“This auction is for a used working Korg Mono/Poly analog keyboard synthesizer. This synth has been stored for about a decade, kept clean and dry in a hard case. Prior to being stored the synthesizer was used in a smoke free studio for about 15 years. I am the second owner of this Mono/Poly. This synth is US shipped only.
The synth is working, it powers on and produces sound. Going through the synth all knobs and switches are working, all 4 voices, waveforms, noise source and the VCF/EG/VCA signal chain are working, all ins and outs are working. The arpeggiator works, latches and holds, and will cycle through the 4 vcos, warping them in a deliciously twisted manner when using the X-Mod effects in poly mode. All push button switches are working and all leds work. The pitch bend and modulation wheels both work. Both LFOs (MG1/2) are working on all waveforms at all rates.
Cosmetically the synth is in good condition. The metal casework and front panel are clean and legible with no dents and only minor wear. The factory particle board wooden sides suffer from fragility and are worn at the corners, ugly but purely cosmetic. The synth has not been modified in any way.
While the synth powers up and it is working it also exhibits the typical symptoms of a vintage analog synth coming out of long-term storage. The keyboard seems to have suffered the most during storage as there are now many intermittent keys. In addition most pots and switches exhibit audio signal noise when used. The synth will need servicing to be brought back up to spec. I am not a tech and it will be up to the buyer to determine any needs.” Click here to search for synths on eBay
