Product Description

Yamaha DX5 for sale.

More than two DX7s in one, and only a polyphonic aftertouch weighted keyboard and better display/interface short of a DX1 (OK, a few other things, but it was very much the affordable version of the Yamaha FM flagship when launched in 1985). The DX5 is surely the DX to own, if you can find a good one...

This one has come to us from the original owner. It's used, but well cared for for sure; anyone who still has the original box for the breath controller loves their instruments!

Comes with:

  • Two Voice ROM cartridges

  • Performance ROM cartridge + Performance Notes

  • BC1 Breath Controller in original pouch and packaging.

  • Original Manual

  • Heavy-duty pro flightcase

Supplied in full working order and with warranty.


  • Dual programmable 6-operator 32-algorithm digital FM tone generators.

  • Independent 8-parameter envelope generator for each operator.

  • 32-voice x 2 internal RAM memory.

  • 64 internal RAM performance memories, each storing a combination of voice and performance functions.

  • Dual cartridge slots for ROM cartridges containing 64 voices or user-programmable 32-voice RAM cartridges. ROM or RAM cartridges storing data for the 64 performance memory locations can also be used.

  • Independent audio outputs for each tone generator channel.

  • Single, Dual, and Split play modes.

  • 76 keys with velocity and after-touch sensitivity.

  • 32-note polyphonic output in SINGLE play mode.

  • Sustain footswitch, portamento footswitch, volume and modulation foot controllers, and breath controller inputs.

  • MIDI IN, OUT and THRU terminals.

  • MIDI send and receive channels independently programmable for each tone generator channel.


Excellent overall. There are some small chips and paint spotting to the end panels, but although it has been a working instrument, it has clearly been well cared for. Please see photos or get in touch if you require more information on condition.
