Keytar, KX-1, Yamaha @ 25 March 2011, Comments Off on Yamaha KX1

“”The KX1 is a Japanese made, very rare ( yeah, I know, everything for sale on Ebay is either unique or rare, but this unit is one of only a thousand made) 44-note remote MIDI controller with velocity and aftertouch sensitivity. FULL size keys, not toy piano sized as found on the KX5, Yamaha’s replacement instrument unit for the KX1. The ribbon controller is used to modify pitch and mod effects. Unison, sustain, and portamento buttons and a breath controller input are all there. THIS UNIT WORKS PERFECTLY!

Up to 64 patches can be accessed via 8 buttons, 4 bank buttons. This instrument represented a watershed moment in synths. Herbie Hancock’s personal KX1 now resides at the Smithsonian. The cream colored casing is made from wood, not petroleum. Cosmetically the condition is 9.5 out of 10. This particular unit was used on recordings made by the cult band Ellis Island out of Boston.

And if that’s not enough, you can get up and dance with it! Try that with a baby grand”” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
