“Yamaha CS60 Synthesizer With Legs Working Condition. Ive had this for many years but now it’s time for me to downsize. This board can create some really cool sounds! I just took it in to my tech to have it checked over. He said everything is working. He says at some point the power supply should be recapped but it’s working fine for now. All keys, switches and buttons are working as well as the pitch ribbon above the keys. The case is in good condition. I do have the Yamaha bag with the legs as well. The zipper on the bag will need to be restiched on one side. There is one broken knob on one of the legs. They still hold together without it but i will include it.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Here is my Yamaha cs60. This is a truly awesome synth! I recently had this fully serviced/calibrated with original chips/caps and spent over $1500 doing it! I don’t have the lid or legs so I’m pricing it a little lower than the others. Has some bumps and bruises but nothing major, it sounds/works great. Please see pics for details. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“For sale is a classic analogue synth, the CS60 is the Sister of the legendary CS80! I’ve had her for 10 years and will be very sad to see her go. She has been serviced with a new power supply fitted, caps done and Kenton midi fitted. I’ve never had any problems with tuning and the ribbon cable all works as it should.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Aside from it’s bigger sibling the CS80 (basically 2 CS60s under one hood), it’s hard to beat the versatility and sheer expressiveness of the CS60… Paddles for every parameter… Juicy aftertouch assignable to numerous destinations . . . and that SOUND made famous by the great Vangelis . . .

You’ll not find a better condition CS60. It’s over 40 years old and not perfect but in remarkable condition and everything functions 100%. The touch slider feels practically new. It’s been respected and babied it’s whole life. This one also comes with the original legs, carrying case for the legs, AND expression pedal (I use for volume generally)! One thing to note: one of the 6 voices is pitched slightly flat. This is just the tuning of a pot internally but it didn’t bother me enough to do it. This is for the new owner if they desire. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“I discovered this from the original owner’s son about two years ago and to find something this old to be in such a highly preserved condition, is rare. The synth stayed in his home since it was new. His son wasn’t a musician so he had no need for it, so I purchased it. I am a pilot and loaded it in my airplane and flew it home. Every switch and dial works perfectly and the keyboard feels new, the ribbon controller works perfectly, the keyboard feels new, the aftertouch is flawless and the sound is magical. Yamaha clearly put all of their pride into these keyboards back in the day, as nothing in my studio has this build quality.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“For sale is my excellent condition, fully functional Yamaha CS60 synth. It has just been fully serviced by Retrolinear in the Philadelphia area. Retrolinear knows CS60s very well – they routinely service them for clients, including a few touring musicians who are still using them (Page McConnell of Phish being one of his clients). I have attached the invoice showing details of the work.

Functionally – Every slider, switch, the ribbon controller, and especially important, the aftertouch all work flawlessly. All voices function and are in tune.

Cosmetically – My CS60 is in excellent shape. The silkscreen is near perfect and the entire control panel has only like 2 very small chips and one scrape mark from a fader cap digging into the panel (pictured). The two chips are just above the keybed so don’t take away from the cleanliness of the control panel (one is pictured). The tolex on the case is original and in very good condition – again, excellent considering its age.

Overall – This synth was never abused. It spent most of its life in the home of a musician – it was never toured.

The original tolexed hard cover and removable music stand are included – the stand attaches to the inside of the lid. I do not have the original legs. The CS-60 gets you most of the CS-80 sound at a fraction of the cost. The aftertouch truly adds to the expressiveness of the synth.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This synthesizer has been owned by one person and has obviously been kept in incredible condition. Every switch and dial works perfectly, and the sound is magical. This piece is good enough to put on display at a synth museum.

I live in CT and am a pilot and aircraft owner and rather than have it shipped to me, I picked it up and flew it back. And if I can, I’d be willing to fly it out personally to any local airport east of Chicago for the price of shipping (will cost me more in gas alone), if we can schedule a date. This synth means that much. If for whatever reason we can’t coordinate a date, it will be meticulously packed and insured if shipped.”

“I’ve had this keyboard for about 20 years. I’ve had it stored for the past 15 or so. I fired it up and it doesn’t work quite right. It’s hard to explain but when you play a key, it make a high pitch sound until you push it about 6 times or so. I’m able to make chords but I don’t know what’s going on. All the keys work and the controls work as well as the pitch strip. I think something is wrong with some of the voices. I have no idea. It sounds good though! I have the original legs with the Yamaha bag. The zipper has come loose on one side but that can be fixed. One of the knobs that holds the support is broken but the screw is there to tighten it anyway. I also have the music holder as well. I love this thing and don’t really want to sell it so no low ballers! ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

yamaha-cs60 “Up for sale is this holy grail Yamaha CS60 analog synth. It’s just as cool as it is heavy and can pretty much cop any sound you can imagine. Unique features include the Ring Modulator, super cool velvet ribbon controller, and organ style patch switches.

This CS60 cosmetically is in great shape for it’s age. It does have a chip in the wood paneling and some normal scuffs and scratches associated with age. The keys are in great shape and all knobs and switches are accounted for.

