Superb synth – powerful, sounds great, accessible/logical controls.

100v model – we may have a 240v version: see our other listings (more voltage info below).

Yamaha CS-15 for sale in exceptional cosmetic condition with only the smallest signs of wear showing towards the edges of the face and on the end panels of the unit. It comes with its original case and Japanese manual. See the detailed photos for more info on cosmetic condition.

Serviced by us – in excellent working order with no known faults.

Perhaps this video demo of it with Tony’s initial reaction to our first CS-15 sums up our thoughts on this instrument:

CS Gas. Right now we have quite a Yamaha family gathering here at Soundgas: the CS-80 and CS-70 arrived from Paris last week, and the CS-60 we sold recently is having its Kenton midi kit fitted before heading out to Berlin. There’s also a 30 en route in the next week or so. The above are such great GAS-inducing beasts that they somewhat overshadow their lesser-numbered siblings. The CS-15 you see and hear here (both oscillators are being triggered by a simple arpeggio) is certainly no slouch. I was quickly inspired to roll up my sleeves and then lost a good hour marvelling at just how big this modestly-proportioned synth can sound. It’s in near mint condition and comes in the original Yamaha flight case. GAS-inducing indeed.

    • 100v Japanese model – we may have a 240v model available – see our other listings.
    • it will run fine on North American mains 115/120v without a transformer (we run all our tests using 120v power); however, a step-down transformer is recommended for extended use.
    • A step-down transformer is required in the UK/EU.
    • We do not recommend using cheap generic Chinese mains transformers and can supply a high quality UK-made unit if required.

    For sales in UK/EU the price will include VAT. VAT-free sales are possible to businesses and individuals in the EU (outside the UK) with a valid VAT Number – please get in touch if you wish to buy this way.
