Kawai K1 Synthesizer Keyboard Refurbished SN 184788

via this auction

"This K1 has been gone over just this past week.
It has a new battery inserted into a properly installed battery holder for easier future replacement.
The mod stick was serviced for a few cold solder joints, so now it functions fully as data entry and real-time performance mod tool.
Everything was vacuumed out and cleaned. Some surface scratches were buffed out.

Factory patches were re-installed and a few patches were edited to test everything out and to demonstrate what this platform is capable of. Layered performance of a decent string patch with slight de-tunings + panning plus use of the mod stick makes for some rich, swirling textures that are atmospheric gems. Being able to use amplitude mod, along with the omnibus waveforms enables some very interesting rhythmic tools.

It has a few scratches here and there, and the area near the patch select and edit buttons has been polished a bit by years of use. Overall, clean, straight, solid.

It comes with a new 12v power supply."
