We are selling this wonderful Yamaha VSS-200 sampling keyboard and synth (made in Japan in 1988) in excellent cosmetical condition! 

SERIAL NUMBER: 049390

CONDITION: This gem is the big brother to the famous Yamaha VSS-30! It’s fully working and in excellent cosmetical conditions!

It works with 6 C batteries or 9V compatible power supply (NOT INCLUDED!)

IMPORTANT: This Yamaha VSS-200 works perfectly. The only thing that doesn't work is the integrated microphone because the cable is corroded (please, check the photo of the cable). If you want to sample you can easily use the sample in input of the keyboard. If you want to use also the integrated microphone instead, you will have to replace the cable. For the rest, the keyboard is perfect!

DESCRIPTION: The VSS-200 has 100 voices and a built in sampler that can record a few seconds of sound a play them back with up to four notes at once. You can process the sample with various effects. The Sampler Section is where it gets really gritty and lo-fi. There are basically 3 sources you can sample from:

1. The integrated microphone (ITS CABLE NEED TO BE REPAIRED OR REPLACED)

2. The sample-in where you get the best quality (WORKS PERFECTLY)

3. The "from voice bank" option - this essentially plays a "C" of the currently selected preset and sends it straight to the sample-in

4. The "overwrite" option or in other words: overdubbing.

• Built-in microphone
• 49 keys
• Up to 6 voice polyphony (depending on the mode used
• 100 voice presets

THIS YAMAHA VSS-200 IS FULLY WORKING EXCEPT THE INTEGRATED MICROPHONE AND IN EXCELLENT COSMETICAL CONDITIONS FOR ITS AGE. IT WILL BE PACKAGED IN A PROFESSIONAL WAY (PLEASE, READ OUR FEEDBACK) BUT IN ANY CASE IT WILL BE SOLD AT BUYER'S RISK, WITHOUT WARRANTY AGAINST POSSIBLE DEFECTS DUE TO TRANSPORT: WE CAN'T OFFER ANY REFUND!
