Excellent condition, professionally serviced, full working order and sounding great.

See demo of a previous CS-30 below.

Our appreciation for the CS series synths began with the CS80 we had come in as a commission sale some time back, but now we are definitely fans of the whole range. The CS30 represents good value – a great sounding, versatile analogue synth. Top of Yamaha’s original CS range, this is the version with the basic on-board sequencer.

This Yamaha CS30 is for sale in excellent cosmetic condition with small signs of wear showing on the unit, including some paint chips towards the bottom on the front end of the face. The end panels are very clean with minor wear. There is a small chip out of the high C key but this is nothing major. See the detailed photos for more info on cosmetic condition.

Service work: all pots and sliders needed to be deep cleaned to get this synth back to life; power supply has been recapped; calibrated, tuned and tested.

  • 100v Japanese model – 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.
