Elka Synthex - Broken Key

Hi there,

In the german forum sequencer.de I got the tip to ask my following question here and I shall send greetings to Sam Mims from Florian. Maybe he will read it.

So I inherited an Elka Synthex and I would love to sell it. But before I do that I would like to fix a broken C-Key.
Unfortunately I saw that at the moment no replacement keys are available in the store but I might be able to glue the missing part. I just can’t figure out how to take out the key. I found out how to open up the top and how to flip the keyboard up. But everything from then scares me to break even more. Any ideas? Anybody who has done a key replacement on an ELKA Synthex?

Thank you so much. Have a great day.
Cheers, Lajos from Berlin Germany

Hi Lajos! We have not had a Synthex here before, so I can’t be of much help in guiding you. We are always interested in buying synths like this (we usually buy them before any repairs are done - so this might save you some trouble). If you are interested in selling this to us, please contact me by email: sam@syntaur.com. Thanks!
