 Model VCS3 brand new, boxed!
 Description I have had it for about a year now….bought it new from Robin Wood at EMS after 23 years on his waiting list…. I had paid him a deposit in 2000 on one of the extremely limited number that EMS were manufacturing. I had completely forgotten about that over the years, but in 2021 had a letter from him saying that I was next in line for my instrument. The VCS has been unpacked so that I could photograph it, but was then wrapped and boxed up again, and has never ever been used. It is in brand new condition as you should be able to see from the photos. And because it is in the original EMS shipping carton it will be easy to ship or collect. There are two factory modifications that were included by EMS in it’s construction. They were the 2 modifications that Robin most highly recommended and don’t change the original performance in any way, except of course expanding it’s capability They are as follows X10 Envelope Attack/Decay time multiplier (pull/push pot on Decay) Filter unslew switchable (pull/push pot on Response)
