“This unit has a few issues please read.

Battery had slight leak this was cleaned up and battery was replaced.

All key contacts recoated and work fine.

Output seems to be a bit quieter but headphones seems fine and louder.

PLEASE NOTE: not all the presets work, perhaps ones of the voices is down. The string pad and piano sounds don’t work on this or sound very faint however the squarewave and bass sounds still work and sound incredible. This needs some attention and is sold as is.

This requires attention if you want it to work as it should.”

p61 “Bought this great Poly-61 Synth in amazing condition 3 months ago from the original owner who took immaculate care of it. I had one in the 80’s and really regretted selling it when my kids were little. I got the fix out of my system, haven’t played it in weeks and have decided to sell it. It’s almost like new and has a really great case as well as all the original manuals. The original owner had taken some great notes and those are included as well. All the keys and functions worked perfectly. It’s too heavy to ship so I’m selling it as a pick up only.” Link

usedkorgpoly1 “I hooked it up and it seems to work good. I don’t know how to edit it or anything like that. Some people love these things. I rather buy something new.
I did notice that the low C key, sometimes gets contact and sometimes doesn’t . (first key on the left side) Also the low e flat key (the 4th key on the left side) doesn’t get contact. I think I may have heard it make contact a couple of times. I’ve only played this keyboard for about 30 minuets. I’m assuming the 2 keys that I mentioned need the contacts cleaned. I’ve only tested the headphone and output…none of the other inputs and outputs have been tested. Sold AS IS.” Link

poly61 “Amazing condition for its age, mostly perfect but a small amount of wear to the wood. Everything is working as it should. All pots and buttons are fully functional. Solid, honest analog sound. The battery has been replaced for a nice new battery (that will not leak and damaged your boards – this is a famous fault on the Poly 61 that is very easy to avoid).” Link

p61 “It powers up, makes sounds, changes with buttons, mod stick functions 4 directions, but the tuning is very strange. Seems to change as it warms up. Someone made repairs so please see the second picture.

I took it to a local shop and the tech pointed out the battery had been replaced, and the ribbon connector was removed and the ribbon was soldiered to the board on the bottom. The black connector that was removed was still taped to the inside of the faceplate, but it has a broken pin off it. Might have been part of the original repair.

I just don’t know this keyboard and I have lost interest to research it myself.

Selling it as-is for parts/repair. I’ve tried to detail the wear and damages to the body so please also check the photos. I’m sure it’s a repair for the right person out there as I’ve found a lot of info on message forums and doing a Google search.” Link

Keyboard powers on, All of the buttons and switches seem to be in decent shape and sometimes the display comes on however sometimes it does not. There is no sound, one of the keys has a pretty good size scratch through it and keyboard has wear and dings from use and age. I opened the unit (Which was already missing a few screws) and found one of the boards (The Green One) has quite allot of corrosion (See photos), No other testing was done.

61 “The korg Poly 61 keyboard is being sold AS IS for PARTS or REPAIR.
It DOES power on, but as you can see from the pictures that the display isn’t showing up correctly. After pressing a bunch of random buttons, I was able to get a low drowning synth sound from it. Other than that I could not get any other sounds from it.
I’m assuming that it needs a new internal battery and cleaned.
The power cord was spliced together (see pictures)
The housing for the pitch bend seems loose ( like someone forgot to put a screw in)
It’s hard to tell from the pictures, but It DOES have what looks to be paint or Spackle drops on it. (like someone was remodeling a room where the keyboard was…and it got over spray on it. I started cleaning it off…so I do know most if not all of it will clean up)” Link

p61 “I took it apart a while ago with the intent to repair it, but it’s going to require a new cpu board so my laziness is your gain! The original cpu (included) was badly damaged by acid leaking from the original battery. Acid damage was only on the cpu board. I initially thought I could clean the board and save it, even bought a replacement battery for it (included) and you might be able to, but you would certainly need to be willing to replace a lot of components and spend serious time repairing traces. The replacement battery has different size connectors than the board and requires a little tweaking to get connected from what I read when I was going to repair it, which checks out to look at it, but it is in fact the correct battery. I see one cpu board on ebay for about $100usd, this would definitely be a more rational approach than repair. Had I been thinking I’d have written down some notes about condition before I opened it, I know it was turning on, I’m pretty sure I was just getting one note on any key and not changing with reset, no response to the screen, but it’s been a few months and I’m not positive. Because of this I can’t vouch for the rest of the electronics beyond what I can show in pictures. ” Link

