Yamaha CS-01 SN 38387

via this auction

"Here is one perfectly working little Yamaha CS-01 Mark I in the rare black / gold / red colour scheme.

The CS-01 is an excellent analogue monosynth for leads and basslines, with all the filter, envelope, and modulation controls you would expect on a subtractive synth. It is a great tool for learning and explaining analogue subtractive synthesis too! I have even used it to make drum sounds, which I then recorded into a sampler.

It is in excellent condition, with no missing faders or buttons, just a few marks. See pictures. The only fault is a missing battery cover. I bought the synth this way, and I have gigged with it and the batteries have never fallen out, so I have not replaced it!

I do not have a mains power supply for this synth, because it's battery life is stellar. Over a year of regular use. Being analogue, low battery life will not make it suddenly switch off, it will just gradually get quieter and introduce a bit of distortion."
