The LCD backlight is a bit dim, and there is a small amount of rack rash on the top, but other than that its in amazing condition.

The VZ-10M takes a hybrid approach to its sound generation and uses Phase Distortion for ring modulation and waveform generation but true Frequency Modulation Synthesis to generate harmonics. The end result is a unique and hauntingly space-age sounding synthesizer with many smooth "twangy" textures - but it can also be very harsh and noisy when complex phasing is employed. Thumping bass-lines and sweeping pads are its strongest points but it is also very capable of analog-ish brass and strings.
