“If you’re looking at this, I don’t need to intimate how great this synth is – the modulation capabilities are unique (particularly with the LFO trick, which this unit performs easily – I will show you how, if you pick her up).

I apologise that the photos look like it’s been taken in a 1970s opium den – I should have taken it to the kitchen for extra clinical, halogen-lit photos. [NEW PHOTOS ADDED!]

This works flawlessly. She retains the Japanese 110V supply, but I will provide a high quality transformer for UK voltage.

My house move forces this sale.

I have swapped knobs with the Korg mixer from the same series. It illustrates the architecture of the synth very well… If you want the original knobs back, I’ll swap it back to standard (but I’m not the first to perform this swap)” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“A very flexible and fun synth. Other cool tricks up its sleeve include chord memory and an effects mode in which oscillators have a variety of ways to be synced. The built-in arpeggiator and sequencer can run all 4 VCO’s at a time or cycle through each voice per note!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Purchased it 2 years ago on eBay, it’s amazing synth with lot of character and unique sounds but I’ve moved completely ITB six months ago and selling all the gear that I haven’t been using since.

Please see pictures and video about synth prior to bidding, synth has several issues from previous owners:
1. Four keys have cigarette burns
2. Pitchbend doesn’t return to center. I don’t know has it ever been returning or not.
2. MG1 action is swapped. I guess t’s because original owner has connected MG1 to midi-board with wrong polarity. I was using it as it is but it’s sounds like easy to fix.
3. Some pots are scratchy (volume, cut off, resonance) – it’s 30 years old synth.”

The wood panels show many marks and one side is slightly separated, two keys are broken, one knob is broken off and missing, another is bent but knob is intact. All lettering and metal parts look good but could use a cleaning. Functionally the unit seems to work okay, as shown in video link below, except for one key is not responding.

“Unkle I meant to say my monopoly which my uncle owned from new about 30 years if I can recall he was very much into electronics and saw one at a music store in London and painstakingly saved up for it monthly as it was a lot of money due to at the time this 4 oscillator pure analogue signal no digital guidance to alter the sound so it’s pure and moves giving that analogue tone not how they are mimic now as the Ines claiming to be analogue now are not or there are very limited as they use digital components to home in on the oscillators path so they do not drift or give the movement that pure analogue synths were made 30 years back so I’ve been told by a professor that the tones of true analogue paths have to be true analogue no digital control to make the signal rock stable which is not the point when you buy an analogue if that time any way it has been kept in perfect condition and the Korg alluminium case with the big logo on it which has housed it for many years and it works as it should and is a dream to look at anyone who comes to buy this will not believe it is 30 years old it looks like it’s just been made and the plugin that Korg released does not come close to the sound as I made a match and it very different check the YouTube of mark doty putting it through the pase and you’ll be shocked how it’s not more known only selling to give the money to his grandson as my unlike passed away 3 years ago” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“I am reluctantly selling my Korg MonoPoly analogue synth because “you never play it anymore” and “it’s taking up space”. This is true, however I will miss it when it is gone and perhaps it will get more use with a different owner. It has plenty of life left in it!

It is in very good condition, however it is over 30 years old so some of the pots crackle when you turn them. The keyboard has had it’s contacts cleaned so the keys are very responsive.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Up for auction is my Korg Monopoly. I’m having a clear out and as all my music stuff has been sitting idle for a few years, it has to go. I’m starting the auction at a reasonable price but be aware these are rare and the price will climb I would recommend you put in a good bid if you want it.

Visually the synth is in good condition considering it is 35 years old (See Photos)

