Casio, CZ-101 @ 08 August 2017, “No Comments”

“For auction is one Casio CZ-101. This thing is in great condition. The battery compartment looks good and when disassembled the board was nice and clean. I did not see any blown capacitors, leaks, or broken traces but the unit powers up with some lights remaining on (as seen in one of the photos) and the screen is blank. Not sure if it is an easy fix or not but the repair seems to be beyond my expertise level (or at least exceeds my free time). Anyways, I am selling this to make room for more projects or synthesizers… and a baby (I hope that last bit encourages some bids!)

Personally I love this instrument. While the CZ-1 is awesome, I found it much faster to produce sounds with this little guy and the sounds are just as great. While very similar, I have found some of the sounds I have created with the CZ-101 to be unique and could not replicate them with the CZ-1. I found my patches to be superior. This can be said for other Casio synths, like the HT/HZ series, which makes it much harder to buy just one. The CZ-101 is great for a pinch, the straps are nice, and if space is limited it makes for a nice MIDI controller (or for a source instrument. Just plug it in and tuck it away and use your favorite controller.)

No power supply is supplied. The lights in the picture are by 6 D batteries (not included).” Link

“Selling a CASIO CZ-101 Synthesizer Keyboard. Keyboard has been tested and working. Looks to be in good condition, HOWEVER, this keyboard once belonged to a school and they engraved a few words around the keyboard, SO IT’S VERY IMPORTANT TO LOOK AT ALL IMAGES CAREFULLY TO SELL WHERE THE WORDS ARE. Also the foam for the battery cover is pretty much done and may need to be replaced, covered, or removed. What you see is what you’ll get.”

“Up for sale is my LCD modified and overhauled/refurb’d Casio CZ-101

LCD was changed out for a new blue backlit display. This makes the synth much easier to see in either full light or in dark studios!
I cannot stress how important it is to have this type of display. The original display is such a pain to see and causes much frustration when trying to go in and program those cool and wild sounds this synth is capable of.

Also…
Synth was completely disassembled, all buttons and contacts carefully cleaned and restored to full functionality.
THE DC ADAPTER POWER JACK was changed from the hard to find Casio jack to the more common larger jack so it will be easier to locate a replacement AC Adapter if one is needed.

All buttons work. All the keys work. All features including MIDI works.
Synth has been cleaned up and ready for hours of enjoyment!

Please note the case is not in perfect condition.
There are a few scratches on the face and the back has many scratches.
After 34 years, you’ll have a few scratches and dings on you too!

Additionally the “Keytar” pegs have been removed (who uses those things??) and the right side mounting hole has a partial breakage in the hole.. just cosmetic and you’d never see it if you are simply playing it 😉
Trust me, you don’t want those pegs! Try storing the little synth on its end and you quickly realize they are a PITA and can cause damage to the synth either at the mount holes(like it already did..) or letting it tip over and whack into the floor!” Link

ca101 “Hello. Up for auction is a sweet little mini synth – the Casio CZ101. Works great – i’ve owned it for a few years and never had any issues. All keys work. Has some minor cosmetic flaws as would be expected for a synth of its age. The power plug is a little jacked – see pics – but works. Power adapter not included. Runs good on batteries; battery cover is included, batteries not included. Still has the side attachments – strap it on and rock out! Memory cartridge included as a bonus. Like all vintage gear – sold as is – but guaranteed not to be DOA. I tested everything and even videoed it in action before listing.” Link

cz101 “Thanks for viewing this auction. Here is a great find. It is a vintage synthesizer keyboard, model is CZ-101, manufactured by Casio. Take a look at the pictures and judge this one for yourself. Keyboard comes to you in used but good condition for the age. Keyboard powers up, lights illuminate when buttons depressed and LCD display shows well. I am no expert with this particular keyboard so I am guessing that it has no internal speaker system. I plugged this one into my guitar amp and I was impressed. Keyboard sounds out nicely and I was able to play music with it. I was also able to rotate the knob/dial on the left and make siren like or distort the sounds. I do not know how to fully operate or program this one so I cannot guarantee that everything functions as it should but from what I was able to do and for the condition, I would be making a guess that it does. On that note, so to speak, I am offering it as is. All keys are present and depress/release nicely. Battery compartment located on the backside. Compartment door is present and intact. it opens/locks closed as it should to secure batteries. Unit powers with 6 D cell batteries and I will include a fresh set if you are the winning bidder. Feel free to email me with any questions. I will be happy to answer. Whether you collect this type/brand of item or just looking for a great synthesizing keyboard, look no further. This is the one you want.”

cz101 “A blast from the 80’s! One of the earliest digital synthesizers made, with mini keys, guitar strap pegs, battery power. But it is professional quality for this time period, and a great way to learn about programming and digital synthesis.

