Now available for the MS-20 Kit Re-issue!
Class up your original MS-20 synth with some GMUSynth wood side panels. Almost 40 years after it's release, the Korg MS-20 is still one of the most revered and sought after Korg synths of all time. And, it has one of the most recognizable shapes of all synthesizers. Unfortunately, it's covered in some unsightly black plastic panels that quite frankly cheapens it's stature.
Fix this with some gorgeous new side panels made from select hardwoods. The GMUSynth MS-20 side panels follow the exact profile of the original panels, including the inner groove detail on the sides. The original left hand panel included an extruded portion extending out from the side in order to accomodate the internal wheel mechanism. The GMUSynth panels eliminate this design 'defect' by cutting the panels wider so the wheel sits completely recessed. This yields a more consistent look from side to side.
Note these panels are available for the Vintage MS line that fit the MS-10, VC-10, and MS-20. They're now also available for the 2015 Full Size Kit Re-issue. Looking for MS-20 Mini panels?
Available woods will vary from time to time. If you want a different wood, contact us for a special request. One note...the MS-20 is a very wide panel. It requires rough boards of at least 11 inches, which can be very hard to find in furniture grade woods suitable for making synth panels. These are also more costly! Because of the difficulty in sourcing these wide boards, woods will only be offered if the raw lumber is in stock. (It may appear sold out otherwise.) If the wood you want isn't available, contact us to request it.
The panels mounts using the original screws from the synth, although new hardware is available for a small cost.
Installation requires just a screw driver. No electronics or synth repair knowledge is required.
