Vintage 1980s KURZWEIL 250 K250 Digital Piano Sampler Keyboard Synthesizer

via this auction

"Here's your chance to own a monster keyboard - that originally retailed for $13k - at a tiny fraction of that price! Anyone seriously interested in this item is probably already well-versed in its history, but you can find out all about it here. This particular K250 works very well and has the A, B, C and D soundblocks installed. There are two black keys that currently do not make sound, and the D soundblock tends to be a little flaky- you have to press on the chips once in awhile to get the soundblock working again. Ideally the keys need to be reset/rebalanced, as the action is a little uneven. There's one missing slider cap, but this doesn't affect performance. Also, the case screws are missing, which on the one hand makes it easier to get inside the unit, but ideally you'd want to replace these. It's no big deal when the keyboard is setup on a stand for playing, but can become minor issue when you're moving the keyboard around. All of these issues should be fairly easy to remedy by a professional keyboard repair person. The original stand, pedal/power supply unit and manuals are included."
