The full size MS-20 kit released last year started at $1400. Maybe due to being limited edition? The street price on the MS-20 mini is $599.

All should be revealed real soon.

I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

Note the difference. Also, + Filter x2. Still, the gap always did seem kinda wide to me.

Yes I did. Did you notice that it's an Australian store who put that video up? ;)

I find it very funny that people actually think that this could be $9999. :lol:

Well it's much improved on the original; it's got V/Oct input, osc sync, PWM input, switchable filter types and probably other stuff I haven't noticed yet. It's kind of exactly what I feel a modern MS-20 should be. Now bring on the MS-50 reissue!

Website says $1799 now for MS-20m and SQ-1, ask for special pricing. So maybe $1599 for both
My modular so far: Q104, Q106, Q107, Q108, Q109 x2 , Q116, Q118, Q127 w/Q140, Q130, STG Wave Folder, playing with Moog Voyager, VX-351, CP-251, MF-104M (x2 STEREO!)
