Korg Trident Mk1

We are Brokering this instrument for and on behalf of our UK customer

Came into stock: January 2024.

Servicing Status: 

A service will be carried out by Kent Spong at KSR upon completion of the sale. 


The original Mk1 Korg Trident is a wonderful vintage instrument packed with a load of character, and being SSM technology based, the Synth, Brass and String Machine and packed full of modulation, voicing and timbre controls as well as onboard effects in the form of an absolute killer Flanger and beautiful Ensemble.  Simply…It’s gorgeous!

Being a Korg, the build quality of this early 1980s produced synth was very high, a testament to the fact that it’s still working perfectly with all the original controls working perfectly and all present.

This Trident Mk1 has been in our client’s ownership since brand new, so a single owner machine, and in their own words ‘only ever very lightly used at home,’ which is clearly evident from the pristine condition. .  The operational condition is perfect, so the synth only needs a light service to re-cap the power-supply and put a new battery in, which we will carry out post-sale for the new owner.  

The cosmetic condition is the headline here as it’s genuinely in as-new condition, quite remarkable and without any doubt, the finest example vintage synth we have ever had the pleasure of selling. 

The last thing to note is that the owner had kept the original retail packaging for this beautiful condition instrument, so it’s will be supplied with this to the new owner. If we do end up shipping this to whomever buys it then we would purchase an outer-box to offer some additional protection to the synth and to preserve the OE packaging as that does add to its collectability.

This collectors piece is sold through RL Music with a 3-month warranty. This is a 220~240V machine that is powered via its internally wired power-cable to a uK 3-pin plug. Included in the sale is the original owners manual, which is also in excellent condition and a Korg foot-switch

Packing & Shipping: 

As mentioned above, the Trident requires a service to principally cover any future proofing needs, and a new battery, so this work will add a couple of weeks to the timeline in terms of completing the sale. We will require the sale to have been completed before this will be undertaken.

We can ship this Trident worldwide, although the packing, shipping & insurance costs are not included in the sale price below, so are subject to quotation.  There may be some short delays in getting the packaging materials produced for shipping as they are custom ordered for the specific dimensions of each instrument.  We are happy to discuss your requirements so please email us if you have any questions on the logistics and/or need a quote.

Sales Price: 

£3,990 GBP

Remarks: Korg produced something special when they designed the Mono/Poly, and is still one of the best vintage synths you can buy for your money.

A 4 VCO polysynth with oscillator sync, SSM Chipset Low Pass Filter, built in arpeggiator & assignable sequencer, chord memory and a lot of modulation and external control options – what’s not to love! A sweet sounding vintage synth that packs a punch which we highly recommend to you.
