10 undervalued 80s synths | Most bang for the buck

video upload by Espen Kraft

Top-10 undervalued vintage 80s synths. With a watchful eye on local ads and garage sales, all of these can be had for way less money compared to a lot of other 80s synths. Some can even be had for coffee money if you're lucky. I've seen it happen many times. Including some of my own buys.

1. Yamaha TX7
2. Casio VZ-10M
3. Elka EK22
4. Roland Alpha Juno 1/2/MKS-50
5. Kawai K1 (k1m/k1r)
6. Sequential Six-Trak
7. Siel Cruise
8. Yamaha SK20
9. Korg Poly-800
10. Commodore 64
