“Casio CZ-1000 Synthesizer- Original owner. Programmable sought after vintage model. Never played outside the home. Good cosmetic condition though not perfect- does have signs of wear for its age. Always worked fine but haven’t played it in years. Don’t have the original adapter but have Radio Shack one. Went to turn it on and it doesn’t work. This may be an easy fix or maybe used for parts. ” Link
” 29 keys, casio cz-1000 keyboard used no cords” Link

“Casio CZ-1000, one of the hidden gems from the eighties. Uses Phase Modulation technology. I’m replacing this one with the same model, because I don’t have time to deal with the power issue, it keeps cutting power, with a clacking kind of noise. Only bid please if you believe you can fix it or want for other parts, Everything else works great. Ac input is fine, Volume side a bit noisy. But I love these synths and uses them relentlessly in Music Production, making money, sound after than any virtual synth.” Link
“Synth in good condition. Has miscellaneous scratches dents etc ( please see pics ) I tested basic functions , buttons and they work. Sound is retro classic and cool. No AC adapter, works with batteries. ” Link

“This unit is being sold for parts/in not working condition. The unit powers up, but does not function properly. The main output jack doesn’t work and has a loud hum. The headphone output works but sometimes the connection is dirty/loose. The sounds and presets are there, but many of them sound distorted. The LCD screen has a dead line in the middle, but you can still read what it says. The Value Up/Load button works but you have to press it really hard. The Master Tune buttons don’t seem to work. The LED light above DCA 1 Env doesn’t light, but the button works. All of the keys work. It’s missing the battery cover, and there is corrosion there. The overlay is coming unstuck in places and has some pockets of air in places. Someone could get some interesting sounds out of it as is, but that depends on taste, as it’s certainly not working properly. Cosmetically, it’s worn and a little beat up looking, please see all the pictures for more details. Power adapter not included.” Link
“Casio CZ-1000 in acceptable condition with power adapter. I am not the original owner of this synth. Powers on with no issues and has been tested to play through the line out. Cosmetics are acceptable (scuffs and dings and wear from age and use) a little dusty and has some sticker residue on the keys. Could use a good cleaning. All keys and buttons show their functions (keys play great, no sticking) come up on the display. Power stays on just fine, sounds are great.” Link
“Vintage casio cz-1000 this was tested with a power cord which works good, key 3 doesnt work, shown in my pictures, and the save key its stuck, but besides that , everything else works, this keyboard was dusty so if you invest the time to clean it really well , it will work even better, if you try to use batteries, does not work 100% iam guessing cause of dirt that it used to have,” Link
“I’m saying goodbye to this digital synthesizer. I don’t play it enough, and don’t feel like bringing it with me on an upcoming move. It’s a weird guy. It’s capable of a lot, from bass to pads to weird gurgly alien noises. There’s an iPad app that makes it a bit easier to program.
5 of the keys are no longer responsive, but it might just need a cleaning. I’ve been using a midi keyboard to get around the issue.
No power adapter, but it takes the usual 9v.” Link
” Casio CZ-1000 synthesizer! A classic from the 1980s; improved sound and control over the wildly-popular CZ-101. This one works well, comes with an non-original power supply, but no battery cover. ” Link
“I used this back when i was in bands in the 80s so yeah its for sale now” Link
POWER SUPPLY BOARD IS CRACKED. LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE TRIED TO MODIFY IT, BUT I THINK IT’S TOAST. SYNTH COULD BE FINE, OTHER THAN THAT, BUT THERE’S NO WAY TO TELL.
SOLD AS IS
MISSING BATTERY COVER ON BOTTOM
IT’S ACTUALLY IN PRETTY GREAT SHAPE, ASIDE FROM THE WHOLE NOT WORKING THING. 😉
WOULD BE A GREAT WAY TO SOURCE BITS AND BOBS FOR ANOTHER CZ SYNTH.” Link
The Casio CZ-1000 was the second programmable Casio synthesizer after the CZ-101, and is the full key size version of that synthesizer. All other characteristics are similar.
