal body (shown in picture). The later has absolutely no effect on keyboard operation – or any other aspect of the synth… I did intend on straightening it out – but as they say ‘if it aint broke…’
am selling due to my focus into the eurorack modular world.
I’ll throw in a bunch of 1/4″ patch cables – I also have photo copies of the original manuals which will be included.
I’m listing this as pickup only – as have no intention risking any damage in shipping – and insurance will be high.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
