“This is an original, 1985 Yamaha DX21, little brother of the legendary DX27. Requires a little work, otherwise a great collector item. Comes with gig bag and owner’s manual (I believe this is a photocopy of the original manual). Link
In fairly good condition for its age, slight scratch to the side of the data entry slider as shown.
LCD bright and the drive works perfectly.
This is truly an amazing synth, though sadly I need more room in my studio.” Link
Cosmetically in fair overall condition, have some marks and scratches and some rust / tape marks here and there.” Link
“Very good condition . Same owner since 1993. Very little use in smoke free home studio . A few very minor surface scratches. All functions work .” Link
” For sale is the classic SY85 workstation keyboard from the early 90′s, everything works as it should except for the floppy disk drive. The keys are clean and have a very good action. Back in the day this keyboard was in the top 5 along side the Roland D50 and the Korg M1 sharing a lot of components with the Korg, as at the time Yamaha owned Korg, most notably is that they use the same keypad, that alone justifies using this as a controller as it has a far superior action to the modern day controller keyboards.
The SY85 has a more powerful sequencer than the Korg and is easier to edit with the addition of the faders and wheel.
The disk drive does not work but everything can still be saved and loaded via midi and as this can be plugged into any Daw it is not really an issue.
It has great sounds and the onboard effects are very good, touch sensitive keys as well as having aftertouch.
Includes the original manuals.” Link
“YAMAHA TG33 TG 33 TONE GENERATOR DYNAMIC VECTOR SYNTHESIZER. Came from a liquidation buyout, unit doesn’t come with a power adapter. Unit is being sold As Is in untested condition. However the unit was tested to power on & we were able to play the demo using headphones but it is untested any further. Unit has scratches & scuff marks, and 1 of the bottom feet is missing.
Due to not having a power adapter & being untested besides being powered on & playing the demo setting through headphones the unit is being sold As Is for parts or repair.” Link

“Up for sale is a vintage Yamaha DX7! It turns on and passes audio, but is being sold AS IS due to being old and not in perfect condition. It’s missing a slider knob, has some discoloration, and includes a Voice ROM cartridge (see pics). I’m guessing it could use a recap, as the noise floor sounds a little high to me, but I also don’t know what’s normal for this model.” Link
Absolutely excellent condition, never toured, never have had any problems with it, sounds perfect ” Link

“Original Yamaha CS01 mono mini analog synth
good honest condition and owned for decades
has some small age related marks only
still a great sounding machine even today
never been taken apart and messed around with
only the pitch slider has recently stopped working
so could probably now do with a service and a clean up inside
but everything else seems to work fine and sound good
both output jack and headphones jack also work fine
not mint but a good synth and a priced to sell bargain” Link
“You are bidding on a used Yamaha SK20 Symphonic Ensemble Synthesizer. The original owner added a strap to the front to make it easier to transport. There is some cosmetic damage as pictured.”
The last key is loose. Might be an easy fix, no idea.
I can get sound out but i really don’t know how this works. The screen seems good but I don’t know how to load the sounds. So it is what it is. The midi out was connected to another unit and it worked well so this is likely operator error.” Link
“Excellent condition comes with midi car and wall plug”
“This auction is for one classic pro keyboard – the iconic Yamaha DX7, in used but excellent condition. With only a few minor scratches, it’s in great cosmetic condition as you can see in the pictures.
The keyboard itself is perfect, all buttons and functions work fine and there are no missing slider knobs. The display looks and works fine, and the internal data battery has plenty of power left in it.
Most of the original factory patches are still programmed in for those classic 80′s sounds.”
Very clean.” Link
“Works great !” Link
More can be read by looking the synth up on Vintage Synth Explorer.”

” I have super rare Yamaha SK-30. This is my baby, and something I spent a lot of time trying to find. And a fair amount of time and money restoring it to perfect working condition. It is your best bet if you are jonzing for the CS-80 sound. It is a string, organ, polysynth, AND monosynth combined. It has built in Ensemble and Tremelo and a really cool vibrato, so you can get all your favorite vintage tones right out of the box.
It has been professionally restored, and all keys, sliders, pots, etc are in great condition. No scratchy pots when adjusting parameters and the preset tones as well as FX buttons engage quickly. Everything works. All slider caps and switches are present. I can tell you from experience it is rare to have everything working. Usually the vibrato or ensemble fx are funky, and can’t be repaired without sourcing ultra rare bucket brigade chips. The tremolo is really cool and speeds up and slows down like a real leslie. I can’t say enough good things about the tone of this beast. It is a 70′s dream machine. I bought it mainly for the string and polysynth, but I was soon blown away at the quality of the mono synth. And the organ was a real surprise. Really legit sounding and the drawbars let you dial in a wide spectrum of tones. Layer everything together at once, and you have the biggest sounding synth section you’ve ever heard.
It is in good condition for its age, but has some typical scratches and roughed up wood edges as you might expect from a keyboard that is nearly 40 years old. But it will likely last another 40 years.”
The synth is in very good condition especially considering its age. All functions have been tested with no problems found.
Serial #: 10238.
Includes case as pictured.”
“Yamaha DX7, in amazingly great shape. Second owner, since 2004. One physical cartridge, with the famous “electric piano 1″. The keyboard itself plays like new: no chipped, wobbly, sticky, etc. keys All keys play at the same tension and attack.. All wheels, switches, soft switches, in perfect working order. I have never had it out of my house or lab; no gigging. A few scratches, previous owner had marked it with an “F”; none of which are noticeable unless you are right on top of it. It comes to you in the original sexy dark brown finish. There are thousands of original and custom patches available on line, we would be happy to help you download and set them up. I must repeat, this Dx7 is in amazingly excellent condition, like a trip to the past. From my own personal collection. ” Link
