“The unit powered up fine but the keys would only make a popping sound. I had read about the bad internal batteries so I had a new one installed even though the old one had no signs of leaking anywhere. That did not fix the problem and that is about as far as I can go with the repair without knowing how to test for problems. I am selling the keyboard as/is since I have no clue what the issue may be. If you would like the old battery I can enclose that with the keyboard.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“FS: Clean #Korg #Poly61. 3&4 numeric buttons double-press at times but totally work (replacing tact switches of all numerics would be wise at some point). Also, 1 or 2 keys need their contacts reseated/cleaned. Again, all work but I’m a very discerning seller who strives for maximum accuracy. If you’re wanting an 80’s 2 DCO polysynth with a lush sound akin to the Juno 6/60 and has an arpeggiator w/ arp input for stepping via a trigger/gate and doesn’t break the bank, this is it. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” 1983 Korg Poly 61 home use only never gigged I’ve owned it from new, works fine. cosmetic damage to C key one octave down from top,(see photo) replacements are about £6 off e-bay. I’ve lost the manual but it is self explanatory parameters are printed on the top as you can see, so you type in the parameter number and adjust as you key the sound, simples.

“FS: Korg Poly61: 80’s 2 DCO goodness with chord memory & an arp (arp can trigger chords in chord mem mode). Theirs also an arp trig input for stepping the arp ala #Juno60/6. Filter sounds a lot like the #DW8000 to me. Everything works. A few of the numeric buttons could stand to have their tact switches replaced, but they do work. Sold as-is due to the unpredictable nature of vintage synths.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“The Korg Poly 61M, first of the Nobless synthesizers, is the same as the Poly61 but with a MIDI in/our port. This machine is in superb shape, with excellent circuit board, and all components are in full working order. The best way to see how amazing this instrument this is, is by watching a short tutorial on the two best selling points of this instrument- the arpeggiator and, of course, making programs that can be saved to memory. The biggest cosmetic defects are a ding in the back corner (visible in the power-cable photo, and some spray paint dots on the left side).

Purchase includes:

-Korg Poly 61M synthesizer

-A bound copy of the manual

– quarter-inch male-male cable

-18-foot eighth-inch female-male extender cable

– eighth-inch male-females splitter

-eighth inch to quarter-inch adapter

-Apple earbuds (the nice $30 ones)” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Serviced one month ago at the excellent keyboard repair department of Main Drag in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, this Korg Poly-61 M works perfectly, has cleaned pots and switches, and comes with all the original factory presets on board. Has a few cosmetic dings and nicks on the wooden side panels, but otherwise like new. Condition excellent / very good. RARE. This is the only one I’ve ever seen. Arpeggiator and joystick plus the chord memory feature make this a unique addition to anyone’s analog keyboard collection. Great for the ‘Stranger Things’ vibe too. Gritty 80s basses, weird squiggly strings, fun to play with the joystick to modulate the sounds.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“So I got this board off here in November as working, & no it could use some help. As in it works and makes sound,but it’s not right.

He gave me a partial discount, & I was gonna fix it, but long story short, I’m selling it.

All keys sound, all number indicators work , 7 can be a little sticky appregiator button, not working. Joystick attached. Wooden end caps in good shape for 1983 board. There are some small indentions on the right side of the keyboard. When patches are selected some are soft in sound, & some are plain wonky (though kinda cool if you wanna get experimental). ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” Up For Auction – Korg POLY 61M Vintage Analog Synthesizer, 61-keys W/Anvil Type Case – Excellent Condition. I purchased the keyboard in 1985 from Daddy’s Junky Music on Newbury St in Boston, MA.

It has spring loaded handles on both sides and dolly wheels to make moving easier. Owners manual included. The case measures approximately 45″W x 25″D x 12.5″H and weighs 58lbs.

“This synthesizer is in good used condition, with some minor scuffs and scratches across the body. Power cable is hardwired. Pitch/Mod stick works as expected. Every key produces sound. Minimal testing of sound shaping functions though all seems to work. There may be issue of which we are unaware due to not being able to fully test this unit. Because of any unforeseen issues, being listed as Parts & Repair.”

“1982 KORG Poly-61 Poly61 Vintage Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer Works! Roland Juno 60

The Korg Poly-61 is similar in features and sound to the Roland Juno 60. The Arpeggiator and Chord Memory are two of the coolest features. You can sync an analog drum machine that has a trigger out (like the Korg Rhythm 55 KR-55) to the arpeggiator for more fun.

This unit was a victim of battery leakage. It was professionally repaired and a new battery was installed.

Condition notes:
– Missing one screw (and its cam screw on the back side) of the top panel
– Back, bottom-right corner is broken off (see pictures)
– Dings and scrapes
– Some non-original bolts on bottom

Specs:
– 6 voice polyphony
– 2, digitally-controlled, oscillators (DCO) per voice
– 64 program memory locations
– Large LED display
– Fast, 8-second cassette tape interface (can be used with any sound source such as an MP3 file on your computer)
– Versatile arpeggiator with Latch Mode
– Chord Memory/Unison and Hold Modes
– Four-way joystick with separate LFO frequency
– Full-size, five octave keyboard (not velocity or pressure sensitive)” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Excellent condition. Near mint with only minor signs of wear, very clean considering the age of the keyboard. Came from a major label artist’s studio, he had purchased this recently as a refurbished unit. I don’t currently have the refurbishing details but it is fully functional and in excellent shape.

It is fully functional, all keys working, all switches responding, midi, tape interface working and factory programs loaded.

Cosmetic blemishes- slight edge damage on the right cheek shown. Still, among the nicest, I’ve seen, especially lately…

No calibration was needed- still at factory spec. All voices match. All original chips.

Please see all pics. All original screws/washers are intact, but several pics don’t show them.

“1983 KORG Poly-61 Poly61 Vintage Analog Synthesizer For Parts or Repair

This keyboard was a victim of battery leakage. The repair shop I took it to tried their best to fix the issues. But, problems still remain. So, it is being sold, “as is”, for parts or repair.

The good:

– All keys work*
– Memory works (new, jury-rigged, replacement battery)
– Joystick works
– All functions and modes work (poly, chord memory, hold, arpeggiator, tuning, tape load, arpeggio in, etc.)
– LED displays and lights work

The bad:
– Buttons 1, 2 & 3 are hard to get to work with just one touch – usually triggers multiple times
– Missing one screw (and its cam screw on the back side) on the top panel
– *Bottom C, C# and middle C# have contact issues
– Missing one rubber foot on bottom

& The Ugly:
– Back, bottom-right corner is broken off (see pictures)
– Joystick is bent

“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.

“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.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” 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.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
