“This synth is in great conditions and functions perfectly, you can even run it on battery power and strap it on like a keytar. I have had a good time with this little guy and it has been kept in a smoke free, pet free studio. Happy phase distorting!”

“Selling a CASIO CZ-101 Synthesizer Keyboard. Keyboard has been tested and working. Looks to be in good condition, HOWEVER, this keyboard once belonged to a school and they engraved a few words around the keyboard, SO IT’S VERY IMPORTANT TO LOOK AT ALL IMAGES CAREFULLY TO SELL WHERE THE WORDS ARE. Also the foam for the battery cover is pretty much done and may need to be replaced, covered, or removed. What you see is what you’ll get.”

Casio, CZ-101 @ 31 October 2017, Comments Off on Casio CZ-101

“Casio CZ-101 Synthesizer (No original box)
Comes with a newer power cord (maybe 2 or 3 years old)
Comes with all manuals and guides (in near-new condition)
and a 4 bank EZ-CZ Ram Cartridge.

The main unit is in absolutely amazing condition.
I am the original owner and never used it that much. Its been in a climate controlled storage for all these years.
I don’t want to say that it looks like it is fresh and new from the box…just in case you find a tiny blemish or scratch, but I am honestly looking this thing over and it looks near perfect. It looks almost new.

Buttons are perfect.
Inputs and switches are perfect.
Wheel is perfect.
Keys are perfect.
LCD display is perfect
Even the tiny rubber pads on the bottom look perfect.

3 cosmetic points.

The battery compartment looks perfect but for some reason that I cannot recall, the battery hatch has residual tape on it which is odd because that cover piece fits into place no problem.
Second, the inside of the battery cover originally had a small spongy piece of material on it to hold batteries firmly in place. Due to age, this material has worn away. (See 9th photo). I would recommend sticking a small piece of the soft side of Velcro in its place. That should do nicely if you ever want to use batteries with it.
Third, the bottom surface has what I consider to be the most minor marks on it from wherever it was positioned on a keyboard rack back when I had it set up (late 80’s/early 90’s).” Link

“Everything works, 100% functional. Very good condition cosmetically – a little surface abrasion on front of the unit – see picture. Works with either batteries or AC adaptor (third-party adaptor included). Battery compartment is in decent shape as is cover foam. DC jack is a little loose so unit may power off momentarily if you jiggle the connection – a non-issue with normal use.” Link

” Picked this up and put batteries in it to test and it powers up and I tested the buttons and they all responded. I don’t have a AC power supply. There is signs of battery corrosion in the past, but is does run on batteries. There are some scratches and gouges on the unit, there is no strap. Thanks!” Link

“This keyboard has been used on 1000’s of hit records, a vital sound for anyone who works with keyboards. This ain’t no plug-in…that’s why you need the real thing. Yup, it’s the real thing. 1 owner, still love the sounds I can get out of if but I broke my back in August 2016 so I’ve got to say goodbye to some things.” Link

“Greetings, thank you for checking our auction. This Keyboard appeared in a donation to our non-profit Thrift Store. The Synth works fine (it has an Organ preset) but we do not know how to operate it well enough to test all the wave functions. We just went line out to a practice amp but did not test the MIDI. It comes with the original Adaptor, Instruction Book and Sound Data Book as well as the homemade plywood Case. This Case has a label describing the Synth as belonging to Ronnie ‘Baseball’ Newman. He was indeed the Organist at Home games for the Minnesota Twins starting in our old beloved Met Stadium (mid 70s). There is no provenance with this piece other than the label on the case. So this is cool little vintage Synthi (which gets great reviews by the way) and a unique piece of Baseball Americana specific to Minnesota. We hope you find it interesting and feel free to send any questions. The unit will be cushioned to stay snug and mailed in the Case. Enjoy the pictures and have fun bidding!” Link

“Kev here. This is the Casio CZ101. A real cool synth. Vibrato. Portamento! Really great condition. No scratches really. Never had an electric problem. Not only do the batteries work to power it but it comes with a wall plug if one so desires to use wall power. But it’s cool that the batteries to work. Adds to its portability.” Link

“For auction is one Casio CZ-101. This thing is in great condition. The battery compartment looks good and when disassembled the board was nice and clean. I did not see any blown capacitors, leaks, or broken traces but the unit powers up with some lights remaining on (as seen in one of the photos) and the screen is blank. Not sure if it is an easy fix or not but the repair seems to be beyond my expertise level (or at least exceeds my free time). Anyways, I am selling this to make room for more projects or synthesizers… and a baby (I hope that last bit encourages some bids!)

Personally I love this instrument. While the CZ-1 is awesome, I found it much faster to produce sounds with this little guy and the sounds are just as great. While very similar, I have found some of the sounds I have created with the CZ-101 to be unique and could not replicate them with the CZ-1. I found my patches to be superior. This can be said for other Casio synths, like the HT/HZ series, which makes it much harder to buy just one. The CZ-101 is great for a pinch, the straps are nice, and if space is limited it makes for a nice MIDI controller (or for a source instrument. Just plug it in and tuck it away and use your favorite controller.)

