KORG announces Limited Edition MS-20 Kit - Full size, true analog re-release of original MS-20 as a DIY kit

As a follow-up to the in-demand MS-20 Mini, and with musical do-it-yourselfers in mind, Korg has debuted the MS-20 Kit, a limited-edition kit that allows anyone-from musicians to the musically curious-to easily and safely build a working reproduction of Korg's original, iconic MS-20 analog synth. Only 1,000 units will be available worldwide.

The MS-20 version in the kit contains all the original MS-20 product specifications and features. New updates found only in this version include MIDI IN and a USB connector for receiving external MIDI notes. This kit version is also still true analog, with the same circuit path as the original. Also like the original, the MS-20 kit features a complete patch bay with 1/4" connections.

Owners can assemble the kit with no soldering or electrical know-how, using just a few simple tools and picture diagrams. An owner's manual and settings chart from the original MS-20 are also included.

The original MS-20 used different VCF circuits depending on the date of production. Units produced in the earlier period used a filter noted for its distinctive distortion and self-oscillation, while the filter used in later units was a low-noise design with a more mellow character. The new MS-20 Kit provides both filters and easy switching between the two.

The Korg MS-20 Kit will be available in March 2014 for a US Street price of $1399.99.
