Analogue heaven: Limited edition build your own 1970s Korg MS-20 synth kit

Looking for an interesting weekend project? We have just the thing. In fact, once you've got this limited edition build your own Korg MS-20 synth kit, you'll have plenty more weekends of fun playing on it.

Yes, you can recreate early electronic classics with your very own vintage synthesiser, although you will have to build it first. That might not be as hard as you imagine, as this version of the kit really just requires you to put the parts together. There's no soldering or electrical knowledge required.

Once together, this is an exact replica of the pioneering 1970s synth (overseen by the original engineers) and as such, gives you all the sounds of that original analogue instrument, plus a few from a later generation. On top of that, there are new MIDI input and USB connections to use it in the modern arena.

Only 1,000 kits will be available, each with an authenric manual and packaging, so you might want to get your name down somewhere if you want one. The shelf date is March and the price is listed as $1,400, which works out at around £685.
