# Yamaha DX5

DX-5, Yamaha @ 10 June 2011

“This particular unit was clearly used heavily by its previous owner. Cosmetically, the chassis is fairly dinged up, especially the wooden endcheeks, and the B3 key has a small notch in it (which I’ve done my best to represent fairly in the photographs). Functionally, aftertouch is rather unresponsive; however the unit exhibits no other impediments to its usability. I have had a professional technician thoroughly clean all four sliders and the keyboard assembly, and replace a few potentially problematic capacitors. Incidentally the pitch and mod wheels feel smooth and considerably more responsive than most synthesizers of this vintage that I’ve played (including some of Yamaha’s related models).
I’m a little ambivalent about selling this as I am quite fond of it, but I simply haven’t been playing it very often lately, and frankly I could use the money.

Also included in this auction are a soft case, two RAM cards, and a Yamaha sustain pedal.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