No power supply is supplied. The lights in the picture are by 6 D batteries (not included).” Link

“Up for sale is my LCD modified and overhauled/refurb’d Casio CZ-101

LCD was changed out for a new blue backlit display. This makes the synth much easier to see in either full light or in dark studios!
I cannot stress how important it is to have this type of display. The original display is such a pain to see and causes much frustration when trying to go in and program those cool and wild sounds this synth is capable of.

Also…
Synth was completely disassembled, all buttons and contacts carefully cleaned and restored to full functionality.
THE DC ADAPTER POWER JACK was changed from the hard to find Casio jack to the more common larger jack so it will be easier to locate a replacement AC Adapter if one is needed.

All buttons work. All the keys work. All features including MIDI works.
Synth has been cleaned up and ready for hours of enjoyment!

Please note the case is not in perfect condition.
There are a few scratches on the face and the back has many scratches.
After 34 years, you’ll have a few scratches and dings on you too!

Additionally the “Keytar” pegs have been removed (who uses those things??) and the right side mounting hole has a partial breakage in the hole.. just cosmetic and you’d never see it if you are simply playing it 😉
Trust me, you don’t want those pegs! Try storing the little synth on its end and you quickly realize they are a PITA and can cause damage to the synth either at the mount holes(like it already did..) or letting it tip over and whack into the floor!” Link

ca101 “Hello. Up for auction is a sweet little mini synth – the Casio CZ101. Works great – i’ve owned it for a few years and never had any issues. All keys work. Has some minor cosmetic flaws as would be expected for a synth of its age. The power plug is a little jacked – see pics – but works. Power adapter not included. Runs good on batteries; battery cover is included, batteries not included. Still has the side attachments – strap it on and rock out! Memory cartridge included as a bonus. Like all vintage gear – sold as is – but guaranteed not to be DOA. I tested everything and even videoed it in action before listing.” Link

cz101 “Thanks for viewing this auction. Here is a great find. It is a vintage synthesizer keyboard, model is CZ-101, manufactured by Casio. Take a look at the pictures and judge this one for yourself. Keyboard comes to you in used but good condition for the age. Keyboard powers up, lights illuminate when buttons depressed and LCD display shows well. I am no expert with this particular keyboard so I am guessing that it has no internal speaker system. I plugged this one into my guitar amp and I was impressed. Keyboard sounds out nicely and I was able to play music with it. I was also able to rotate the knob/dial on the left and make siren like or distort the sounds. I do not know how to fully operate or program this one so I cannot guarantee that everything functions as it should but from what I was able to do and for the condition, I would be making a guess that it does. On that note, so to speak, I am offering it as is. All keys are present and depress/release nicely. Battery compartment located on the backside. Compartment door is present and intact. it opens/locks closed as it should to secure batteries. Unit powers with 6 D cell batteries and I will include a fresh set if you are the winning bidder. Feel free to email me with any questions. I will be happy to answer. Whether you collect this type/brand of item or just looking for a great synthesizing keyboard, look no further. This is the one you want.”

cz101 “A blast from the 80’s! One of the earliest digital synthesizers made, with mini keys, guitar strap pegs, battery power. But it is professional quality for this time period, and a great way to learn about programming and digital synthesis.

I bought this new and played it quite a bit during the mid 1980s. It’s been in a closet ever since, but I’ve pulled it out, put in 6 fresh D batteries, and started having fun again. It appears that everything still works – it’s an oldie so it has a few scratches on it but overall it looks pretty good. It does not have the power adapter but does run on batteries if you’d like or you can buy a cheap one anywhere. The only issue I’ve discovered is the volume slider is a little scratchy/ fuzzy when sliding up or down, but probably just needs to be cleaned well.” Link

cz101 “Casio CZ-101 Synthesizer

Manuals and Power Supply – all original

Excellent Condition (see photos)

Purchase years ago early 80’S for my children after reading electrical engineering article on Digital sound synthesis.
Hardly used – kids not interested it just sat in a drawer for over 20 years. Note the keyboard case is near pristine – wear on lettering about nonexistent.

Manuals like new – doubt keyboard ever programed – no batteries used ever.

To check functions – all presets work – note took photos with different settings to show lights working. Wheel changes pitch – programing changes show on LCD screen. Sounds are great (the bass sounds like the “Seinfield show music” ) organ is nice and are all the others. All keys work and you can transpose – as a non-musician it seems to work perfectly to me.

Case has very little scratches and no cracks – will ship with robust packing.
The keyboard is small – only saw one used — by the keyboard player with a jazz group Weather Report. Nice and portable.” Link