Everything behaves just as it should apart from the odd key doesn’t always trigger and some pots are a little scratchy when turned. These problems are due to this synth not being touched for years, I have already found some problematic keys are now working perfectly again after playing it for about an hour. If you want to service it you can easily fix these issues, but I would just see if they sort themselves out because it’s well known that they generally disappear after a little playing.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This vintage Analog synth is a hands down classic. It’s design and layout is quite unique amongst vintage synthesizers. My unit has been well taken care of and preserved, kept in a smoke free studio, never gigged or left my studio, & recently serviced with two pots rebuilt by hand (checked thoroughly by Advanced Musical Electronics in Los Angeles, a 400.00 servicing). Functionally it’s excellent, everything works, and the body is in amazing condition for its age. The rear corners of the wood sides are worn, the only visible sign of long age. There are a couple marks under the white keys, shown in photos, all minor wear. The metal chassis is perfect. Lastly, the plastic Effects button cover is loose and came off. Nothing is broken underneath button cover. All in all this synthesizer is in excellent shape, especially considering its 35 year age.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“KORG MONO/POLY Analog Synthesizer that works great! This synth has been a friend for years and has amazing sounds that are super easy to tweak to your taste. All knobs, switches, and control wheels are fully functional and don’t stick. The wood panels are slightly dinged and have a few chips and dents from it actually being played. This has been used in a non smoking home studio for the 20 years that I have had it. The last pictures are of a function check where the sound is clear and EVERY KEY PLAYS. This is a fully analog synth and as such, it does need to warm up for a few minutes to keep in tune, but once you learn to use a real vintage synth there is nothing that comes close. The full board will be carefully packaged so you get it in one piece and functional.”

“NOW, I could kick whatever clown decided to paint the outer three panels white.
I mean, maybe they had a virus ti polar and a jd-xi and needed their other synths to match the all-white scheme? Who knows.
Maybe you love it. At least they didn’t paint over the front panel.

And the knobs, and the sounds are all great. Everything works 100%. Please bid accordingly.

Tested & working great. Comes with manual and case.”

mp ” Vintage Korg Mono/Poly Synthesizer with light FLIGHT CASE in excellent condition. Recently serviced to original specs by Switched On in Austin, TX (see pictures of work order/documentation). OWNERS MANUAL and SERVICE MANUAL included. I am the original owner of this synthesizer and have owned it for 33 years. In all those years, I have done my best to take great care of the instrument. I’ve made the decision that it’s time to move on to new instruments and must let it go.

The instrument is in better shape than any typical instrument of its age – it is very clean! The guys at Switched On in Austin, TX were impressed by it’s cosmetic condition! It looks and plays great! There’s minor dings on the corners of the woodgrain sides near the bottom. It originally had rubber feet on the bottom of the unit that I removed at some point so that it would sit flat on a keyboard stand – those are missing. There’s one key that’s been broken and re-glued (see picture). This is a only a cosmetic problem. All keys play perfectly since being serviced!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

mono-poly “Korg MonoPoly Project Synth

Important: Please note that this synthesizer needs work.

This wonderfully expressive, vintage synth does need work to make it fully functional.

I believe it will need the replacement key contacts either cleaned or replaced. The rubber strips that make contact with the keys are not functioning. These can easily be purchased from various sources online.

There may be other issues but I’m a musician not a tech guy. I have removed the keyboard and manually triggered the key contacts and found that the instrument does make notes and I believe everything sounds the way I believe it should.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

There are a few minor marks on the side panels (one side in particular shown in pics) but are barely noticeable, with a synth of this age is to be expected. All keys/pots are working but it does take a good while to warm up. Some of the pots crackle, this is standard and could be solved by having it professional cleaned inside.

Works great and sounds amazing, all buttons keys and knobs work, the only issue is the headphone jack is not working at the moment. It’s all analog so it takes a few minutes for all four oscillators to warm up and then you can expect stable tuning from there on out. With 4 oscillators it’s a monster!

used mono-poly “Korg Monopoly MP-4 Analog Synthesizer. This a 4-voice analog synthesizer that sounds great and has many sound possibilities.
I am sad to see it go after 20 years of owning it. While in my possession it has seen very light use and has mostly been seating idle in my studio for the last 10 years. I recently turned it on to test it before I post for sale and found that 5 keys are not working properly.

2 of the keys are the last 2 keys on left, although the black key sometimes works, so it is a hit and miss. The other 3 keys are in the right most section part of the last 6 keys. So the good news is that if you decide not to fix the keys, the middle parts of keyboard work fine, which is where you will probably be playing most your notes. In addition, all notes play fine via CV/Gate.

I have tested all 4 voices and they all work fine. I have tested all knobs and they seem to work fine. I have not noticed any noise from any of the knobs while turning. However, given the age of this thing I do not guarantee that there will be no other problems besides the 5 keys and I am selling it AS IS.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
