Prophet VS

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

Came into stock: Due here w/c18th January 2016

Restoration/Servicing Status: KSR to service once sold, and prior to shipping to the new owner.

Remarks: The Prophet VS – a classic & ground breaking synth by any definition, and this VS is available for sale.

Vector Synthesis was revolutionary when the VS was introduced in 1986 and opened up a whole new way of modeling sound in real-time. Using four oscillators per voice with 127 waveforms (of which 32 could be user), this 8 voice synth changed everything. It’s dynamic waveform crossfading via the joystick is a fantastic feature and mono-aftertouch and velocity brought Sequential into the modern age – just a shame this was their last synth.

These historic synths are rare to find in good condition but remain very popular with great EM musicians like Ulrich Schnauss etc. The use of the Curtis chipset for the filter IC successfully pulls the digital and analogue together to make the VS very musical.

The mono-aftertouch system is fully working, although typical to these models, is primitive and lacks the more sophisticated control of system like the T8 and CS80 etc. although It can be accessed via MIDI as an alternative.

Our restorers, KSR, are experts at preparing these models, and this superb example is in really outstanding cosmetic and operational condition. It has been fully serviced by another reputable UK tech fairly recently, although the VS will go though a full and extensive servicing again by KSR to ensure it’s ready for the new owner.

As with all Brokered Sales, the synth will be fully restored 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 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.

This Prophet VS is sold with a 3 month warranty and runs on either 110V or 220V.

Guide Price Post-Restoration: £2690 GBP.

Availability: This Prophet VS is no longer available (as at 15th July 2016), as the owner has withdrawn it from sale – sorry.

Library pictures supplied below of the last Prophet VS we sold, but high-res pictures of the actual synth will be organised and posted here shortly.
