“Yamaha CS-5 Monophonic Synthesizer (1978-1983) in excellent condition.

The CS-5 has been electronically and cosmetically serviced by our technician. There are some minor surface marks around the square wave pot in the mixer section, otherwise there are no obvious sign of wear to the synthesizer, which is in excellent shape. Functionally, the Synthesizer works perfectly. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Item: Vintage Yamaha cs-5, 37 key monophonic (1 note at a time) analog synthesizer.

This item is in good condition, and I just played with it, and it plays fine and sounds fat.

Should work well for the buyer as it seems to be fully working. Nice sound. No returns, sold as-is.

This is the rare u.s. version with a 120v power supply.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” Yamaha CS-5 Analogue Synthesiser – Good condition – Looks to have been recapped by the previous owner.

It is a single-oscillator monophonic analog synthesizer with filter, envelope and modulation controls. It features 37 full-sized keys, a multi-mode 12 dB/Oct resonant filter, an LFO with sample and hold, and an external audio input you can route through the VCF or VCA sections. The CS-5 is a very flexible analog synth that is quite capable of warm analog bass and bubbly synth effects. It also has a professional mod of 2 extra sockets to control cut-off frequency and EG depth.

This is a great synth – not a time warp piece as it has a few scratches here and there but in great overall condition and everything works as it should. It also has the full complement of faders and caps. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Excellent sounding synth with that gorgeous rich CS Filter. Kent Spong recently serviced this and installed a new voice chip, future proofed. I have the invoice to prove this. UK Voltage model.

It sounds amazing, fat and rich, very early Depeche Mode (it’s all over their Speak And Spell album) and is unlike any other synth I have owned where most sound the same, this is very unique.

As you can see in the images it is in excellent condition, never left my studio and I am a non smoker. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Much loved vintage analogue mono synth, dating from the late 70’s. Sounds fantastic and has tons of character. As used by Aphex Twin and Depeche Mode. Finally letting it go to make room for an ever expanding modular system.

Full size keys, single VCO (square and saw) with PWM and glide, pitch bend, noise, LFO, Resonant VCF (High Pass, Band Pass, Low Pass), VCA and ADSR envelope generator. Also has a sample and hold circuit along with an external in, which are quite unusual for this type of mono synth. Running external gear (guitars sound great) or audio through the filter sounds really good.

External trigger knob has broken off but the control and circuit are still fully functional and easy enough to adjust. This and a few cosmetic blemishes aside, it’s in perfect working order….impressive considering it’s older than me! ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Yamaha CS5 Vintage Analogue Monophonic Synthesizer. Up for auction is this Yamaha synthesizer from the late 70’s which in my opinion is in very good condition for its age, not perfect but all in all it’s a good example with very few scuffs and definitely no pitting which I’ve seen on other examples. If I had to rate it cosmetically I’d give it 8 out of 10. It all plays ok but I did notice a couple of pots were a bit scratchy. I will post the synth very thoroughly indeed. The synth is 240v.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This CS-5 was serviced two years ago and it is in good working condition currently, although it could use a cleaning because some of the notes sound dirty. If you’re reading this you most likely know about this acid house bass classic. Easy to replicate TB303 sounds with the Yamaha CS5. Endless hours of fun running external instruments through the filter in the back. ” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Hi there, I’m selling a Yamaha CS-5 in decent cosmetic condition for the age however it is not fully operational, so listed for parts only

It is functioning in LPF mode, “noise” and “external in” are working, however it barely functions in HPF and BPF modes and the power supply is hold together with tape
(so be careful when using it or perhaps replace the plastic incasing, cheap and easy)
The pitch bend slider cover is missing but functioning
Potentiometers are scratchy however probably needs exercising and cleaning

If someone is up for a little restoration project, I’ve evidently not been bothered but opening it up and cleaning the hell out of it might do the trick” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“For sale – one Yamaha CS-5 monophonic analogue synthesiser.
Single oscillator but very flexible and capable of complex sounds.

Home studio use only, never gigged and from a smoke free and pet free environment.

Keys function as they should, VCO /VCF / VCA etc all work, switches route without issue.

Very minor noise on a couple of control pots but as this is a 1978 instrument, it is not surprising.
Either a small spray of contact cleaner or simply using it more than I do should sort this.

Please remember, this is is a 1970’s analogue synth, it is not new, not digital and has no memories.
Check it out online if you’re unsure what it is or does.”

“Yamaha CS-5 Vintage Analogue Synth with Kenton filter CV socket upgrade.

A great vintage mono synth if you’re on a budget, great for fat squelchy bass lines.

In working order but would benefit from a service as a few of the pots are a bit crackly or have dead spots (listed below). Should be a relatively simple job of replacing the pots.”
