“KORG Poly-61 Analog Synthesizer – poly 61 korg. Condition is “For parts or not working”. Collection in person only.
I brought this refurbished from eBay around 10-15 years ago. I believe it has had a new battery installed (I cant see any signs of damage on the motherboard) as well an additional memory bank – this can be toggled on and off using a switch (See pictures)
It works intermittently, times when it doesn’t work the volume is very low – sometimes it has to warm up. Not all keys work – maybe 10 of the 61 are dodgy (theres a delay) and the pots are noisy. The case shows wear and tear, especially on the feet and the back. The digital display and the number selector doesn’t work correctly – sometimes different numbers show – i.e. a 7 for a 1. Sometimes, pressing a parameter button will trigger a note – quite odd – sometimes a weird high pitched buzzing sound is played alongside a note. Defiantly a project for a someone who knows what they are doing and TBH I don’t have the time or patient to mess around with it. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
