Original Vintage Korg MS20 For Sale - In exceptional condition.

The MS-20 is a great monosynth but also has patchpoints like you'd find on a modular synth - for great added flexibility in sound creation and communication with other electronic musical equipment, old and new. Its external signal processor lets you process external signals through it in a way that most similar synthesizers don't allow and also lets you play the MS20 from other audio signals / instruments - voice, guitar, etc. This section includes a frequency to voltage converter, envelope follower and other features usually found on modular systems. It's also possible to cross patch this with other old synthesizers to create hybrid sounds.The MS20 has a nice raw and nasty sound to it - nothing else sounds like it, thanks to its TWO FILTERS - high pass resonant and low pass resonant - which make this thing really SCREAM. It can sound similar to Moog and ARP but definitely has a distinctive tone of its own - we consider this the rock and roll lead synth mainly because we can get very nice distorted sounds out of it which remind us of distorted lead guitar. This synth is perfect for all techno genres, rock, industrial, house music and other styles. There are very good reasons this synth is a favorite of many, including Vince Clarke, Aphex Twin, Air, Autechre, William Orbit, Youth and many, many other influential musicians from 1978 to 2001! Great for wet synth basses, ripping leads and weird noises!

Meticulously overhauled by perfectionists, and working perfectly.

Disassembled, cleaned inside and out, fully serviced by vintage synth specialists with decades of experience, systematically tested by perfectionists over a long period and fully functional. Few sellers invest the time, love and money we do in the preparation of our gear, and this is justifiably reflected our prices.
