FINAL $$$!!!

     Here we have a very nice Yamaha DX-100.  It has been checked, serviced, cleaned, and a new memory battery was installed by my tech of 35 years.  It works and sounds superb.  The Synth comes in the hard roadcase and has a power adapter approved by my tech that came with the unit.  Cosmetically quite clean with some light surface mark-smudge above the screen where tape probably was once used.  There is also some velcro on the back and just a few nicks here and there.  The unit has the look of being almost like new.

Keyboard weighs 5 lbs. 

Shipping weight w/ case is 16 lbs.
Shipping box is 28x12x6"

Brick and mortar to the end!

2 summers ago we sold 35 pieces to the movie set of Bill & Teds Most Excellent Adventure 'Face the Music'! with Keanu Reeves.
  Lot's of guitars, amplifiers, rack gear, they wanted a lot of stuff with LOTS of KNOBS!!

We just did another movie bit in a film called 'Miracle in Detroit'
starring Smokey Robinson. Our shop had a 15 minute scene in that movie

The DX100 is a small and portable budget DX synthesizer from Yamaha. Like all DX's it uses (FM) Frequency Modulation synthesis. It's not the easiest form of synthesis to program but can result in some excellent sounds. The DX100 is not as flexible nor powerful as a , but it does have some cool sounds. It is most renowned for its great analog bass sound (Patch #01) that is awesome for techno, house, jungle, and acid music styles; it's very gritty, the bass tone with gristle! However, any other preset sounds that you'll find in the DX100 are pretty bad and require editing for anything else useable.

The DX100 has mini-keys and only 49 of them. No filters, arpeggiators, effects or programmable controllers are available either. Small pitch and mod wheels in the upper left and guitar strap pegs make this synth usable for live use if you're feeling whimsical. If you mess around with the settings on Parameter 13, even if you don't know anything about FM, you can get some seriously twisted sounds out of it. If you're willing to spend a little time with it, it has a lot more potential than just that one bass sound that people will eventually get sick of. And at its currently low street price, it just might be worth getting. It is used by Orbital, Scanner, Jean-Michel Jarre, Autechre, Laurent Garnier, and countless other house and dance artists.
