Yamaha SY55

“Yamaha SY55 Music Synthesizer. Condition is “Used”.
Purchased in the 90s in New York. One original owner. Fully functional, clean in excellent cosmetic condition.
Two known minor flaws – (1) The bottom of one of the white keys is chipped (see photo). (2) A section of the power cable (about 10″) was chewed by my pet kitten and the sleeve was damaged. It was repaired by wrapping insulating electrical tape around it (see photo). The cable overall is still very sturdy and safe. But can be replaced DIY.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Up for grabs is a Yamaha SY55. We bought out a studios full inventory last year.. This synth was part of that buy out. Most items we kept, this one we are now selling. We kept it around as the Internal User bank has 64 sounds that someone in the past created. Those sounds are very atmospheric, ambient and very very David Lynch-ish. So.. we used in on a few things. Alas, time has come to sell and get some space back.

It is in full working condition and looks good, but couple things to note is that the highest white key and the lowest white key are a little loose, They still trigger good, just looser than all other keys. Also, some buttons are harder to press than others but all buttons work.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“I’ve been gallantly hanging on to this old beauty for years but needs must and it’s time to free up some space in my studio…

A rare chance to grab a Yamaha SY55 Late 80’s/Early 90’s synth.

All “obvious” features are working – ie, it plays and changes patches, outputs in stereo…

I’ve not used the Sequencer nor the MIDI for decades and never used a ROM card. I can’t see why they wouldn’t be working but it is a case of buy what you are seeing given it’s age.

The lowest black key (C#) works but needs looking at as the “spring” action isn’t working and the key itself is loose; I’ve tried to show this on the photo above but it isn’t showing very well.

Also, there is a chip out of one key as shown in the photo.

A chance to grab some genuine 80’s/90’s synth sounds for an absolute bargain – please put a bid in as I’d hate to have to throw it away!” Click here to search for synths on eBay
