“Selling my Yamaha SK20. This is a wonderful sounding analogue keyboard from the late 70s. It was serviced by my tech a couple of months ago and is in fabulous condition – all keys, lights, buttons and sliders are present and work exactly as they should. There are a couple of minor scuffs to the casing, but nothing you wouldn’t expect on an instrument of this age. I honestly don’t think you’ll find an example in better condition.” Link

“This is a MEGA monster analog synth that will only go up in value! LOW START and NO RESERVE!!
Its huge! loads of great fat warm analogue tone/ sound /clips on youtube (..reviews junkie xl etc..) of this lovely 70s synth in action –
It’s a real bargain for such a rare hard to find vintage synth and in very good condition – The sound is truly Unique very warm fat thick analog sounds..modern synths just do not come close to it –
They don’t make ’em like this anymore..It would just cost too much to make a keyboard like this now days.

I am Only selling as I just don’t have time to use it and need the space – It’s very big hefty and heavy approx 25kg
so pick up welcomed or buyer can arrange their own manwithavan/courier or I can send mainland UK for approx £60 –
I can pack it up very securely –
overall it’s in great cosmetic condition all sliders knobs working on this vintage & all powers up fine-
It is in working condition you can get some really awesome sounds out of this beast of a synth but, please note it is a vintage item – so would really benefit from a good once over service just to get it perfect as mentioned before
I Just haven’t been using it which is a real shame and
It needs to be used, loved and enjoyed – These synths just don’t come up on here eBay UK – It will only go up in Value!!
& Its the only one here !! a very rare item, a really beautiful 1970s electronic analog synthesiser keyboard!! ”

“Right this is a rare Yamaha CS01, a red one which I never see for sale. I think a later model which has blue highlights goes on occasionally but not this version? I pretty confident these things are pretty rare these days. Anyhow, I’ve had this since I was about 9 years old, I’m 43 now!! It’s been hanging around with me for years. I never use it these days, some switches are a little crackly when adjusting but it still works. All keys work great and all would be good until you wonder why it has a silver disc instead of the 2nd breath control knob. Well, I had a nasty habit as a young lad of taking all things electrical apart. I’d take them to bits to see what was in them and put them back together (Astro Wars lasted a month). Well, with this job young me did 99% of the job. I lost the knob and replaced it with another solid sturdy knob of some kind. God knows where from. This means that knob doesn’t work however unless you have the breath control it makes no difference (I never had it). It has lost its battery case and is scratched accordingly underneath. It’s also not been screwed back together perfectly so there’s some creaking going on. However, as I said it works perfectly (some crunching on certain knobs as mentioned). Now price wise I’m not too bothered if it sells and have lived with this chum for many years. I’m trying to raise some cash at the moment and so have plumed for a random start price. ”

TF1, TX-816, Yamaha @ 17 November 2017, “No Comments”

“Hey everyone . Im am 80s Electronic Music from YouTube. You may have heard my TX816 online . I have decided to sell her because I am moving and can no longer have such a large studio. She is almost mint with the the exception of a few scratches on top from laying my rack mixer on top. I also took the liberty to replace all of the module batteries and reload the factory sysex data. Also included are the xlr to 1/4 adapters. Six of them. This thing sounds insane with all 8 channels. Each module creates a different part of the preset and when they all come together , it’s sheer power. You’ll be in love with this synth. The dx7 is popular again along with FM so I predict this 816 will double in price within. Year or two. Get her now ” Link

DX-7, Yamaha @ 17 November 2017, “No Comments”

“Here’s your opportunity to own a piece of music history as well as the Yamaha DX7 that started it all.

Up for auction is an early production Yamaha DX7, Serial Number: 8155, Manufacture Date Code: CB83000, suggesting that this DX7 was manufactured in 1983. You can see this information in the picture of the left rear panel.

On the bottom of the instrument, there is an old looking foil adhesive sticker indicating that this DX7 might have once belonged to REO Speedwagon at the following address:

403 North Broadway, Urbana, IL 61801.

Neal Doughty, the only remaining founding member of REO Speedwagon, which was founded in the Fall of 1967, at the University of Illinois, was the main keyboardist & presumably played this instrument. ”

” Vintage Yamaha CS01 Synth in good working condition. Cosmetically,some scratches,scuffs,etc.It comes with Yamaha AC adapter.These were designed and are best to be used with breath controllers.The same model used by Chick Corea> I will have 2 of my breath controllers in another listing.” Link

DX-5, Yamaha @ 17 November 2017, “No Comments”

” Im not the original owner, and dont know much about this keyboard. I tried to play it, with much frustration, and could only get sound to come out of the A side. When I slid the balance to the B side, it was silent. I might have been doing something wrong.

Then, I decided to erase the memory, hoping to access the internal sounds stored on the machine. Now it makes no sounds at all.

In other words I have no idea what im doing or know if this thing works properly.

Due to the weight of it, I can only afford to sell it AS-IS, not working.

