“This perfectly working Akai AX-80 is a fantastic 8 voice synth. Lots of beautiful bass sounds. I’m the second owner and bought it from an older gentleman that had it stored under his bed for a long time. Bjork’s 1997 album Homogenic was the reason I picked this up 5 years ago from that man. Just listen to that album. The bass and synth lines are from the Akai AX-80!!! ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This is a great working, great sounding, programmable, 8 voice synth. Lots of info online about it. There are different Firmware EPROMS for sale on Ebay. Other spare parts are for sale should you need it. Please look at photos. There are two knobs missing and some chipping on the end wood parts. Buyer will pay actual shipping and packing charges. The Rolling Gator Case is in good shape except the top handle is broken. There is an adjacent handle that makes rolling manageable.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Up for auction is a vintage Akai AX80 Programmable Polyphonic Synthesizer keyboard. This one was made in Japan, in the 80’s, serial number 0062036543. This one turns on and almost all the functions work with three exceptions:
The “F” key above middle “C” does not work
The Modulation control does not function
The power cord’s shielding is frayed where it goes into the keyboard (keyboard still turns on, but it is a shock hazard) and should be replaced

The body has some dings and dents. It will ship in its original gig bag, which is in fair condition. It will also ship with a printed copy of the original manual. We are selling this keyboard for parts or repair. ”

“I am offering a Preowned Vintage Akai AX80 1980’s Analog Synthesizer. Please understand that it is being SOLD AS IS WITH NO GUARANTEES AND NO REFUNDS. Also understand that this is a very large item and shipping costs will reflect this. I have no control over shipping costs. Here is what I know. The unit powers up without issue and produces undistorted sound. I was able to produce different sounds by adjusting controls. Pitch bend works as it should. I was never able to affect sound with the modulator wheel or the master control knob. One key is broken, but still produces sound. Another key, “A”, is depressed and doesn’t spring back. It does not produce sound. The following, “D” note does not produce sound. Some of the keys had been written on with a marker. I removed most of it with some remaining. I believe it will all come off with additional effort. The tone knob is missing. The exterior in general shows scuffs and scrapes/scratches. AGAIN, THE PIECE IS BEING SOLD AS IS FOR PARTS OR REPAIR.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This Akai AX80 synthesizer is in good condition. There is moderate wear on one of the front corners, and one of the keys on the keyboard was broken, then glued back into place (works fine). Otherwise normal wear for a 35 year old keyboard.

The akai works great, and all the led light are working and intact! I’ve noticed that if I haven’t turned it on in a while, it tends to have a “warm up” period, where it fades in an out (volume) until it has been on for a bit.”

Akai, AX-80 @ 21 November 2017, Comments Off on Akai AX80

“It’s both cosmetically and functionally excellent. There are no dents or dings in the metal chassis. The paint, print, and logos are still intact and glossy. The end cheeks also have a nice glossy finish. The membrane buttons all work. There are no tears or rips in the membrane. All other knobs and controls work as intended. None of the keys are chipped/broken/repaired and they all trigger notes correctly. Yes, there are scuffs and marks on the end cheeks, some light wear marks here and there, and a few very light scratches on the plastic display panel. The latter can likely be completely buffed out using plastic polish, if you desire. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Up for sale is an Akai AX-80 synth. It’s a beautiful, thick sounding synth that may be just what you’re looking for!

These synths are known for the poorly designed circuit board connectors that are practically guaranteed to break after years of use. This synth was professionally modified by Control System Labs Inc in Buffalo, NY with ribbon connections and all edit functions and membranes are working (see images / video demo).

