Two keys on the keyboard are sticky and one key has no contact.

“Korg DSS-1 Vintage Sampler Synthesizer w/ A Lot Of 84 Sound Sample Disks library. Condition is for parts and not working. This is one of my favorite synthesizer/sampler workstations. It used to work fine and was in great shape until FedEx abused and destroyed it in mishandling. The keys are all smashed down and loose now. It’s officially a doorstop, maybe you can have it repaired and restored to life again. Keyboard and disks only, does not include any user manuals or documents.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Korg DW-8000 Vintage Synthesizer. Condition is “For parts or not working”.

For sale is the classic Korg DW-8000.

These are very lovely digital synthesizers with gorgeous sounding analog filters.

This unit powers on and the display works, but does not opperate. Some buttons seem to respond. I am not familiar with this synth and I only know it is missing it’s internal CR battery.

Cosmetically, it is in fantastic condition, especially for it’s age, with light wear on bottom.

I am not knowledgeable on these issues and am selling “as-is” until I can get a technician to service this. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“I had my tech replace the disk drive and checked the unit over. Please review the pics with the color tabs on them as those keys action are a little off and could use additional keys to make it ideal for playing although you can play the keys fine as they are. The middle black sharp Ab/G# is bent a little but playable which It probably could be adjusted and repaired. The keyboard comes with with 6 DSS1 floppy disks. This is a great pickup for a DSS-1 keyboard with great analog filters.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Korg DSS-1 Powers On/ AC Cord Included. This is a fairly complex keyboard the DSS-1 and I have no idea how it operates. It does power on and the screen can go through different settings. There is a floppy disk that comes with it although I could not seem to get it to load following instruction on the internet. With the correct disk and the experienced user this DSS-1 may work properly. This Korg DSS-1 is sold AS-IS and I must sell it as a “Parts Only” item as I do not know how to operate it.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

dss=1 “Up for sale is a Korg DSS-1 Sampling Synthesizer Keyboard w/ Road Case – Bad Floppy Drive

I bought this at an estate sale a couple years ago

I was meaning to play it a bit, but it turned out to be much more complicated to use than I thought

From what I can see, there doesn’t appear to be any built in sounds, and from plinging away at it, I could just get some faint staticy sounds when pressing the keys

I tried formatting a floppy disk, but while the disk spins, the drive head doesn’t seem to be moving, and it eventually just times out.

Since I have no idea how to use it, other than the bad floppy drive, I don’t know what, if anything, else is wrong with it

Does come with a nice Road/Flight case and I will be putting the keyboard into the flight case into the original cardboard box to ship everything.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
