Casio FZ-1

“Here is a vintage CASIO FZ1 Sampler.
It is a 16 bit sampler, with 9kHz-36kHz sample rate and 1 MB RAM, giving a unique grungey sound to sampled sounds. It has a very versatile and powerful synthesis engine (e.g. sampled/hand-drawn/pre-set waveforms, sine synthesis) using Analogue filters which sound amazing.

Have tested it and it is working great.
The display backlight is working (although the viewing angle for the original LCD display isn’t that great).
All buttons and sliders work as they should.
Keyboard works great (has aftertouch as well as velocity).
Line output and input sounding good.
The only thing presumed not working is the floppy drive – this was ok a few months ago when I last tried it but it now gives a disk error so looks like it has finally expired after 30+ years. Most people replace the floppy drive with a Gotek USB Floppy Emulator, so that is left as an improvement for the new owner to make.

Condition-wise everything looks good although there are some marks and scratches to the case. I carefully unscrewed the main case for an internal inspection and the inside all looks intact, original and surprisingly clean (see photo). There is a small amount of corrosion on the back of the metal case around the vents. Two of the plastic screw mounts which hold the right side of case to the body together are broken – so this part of the case is slightly loose (not noticeable though in use, it has been like that all the time I’ve owned it).

Comes with the original manual – there is a small slit in the cover and the spine has perished but all pages are present and intact. Also includes mains power lead and a few sample library disks. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Casio CZ-101

“A Casio CZ-101 synthesizer in very good used condition. One owner. All functions work properly. There are no modifications. I have no testing equipment so that would be up to the buyer if they want to open it up and tinker with it. This is an as-is sale.

A little history:

I bought it brand new in San Rafael, California in the late 1980s. Hooked it up to a Commodore 64 with a program that would generate these wonderfully bizarre random patches.
Later I hooked a Casio DH-100 digital horn up to the CZ-101 and played the random patches with wind controller ability.

Then in recent years I hooked up a midi to computer cable and used it as a controller a little while. I was using a power adapter without batteries and noticed that the internal patches were all empty (no sounds). But after installing new D cells and pushing the reset button they all came back.

I no longer have any cartridges or midi cables so I can’t test those functions, however they used to work fine with the ones I used to have so I would think it’s still okay.
Everything else appears to be working as it should. All keys play. ”

Casio CZ-5000

“It’s recently been serviced – this included cleaning the key bed, replacing a few caps in the PSU, fitting a new digital LED (much, much easier to read) and fitting some new keys. It works just as it should but these synths are 40 years old and the entire CZ range are quirky when it comes to their use. Sometimes if your working quickly you may find you have to press a button again before it registers. This isn’t due to a fault, its down to the design of the synthesiser using 4.3mm tactile switches fitted under a flexing plastic switchboard (like the monopoly, polysix and JX-10p).The replaced keys are a slightly different shade than the original and the chorus slider is missing but beyond that, its working fine. No crackles, no lost sound and all of the keys work. These are a classic synth used to create the reese sound on Just another Chance by Kevin Saunderson (Reese).This is a large Synth and I can post but it will need to be via a courier and at your cost. I would prefer collection” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Casio FZ-1

“Casio FZ-1 1980s Sampler Synthesizer. Condition is “Used”.

I bought this synth for my son some years ago. He never really got into the synth bug, and it’s been stored in the almost ever since.

We’ve decided to sell it as it’s not likely to get used (I have one of these and a rack mount version in my studio in any case).

The condition is overall good – see the photos. I bought it from an older gent who just used to use it as a piano. I don’t believe it’s ever been gigged.

It works fine. The only issues I’m aware of are typical for these and are as follows;

– the EL backlight has failed which means the screen is darker to read than it should be. This is typical for a synth of this age as EL panels wear out. If you’re so minded you can buy replacements, but it means opening it up. It’s still usable without the backlight.
– some of the buttons need more than one push to respond. I suspect this is down to lack of use. This doesn’t affect the actual keys which seem fine.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“I purchased this keyboard at Manny’s Music in New York City to teach myself to play piano. A year later I moved and the keyboard has been in the box ever since, time to pass it along.

I did not have an AC Adapter and used batteries. The battery compartment has corrosion, but I’m sure it can be cleaned. Since it hasn’t been used in over 35 years, I can’t promise it will work now, but it did!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Casio SK-5

“Up for sale is one of several Casio keyboards to be listed. Here we have an SK-5, in working order, missing the battery cover, and it’s a good bit dusty in spots in the interest of full disclosure. The sampling is a ton of fun and allows you to sample and transpose up to 4 to samples. All sample effects work. All keys work, though I couldn’t figure out how the “accompaniment” or “obligato” slider worked. Though having a few of these I can’t say I’ve ever known how that slider worked (or if it did!) starting auction at $0.99 no international shipping, no returns on this one as we are liquidating our entire gadget factory. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Casio CZ-101

“Vintage 1980s Working Casio CZ-101 Synthesizer Keyboard.

The keyboard works well with some exceptions. The display still looks excellent and the protective plastic was never removed. After testing it, this is what didn’t work.

The number 6 and number 7 buttons as well as the select and internal button do not seem to work. Also the key follow buttons on both DCA 2 and DCA 1 do not seem to work. The ENV buttons on both DCW 1 and DCW 2 do not work as well.

I was not able to see any response from the master tune buttons but I could be doing something wrong.

All keys as well as the pitch bend and volume work great. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This has never been used. It was produced in 1990. Over the years, my uncle bought a lot of electronics. I am including a Casio ROM card, which is very rare to find. This does not come with the cables or the manual. These can be purchased or downloaded online. My uncle was known for taking cables out of boxes and using them on other equipment. This is in pristine condition and was stored indoors for the last 30 years in it’s original box. This will be shipped in another box to protect the original box.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Casio CZ-1

“CASIO CZ-1 Synthesizer Digital Synth Keyboard. Condition is “Used”. Fully functional, but some of the pots & inputs could use a little cleaning and two of the slider knobs are missing (the sliders are still there though and function-see pics). I bought this baby from the original owner for a specific project over a decade ago and have hauled it from one apartment to another even though I don’t really play keyboard, It just sounds so nice and is really fun to noodle on. It deserves to be in the hands of someone who can unlock it’s true potential. Includes a photocopy of the manual and power cord. No cover or stand included. Has been stored in more or less climate-controlled, smoke free home studio. The CZ-1 is noted for exceptional, embracing phase distortion. Isn’t that almost exactly what you need more of in your life?”
