Yamaha CS-15

“YAMAHA CS15 Monophonic Analog Synthesizer. This is a great lesser known mono-synth which I’ve used extensively for both bass and lead sounds. It’s added secret weapon is the audio trigger input which is a super cool feature for adding dimension to other sources such as kick drums. Was serviced a little while back by top UK tech Tim Wallhead and is all in good working order apart from one missing slider cap on the pitch bender (see photos). Condition is “Used”.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Selling my incredible Korg CS-15 which I had completely serviced last year by Rosen Sound. It’s a 100v Japanese unit that has been rewired for 120v so you will not need a step down converter. Everything works perfectly as it should. It’s got custom black wood side cheeks as well as a 3.5mm Kenton filter socket. Also included is a really nice custom cover. This synth is an amazing machine and capable of some very unique sounds. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Beautiful Yamaha CS-15 and case. The synth is in excellent (beautiful!) condition and sounds quite nice. I purchased it from Soundgas (UK) last year and they cleaned, tuned-up, and inspected it prior to shipping it to the states. Please note: this is a Japanese synth and requires a transformer (not included). Also, the case does have one broken hinge, but otherwise it is in working order. Comes with original manual.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Up for auction is this Yamaha CS-15 Monophonic Analog Synthesizer. This works but is being sold for parts or repair. Unit has been in storage for a while and some controls need to be cleaned, they don’t turn, so unable to test if they work. The controls that I could test work fine. Unit is clean inside and out. Cosmetically very good but it does have some wear the worst being a chip by the power button. The tops of two controls on the equalizers broke off but they work. And a few plastic knobs are missing but for the most part the unit is complete. Please check the pictures for condition. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” Works. I cleaned all pots and switches it needs a technician to fix the decay or release of the tone . Unit passes audio , vcos and oscillators are functional but needs to be tweaked by synth tech to be 100 percent . I will list sold as is for parts not working but you can call me and I’ll play it so you can hear it . audio no distortion in signal at all . The only problem I see with unit is when you play a note it works but it doesn’t decay .”

About this Yamaha CS15

Overall, the synth is in superb working condition.

Cosmetic condition is excellent. The front panel is very clean, with only minor blemishes. The side panels are nice and tidy and the rear panel is also clean with only minor marks and blemishes.

All knobs, sliders and switches are present, original and function correctly.

All keys are clean and aligned and contact correctly.

The unit was tested today and the synth is working as it should be: 100% functional.

The synth is a 100v model so is supplied with a good quality UK made step down transformer.”

“Up for sale is this vintage Yamaha CS-15 analog monophonic synthesizer. This one of the great lesser known synthesizers of the 70s. This particular example has it’s share of cosmetic wear, as shown in the photos, but the unit does power on and it does work. Most parameters function as well but to what extent I can’t be sure as I don’t have a basis for comparison. The three lowest keys do not produce sound, and the external input does not seem to work either. This synth will need to be gone through by a professional before it is 100% functional.”

“Rare Yamaha in good working order.

No cracks, rust or chipped keys.

Excellent sounding as you can imagine.

Trigger/ Cv connections checked and working fine with my Kenton and other synth. Never outside my house, non smoking environment.

Two keys down the scale might need attention as not responding right away but that’s about it. Will definitely benefit from professional check as every synth from that era would.”

“I would recommend that this CS-15 requires a service for full perfect functionality. General wear and tear as photographed in the provided images.

The slider knobs are missing from the Portamento and Pitch Bend (as photographed), and there’s a small split in the power cable (as photographed), which doesn’t compromise the functionality of the synthesiser.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Up for auction is a Yamaha CS-15 analog synthesizer. It’s functional but it does have some issues. Sometimes the filter selection switches don’t work until you switch them a couple of times between the filter types. Some of the sliders and knobs can be scratchy/noisey. It’s around 37 years old and could use a little tlc for sure. I’ve successfully sequenced it with a Kenton Pro Solo midi to cv converter, a Korg SQ-1, and a Future Retro Möbius. The synth has a fantastic sounding set of filters on it and the ability to route external audio through them is great. Although it has some age issues it still works as it should the majority of the time and sounds like nothing else. ”

cs15 “This Yamaha CS-15 was probably the most loved and used by my husband when he used to perform live gigs in Los Angeles. It is in good shape. A mark or scruff here or there. He took very good care of this instrument. I hate to let it go, but I just don’t have the room to store it. I am selling it “AS IS.” It’s too heavy for me to ship, so I am selling it as Pick Up Only. It does power-up, but I am not sure if it works properly. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

The slider cap on the BRILLIANCE slider is missing (see pictures). It still works fine. The knobs and sliders need to be cleaned. This keyboard has been in storage for a while. Cosmetically, the keyboard has some scratches and spots of typical wear but still looks really nice overall (see pictures). This auction is for the CS-15 keyboard in the pictures only.
