Korg Poly 61

“Korg Poly61 Vintage Analogue Synthesiser.

Working but has some issues which I’m told are an easy fix.

1. Bottom F key is sometimes sticking

2. Outout jack volume low but headphone socket to amp is fine

3. Number 1 section key needs a good jab. Needs a clean I think.

This synth just sounds so great. I think a good clean up and restore and it will be a beauty.”

Korg Poly 61

” Korg Poly61 from 80’s.Great sounding synth,gaining more followers last year or two as most decent analogues these days are exorbitantly priced.
In pretty good condition for it’s age,just the odd scratch-otherwise good for it’s age,had a new battery put in a year ago,and all keys work too.
Would prefer collection as these boards are big.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Korg Poly 61

“Collection only, I’m not risking this beauty getting smashed to bits in the post.
Korg Poly 61, works perfectly, in really nice cosmetic condition, all voices work, battery has been changed with new battery and moved away from circuit board, there has never been any battery acid corrosion etc, all buttons work fine, MIDI kit installed that has a MIDI in connection (The MIDI port is connected to a MIDI cable that you can plug into your DAW/MIDI out etc).

A Poly 61 with a MIDI in port is brilliant and makes it infinitely more fun than a standard Poly 61.

If you have lusted after a Poly 61 the this is the one – This model here looks great, sounds great and the MIDI in is the cherry on the cake.”

Korg Poly 61

” Korg Poly-61 vintage analog synthesizer with EU voltage, 220V, so external stepup converter 110v to 220v required for use in the US (this is the one I use). The sound from the device is great but there is an issue with some sticking/dead keys (see video linked below). I believe this is a common issue with old Korg synths and from what I have read is fixable though I have not attempted to repair it myself.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Korg Poly-61M

“This 61M has recently been serviced and comes in a beautiful, brand new walnut chassis. New battery, new switches, cleaned keyboard contacts. Plays and sounds great. Cosmetically the synth is near perfect with only a few very small, hardly noticeable scuffs. I would gladly make a video demonstrating that everything functions as it should, but I will not accept returns due to the sometimes unreliable nature of 40 year old synths.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Korg Poly-61M

” Korg Poly-61M completely refurbished, new oak chassis, new switches, Beautiful !

This synth was in very good condition, even before I refurbed it. I just wanted to create the best possible P-61M I could. It has never had a battery leakage, although I have updated the battery to a modern 3.6V lithium coin battery (2032) with an easy access battery holder. I refurbished the keyboard, cleaning it thoroughly piece by piece, and after polishing all the contacts, I applied the little carbon discs to each contact, as seen at sounddoctorin.com. It’s a brilliant fix, so now the keys play like new. Then I replaced all the program buttons’ switches with brand new ones, which fixes the annoying problem of not getting the buttons to work properly. Now, they are perfect. See the photo of the switch board with new (blue) switches. Then I built a brand new solid oak chassis for the synth, so as you can see, it is gorgeous, and now more solid than new. It was finished with a Satin Ebony polyurethane that goes very well with the gray panel. All pots lubricated, new knobs, all bolts and inserts for the chassis are new, and new rubber feet. Nothing is missing.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” This was Korg’s follow up to the now classic Polysix synthesizer and it if very similar. I just do not have time for anymore repairs / projects. It could possibly be an easy fix for someone that works on these. Notes are being held for some reason. Not sure of the battery works or not but I think it is a working replacement. It seems like everything else is working and it sure sounds great. Check out the little demo video.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Korg Poly-61, had the leaky battery problem. Battery board is pretty rotten. Has been cleaned up some, but still not working very well. Powers on and can play some strange sounding patches. Doesn’t let you edit the patches, doesn’t let you transfer in new ones from tape. Joystick is partially working. Very scratchy volume knob. Sold as is, no returns.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Korg Poly-61 Good overall cosmetic condition – I tried to highlight any flaws in the pictures. Serviced April 2021 Sounds Great. A great first vintage synth.

I do not accept returns.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Korg Poly 61 Project Machine

“KORG POLY 61 Synthesizer Vintage analog. Needs care. Powers up but sound output is erratic. keys may be dirty. I don’t know.
Cosmetically in good shape. I think it could be brought back to life.

So. the sound output is erratic. In some patches you press a key and sound comes out, some you have to hit hard to make a sound. Some patches, when you hit a key the note holds. some keys and patches don’t produce a sound at all.”

“Works good. Some damage to bottom edges. Joystick is bent. Number 1 button sometimes re-triggers. See pictures.

This was Korg’s answer to the Roland Juno-60 and it looks like a Juno-106 but the Poly-61 is more interesting in many ways.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Excellent vintage condition as shown in the photos. Hard case shown in the photos is included in the auction. It has scuffs and some oxidation on the metal corners and latches. There are no dents or damage on the keyboard itself that I can see. I am listing it with the condition as “for parts or not working,” because I have no facility to test it. It belonged to my late father who was a professional musician. I obviously can’t ask him about it now. So, AS-IS, FINAL SALE, no refunds or returns on this item.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Korg Poly-61 Project Machine

“KORG Poly-61 Analog Synthesizer – poly 61 korg. Condition is “For parts or not working”. Collection in person only.

I brought this refurbished from eBay around 10-15 years ago. I believe it has had a new battery installed (I cant see any signs of damage on the motherboard) as well an additional memory bank – this can be toggled on and off using a switch (See pictures)

It works intermittently, times when it doesn’t work the volume is very low – sometimes it has to warm up. Not all keys work – maybe 10 of the 61 are dodgy (theres a delay) and the pots are noisy. The case shows wear and tear, especially on the feet and the back. The digital display and the number selector doesn’t work correctly – sometimes different numbers show – i.e. a 7 for a 1. Sometimes, pressing a parameter button will trigger a note – quite odd – sometimes a weird high pitched buzzing sound is played alongside a note. Defiantly a project for a someone who knows what they are doing and TBH I don’t have the time or patient to mess around with it. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
