“Good used condition. The LFO, VCF and VCA pots are a little dirty but everything works fine. It has just some light marks and scratches from age and typical use. Ships as shown.” Link

“This CS-5 is in good working order. I have been playing it though my hi-if and it sounds great. I copied some fella demonstrating a CS-5 on youtube and managed to create all the sounds he could make. As you have probably gathered I am no expect, if you wanted to come and visit to test it that’s fine. ”

“This synth is in excellent condition for its age!!! It is fully functional and sounds great, this synth has so much character!! The only cosmetic flaw on it is the pitch bend slider cap is broken off (as pictured ^) but it is still super easy to move the slider, it does not effect its use at all. It is hard to believe it is in such nice shape, maybe a couple of tiny scratches and scuffs here and there from normal use. Again, it is fully functional, everything works as it should, it’s a real beauty.” Link

The synth is from Japan and works on 100v. You may need a transformer depending on your country.” Link

cs-5 “Yamaha CS5 vintage monophonic synth, introduced in 1979 as the entry-level CS model. It’s a great little analog machine, with 3 decent filters (HP,BP and LP) and 3 LFO shapes including sample & hold for those retro ‘computer’ sounds, as well as an external sound input. I’ve included a photocopied instruction manual.

Model is still in full working order – sounds perfect! And excellent cosmetic condition with a few little scuffs/scratches to the surface (see pics)” Link

cs5“This synth is in very nice condition for it’s age. There are some scratches etc but generally very good. Please check the photos at the bottom of the page for the cosmetic condition. (please note the top C key that looks a bit lower than the rest of the keyboard has been fixed now. I didn’t see the problem when I took the photos)

Fully checked, all parameters and input and output jacks.
Tuned and adjusted.
All the pots and the slider have been carefully cleaned along with all the key contacts.

Wicked sound, extremely unique.

This unit is 100 v 50/60 HZ, you may need a power transformer (very easy to get hold of) depending on your country.” Link

used yamaha cs5“amaha CS5 analogue monophonic synth which as far as I can tell is in full working order.
The synth has been updated with real wood end panels and new updated knobs which really give it a fresh look.

Condition is good bearing in mind its around 35 years old. It has scratch’s here and there mainly on the bottom as shown in the pic, and one or two of the pots are a little fuzzy which is to be expected on an old synth. The only other thing of not is a small hole in one of the keys again shown in a pic, roughly the size of a pin.

Lastly but not least is I am including its flightcase in the sale which I had custom made for the synth a few years ago at a cost of over £175. This ensures your investment stays in one piece for years to come should you wish to move it about.” Link

cs5 “I’m selling my beloved Yamaha CS-5 analogue synth, used by greats like Depeche Mode, New Order, Human League, Gary Numan, Soft Cell, Aphex Twin, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Sputnik etc. Used on countless records over the decades. Becoming very difficult to find now in good, working condition (that isn’t insanely over-priced too!)

Selling as I want to save up to buy something else. Time for someone else to have fun with this thing now 🙂

I absolutely love this synth. It gives you everything you need in a synth to make some of the best bass sounds, hi-pitched chirps and everything in between. The real majesty of this is the pure, warm, analogue low end! If you haven’t played this through an amp with sub, YOU MUST.

Hook up a CV controller to the external input and this is a whole new beast. It can’t do extreme FX sounds using its noise generator, it’s very musical. The external input is also amazing to have. As it’s monophonic, you can use one hand to twist knobs. Reliable and compact. It also have a square wave. If you want a very musical instrument, I say go for it.” Link

cs5 “Yamaha CS-5 Vintage Analog Mono Synth

Very good condition for age. A few marks here and there but nothing drastic.

Functionally all good, apart from one key that needs to be re-fitted. Some of the pots are scratchy so would benefit from an internal clean.

Sounds amazing – as you probably know. Priced accordingly due to issues. No returns. ” Link

usedcs5“Up for sale is my trusty Yamaha CS5 vintage synth.

It is in absolutely great condition for its age and all sliders, switches and keys work exactly as they should.
Has a really great sound, gritty when it needs to be, but also mellow and haunting if that’s what you’re after – or all-out analogue chaos…

The output is lower than some other more modern synths I’ve owned but I’ve read online that the Yamaha’s were sometimes a little quiet.
Never bothered me much though as recorded it always comes out great in the mix.” Link

cs5“Here I am selling my Yamaha CS5 as I am scaling down my collection. In the past I have used this synth for sound effects and bass/lead lines as it sounds so much more authentic and warm compared to modern digital synthesizers. This great analog synthesizer also comes with the original soft case. As you can see from the photos the synth comes with a standard uk plug so no need to buy an expensive adaptor! I have kept this monophonic keyboard in it’s case for the past year but have given it a good clean before use. As I said the keyboard comes with the original vinyl case! I personally have never seen a CS5 with the same case. Unfortunately one of the zips is broken and the lining is a bit tatty but it still does the job perfectly and is ideal for travel! I guess it comes with the near 40 years this great synth has been around! Your chance to own a wonderful original analog synthesizer.” Link

cs5“YAMAHA CS-5 ANALOGUE SYNTHESIZER

This machine has been sitting in my studio for over three years. It was one of those pieces of gear that I wasn’t using but didn’t want to part with.

I powered it up and as expected it’s working perfectly just as I left it. No scratchy pots, all parameters tested. This unit also has an extra filter control jack added, a brilliant modification which makes for some amazing results.

The Yamaha build quality really is excellent, so strong and stable, no corners cut in those days…

The cosmetic condition is good, the metal work is showing it’s age but it’s pretty clean by my standards. The pitch bend slider cap was missing, so I’ve replaced it with an old Roland cap and it actually looks very good indeed.

Comes with original soft case, one tear inside the case please check the photo.” Link