ued-korg-poly61 “You are bidding on my Korg Poly 61 analogue synth. The synth is in good cosmetic condition, the things to mention are: the right side panel is missing a piece of the finish, you can see that on one of the photos; the tip of middle E key has been broken and put back together; the back jack outs need tightening. The synth has been in storage, and fires up fine, but I would recommend a service and a contact clean. Otherwise an awesome sounding synth in good condition for an instrument released in 1982. The synth will be packed well and shipped in a custom made hard box.” Link

korgpoly61 “I have a Korg Poly 61 synth for sale that I’ve modded with a Tubbutec Modypoly CPU. This mod adds sustain pedal in, MIDI in/out, additional play modes (unison, 2-voice, 3-voice), S/H + tri LFO for filter, and a powerarp mode. This synth sounds AWESOME!!

Minor issues:
– The pitch bend bends a little less in the bend down position vs bend up, so if you’re bending up a whole step, you might only be bending down 3/4 step. Not sure how to fix this, but seems like it can be worked around.

– The MIDI out jack has a tight fit and didn’t come out perfectly circular on the drilling. I sanded down any sharp edges.

– The photos show missing screws on the main control panel – that’s just because I took the photos before I put the screws back in. No worries, they will be included and put back together prior to ship.” Link

korg-poly-61m ” Selling all of my music gear this week. This listing is for a mega-rare vintage 80s Korg Poly61M analog synthesizer. You may come across a Poly61 from time to time…but you’ll hardly ever see the 61M. This one was rarer and sold with factory MIDI in/out. This synth just sounds mean. I don’t know why so many people go nuts over the same old same olds (i.e. – Juno 60) when there are lesser-exploited classics like this still out there.

This synth is in amazing condition. All of the keys and controls respond 100%. If you’ve used one of these vintage Korgs before, you know that the buttons take some finessing. They were like that when new. I replaced a couple that were more problematic and worked with it just find with the others as-is.

The internal battery on these synths has been known to leak. This one never has. The board is perfectly clean. I replaced the battery again myself about 2 years ago. See photos.

Cosmetically it is fantastic as well. No major blemishes, just some small marks hardly noticeable. A bit of crimping on the side corners but not bad at all.” Link

used-61 “I got this from a musician who used it for live gigs. Has some scratches and scuffs but comes with a gig bag.

Keyboard has one key repaired see pictures. Some of the keys didn’t fire but when I read some online forums they said it was a common issue with this keyboard and that the contacts needed to be cleaned. That is above my pay grade.

I plugged it in and got some sounds out of most of the keys. I got the synthesizer to work, changed the attacks etc. and manipulated the joystick. All seems fine other than some of the keys not firing and the keys seeming stiff – another common issue with this keyboard.

This keyboard makes some cool Pink Floyd kind of sounds. Needs some work but in the hands of someone who knows what they are doing this is a cool vintage analog synth.

This is not the later MIDI version this is straight a analog time capsule. ” Link

******As for the condition, it has been fully tested and is in working order but there are a couple issues you should take note of before deciding to purchase. First off the volume pot is a bit scratchy when being turned but once dialed in there are no issues. Secondly and most importantly a good handful of the buttons are finicky. What I mean by this is that they sometimes don’t register or double click. They do all work but you have to find the sweet spot and this can get a bit irritating when programming. I would assume both of these issues could be addressed with a bit of contact cleaning but I cannot be sure and they may require you to replace some buttons.

As for everything else it is fully functional. All keys are working and in good condition. The arpeggiator is functions and properly recognizing and syncing to triggers. The write function for programming is working and allows you to properly save patches. The joystick and joystick amount knobs are all good. All outputs sound fine. And the tape load is working great which I have used to load the original factory patches for you.

As for cosmetic condition as you can see from the pictures the unit is pretty clean with some minor scuffs and scratches. ” Link
