Yamaha CS-60 8-Voice Synthesizer

via this auction

"Fully functional Yamaha CS60 synth. It has just been fully serviced by Retrolinear in the Philadelphia area. Retrolinear knows CS60s very well - they routinely service them for clients, including a few touring musicians who are still using them (Page McConnell of Phish being one of his clients). I have attached the invoice showing details of the work.

Functionally - Every slider, switch, the ribbon controller, and especially important, the aftertouch all work flawlessly. All voices function and are in tune.

Cosmetically - My CS60 is in excellent shape. The silkscreen is near perfect and the entire control panel has only like 2 very small chips and one scrape mark from a fader cap digging into the panel (pictured). The two chips are just above the keybed so don't take away from the cleanliness of the control panel (one is pictured). The tolex on the case is original and in very good condition - again, excellent considering its age.

Overall - This synth was never abused. It spent most of its life in the home of a musician - it was never toured.

The original tolexed hard cover and removable music stand are included - the stand attaches to the inside of the lid. I do not have the original legs. The CS-60 gets you most of the CS-80 sound at a fraction of the cost. The aftertouch truly adds to the expressiveness of the synth."
