Up for sale, a 1980s Yamaha CS-5 vintage monophonic analog synthesizer in excellent condition and in perfect working order. Younger sibling to the CS-10, the CS-5 is a simpler, stripped down iteration, capable of producing quintessential analog bass synth sounds and squishy filtered effects with ease.
Featuring 37 keys with sections for LFO, VCO, VCF, VCA, Mixer, and External audio, the CS-5 is a flexible and intuitive creative soundscape tool. The stepped Feet control has six settings, extending the keyboard range to eight octaves, while the Sample & Hold function allows you to automatically play a continuous note. A perennially popular monophonic wonder, this genuine vintage example offers easy tweakability and signal path visualization, with a warm, bubbly all analog signal path, well suited for looming low end and rich buzzy leads.
Cosmetic wear is limited to light requisite scuffs mostly on the bottom of the enclosure. The graphics are minty, and all of the original knobs are intact.