The synth has some dents (see pictures) due to its age and one key is cracked but plays fine. The volume is a little fuzzy when adjusting, but once you’re set its just fine.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Akai AX-80 in really excellent condition, and working perfectly. All buttons are very responsive, screen is working flawlessly. This is the glossy wooden side version, which is apparently the older one. You can see from the pictures what kind of shape this is in – only minor nicks around the sides and a few scuffs. The data knob and other parts look brand new! I’m pretty sure I was the second owner and the last owner clearly had it in storage for years. Still has the inspection sticker on it! Definitely one of the coolest looking synthesizers with the fluorescent bar graphs!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Selling Vintage AKAI AX80. True Analog poly synthesizer with 8 voice. Released in 1984. Synth comes with built in power cord to unit. Fully functional but including a disclaimer. It is a known thing with this synth that solder pins on board for the membrane buttons do get broke during transportation. I have had this happen to me before upon moving. This is an easy fix and I have performed this before once with no problem. Just one of those quirks on this vintage piece.”

akaiax80 “If you’re looking at this auction, you probably have some idea of how awesome the AX-80 sounds. If not, check out youtube for demos. This is an analog 8 voice polyphonic synth from 1984. It has midi but being an older synth doesn’t have the midi capability of newer synths. This synth is in 100% working condition. All keys, leds, membranes, midi, and inputs/outputs work as they should. The keyboard has cosmetic blemishes that came with the synth when I purchased it in 2010. One key has a minor chip, the side panels have damage, and there are screws missing on the back panel.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

ax80Nice condition, the side cheeks are in good condition the rest of the synth is in nice condition.

All the screens are bright and functional, the button pads and keyboard work fine and all the oscillators are working and in tune.

This is a fantastic synth with a great sound and musical filter.
Programming sounds is super easy through the 5 VFD displays, a bit of a hidden gem among synthesisers in my opinion.

Fully working.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

ax80 “The AX80 is the first pro-keyboard produced by Akai, released in 1984. It’s an eight-voice programmable analog synthesizer with a full 61-note keyboard. Two analog oscillators per voice plus a sub oscillator provide the basis of its punchy analog sounds that can be described as similar to a Roland Juno 106. Very good bass, brass, synth sounds, and effects are possible. The keyboard is in great condition for being 30 years old. The only issue I have found is the 5 LCD screens that show a visual example of the parameters do not work. This does not affect any sort of navigation or functionality of the keyboard. It is a perfectly working keyboard that sounds incredible.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

80 “Up for auction today we have a Akai AX80 Keyboard Synthesizer. This synthesizer belongs to a dear friend of mine that has fallen on had times. He hasn’t played it in a few years. I got it out of storage for him and am tring to sell it. I pluged it in and it came on and seemd to work. I pluged it into a guitar amp and tried all of the keys and scrolled through the edit control up and down. Everything appeared to work as i think it should have. I’m not a keyboard player. The screens all seemed to be working. Of course it isn’t perfect, has some corner damage on each side. It was also apparent to me that the knobs aren’t original as they don’t even really fit. But they did function. Tried the pitch bend and modulation and they were working as well. To the untrained eye it appears to just need a little TLC. I have done my best to show and describe the keyboard, if you have any questions just shoot me a e-mail and I’ll try my best. Thanks for looking!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Data wheel has been rebuilt and works perfectly. Mod Wheel and Pitch assembly brand new rebuild. Comes with original case but it has a tear in one end, can be stitched.
All working otherwise, storage and memory work perfect. All MIDI flawless. PLEASE BE AWARE!!!! It is vintage, NOT meaning cool and trendy BUT old and delicate! There is the possibility of it developing issues on its own during shipping – you’ve been advised! Local pick up is preferred but shipping will be done in the most careful and secure of ways possible. There will be NO RETURNS. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Full disclosure: 3 of the 5 screens of the synth work intermittently if at all (shown in the last picture), and editing buttons 20-32 do not work. It has black Duct tape covering the name of the synth in 4 places as to hide its identity in live performance (secret weapon), aside from 3 live performances its been working and tracking in my studio for years. Well worth the investment to bring it up to snuff I’m sure as it has a very unique sound.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
