Yamaha CS50 Synthesiser For Sale

Yamaha CS50 Analogue 4 Note Polyphonic Synthesiser For Sale

 

 

 

The Yamaha CS50 was one of the first polyphonic synthesisers on the market in the late 1970's and looks like a scaled-down version of the monstrous CS-80, and it is! This will benefit those who crave the famous classic Yamaha synth sound without the struggle of lugging around the 215 pound CS-80! The CS-50 weighs in at about 100 pounds. The CS-50 is also just 4-voice polyphonic and just a 49-note standard keyboard. It does feature pressure (aftertouch) sensitivity route-able to several destinations, however.

There are 13 preset sounds of various instruments and synth sounds and was used in the day by Men Without Hats and Herbie Hancock.

 

 

 

I have owned the Yamaha CS50 since around 1977 & it has not been used for around 30 years. It is in fully working order & in reasonable condition for its age, although the chrome legs are showing signs of rust. It comes with an instruction manual & is contained in its own flight case (the legs fit into the lid of the case along with the music stand) & there is also foot pedal for volume.

I am looking for reasonable offers for this rare classic instrument.
