as you might know: EMS is quite unavailable for ppl like me, so why not trying the DIY EMS (aks? vcs3?) project..
the best known one should be Jürgen Hailbles VCS3 clone
but I also found this nice EMS-clone-project site..
some DIY and EMS links:
Oldcrow (J.Haible again)
another clone site..
a nice metal-style EMS clone..
