Roland D-50 Linear Synthesizer

via this auction

"This is a *really nice* vintage Roland D-50 synthesizer from 1987.

When I bought around 10 years ago it had sat as a "new, open boxed" unit in the back of a music store untouched since the late 80s. As a result it was essentially in new condition when I got it, and I have treated it well ever since. It only has the most minor of cosmetic imperfections, as you can see from the photos.

Functionally everything works great: the synth sounds perfect, all buttons, joystick, sliders and LCD screen work as new. The keys plays great - velocity action is fine, but aftertouch (as with almost all mid-80s Rolands) takes some force to activate. However, the aftertouch is still very playable, unlike most other D-50 I've played.

If you've been looking for a really nice example of a D-50 to relive your teen years in the 1980s, or capture some of those decade-defining L/A patches (Fantasia, Soundtrack, Atmosphere?) then this is the unit to go for."

Roland Alpha Juno-2 Analog Synthesizer with Original Box & Music Stand

via this auction

"This is a really clean Juno-2 analog synth. It sounds perfect, and all buttons, data wheel and keys function like they should. The key velocity still works fine, but as with almost all mid-1980s Rolands the aftertouch requires a lot of force to activate. The LCD screen is crystal clear and strong, but the backlight has faded with time so it's not as bright in a dark room as it originally was (see photo).

Comes in the original shipping box, AND as a bonus the original sheet music stand. How cute is the sight of a Juno with a music stand attached?

These Junos really are the perfect compact analog polysynth: full of classic pads, leads, filter sweeps, drones and sound effects."

Pristine 1987 Casio CZ-1 Digital Synthesizer with Original Box, Cover & Manuals

via this auction

"This is a remarkably clean Casio CZ-1 synthesizer from 1987.

I bought it about 10 years ago from a music store that had it as "new, open box" stock sitting in their back room since the late 1980s (also got a Roland D-50 from them, see my other auction).

As a result it was essentially brand new when I got it, and I have treated it very well ever since. For that reason, it not only functions 100%, but is probably the cleanest, as-close-to-new example of this classic digital synth still around.

All functions work, all buttons and sliders work fine, all keys play perfectly. Notice it still has the original tops for the chorus and volume sliders - why are those missing so often on other used CZ synths? Also the LCD is still crystal clear and has kept its beautiful bluish green backlight.

Comes in its original shipping box with all original manuals AND original dust cover."

1977 Korg Poly Ensemble (PE-2000) SN 78004

via this auction

"It's highly sought after for beautifully lush strings, brass and uniquely eerie vocal choir sounds, not to mention the remarkably huge cathedral pipe organ preset. With 3 detunable VCOs (supposedly based on the divide-down VCOs from the huge Korg PS3300 modular) it has a very thick rich sound, especially when routed through the onboard phaser - pan the dry output L and mix output R for some amazing stereo animation.

Like many vintage string machines it's fully polyphonic - if you lay your arm across the keyboard, every since note will sound. However, unlike ARPs and Rolands from the same time, each key has its own envelope generator which makes playing the Korg as a polysynth much more pleasing than dealing with typical string machine note-retriggering behavior.

This Korg was completely overhauled in 2009 including recapping the power supply and recalibrating the VCOs. It plays remarkably in tune with no warm-up time needed."
