EMS Synthi A Mk1

We’re delighted to be able to offer this stunning condition Mk1 EMS Synthi A to our customers who want to access the amazing vintage EMS synth but don’t need the extra expense/facility of the KS (Keyboard/Sequencer) that the AKS model offers.

We have upgraded the power supply Distribution Board on this first revision Synth A to incorporate more powerful power-regulators, this means this SYnthi A has a much more stable supply across the system, in particular supplying the VCOs with a clean current. In addition, we have also implemented the VCO stabilisation modification in accordance with EMS guidelines. The results are impressive on this early system with now rock-solid power delivery and very stable tuning.

Identical to the Synthi AKS (synth) in every way, the Synthi A is the ultimate portable synth from 1971, packaged in the same Spartanite case and offering the endless programming possibilities through the matrix panel interface. EMS actually named the Synth A the “Portabella” which followed the naming conventions of its early synths like the “Putney (VCS3 Mk1)” and Cricklewood (DK1) keyboard etc.

The Synthi A was issued by EMS the same year as Moog launched the Model D Minimoog to the world – an auspicious year for synth fans indeed!

We purchased this example from a Professor of Music based in Canada, and it has been very well looked after during his ownership (since new).

This immaculate Synthi A has a full compliment of matrix pins and operates on EU 220V.

This Synthi A is sold with a 3 month warranty.

Price: £8300 UK Pounds

Availability: This Synthi A is now SOLD as at 2nd February 2015.