Only thing I can say for certain is that it is in excellent cosmetic condition. ” Link

“Up for auction is a Sequential Circuits Six-Trak vintage analog synthesizer. This model is notable for being one of the first multi-timbral synths, equipped with MIDI and an on-board six-track digital sequencer. The unit is functional with one exception; track 5 does not work. The other notes play. We are not experts on keyboards so there may be other issues we do not know of. That said, please know that you are going to have to have this repaired or use it for parts. There are NO returns. Physically it’s in good shape, with a repaired crack in the wood (see pics). Other than that it just has a few minor cosmetic marks here and there, typical of a 30 year old used piece of gear.” Link

“Vintage 1985 analog synth with full 6-voice polyphony. All original equipment including keyboard, power supply, manual, cassette tape with factory sounds, and carrying case! Everything works. In great condition – never gigged with this, only used at home. Just replaced the backup lithium battery. You can program everything about the 6 individual voices and layer them or split the keyboard. If you want classic analog synth sounds, then this is considered an innovative synth for its time.” Link

“Up for sale, a vintage Sequential Circuits Pro-One.

Over all in very good condition, see pictures! The only flaw is a minor crack in one of the modulation wheels, only cosmetic.

110V version but can supply a transformer for 230V countries if you need one.

Recently serviced:

Thoroughly cleaned.
Changed a broken trim pot to a new one.
Changed all old capacitors to new ones.
Replaced the LED.
Changed keyboard.

Comes in original box (a bit worn down) and with manual (also a bit beaten up).

Sold as is, no returns.”

“Up for auction is a non-working, Sequential Circuits Pro-One in good cosmetic condition and ready to be refurbished. Power supply went out in 1986 and didn’t repair it as I wanted a DX7 instead, geez. It’s been in dry storage since then. Missing the wooden end pieces because I didn’t like the look in ’82, lol, and missing the on\off switch as seen in photo. Also,replaced original screws. Power cord is dry/cracking. All knobs, switches and keys are intact. Wheels are also good. Sold as is and will be packaged securely. $60.00 flat rate shipping. ”

“Prophet 2002+ sampler (upgraded from baseline 2002 model). Cosmetically it’s seen better days. Function is perfect. The + version has 8 outs and twice the RAM. HxC floppy Emulator installed. I will include external USB floppy drive and a stack of floppies from original owner. I should also have original floppy drive but message me if that’s a deal breaker. ”

” Unit is in decent cosmetic shape. Three slider tips are broken as shown in pictures. Unit powers up but does not produce sound. Unit is being sold as-is.” Link

ARP, Odyssey @ 15 November 2017, “No Comments”

” This was a strange storage unit auction find in the midwest. I don’t know the story with the clear body, but I’ve never seen another one like it.

The roadcase it comes in is worn on the outside, but the foam inside is still good.

Here’s what’s been done to it:

~ All sliders were removed, cleaned, lubricated and reinstalled
~ All remaining controls were cleaned
~ The keyboard was completely disassembled, cleaned, rebushed, and all contacts were cleaned and adjusted
~ All tantalum power decoupling caps were replaced with electrolytic capacitors
~ The power supply board was re-capped and calibrated
~ The 4075 filter module was removed, recapped, and modified for increased cutoff frequency response
~ The original multicolored (now badly discolored) set of slider caps were replaced with a new, all white set. I’ll include the original slider caps for anyone interested.
~ Full calibration of all functions.” Link

ARP, Odyssey @ 15 November 2017, “No Comments”

“The Odyssey is a two-oscillator analog synthesizer, and one of the first with capabilities (the ability to play two notes at the same time). One potential appeal of the Odyssey is the fact that all parameters, including a resonant low-pass filter, a non-resonant high-pass filter, and AR envelopes, a triangle (not sine) and square wave LFO, and a sample-and-hold function are controllable with sliders and switches on the front panel. This is the 1st generation Mk I produced from 1972-75. It’s has a couple modifications, LFO syn, and Mono/Duo. These were professionally done for the studio it came out of. It has been celebrity used on major songs and soundtracks. It’s in great condition. The video attachment is a similar synth, but without the mods on this one. Super clean.” Link

“This is classic and great sounding VFX-SD, IMO, the best of 90s synth technology. Great waveforms… reminds me of the Waldorf MicroWave meets the PPG synths. GREAT sequencer as well, Heck the sequencer is worth the money alone.
Everything works as it should and it sounds amazing. The only thing i cant test is the floppy drive simply because i have no floppies.” Link

I have owned this synth for probably about 15 years, and have taken great care of it – it basically looks brand new except for one ding that I literally just noticed on the right hand end cheek. I have no more room and it just does not get enough use, so it must go. ” Link

“Doing some studio clean out. I’m not the original owner of this unit. Has some cosmetic flaws.
No wobbly knobs. There is some play on the cord and port. I’ve checked everything accept from
audio outputs 2 and 3, external audio inputs. The power adaptor plastic shell was broken during
shipping. The internals move around from it being damaged. I taped it back together to keep the shell on it.
OS 6.5 is installed. Comes with original power adaptor, and rack ears. No wooden end panels.” Link

“Serial Number: D33597
This drum machine is pretty old, but it’s been well cared for and it is a joy to play.

It works great!

Full disclosure:
It does occasionally miss key strokes on a few of the keys. You can see this in the video. I hit the clap key and I didn’t hear a hit.
Hitting them a second time always seems to work, so it’s probably just some dust under the key cap.
I imagine that the issue could be remedied with some contact cleaner.

Otherwise all the triggers work, it has very clean outputs (mono, stereo, and individual outs all work).” Link
