"Totally rad keytar, works!! But I'm starting this lower than average because it's missing a battery cover (works without it), there's some scratches on it and a small crack on bottom (please look at pix carefully before bidding). Also, for some reason, the #4 button doesn't seem to work, so some of the musical instrument options are not available (again, see pix). That being said, I never really played any of the #4 options, so it never bothered me." eBay Link

"This keyboard is in great condition and comes with it's battery cover, manual, and brand new battery holder. I'm throwing in the Calzone case because I have no more use for it, but it's very floppy. Please consider it more of a bag than a protective case."
The keyboard is in good used condition with a few scratches and scuffs. All keys and functions work. The volume slider is a little noisey when moved. The low G key seems a little off center but still works okay (see photo)
Yes, the battery cover is present." eBay Link
"Turns on and plays fine. Everything sounds good. Has a small hole near the plugs that does not affect playability. No battery cover or strap." eBay Link
"Used. Tested it and it made sounds and the buttons seemed to function. I am no professional so I don't know anything about it. Seemed like the volume knob was a little scratchy, but it went away? It is 20-30 years old, so take that into account. With that said it is very nice and very complete!" eBay Link
These machines on their own are amazing workhorses that sound amazing....
Circuit Bent they are INCREDIBLE!!!
These are bent ala' Rheed Ghazala style with a GetLoFi -style LTC1799 precision oscillator for pitch.
The bends are:
- 8 on/off switches that tap the ROM chip and create viking-style Beserker glitches and synth noise....drones/noise/experimental *BLISS*
- 1 Pot/knob that allows the mixing of the sonics
- 3 Glitch fit on/off switches that send the keytar into harsh sonic excitement
- 1 on/off switch for VIBRATO
- 1 on/off switch for PORTAMENTO
- 1 on/off switch for SUSTAIN
- 6 on/off switches that allow the flow or disruption of data to the FM SYNTH chip allowing for some HEAVILY MUTATED alien world synth sounds.
- 1 on/off switch to the LTC1799 precision oscillator to allow the unit to be 'normally' pitch or turned on to go high or low pitched realms....
- 1 knob for pitch control
- 1 Bright Blue LED for oscillator "ON" notification" eBay Link
