DX5 Playing P. Lion "Happy Children"


video upload by DX5

"One of the finest italo dance songs ever. There are some variations intentionally done (i.e: the sequence starting at 00:36 or the second bar on the main riff (01:00, 01:08, 01:50, 01:59 etc) acting as watermark :-).

Yamaha DX5 FM synthesizer + 3 ROM & Xtras “Collector’s Grade” SN 1001

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.


via this auction

"Very early serial number #1001! Maybe the first one made???any experts here. I’ve done some research on how Yamaha stamped their synths back in the 80s…so far no luck. Did they start with 0001 or 1001? [a few have been captured here, all start with 1 or 2]

Up for bid is the 1985 Yamaha DX5 in excellent condition. Close to “near mint” condition and probably one of the cleanest that you can find. This comes with the original receipt from the first owner who bought it in 10-5-1985 for $2889!

Unit shows just a few small nicks on the side panels and scratches in the bottom as seen in the photos. Other than that this is in amazing condition. Fully functional, tested and works as designed. All controls works!

It includes:
Original detachable music sheet stand
Sustain pedal
Manual
XLR cable
3 ROM cartridges
Orig power cord"

Yamaha DX5 1985 Stage Used by Oingo Boingo "Live at The Ritz"?

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated. Oingo Boingo Live At The Ritz 1985, NOT 1987 (Reupload) [Best Quality]

video upload by sombody

Anyone spot the DX5 in the video above? I'm not seeing the telltale wood side panels unless the lighting is just off. That is a Yamaha on the stand to the right of the Sequential Circuits Prophet 2000. Amazing band live. I used to see them at Magic Mountain back in the day. Them and Sparks seemed to perform there multiple times every year.

"Lucky to have found this one after the first upload mysteriously disappeared. Contrary to popular belief, this show is from 1985 and not 1987. At the start of Weird Science, Danny says "here's a song we did for a movie this year". Weird Science was released in 1985. There is some evidence that other songs such as "Gratitude" were performed here but any video footage of it has been lost, so it isn't here.

Tracklist:
00:00 - Dead Man's Party
6:13 - Who Do You Want To Be
9:31 - Just Another Day
14:35 - Grey Matter
20:00 - Stay
23:26 - Weird Science
28:10 - Goodbye, Goodbye"


via this auction

"An amazing synth with a cool history! This DX5 was apart of Oingo Boingo's touring rig during the 'Dead Man's Party' era. As seen being played by Michael Bacich in various live performances most notably 'Live at the Ritz'. The gentleman I bought this from purchased it around 1989 from a used shop in L.A.. He played it for a couple of years, then threw it under his bed for about 20 years. I purchased it in 2016 and have lovingly cared for it since.
There are some various scratches and dings throughout the keyboard and a couple of dips in the wood, but overall is in great shape for the age and touring history. Road case is heavy and will cost a bit to ship.

Recent upgrades and maintenance work includes:

-Removing each key and soaking in soapy water
-Replaced upper and lower key felts
-Replaced all electrolytic capacitors in PSU
-Replaced 2 tantalum caps in CPU board
-Replaced CPU battery
-Realigned after touch sensor
-Adjusted after touch trim pots
-Installed new OS EPROM, removed/added jumpers for one IC operation (originally used 2 ICs)
-De-soldered both ribbon connectors from original display, and soldered to new OLED display
-Installed new display"

"This is an incredible keyboard from the 80's. The YAMAHA DX5, like 2 DX7 in one and little more. Built like a tank."
