“This is my Yamaha CS-5. Purchased by me in 1981 – barely used, not gigged. Original manufacturers manual also included. Great authentic synthesiser sounds – good for studio recording and gigging.” Link

“This is a vintage analog Yamaha CS-5 Synthesizer. It is used, has age wear, masking tape on some of the keys, AM sticker on front and a working slide pitch knob but the top of the knob is broken off. It is in working condition and has lots of working effects and settings which can produce really cool 60′s/70′s vintage sounds. No manual but you can download the manual in pdf form from the Yamaha site (see photos).” Link

“Verkaufe hier meinen YAMAHA CS5.

Er weist optisch Gebrauchsspuren auf, funktioniert aber einwandfrei.
Alle Tasten funktionieren und auch die Potis reagiern alle. Lediglich der LFO Mod Poti kratzt manchmal – braucht wohl etwas Kontaktspray!?

Der Synthie lässt sich auf 110, 130, 220 oder 240 Volt einstellen.
Die Anleitung kann ich leider nicht finden, aber diese kann man sicherlich im Netz runterladen. Außerdem erklärt sich der Synth quasi von selbst. Wenn ich sie doch noch finden sollte, lege ich sie natürlich bei.

Ich verkaufe das Gerät eigentlich nur, weil ich es nur sehr selten benutze und es die meiste Zeit abgedeckt rumsteht. Dafür ist der Synth dann doch zu schade. Jemand anderes kann bestimmt mehr damit anfangen.” Link

“Verkaufe Yamaha CS-5 mit kleinen Macken und fehlender Taste. Der Synth funktioniert weitestgehend tadellos, nur das Fusslagen-Poti spinnt beim umschalten manchmal, ein bisschen reinigen dürfte da Abhilfe schaffen.

Ansonsten funktionieren alle Poti einwandfrei, kaum Kratzen oder ähnliches, die Stimmung ist sehr akkurat, wie ich mittels Stimmgerät überprüft habe.

Auch die externen Trigger und CV Inputs funktionieren bestens, mit einem Korg MS10 konnte ich die Klangerzeugung ansteuern. Also wird das auch mit einem Midi to CV Converter gehen, wenn man so etwas vorhaben sollte.” Link

“This is a used vintage Yamaha CS 5 analog monophonic synthesizer. I have had it for over two years now and it works great. The oscillator is in tune, all the keys work and play great. All the pots are clean and the whole synth feels solid. Made in Japan not sure what year it is but I know Yamaha made these from 1979 to 1983. It has some scratches on the sides and bottom, but overall in pretty good condition considering its age. ” Link

“YOU ARE BIDDING ON A YAMAHA CS-5 ELECTRIC SYNTHESIZER. IT APPEARS TO BE IN GOOD WORKING AND PHYSICAL CONDITION. I FOUND THIS IN MY GRANDFATHERS ATTIC, IT POWERS ON BUT I HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO TEST ALL THE BUTTONS AND KNOBS AND OUTLETS FOR IT. MY FATHER SAID HIS OLDER BROTHER USED TO PLAY ON IT FOR A WHILE AND LAST HE KNEW IT WORKED GREAT, IT JUST WENT OUT OF STYLE. I AM SELLING IT AS-IS THOUGH, SINCE I CAN’T FULLY TEST IT. SORRY.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Im Mittelpunkt dieses Angebotes steht

1 Yamaha CS-5 Analog Synthesizer .

Das Gehäuse und alle Dreh- und Kippschalter sind unbeschädigt und komplett.
Keine angestossenen Ecken oder Kanten, insgesamt präsentiert sich der CS5 super für sein Alter.
Soweit ich feststellen konnte sind alle Schalter, Drehregler und Tasten einwandfrei.
Der Soundcheck mit einem Gitarrenverstärker war erfolgreich, der CS-5 lebt.
Leider kann ich, mangels Vergleich, nicht beurteilen ob alle möglichen Klangvariablen ( Filter,Pass,usw. ) noch 100% wie bei Auslieferung funken.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

‘Basic synth functionality has been tested. The unit powers up and plays fine, but the main power LED does not light up. The LFO LED blinks fine. Keyboard plays well, and synth VCO, VCA, VCF parameters all seem to work ok. Sounds good.

There are no major scratches or marks, no bent knobs or anything like that. But overall condition looks a little bit used, quite average for Japanese gear. It’s a nice and compact synth, so is easy to fit into a studio.

Shipping is from japan and is insured. Takes 2-3 weeks, usually.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Yamaha Cs 5 monosynth Great little synth for bass Cosmetically in great shape !

Some minor issues – The pitch bend act’s a bit screwy and the external audio input needs repaired as my idiot mate overloaded the signal (Simple repairs for the more electronically minded !) Synth was bought from Analogue Solution in Ex Cond around 1998 and has been lying unloved in my synth cupboard for around 5 years !” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Up for an auction is a very rare Yamaha CS 5,.

Please refer to the photos for cosmetic issue.

This synth is fully working but I believe some of the buttons/knobs need some attention i.e. there is some scratching or irregular behaviour.

The synth is sold as described and as seen.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“In working order, I have tested the EXT-IN using another synth (yamaha DX100 also for sale, see other items) the EXT-IN is a cool feature of this synth and allows for the filler to be used on an external sound source and then the various knobs to be tweaked in real time to trigger some amazing sounds.

This synth pre-dates midi but does have the CV out which can be used with a MIDI convertor.
I have tested all the Knobs and switches, all do their job, a couple of crackles on the VCA intial Level and the VCF switch, but all the main switches/knobs like the Cut off Freq, Resonance work just fine.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

cs5 “It was taken in on trade and the keyboard is in overall good condition. I plugged it in and tried all of the keys and they all work. The high F and the keys to the right of it need to be adjusted. If you look in picture 3 the high F is at a slight angle and the other keys feel a little tight. They all went down and returned the way they are supposed to.

All of the knobs seem to work good. Lots of good sounds.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
