This is a vintage 1973 EMS Synthi Hi-Fli analog synthesizer multi-effect processor. This example, serial number 0311, is in very excellent all original condition. It includes a pair of reissue expression pedals, as well as, 8 of 9 original EMS slider caps. This 220v unit has been completely tested and it works perfectly. Designed by David Cockerell (designer of the EH Micro Synth and Small Stone) in 1971, it is estimated that EMS produced only 350 units in total. Extremely rare and incredibly desirable, this unit is perhaps best known for providing incredible synth textures to David Gilmour’s rig.
Unbelievably dynamic with a plethora of rich analog synth sounds, the EMS is one of the most unique and special synth effects in existence. Originally, at £350 in 1973, these units sold for the equivalent of $7,000.00 US in today’s money.
