Listing description: "Here is a chance to get the rarest polyphonic synthesizer ever. I have never seen a nicer and cleaner Yamaha CS 80. This one has been completely repaired, cleaned, polished and reassembled!!! It has amazing features like eight voice polyphony, patch memory and polyphonic aftertouch. It can create great analog strings, horns, drones and pads with that instantly recognizable classic polysynth sound. No synthesizer sounds better. Some examples of its extremely fat sound can be heard in "Billy Jean" by Michael Jackson, "Blade Runner", "Mutiny on the Bounty" by Vangelis and in "Dune" by Toto. What made this synthesizer sound so powerful was its "natural" detuning.... so that its brass and string sounds were not only unparalleled in authenticity, but also in pure width! With two analog oscillators per voice, the CS-80 has the potential for some really thick sounds! A great VCF (filter) with independent high-pass and low-pass resonant filters, a powerful ring modulator, and a variety of modulation controls further expand the CS-80's sonic potential. There are 22 preset sounds (6 users) that can be selected with bright and shiny colored buttons above the keyboard. The keyboard is weighted and has a full 61 keys with performance controls for vibrato, pitch, brightness and volume. This synthesizer is truly museum quality!

What you get in this package:

1x Yamaha CS80 (completely repaired and rebuilt)

1x Solid custom hardcase

1x Foot pedal

1x Massive synthesizer stand

1x User manual

1x Service Manual

1x Stereo audio cable

1x original warranty card

1x leather bag for the foot pedal

1x Tons of extra CS80 motherboards, eproms, switches, faders, knobs etc.....

1x original Yamaha CS80 leather bag

what you buy is really an investment. Prices are going to go up unstoppable.

If you own this monster, consider yourself really lucky!"
