Yamaha CS-15 Vintage Analog Duophonic Synthesizer (with original hard case) in absolutely MINT condition.

Despite being built around 1981-82, this particular unit has been seldom used if at all, but rather stored and very well preserved in exceptional conditions. There is NOT the slightest signal of usage, scratch or rust trace at all. Paint looks gorgeus, pots and sliders work flawlessly, all metallic parts are clean and shiny, keyboard looks like new, and all plastic, wooden case, screws, hex nuts and electronic parts are as if it had recently left the factory (just in case you wonder, ALL parts and components are original, nothing has been replaced). It is in such a state that IT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND! 

Needless to say it is exceptionally rare to find a unit in this "like new" condition for a synth this age. I added a TON of pictures so you can check for yourself, but can provide even more detailed pics/video on request.

This very underrated synth from the late 70's is without doubt the most interesting one of the Vintage Yamaha CS lineage (leave aside their older brothers CS-50/60/80). It has a unique architecture with two complete analog signal paths which you can program independently, like having two synthesizers in one (bitimbral mode), or intertwin both paths with complex routing options for an incredibly rich sound you cannot achieve with other analog monosynths. You can also control both voices independently using CV/gate inputs. Plenty of videos on YouTube if you wanna check it out.

It has been calibrated, tested and of course everything works perfectly, including the dual CV/gate inputs. I'd usually have the power transformer rebuilt to 230V, but in this case I decided to keep it 100% original.

S/N #6964, tuned and calibrated on June 2022
Will pack it boombproof and ship only via UPS.
Customs fees, local taxes and other charges are buyer's responsibility and are not included.
