Korg MS10/MS20 Seller on eBay

Postby sequentialsoftshock » Tue Jan 15, 2013 11:30 pm

There's a seller (buyjapan001) on eBay who I bought my MS10 & MS20 off of, and it seems like he always has a few of these. Just wondering how you think he acquires them since his posts are very sparse. They both were in good condition & had US power supplies. Do you think these were ones that sat at Korg HQ for a long time & were then purchased, or were leased by korg originally ? I'm just curious as to the path which would have led them to Japan with US plugs.

Questions aside, I would recommend this seller ! Definitely no issue, except that prices are a bit high. Shipping was about $100 both times, but I ordered on a Wednesday both times (funny) & received by Saturday !

I'm curious too. Seems like there are a lot of MS20's left in Japan?

This has been happening for many years whether it be casual, occasional sellers on Ebay or someone much larger and organized like Modeless Factory.

Yes, there seems to be a lot of vintage Japanese synths floating around Japan still that are getting sold abroad but far less than there were 3-4 years ago.
