Yamaha CS-60 Restoration (Part 1) - Full Guide, Overveiw, Power Supply, Recapping

Published on Jan 8, 2017 GOLT !

"Full service guide for the Yamaha CS-60. How to calibrate the power supply and replace all electrolytic capacitors."

Some gems in this one. For example, I didn't realize the CS60 and CS80 had independent keyboard tracking settings for each half of the keyboard. Also a good warning regarding the risk of static damage to CMOS chips due to the lack of grounding on the CS60 because of its wooden case. Never knew the mod section case was made of wood for that matter. This is a wonderful video for synth enthusiasts curious about the inner workings of our little treasures. Huge thanks to GOLT ! for making these.
