Mint? Where the hell are the vernier controls for the VCOs? And all the silver knob tops seem to have gone walkabout.

This guy should have his head examined.

It's a steal. Smile
(maybe it's a typo and he had one zero too much?)

Ruud, you better not take your Synthi A with you on concerts knowing these prices.

Synthi A will be fine with a chain and handcuff Laughing
The Putney I've seen before going for $7-10K including the keyboard though.

PostPosted: Thu May 12, 2011 1:13 pm    New Synthi A Shipping Reply with quoteBack to top

Just found more info, after 13 years on the waiting list a customer just got his new Synthi A.
When ordered in 1998 the price was £1600, new price of the day is £3000 while the VCS3 is £3200.
After all they may have sorted out component issues and will build to order only.

The last Cricklewood I saw for sale went for more 2,000 US$ *without* its umbilical cord. I should have kept mine, or sold it on eBay instead. Oh, well...

It´s a useless piece of kit, actually.

WOW! It would mean hiring bodyguards! Not to protect us, but to prevent the EMS from being stolen. Kidding aside, nowadays one has to think twice about taking it (and other oldies) on the road. Recently I was very surprised that someone was asking 750 Euro for an ARP Pro Soloist, but later one was sold on Ebay for that amount! Where does it end?

It´s that bloke from Hongkong again.

"Item location: Bedlam" would have been more appropriate.

Could be the same guy, amazing where strange stuff can end up.
I would not be sure how to send $20k anywhere, let alone HK and be sure I get the goods.

Yeah. Now that the prices are sooo high, maybe one should sell one's vintage goodies. But wait, I bought them 'cause I want them!
