Never made in large numbers, the Sequential Prophet VS is now a hugely collectable synthesizer. Made in San Jose, California in 1987 (s/n 01117), the VS was Sequentials last model before the company folded. Most of the R & D team ended up in Japan, helping Korg to produce the famous Wavestation....and they sold thousands of those.....
It all started in 1985, with Chris Meyer dreaming up the concept of Vector Synthesis. Initially tagged Prophet 2400, the name VS was eventually adopted. Basically, "morphing" among FOUR separate digital waveforms, with the 360* joystick, allows the creation of new patches (100 memories on board). There are 95 resident/32 user waveforms on board.....derived from 4 oscillators being shaped by Curtis analogue filters (but digitally controlled) ~ 4-pole lowpass, using 8-voice polyphony (+split/dual) ~ with TWIN chorus + agile stereo routing, all being sounded with a 5-octave velocity/aftertouch keyboard. As a bonus, there is also a versatile arpeggiator. Cosmetically, this synth is a bonny sight to behold, with lots of attractive blue switches and pleasing livery with SEQUENTIAL well featured on the cooool.........
This particular VS (rev 1.2) is now fitted with a h/duty heat sink. This is a vital addition, which prevents overheating & subsequent crashing. New blue OLED display has been installed, and some new buttons & switches. The keys are nigh perfect, with velocity fully working, though channel aftertouch needs to be forgotten about; the physical durability of the system is poor. There is also a super-rare cartridge in the package, effectively doubling the choice of patches to 200!
KKGB rate this beauty at 9/10. Dims are 97 x 44 10 cms..weight is around 20Kgs (sturdily built with metal chassis + decent feet). 6 months full guarantee will be offered. AVAILABLE now, after extensive soak-testing. The used flightcase shown is also included in the package.
Sounds like? There are plenty demos on YouTube etc. New sonic creation is easily found; its nice to swerve away from the "normal" sounds!
UK price is £4199.00 It is being sold via HMRC VAT margin scheme. This simply means that UK VAT registered companies/individuals cannot reclaim any VAT. Payment via bank transfer is preferred option. Export price is £3799.00. Local taxes/duties will be charged by shippers/customs prior to delivery. KKGB have no control over this. Tell us where you are, and speedy send quote will appear. The VS will be shipped inside the flightcase, so will survive being despatched to (nearly) anywhere in the world. Last one was successfully shipped to Colorado, USA! It is also dual voltage 120<>240Vac, so no grief in that department.
This is a truly RARE instrument (KKGB's last one...). You can find a few VS racks if you look......betcha you will not find many Prophet VS synthesizers?! Generally, musos simply do not want to part with their babies.... FREE (used) Peavey amplifier is now included in the package (UK sales, only).
     Stand out from the herd <> add a VS to your synth collection! <> profit from your prophet!
