CHRIS CARTER IS LOOKING FOR AN EMS SYNTHI A or AKS
For some time now, well since I sold all my analogue and modular synths back in 2007 - a moment of madness I'm still trying to live down - I've been hankering after another EMS Synthi... specifically a Synthi AKS, or Synthi A. I used to have an EMS Synthi VCS3 back in the mid-late 70s' and I loved it, but had to sell it just before we started TG (that's another story). But since selling much of my old analogue gear last decade I've been looking to buy a self-contained analogue synth that I could travel with and the Synthi AKS (or A) would be ideal for my purposes. I've come across a few over the years, some utterly knackered (technical term), some pristine and some outrageously overpriced but I've always missed out in some way on a sale. The market value of EMS synths has risen exponentially over the last 10 years and some currently go for crazy prices, usually in bidding wars on eBay. Where frankly these things can get totally out of hand in the heat of the moment. Which is typical of most auctions I've attended, virtual or not. When I was in LA a couple of years ago my friend Lustmord mentioned that he was selling his Synthi AKS but at the time I wasn't in a position where I could make a decent offer for what was a really nice unit. As is happened he sold that AKS last year for $7k, on eBay. Like I said, some sell for outrageous prices. Well I think i've waited long enough now so I'm putting the word out there that I'm 'seriously' looking to buy a Synthi... although I can't go to $7k and I don't really want to bid on eBay but I will consider most sensible proposals for a decent unit. Also I'd rather buy from the UK, or maybe Europe, but no further.
As I am now on Robin Wood’s waiting list for a new Synthi A so I am no longer looking to buy elsewhere.
Well unless you have one dirt cheap ;-)
Robin Wood is building me a new Synthi A and I should take delivery of it by the end of the year.
I finally took delivery of my new Synthi A from Robin Wood.