It uses the phase distortion synthesis related to all other Casio CZ synthesizers models. It was also one of the first low cost multi-timbral synthesizers with normal-sized keyboard.” Link
” Used Casio CZ-1000 synthesizer in great condition. Keys, buttons, pitch bend, volume slide, and power adapter all work great. Cartridge port, battery housing, and all other ports are very clean without rust or acid corrosion. Some superficial scratches around the frame (see pictures).” Link
“Condition: Tested, Working, shows some cosmetic wear
Good luck bidding.” Link
“In good shape minor scratches . With this keyboard you can design your own sounds from scratch. Case if you want $25.00 extra..” Link
Used, has some Minor surface blemishes,
but still in a Great working shape.
Everything Tested and Works Perfect !
Sounds Amazing !
Used only in home studio.
Missing the power cord. It will run on batteries or you can purchase the power cord on line.
Comes with the original box and dust cover.
Real Vintage !” Link
Perfectly working Casio CZ-1000. Adding a RA-3 Cartridge with 16 additional more analogish presets. Plenty life left in the battery of the RAM card.
The second and third picture show that the cartridge works – the number of the respective preset shown on the display corresponds to the number of the lit up membrane button.
Included is a non-OEM power supply. The original Casio AD-5 was lost during a move. Its a 9V 850mA, tip negative. Mine only sports 800 mA but it works fine. I’ve seen CZ-1000 paired with 800mA’s
Noticeable cosmetic drawbacks are a chip under one of the white keys (pic 6), mildly peeling membrane button overlay on the right corner (pic 5). Not shown are a few scratches on the bottom plate.
The battery compartment is clean and works well if loaded with six D’s. I used that way quite often.
The manual folder is a collection of helpful files found online. There are plenty of them. You can also find sysex files to load to the internal memory (which is currently empty).
I strongly recommend the book “An Insider’s Guide to Casio CZ Synthesizers” by Andrew Schlesinger which, for some reason, can be found in pdf format when looked for on the web.” Link
“Casio CZ-1000 digital vintage synthesizer. Just serviced, tested and fully cleaned inside and out. Minor signs of use but functionally great. Includes aftermarket power supply.” Link
“POWERS UP WITH BATTERIES. I DO NOT HAVE THE POWER SUPPLY. MOST FUNCTIONS SEEM TO WORK. TESTED IT WITH HEAD PHONES AND i DID NOT HEAR ANY AUDIO. THEREFORE i AM SELLING IT AS-IS FOR PARTS. NO RETURNS” Link
” This is a pretty cool synth if you are a really into creating your own sounds from scratch. That said, you better be willing to put in the effort with a machine like this or it’s probably not worth your time. Those that are seeking this item usually know what they are getting into. I do not have the original power supply for this item, though I have a roland power supply that is comparable that you can have with the keyboard. It also comes with a gig bag. It’s in pretty good shape cosmetically, especially for a 30 year old instrument.” Link
“Casio CZ1000 for sale.
Perfect working order but does not come with a power supply, any multi adapter will do the trick though.” Link
” Not working, and one black key damaged” Link
Item description: Appears to work fine. All electronics appear to work. Does have a few scuffs and scratches from use. Comes with power cord. Sold as is!” Link
“A/C adapter not original, but it works. Same thing goes for the carrying bag. Have not hooked this up to a sound source, but all the little lights work. Bummer about the loose key. Key does not appear to be broken in any way. I’m not going to attempt to shove it back in there, nor am I going to attempt to take keyboard apart. Let’s leave these things to trained professionals. Starting this out at a super low starting price, or snatch it up with a buy it now.” Link
“Item: Vintage 80’s Casio CZ1000 Synthesizer. The CZ1000 is an eight voice, dual oscillator, duo-timbral digital synthesizer, with a 4 octave keyboard. 49 keys. It can run on an adapter (not included) or 6 “D” batteries, included. We tested it out, plugged it into an amplifier and it sounded great, everything is functioning. We did not test out the memory cartridge, as we do not have one. This item was used personally, not professionally, and has been sitting on a shelf for the past 15 years. Comes with the Casio cover. ” Link
“I am selling one Casio CZ1000 synth Keyboard. That has some amazing sounds from the 80″ and now in 2014 they have come back. I will include the keyboard and generic power supply.” Link
“This synth is in good condition. The volume slider has a slight short. All the full sized keys work. All the function buttons work. I don’t think the cartridge is in working condition, but I wasn’t sure how to test it.” Link
