These repairs costed 90€ and was refunded back to me by the seller. And yes, he is from Holland.

Hope you get yours fixed, MS-20 is a bitchin' synth!

Thank you so much for getting back to me. ok then , so its not the same ms 20 , though both have the exact same problems , and , same seller .

So far , he is still sticking to the company line of "all checked all serviced..." and has asked what do i want to do ... i want him to pay for the repairs , im just waiting for a quote . if he gives me any headache , i might even fly out there and ask for a replacement of a refund

Thanks once again
( and yes they are amazing )
