” Well equipped as a Synthesizer and Master Controller, all keys, controllers, and button switches function well, external samples can be imported via MIDI sample dump standard. Be aware there is a small stain in the bottom right corner of the display.(see the last picture),every bit of programming and required reading of texts in the display are 100% unaffected(no line intrusions,no symbol drop outs).There are light smudges on the top panel,and a few scuffs and nick on the bottom edge in rear. It plays well and sounds great and besides ADSR’S there’s total control of filter cut-off and resonance in programming and in real time w/ slider control and a Quick Edit mode option can get you to a patch result fast. Thank you for looking.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” This keyboard was bought for me as a gift a few Christmases ago but I have never got round to learning to play it and it is wasted with me. This is an old synth but has been very well looked after by it’s previous owner and is in very good used condition. As far as I am aware, all keys and functions are in working order. This comes with power supply and manuals. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“The only problem with the keyboard is that the floppy drive has come loose and is inside the keyboard. I think it can be easily fixed. The only other thing is that there is a crack on the left hand corner of the casing. The keyboard works OK despite these faults. Comes with 17 floppy disks with sound banks and a 64K ram card or memory card. This item is for collection only from Lincoln area.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Classic Yamaha SY85 Music Synthesizer with sample memory expansion installed. There are a few light scuffs here and there and a spot of age-related discolouration on the keys, etc., but the instrument is otherwise in very good condition.

The synthesizer itself works perfectly but the disk drive requires some attention because it is currently not reading floppy disks and displays the “disk not ready” error. The disk drive motor works and I have already replaced the drive belt but that has not solved the problem.

All user reference guides are included, together with ‘Factory Set’, ‘Demonstration’ and ‘House and Techno’ sound data disks. ”

“I bought this synth a few years ago because it had a few different sounds on board. It has not been gigged while I’ve had it though I did do a few sessions on it. I have a pile of disks with various sounds which I downloaded a few years ago. Although Korg and Yamaha share common origins I found over the years that the two brands did in fact compliment each other. The only problem I found was that it was a little complicated to operate but the sounds made it worth the agg if you get my drift. Overall condition is very good for its age with all controls working and good keyboard action.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

yamahasy85 “This keyboard has spent most of its time in recording studios and venues. It hasn’t been used for some years but is still fully functional. There are several marls on it, which are consistent with its age, but these in no way affect the performance. It has two assignable stereo outputs and a sequencer. There is also two slots for external sound cards – which I haven’t got.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

85 “This Ebay listing is for a Yamaha SY85 Synthesiser Workstation.

I acquired this second hand as part of a project I was working on which is now complete and this synth is now surplus to my needs.

It all seems to be working as it should with the exception of the floppy drive which I believe is a common fault with these – this does not seems to effect the operation of the synth though. I have been led to believe you can data dump via MIDI to save data but I have not tried this.

It does have signs of wear and tear especially on the bottom and the lower back of the rear panel where it has been taken on and off stands etc.

All the keys are working fine with no signs of breakages or cracks etc.

It has some lovely rich patches and layers.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

sy85 ” For sale is the classic SY85 workstation keyboard from the early 90’s, everything works as it should except for the floppy disk drive. The keys are clean and have a very good action. Back in the day this keyboard was in the top 5 along side the Roland D50 and the Korg M1 sharing a lot of components with the Korg, as at the time Yamaha owned Korg, most notably is that they use the same keypad, that alone justifies using this as a controller as it has a far superior action to the modern day controller keyboards.
The SY85 has a more powerful sequencer than the Korg and is easier to edit with the addition of the faders and wheel.
The disk drive does not work but everything can still be saved and loaded via midi and as this can be plugged into any Daw it is not really an issue.
It has great sounds and the onboard effects are very good, touch sensitive keys as well as having aftertouch.
Includes the original manuals.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

85Yamaha SY85 SY-85 Music Synthesizer Workstation.

Used but in good working condition. Tested through my little guitar amp Ana got plenty of sounds (sorry, I’m NOT keyboard guy). It’s quite advance for a simpleton like me. Appears to work properly except for one sticky key. Might be an easy fix for someone more skilled then a noob like me. Has slots for various upgrades and additional sound patches.

Listing is for the keyboard (and attached cord) only.”

sy85 “Hello, and thank you for visiting my listing.

You’re looking at a Yamaha SY85 in mint condition. Every aspect of this keyboard is in full, working condition.

The floppy drive was a constant pain in the butt to deal with, so i’ve replaced it with the infamous “Nalbantov USB Floppy Disk Drive Emulator” (a $140 value in itself). Now there’s no need to fumble with floppy disks/drives.”

used sy85 “This is a Yamaha SY-85 synthesizer workstation. It works well and includes a stack of floppy disk sound banks, mostly downloaded from the internet. (The banks are easy to find and download– getting them onto non-HD floppy disks is the hard part these days.) The drive works– see pictures for the loading messages. There’s some wear and scratches on the underside, but the whole thing is in generally good condition.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

sy_85” Yamaha SY85 in great condition. A classic synth workstation which I’m sad to have to sell. Won’t list the specs because they’re easily googled. Keys and controls all in perfect working order. Just tested the disk drive after not using it for years and it’s faulty – a motor whirrs but nothing is read. I’m sure the drive could be replaced if you wanted to. Or just manage your sounds and edits over MIDI if the internal storage isn’t sufficient.

Comes with Yamaha sustain pedal, original box and foams, manuals. There is cosmetic damage to the back, scratches from the plug, photographed these but they are not too noticeable.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

yamaha sy85 “If you are reading this description, you probably know about the SY-85. It has an exceptionally full sound, and its Rhodes is sizzling. Another aspect is the quality of the semi-weighted keyboard; you can feel the designers were trying to make the action more realistic.

The synth 30 years old, but it looks almost new. I’ve had it for a couple of years, and have never taken it out of the house. The screen is bright, so I don’t think the instrument has had much use over its life. Plus it sounds great.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
