THE EML-200 MODULAR SYNTH
One of my favorite toys is the EML-200. It was made by the Electronic Music Laboratories between 1972-1980, and about 400 were manufactured. Mine is in excellent shape, and was purchased from the fine folks at Tone Tweakers (check them out!). It has two oscillators, an LFO, a HPF, a LPF, ring modulators, sample and hold, spring reverb, and more. It seems to be more of an educational, lab-oriented synth than a performance model, but fun nonetheless. If anyone has its companion piece for sale, the EML 300 Manual Controller, please drop me a line care of this blog. Thanks. Also, the 200 was meant to work as an add-on to the EML ElectroComp 101 keyboard synth (which I also own), but as a non-player of keyboards I keep them unconnected.
