“For auction is a storage sale find of a KORG POLY-61M Synthesizer. Item powered up fine and I was able to get sound from all keys. I was also able to make various cool sounds at different settings. That’s pretty much all I can say as I’m no expert in synthesizers, much less a musician. Please take the time to review all the pics and watch the video so you can get a better feel as to what’s being offered here.” Link

“I have been the sole owner of this synth and have kept it in excellent condition. I have tested every slider, knob, pot, and key, and everything is fully functional! When I opened the case to inspect the components, I was pleased to see that it was nearly spotless. (See pics) The battery is old but in great shape and when I put it on the meter, it maintained a steady 3.3 volts. (Brand new it is rated at 3.6 volts.) All patches are intact and fully functional. The carbon contacts that sit under each key had oxidized with age, as would be expected, so they have been restored and all 61 keys work perfectly. I also connected the MIDI input to my Korg M1 and was able to trigger the Poly-61 as intended.

This sale includes the original manual, two MIDI cables, and one audio patch cable.” Link

“Available for purchase: a vintage Korg Poly61 Synthesizer for repair. This keyboard does not work in it’s current state and needs some pretty extensive work. The SSMs are still intact and a spare CPU board/parts are included. Please note that this will not power on as-is. I had every intent on repairing as there’s definitely a working unit somewhere in this mess. I unfortunately no longer have the time” Link

“Ich verkaufe hier meinen Synthesizer, meine Frau zwingt mich, weil er ihrer Meinung nach nur blöd rumsteht. Ich denke zwar, dass nichts so gut und schick rumstehen kann wie ein 80er Analog Synthesizer, aber das zählt nicht. Da ich leider nie weiter gekommen bin als die Immobilie mit dem Gerät voll zu lärmen, ist meine Frau immer hartnäckiger geworden. Jetzt da ich zwischen den Tasten wie zufällig eine Visitenkarte eines bekannten Scheidungsanwaltes gefunden habe, werde ich mich beugen müssen. Er ist also zum Abschuss freigegeben.” Link

” The Korg Poly 61 is an amazing instrument. This unit had been kept in storage for many years which the battery did it’s typical thing. Aftwr replacing the battery I then went through the entire piece and checked resistors for poor contact and any solder joints or damaged traces. All checked out and the boards were cleaned as well as the keys and carbon buttons. Next a factory patch was loaded in for purpose of testing. I will also include a non factory patch with your purchase that was done. The non factory patch really makes this piece sing. It’s got that beautiful synth sound to it.

The unit itself is in amazing condition. I have taken several photos to show its condition and if you’d like any more, please ask.

The 509 board is the typical problem with these due in part to the old Nicad batteries leaking all over the boards causing some major issues. These are getting harder to find for that reason. Even harder to find in this nice of condition. The keys are all perfect with no chips and the only area that shows wear is the corners where the silver has slightly been worn off. Otherwise the unit is quite lovely. ”

“This is the Korg Poly 61M. It’s their first MIDI synth. It’s in phenomenal physical shape for a synth of it’s age. (Made in 1983) Not perfect, but pretty darn close cosmetically. I sold this on ebay a couple months ago, and it was returned as not working. When I got it back, I hooked it up, and everything was working. I went to get my phone to make a video to send to the buyer who returned it, and when I came back it wasn’t displaying the patch number anymore, and not making noise. I turned it off then back on, and it worked again for a couple minutes before the patch number disappeared again with no noise. I’ve turned it on a few times since then and sometimes it comes on and sometimes it doesn’t. I played it for like 20 minutes the other day, and just shut it off when I was done, so I dunno, but no guarentees on this one, sold as is for parts or repair only. No returns. Really heavy duty hard shell case included, latches a little banged up, but still work. Will be shipped fully insured.” Link

“This listing is for a korg poly-61 synthesizer keyboard. Item works great and is in overall great shape. All keys work and are in great shape. Everything is intact, all buttons work. Previous owner had place stickers on the white keys to help memorize the notes. Stickers will come off, might be a bit of a chore, but I am going to sell this with them still on. Any citrus based goop remover should do the job if you’re interested in removing the stickers. ” Link

“Used – in mostly working condition but needs some small repairs. I recently had it serviced by a Korg Specialized Technician and was told that it could easily be fixed. He did a tune up, replaced the contact strips, and cleaned all of the boards. A few of the keys will go back and forth between working and not working. It has been in storage for around 9 years. . Despite this, the Technician told me it was in a good condition, it just needs a little bit of TLC.It also has some small surface scratches, as you can see in the pictures. I hate to sell it – but we just found out we have a baby on the way! If you have any inquiries about this synthesizer please PM me, I am more than happy to assist you.” Link

“The display, controls, buttons, arpeggiator, joystick all function. There is damage from the telltale battery leakage these synths are known for. The battery has been replaced and the board scrubbed, but its unknown what components may have been damaged by the leaked acid. The synth case shows some minor damage. The keys all appear to function.” Link

“All voices working
Pitch bend is NOT working
This, like all Poly 61s is a bit quirky, but its core functionality is great.
All buttons work (though they can be a little sticky)
The synth is generally easy to program.
Comes in a Giant carry case made just for this synth. ” Link

“Kong Poly-61M. Works perfectly with one exception, the tempo control for the arpeggiator is jumpy. It works but does not work is a smooth linear fashion. All of the remaining controls work perfectly. Even the patch select buttons, which are usually intermittent on these boards, work like new. There are some dings in the wood (see photos) and some marks on the keys (see photos) but this shows the least wear of any Poly 61 I’ve seen. Look at the close up photos where you see no wear of the control surface paint which is amazing for a synth over 30 years old.” Link

“This is an Older Version of the Korg Poly 61 in great shape. It was serviced a couple years ago and has not been used since. All the keys and buttons function with the exception of a couple slightly scratchy ones. However, while testing it, that seems to be going away. All the key contacts were carefully removed and cleaned with alcohol. The arp, parameter, value and chord hold options also function. It may need a couple of rubber contact key replacements soon. There seems to be no battery leakage as far as I can determine. Some of the patches are a little funky as if they may have been edited at one time. I will send it in a road case that is missing the handle just for safe shipping. The unit is an older version and does not have MIDI. It is in very nice shape for its age cosmetically” Link

“Up for sale is a Korg Poly-61 M synthesizer! This synth feature 6 DCO, Midi implementation and an arpegiator that can receive trig signal.

Take note that the wooden side show some wear particully on the left side. Make sure to look at all the photo to have a good idea of what i mean by that. Also the “write” and “6” button can be a bit sticky and sometime need to be pressed 2 or 3 times to work.

Other than those two small issues the synth is in really great condition! The front panel is very clean, everything works and it sound just amazing!” Link

“This unit has a few issues please read.

Battery had slight leak this was cleaned up and battery was replaced.

All key contacts recoated and work fine.

Output seems to be a bit quieter but headphones seems fine and louder.

PLEASE NOTE: not all the presets work, perhaps ones of the voices is down. The string pad and piano sounds don’t work on this or sound very faint however the squarewave and bass sounds still work and sound incredible. This needs some attention and is sold as is.

This requires attention if you want it to work as it should.”

p61 “Bought this great Poly-61 Synth in amazing condition 3 months ago from the original owner who took immaculate care of it. I had one in the 80’s and really regretted selling it when my kids were little. I got the fix out of my system, haven’t played it in weeks and have decided to sell it. It’s almost like new and has a really great case as well as all the original manuals. The original owner had taken some great notes and those are included as well. All the keys and functions worked perfectly. It’s too heavy to ship so I’m selling it as a pick up only.” Link
