Yamaha CS60

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

Came into stock: May 2016

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

Remarks: This beautiful vintage synthesizer is in all original condition – all front panel surfaces, wood surround and tolex in very good condition, and showing only expected amounts of wear & tear for a 40 year old instrument. This is a ‘home only’ used instrument, so kept and used in a gentle environment which is clearly reflected in the condition. Also Included in the sale is the original Yamaha Accessories Bag which contains the legs, expression (volume) & sustain pedal (supplied as-is and untested/assembled).

The original owner has owned this CS60 since 1979, and was the first synth they ever owned. As a younger man, he applied some stickers to the synth, some of which you can still see in the photos below. We removed one of the large stickers but there is residue left, so these will need some gentle removal by whomever buys it.

The CS60 is a 8 note polyphonic system with velocity, after-touch and a ribbon controller which offers the player a really organic feel into the performance of the instrument. Other key real-time control facilities, such as the LFO/ring-modulator section really make the CS60 a great players instrument – it’s all about the performance with the big CS polys. 

The resonant qualities of the Yamaha CS series filter are unmatched by any other polysynth, so they sound unique. The CS60 shares the same architecture of the CS80 (including Memories & Ribbon Spring) which is why it offers an excellent way to dial into the CS80 sound potential for an awful lot less money.

This exceptional synthesizer will be fully serviced and calibrated by our tech, and Mr CS80 himself – Kent at KSR, prior to sale. This very good condition CS60 will represent an excellent investment and an everyday useable machine for any musician looking for a unique sound

Runs on EU 220V.

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.

Guide Price Post-Servicing: £3995 GBP.

Availability: This Yamaha CS60 is no longer available for sale – as at 22nd June 2017.