I bought this new and played it quite a bit during the mid 1980s. It’s been in a closet ever since, but I’ve pulled it out, put in 6 fresh D batteries, and started having fun again. It appears that everything still works – it’s an oldie so it has a few scratches on it but overall it looks pretty good. It does not have the power adapter but does run on batteries if you’d like or you can buy a cheap one anywhere. The only issue I’ve discovered is the volume slider is a little scratchy/ fuzzy when sliding up or down, but probably just needs to be cleaned well.” Link

cz101 “Casio CZ-101 Synthesizer

Manuals and Power Supply – all original

Excellent Condition (see photos)

Purchase years ago early 80’S for my children after reading electrical engineering article on Digital sound synthesis.
Hardly used – kids not interested it just sat in a drawer for over 20 years. Note the keyboard case is near pristine – wear on lettering about nonexistent.

Manuals like new – doubt keyboard ever programed – no batteries used ever.

To check functions – all presets work – note took photos with different settings to show lights working. Wheel changes pitch – programing changes show on LCD screen. Sounds are great (the bass sounds like the “Seinfield show music” ) organ is nice and are all the others. All keys work and you can transpose – as a non-musician it seems to work perfectly to me.

Case has very little scratches and no cracks – will ship with robust packing.
The keyboard is small – only saw one used — by the keyboard player with a jazz group Weather Report. Nice and portable.” Link

cz101 “This is a vintage CASIO CZ-101 Keyboard Synthesizer. It has 49 keys with a MIDI. When the 6 D batteries were installed it powered up, all the red lights came on the unit, including the LCD panel. If you plug in an external headphone you get sound out of the keyboard, but if you don’t have the headphone connected to the unit there isn’t sound. I’m not sure if this is how it was designed to work or not. Therefore, it is being sold as is, and as tested.” Link

cz-101 “Hello and good day to you. Today for your consideration is a Casio CZ 101 Synthesizer.

It works and is in good condition. All of the buttons and slides/ pitch bend work. Volume control is a bit scratchy though. The adapter is not original, but has the proper milliamp and voltage. The synthesizer is 30 years old, so it is sold as is. Also, it has minor cosmetic issues due to age. Refer to pictures.

I love this synthesizer, however it has served its purpose and does not fit in sonically with my new project. ” Link

101 “This Casio CZ-101 needs some work, please read carefully. I didn’t list it for parts/not working because it does turn on and will produce sound. However, there is something wrong with the outputs – neither the Line Out nor the Headphone output works as it should. This is probably a relatively easy fix for somebody handy with a soldering iron. All I can tell you is that I am able to get the Line Out to function, but only if the 1/4” plug is held at an angle when in the jack (see pics). I have not had the same luck with the Headphone output, however there is a very faint signal present with the volume all the way up.

There are a couple of other issues with this CZ-101 that I have tried to document in the pics. You will see that one of the keys is chipped, and another one lifts up. Notice also that the volume slider is slightly bent. This fortunately has never affected the functionality (the slider works as intended). There is also a fairly deep scratch towards the right side of the unit, shown in one of the pics.

Otherwise, everything works, and I have to say, this CZ-101 carries an easter egg or two, but maybe this synth’s “quirks” are common knowledge at this point.

I am selling this unit as-is, so make sure you know what you’re getting into if you bid. Also included will be one cartridge and a 9VDC adapter.” Link

xz101 “I found a power supply and it works great. Power supply is not included.

Some of the buttons are sticky, the battery compartment is rusty and the screws were drilled out within the compartment, and there is one key missing. (See photos)

This is a cool sounding synth.

Power supply is NOT included. FYI, the Casio uses a differently shaped plug at the end of the power supply so make sure whichever one you get fits. ” Link

101 “This CZ 101 was purchased by me when they first came out. It shows wear on the underside from sliding it on and off the keyboard stand (photo’s 4 & 5). The rest shows very little wear for a keyboard that’s over 30 years old but I did include a photo of the left side of the face to show a minor blemish. I do not have the owners manual but it can be downloaded in a PDF file for free on line and I encourage the buyer to download the manual immediately after purchase to have it when the CZ 101 arrives. I have the Data Source book which will explain how to program many more sounds. The back of the book and a few of the back inside pages are stained but easily readable as you can see in the photos.” Link
