kx5 “This is a classic mid-80′s Yamaha KX-5, midi controller/shoulder keyboard/keytar. It is in very good used condition and fully operational. Connects to synths via MIDI and uses a 9 volt for power. I lost the battery compartment lid and found a silver one to replace it and the button for the Portamento setting is missing. It’s just a knob and I hope to find it by the time I ship to a new owner. Keep in mind that this is a MIDI controller and it doesn’t make sound on its own.” Link

kx5 “I picked this up years ago thinking I would rehab it and get it into playing shape. (my desire to emulate Chick Corea)

The battery compartment probably needs to be rewired, and I just never got around to it. I cannot confirm if the unit operates otherwise.

I used to love playing these things, but just don’t have the time to deal with it now and want to pass it on to someone who will get it back to working condition or someone who needs pieces/parts to make another one work.

The cap from the battery compartment is missing. All buttons and keys depress as you would expect.” Link

kx5 “Yamaha KX5 Remote MIDI Keyboard Controller 37-note Keytar

Includes guitar strap.
Missing the battery compartment cover.
I have been told that it is still available from Yamaha and the part number is CB831210
The battery holder has been repaired but I never tested with AA batteries.
Works fine with a 9v battery.
The battery clip wire has also been repaired.
A friend tested it for me and said everything works as it should.
Two keys, the lower G# and A# seem loose and move side to side but they do play.
Due to its age this is being sold AS IS.” Link

Has been in smoke free dust free temperature controlled storage for 8+ years since original owner was taken from us in an auto accident. I have to find this a good home as this thing deserves to me making music again! Itr’s extremely retro cool and complete you will love it!

“Hello, you are looking at a Yamaha KX5 37 note keytar. The Yamaha is in good condition functionally. The controller has various minor scratches but looks relatively clean. There is tape residue near the battery compartment as the battery cover is loose and it needs tape other than that it works perfectly, all buttons and functions work. Includes strap.” Link

“Up for auction is the Yamaha KX5. It is tested to be totally functional. It is missing the battery cover and battery holder, but can be connected and powered by a 9V battery. It has the same polarity and attachment. The keytar is the silver version, but was painted black by the previous owner. I had stripped the paint from the keyboard, but the process had left it dull. This is a midi controller and has no internal sounds. It needs to be plugged in to a tone generator or a keyboard with sound and midi in order for it to work.” eBay Link

“Up for sale is a Yamaha KX-5.The KX5 is a 37-note remote MIDI controller with velocity and aftertouch sensitivity. A ribbon controller is used for pitch and mod effects. There’s also unison, sustain, portamento buttons and a breath controller input. Up to 64 patches can be accessed via 8 buttons, 4 bank buttons and the sustain button. With 2 switchable MIDI channels you can control 2 synths on the fly. None of the buttons or the ribbon control are user-assignable. This is in Great Condition. I Just don’t use it. You will need 6 AA batteries to power this thing.” Link

“This YAMAHA KX-5 REMOTE KEYBOARD MIDI CONTROLLER is in Very Good shape (has a few minor scratches) but would be considered in Very Good Condition (see pics)

All keys work, all buttons and functions work – all check out AOK ! ! !

On / Off switch works only when MIDI cable is plugged in – which saves battery power if accidentally turned on with no MIDI cable implemented – Great Factory feature

Battery Holder uses (6) AA Batteries = 9Volts

Comes with Owner’s Manual

“This is a KX5 in excellent working condition. Cosmetically, just a few surface scratches as expected for a controller/synth this age. It’s as collectible as it is playable. Circa 1984. What makes this so unique is the breath controller input. Not many midi remote controllers have this feature!! Yamaha Serial #06943. Comes with a new battery holder, and is complete and fully working.” Link
