Yamaha CS-5 Vintage Analogue Synth

via this auction

"Full size keys, single VCO (square and saw) with PWM and glide, pitch bend, noise, LFO, Resonant VCF (High Pass, Band Pass, Low Pass), VCA and ADSR envelope generator. Also has a sample and hold circuit along with an external in, which are quite unusual for this type of mono synth. Running external gear (guitars sound great) or audio through the filter sounds really good.

External trigger knob has broken off but the control and circuit are still fully functional and easy enough to adjust. This and a few cosmetic blemishes aside, it’s in perfect working order....impressive considering it’s older than me!"
