Elka Synthex Mk3

We are Brokering this Elka Synthex for and on their behalf of a UK customer

Came into stock: 25th March 2015

Restoration Status: KSR have recently undertaken a full service on this synth, so it’s ready for sale now.

ETR (estimated time from restoration): Available for sale now!

Remarks: This has to be the one of the finest analogue polysynths ever made and was used by all the top artists of the 80’s, especially JMJ. Built in 4 track sequencer 8 voice polyphonic, twin oscillator 24 dB/octave low pass filter 6 & 12 dB/octave band pass filters 12 dB/octave high pass filter. The specification doesn’t tell you that this is a silky smooth performer and in the right hands can deliver and almost polyphonic modular experience…just an amazing machine.

This particular example we are Brokering for our customer was purchased from new, so only one owner, and it has a very interesting history. This actual instrument was used on tour (by the owner) with many great bands, including; Vice Squad, Bad Company, Paul Jones from Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, David Coverdale from Whitesnake and Iron Maiden…to name but a few. The Synthex was very well cared for during it’s time on the road.

The cosmetic condition is good (as you can see from the pictures), although certainly not pristine, but the sales price reflects this. If you have been after owning one of these amazing vintage synths, looking for a really reliable example that works perfectly, looks good for its age and is keenly priced, then this is a great opportunity.

Our own vintage synth restorers – KSR, have very recently full serviced the synth, so it’s 100% perfect on the operational side, with all functions/control working smoothly and as you would expect.

Being a Mk3 version, this Synthex has factory fitted MIDI as standard.

This Synthex operates on EU 220V, and is supplied with the original user manuals, factory cassette and flight-case (as pictured). As the instrument is being Brokered through RL Music, it will be sold with a full 3 month warranty, and can be shipped world-wide. We will fully test and clean the Synthex prior to sending out to any buyer, and demo’s are available by appointment only.

Guide Price Post-Restoration: £6290 UK Pounds.

Availability: This Mk3 Elka Synthex is now SOLD as at 1st September 2015.
