Yamaha CS50 w/MIDI

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

Came into stock: November 2016.

Restoration Status: KSR to service once sold, and prior to shipping to the new owner.

Remarks: We are delighted to offer this very good condition example Yamaha CS50, which is supplied with its original legs, and has a Kenton MIDI retrofit kit fitted.

The Yamaha CS series polysynths have a beautifully characterful and distinctive sound that we have not ever heard reproduced or replicated in any other vintage synth. The CS50 has essentially the same panel layout and sound engine of that of the CS60 and CS80, including aftertouch (mono). In the right hands, and with some good reverb, this synth can be coaxed to produce some beautiful timbres whilst having a bright and very playful character, and is a wonderful instrument & a superb stepping stone to it’s more powerful siblings – the CS60 and the mighty CS80.

The CS50 has already has a full ‘health-check’ by KSR, so we know the synth to be 100% fully working, but it will have a full service post-sale (see below). The cosmetic condition of the front-panel is excellent, and tolex covering in good shape also. The only item of note is that the power-cable compartment cover has lost its original retaining catch, so there is a non-original clasp fitted to stop the cover opening (see pictures once supplied).

The CS50 is currently with us in Reading, and available to demo. We can ship this world-wide, so please ask us for a packing & shipping quote, or you are welcome to collect in it person.

As with all Brokered Sales, the synth will be fully serviced post-sale before it’s sent to its new owner. We do this to ensure that the instrument leaves us in perfect operational condition, and it is backed up by our full warranty to give the new owner complete peace of mind. The servicing is carried out as a priority once the the sale has been completed, and although it will delay shipping/delivery by a short time, we know from experience that customers are happy to wait.

This CS50 is sold through RL Music with a 3 month warranty, and operates on EU220V. Also, a user manual (PDF) will be supplied with the synth, and also the original chrome legs.

Price Post-Servicing: £2350 GBP.

Availability: This CS50 with MIDI is now SOLD as at 7th February 2017.
