“mega awesome yamaha dx7s
you will know this from a million records
this has had a hard life..
cracks on the casing on the end- seems solid enough though
there is 1 spring missing from the lowest key and the highest key sits a couple of mm higher than it should
as far as i can tell everything works great – all the keys,all the buttons
im not sure the aftertouch works… its quite a complex thing to get my head round so i maybe havent turned it on somewhere?
screen lights up green
breath controller works with it!
was a good idea but i really am shit on keyboard – a one finger monosynth is more my style
its a heavy beast – weighs sooo much more than the roland sh2000 im selling
the sounds on this are absolutely stunning
this has a memory cartridge as well
think this is the 2nd version of the dx7 with better buttons and much more memory than the original?” Link
“mega awesome yamaha dx7s
“This is a Yamaha DX7s Digital Programmable Algorithm Synthesizer keyboard with one data rom cartridge. It was pulled working from an audio production bay a long while back and has been sitting in the facility’s air conditioned storage room since then.
The long and short of this keyboard is that it may work or it may not. It powers on and comes up with the display exactly as you see it in the pictures. I don’t know how to service or program it. It may just need someone who knows what they’re doing or it may not be working, so it’s being offered for Parts or Restore. Please bid on this as if it is NOT working just to be safe.
At the very least it’s chock-full of great parts! Heck, just the cartridge may be worth the starting price… (of course I have no way to test it either)… ” Link
“Yamaha DX7 S Synthesiser. This is a vintage 198os synthesizer in good working order as far as we can tell.
It has a few scratches here and there.
On start up it has a message Voice- change battery, and the diagnostic says 0.7v on the battery so this may need changing.
There is one key which has been repaired but plays OK. I have taken a photo to show it close up so you can see but replacements can be bought cheaply on ebay if required.
There is a Cartridge ROM with this and a Quiklok systems foldable stand.” Link
DX7 range remains one of the best-selling synthesizers of all time.
Programable using FM synthesis and one of the first instruments to have midi.
Used but fully working, has the odd mark but not bad for age.
Includes 1x cartridge, sustain pedal, sheet rack, manual (some pages have fallen apart, manual is available free online as a pdf file) and original box.” Link

“The keyboard is in excellent shape but the original box is in rough shape.” Link
This is the updated version with push-buttons, much sturdier than the first dx7 with its cheap membrane buttons.
Unit is in great cosmetic condition. I plugged it in after not using it for a while and everything seemed to work. It sounds amazing ! Sad to see this one go..
There’s a message displayed when power is turned on that reads “Change Battery”. This doesn’t seem to impinge upon the overall functioning of the keyboard, though. Not really sure what that means.” Link

” Yamaha DX7s synthesizer, good cosmetically, but makes weird sound when play, one time I got clear piano sound, when play with buttons. Selling as-is for parts or repair. ” Link
“Yamaha DX7s Synthesizer in good cosmetic condition. This keyboard will power on, I have never had it connected to any other equipment to try to see if everything works. I have tried to connect some headphones to see if it would play but was unable to get any sound out of it. This keyboard may work perfectly but I have not been able to get any sound from it. This may be a combination of lack the proper equipment and inexperience in the operation of this keyboard, therefore we are selling this keyboard AS IS for Parts or Repair.” Link
” One of the most popular digital algorithm synths ever. It was released in 1983. This unit introduced a whole new type of synthesis called FM (frequency modulation). These units are far from analog and very difficult to program to the outsider but produces excellent sounds in the hands of a professional.. This particular unit in this listing powers on and all buttons function properly the output is just low and the sounds are really strange. I really think it needs an internal battery and programming but I do not have the knowledge to do this. This unit could probably be repaired or used for parts to an actual tech. Overall chassis is great and no sticking keys.” Link
I am not an expert on these instruments, but have done my best to describe the item as accurately as possible.
The internal battery needs to be changed, and as such the instrument has no ‘memory’ when switched off so patches cannot be stored. I have been using the patches on the ROM cartridge, which is included in the sale. It is fitted with a 2-pin Euro type mains plug, so will need an adapter, or change of plug.
The overall condition of the instrument is superb. There are 2 or 3 tiny marks on the front panel. The rear and base are almost perfect. There are no cracks in the plastic trim on the sides. There are some marks to the keys from normal playing. All keys work. All buttons and sliders work. The LED and LCD displays are both bright and clear. There are no visible scratches to the screen. It is extremely clean and has been stored in it’s case. There is not the usual build up of dust in the grooves on the front panel or around the buttons and sliders. ” Link

” This beastly DX7S synth is in great condition! I am running out of space in my apartment and have to get rid of it, but I’m sad to see it go. This is an awesome synth capable of producing great sounds. This is in perfect working order and great cosmetic shape.” Link
” Yamaha DX7s synthesizer, bought it on estate sale, good cosmetically, battery was changed, all keys/functions responding properly, when play – makes weird noises. Selling for parts or repair.” Link
It now displays “Voice:Change Battery” on the LCD when switched on (see picture) and other text is garbled (also see picture) I can’t get any sound out of it – though I imagine the battery maybe to blame. It did make sound when I purchased it.
It has a ROM cartridge, music stand and manual. It has a tatty flight case that I will ship it in – it’s will protect the instrument in transit, but that is all its good for.” Link
The keyboard has been refurbished with 40 new tactile switches and a new battery, has never been gigged, home use only. It is in generally good condition with the odd scratch and all keys play perfectly.
The QX21 is in good condition and very easy to use. Both original manuals are available and complete but with some coffee stains, dog ears and tears.
The DX7s was the last model produced in the DX range with many improvements over the original DX7. ” Link
“Everything on the synth works fine. The only issue I ran into was the main left and right outputs were a little noisy so I just ran a stereo cord out of the headphone jack.” Link
“Yamaha DX7s Synthesizer with data rom cartridge and manual.
I’ve listed this item as sold as seen because when you power up the replace battery message appears. You can get sounds out of some of the banks though and all the keys seem to be working ok.The synth is in pretty good condition,one of the faders is missing,but apart from this and a new battery it should be working ok.It’s sold for parts or not working though so sorry,no returns.” Link
