eBay of the Day: EMS Synthi E

"Hey Tom, don't you ever get bored of posting eBay auctions of old and ludicrously expensive EMS gear?" Nope. Item #7380071548 is a great looking Synthi E - the slightly cruddy cut-down version of the Synthi A. This one is already $1,174 with five days to go... (Thanks, ScotStorch)

The shots in the auction are from a previous action I posted about on 8/19/05. Check out http://matrixsynth.blogspot.com/2005/08/ems-synthi-e-on-bay.html

Not implying anything, btw. Either this exact one is up for auction again, or not. : ) I have no idea if the previous actuion even sold as the auction post has expired already. Used synths obiously circulate, so...
 
For about this amount of money, I got myself an ionic performer (YES! the one mentioned on Musicthing!). It's an EMS ripoff -- they took the EMS boards and stuck them (more or less) in a case with a crazy keyboard.

Here's the funny thing tho: I got it at the beginning of August (or was it late July), and I sent it to a guy for repairs -- it's STILL being repaired! (okay, it was in Queue for ages, and he started on it only a few weeks ago).

I tried to find all sorts of people to fix it up, and the ones who were qualified were booked up solid for at least 6 months to a year.

Moral of the story: Get into the Analogue Synth Repair business!

Second moral: If you buy one of these things, you need a LOT of patience. It's like restoring an old painting.
 
i love synths, and i just happy to see any pictures
this are historical pieces they are worth the effort & money, like this little webcor organ which is probably more rare than the synthi time is the maximum judge of real values, if you are still reapairing your synth you are lucky

to have a piece of theknological history.