Unfortunately this CS60 was the victim of some naughty feline who often used it as a place to relieve him/herself. We cleaned it the best we could although it still smells of urine, and the synth does not seem to be 100% functional. All the keys work, and the knobs/switches/parameters do effect the sound but when 1 note is played in succession, the pitch jumps around to seemingly random notes. There is also corrosion on many of the boards. So it will need some restoration, although it’s not dead by a long shot.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

cs-60 “For sale is a Yamaha CS-60 vintage analog synthesizer.
This synth is fully functional and plays great. Everything is working as it should. The only issue is the ribbon cable, only the lower portion of it is responding. I am not sure how easy it to fix the ribbon cable, but the synth is still very playable without using the ribbon cable.

All keys trigger perfectly, the keyboard plays smoothly, pots are scratchy free and turn easily and smooth. Tuning is great and stable after it warms up a bit. Includes rare leg stands, carry bag for the legs, original manual and case lid. Cosmetically its in nice condition, there are some scruffs and wear on the outside of the case but the synth control panel is in great shape. Check out the pictures below to make sure you like it. The CS-60 is probably the closet you can get to the sound of the CS-80 without the huge price tag. It has a super huge thick creamy tone and is a real joy to play. This is a great chance to own a legendary synth. Don’t miss out!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

used yamaha cs60 “Hi. I’m selling a classic Yamaha CS-60 Synthesizer in great shape.
Functionally, this synth is as near-perfect as you will find! I had it worked on by synth specialist here in LA just a few months ago. All 8 voices are now excellently in tune and all the functions, keys, sliders, buttons, and ribbon controller work perfectly. He told me it shouldn’t need another tune-up for years.

Cosmetically, there are a few very minor scratches on the front panel, some marks and tiny tears on the tolex exterior, and a small name written in marker (which is very difficult to see) – nothing out of the ordinary… cmon, this thing is roughly 40 years old!

If you’re looking, I’m sure you know just how special this synth is. It has nearly all the functionality of the legendary & gigantic CS-80, which now go for $15-20k (if you can find one). Double track sounds on this manageably-sized CS-60 and you’re basically there, sonically speaking. In any case, the CS-60 truly sounds phenomenal on it’s own and is a secret go-to in the synth collections of many producers and artists. This is analog at it’s best!

Comes with original cover and a xerox copy of the original manual. I can also give the buyer the legs, although I’ve never used them, as they’re much more wobbly than a modern keyboard stand. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

CS-60, Yamaha @ 20 November 2015, Comments Off on Yamaha CS60

cs60 “A relative of the CS-80 but still a giant rare analog monster polysynth. The CS-60 itself has a built on lid so it’s been kept in very good condition for an old boy. The ribbon controller works fine & all the programming controls are responding as they should. It’s not missing any of it’s parts and we have never had any problems/faults with it. It’s got a rep for tuning issues but I’ve not experience that at all. I’ve not move it since I got it & is the position it’s at now, which has probably helped.

I’d say it’s not as programmable as a CS-80 but it can manage the famous brass lead/pad sounds used in soundtracks such as Bladerunner as all the presets are identical coming from the same preset family.

The ring mod gives some most beautiful swirly pads that I can’t replicate on other synths that’s including plugins. There is just something solid about the sound in a mix.

Highpass and lowpass filters allow some lovely resonant string pads.” Link

cs-60“Not ‘reface’…THE face!! Original Yamaha CS-60 polyphonic analog synthesizer, the queen to the CS-80s king, half the guts and all the glory. Professionally owned, studio kept, all keys, knobs & sliders work and play beautifully. Nearly 40 years old, still unequalled by pale software or VA imitations. This one comes with the original chrome legs/stand, owner’s and service manual, control pedal and BAG for pedal, and sustain-type pedal (not pictured). It’s been a dream come true and a pure joy to own and play this, may you be just as delighted” Click here to visit listing on eBay

cs60“This auction is for (1) Yamaha CS-60 in excellent working condition. Plays in tune after a normal 5 minute warmup. All keys are level and work. Aftertouch works. Ring mod works. Everything works! I had a brand new gold spring installed in the ribbon a few years back ($360 value). If you have been interested in purchasing a CS-60 – this is the one to buy. (Plus, it’s stateside so no worries purchasing a unit from Japan!). I know I am crazy for selling this synth but I am getting older, playing less, and I hate to see these vintage instruments sitting around not being enjoyed by musicians. Images of the actual synth included below.

I am including an original Yamaha expression pedal and newer Yamaha sustain pedal to use with the synth. I have some replacement chips I purchased years ago in case of service emergencies that I will also include. The legs are not included as they were not included when I purchased the synth from the original owner years ago.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” For sale, one Yamaha CS-60 polyphonic synthesizer.This is the baby brother of the legendary and ludicrously priced CS-80, and a chance to get your hands on some true CS-80 tone at a much more reasonable outlay.This is a very reluctant sale, but sadly unavoidable right now.This synth is in fantastic condition for it’s age, and has spent its life in clean professional studios where it has been very well taken care of.Its only previous owner is a friend of the family who bought it new so I can guarantee it’s been very well looked after.It has recently been fully serviced by Bob Sinclair, who is the UKs No.1 service engineer for vintage analogue synths. It’s fully operational and in superb working condition.I am happy to post, but please bear in mind this thing weighs a bit, so you might be happier picking up from central London.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
