Casio FZ-10M

“Riot formed in 1975 by guitarist Mark Reale with the original line-up of Guy Speranza (vocals), Phil Feit (bass) and Peter Bitelli (drums). Riot recorded a four track demo together in an attempt to get included in a compilation of new rock bands. They were turned down but Riot was signed by producers Billy Arnell and Steve Loeb to their Fire-Sign Records label. There were some line-up changes with the introduction of second guitarist Lou Kouvaris with a change of bassist to Jimmy Iommi. Riot then released their debut album, Rock City, in 1977. Their music over the years has varied from hard rock to traditional heavy metal to US power metal.

Soon though Riot was losing whatever momentum they had gained and in 1979 were on the verge of a band breakup. Then the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWoBHM) hit. DJ Neal Kay began to spread the word about Riot in Britain and with British fans importing copies of Rock City. Arnell & Loeb agreed to record the second Riot album Narita which was released in 1979. The release introduced new guitarist Rick Ventura. Riot also signed a deal with Capitol Records to release Narita worldwide as the Capitol label was looking for a young act to support Sammy Hagar on tour. Capitol Records dropped Riot afterwards despite Riots tour success.

Thanks to the efforts of Arnell & Loeb Riot got tremendous airplay on as many radio stations as possible. Capitol Records then reconsidered and picked up their option for a second album from Riot which ended up being their third album Fire Down Under. Capitol Records yet again rejected the album for being too heavy metal. Despite the rejection of the new material Capitol Records refused to release Riot from their contract which resulted in the album not being released until 1981 when Elektra Records was able to reach an agreement with Capitol who then released the album.

Lou Kouvaris is a world renowned guitarist best known as the original Guitarist and co- songwriter for the band. Along with Guy Speranza and Mark Reale, Lou Kouvaris co-wrote several of Riot’s anthem style songs on both debut albums “Rock City” and the second album “Naritia” which took England; Europe and Japan by storm.

Lou Kouvaris has shared the stage and toured with Journey; Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers; Neil Young; Mark Farner; Neil Smith and Rick Derringer amongst others. Lou Kouvaris was inducted into the Heavy Metal Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame. Unfortunately RIOT’s founding guitarist and songwriter passed away in 2020 from Covid complications.

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

“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
