Nice early Synthi AKS dating from 1972 – one owner from new. Supplied totally overhauled and in excellent working order.

This AKS came to us from the original owner: it has seen some action and had a switchable trimmer modification to Oscillator 3 – now replaced with a hi/lo switch modification to Oscillator 3. It comes with three Prestopatch cartridges (Guitar, Keyboard, Battle) and is a lovely-sounding example of this classic synth

It is a joy to play.

There is some wear to the original panels and lettering commensurate with a well-loved early Synthi, but overall it presents very well. The case lid was cracked when it came to us, but has now been repaired. It’s also missing the hinges from the lid section.

While everything has been done to ensure this synth is in excellent order functionally, this is a vintage Synthi and some occasional foibles may be expected. We take the view that servicing on these units should be sympathetic – recapping where necessary, but also keeping as many original parts in the audio path to retain character, even if it results in occasional minor flaws. A little noise may be possible from some pots when it’s not been used for a while, but this will clear with use.

These synths should be used regularly for best performance – just like a classic car or bike needs a run out to stay in good shape.

Switchable voltage for use anywhere in the world - it will be set up ready for you to use before we ship.

VAT: There is no separate VAT charged on this item (so the price is the same inside or outside the EU).
