Elka Synthex Mk2

We are Brokering this instrument for and on behalf of our customer.

Came into stock: Arrived at RL Music on 17th May 2018.

Servicing Status: Full assessment by KSR carried out on 11th May – full service by KSR will commence post-sale.

Remarks: A really super condition example of the Mk2 Elka Synthex, so MIDI utilised and with MIDI sockets installed (retrofitted).

This has to be 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 an almost polyphonic modular experience…just an amazing machine.

The Synthex was very well cared for during its lifetime at the current owner home (16 years), so the cosmetic condition is excellent, as you can see from the pictures. The main control surfaces are in fantastic condition, and the wood cabinet is in well above average condition for its age, so if you are after a really reliable example that works perfectly and looks beautiful, then look no further.

Our own vintage synth restorers – KSR, have very recently fully health-checked the synth as part of the pre-Brokering assessment, so we’re happy it’s fully operational, with all functions/control working smoothly and as you would expect, but the Synthex will be fully serviced post-sale.

This Synthex operates on EU 220V and is supplied with the user manuals in PDF format. As the instrument is being Brokered through RL Music, it will be sold with a full 3-month warranty and can be shipped worldwide.

Demos are available by appointment only.

As with all Brokered Sales, the synth will be fully serviced post-sale before it’s sent to its new owner. We do this to ensure that the instrument leaves us in perfect operational condition, and it is backed up by our full warranty to give the new owner complete peace of mind. The servicing is carried out as a priority once the sale has been completed, and although it will delay shipping/delivery by a short time, we know from experience that customers are happy to wait.

Price: £6890 GBP.

Availability: This Elka Synthex is now SOLD, as at 22nd November 2018.

Servicing Status: Full restoration was completed by KSR in October 2015 and has just had a full ‘health check’ in November 2017.

Restoration ETA: Ready for sale now!

Remarks: A truly immaculate condition example of the late version (Mk3) Elka Synthex – with factory MIDI.

This has to be 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 bandpass filters 12 dB/octave high pass filter. The specification doesn’t tell you that this is a silky smooth performer, and in the right hand,s can deliver an almost polyphonic modular experience…just an amazing machine.

The overall condition of this Synthex is truly outstanding/pristine and comes from our own RL Music Vintage Synth Collection, so has been part of our own in-house catalogue for more a few years. This Synthex has most definitely been treated with love and care throughout its life and the cosmetic condition reflects this.

KSR had undertaken full restoration on the operational side in late 2015, as well as re-finishing the cabinet (strip, stain & wax) – every aspect of the synth was been addressed, including re-capping and deep-cleaning all the controls etc., so the synth plays beautifully. The recent health check found no issues.

Runs on EU 220V, and sold with a full 3-month warranty.

Price: £8500 GBP.

Availability: This Elka Synthex is now SOLD as at 4th December 2017.
