Yamaha KX1

"This is a super-rare 1980's red Yamaha KX1 keytar. The item has some scratches on the bodywork (see photo) and one of the keys is slightly lower than all the others (see photo) but it works perfectly.

It comes in a hard case with a power-supply, lead and shoulder strap.

This Keytar is a MIDI controller, so does not have any in-built sounds, but can be used via MIDI to control other MIDI keyboards/synths etc.

Made in Japan. One of only 1000 made. " eBay Link

Yamaha KX1

"The KX1 is a Japanese made, very rare ( yeah, I know, everything for sale on Ebay is either unique or rare, but this unit is one of only a thousand made) 44-note remote MIDI controller with velocity and aftertouch sensitivity. FULL size keys, not toy piano sized as found on the KX5, Yamaha's replacement instrument unit for the KX1. The ribbon controller is used to modify pitch and mod effects. Unison, sustain, and portamento buttons and a breath controller input are all there. THIS UNIT WORKS PERFECTLY!

Up to 64 patches can be accessed via 8 buttons, 4 bank buttons. This instrument represented a watershed moment in synths. Herbie Hancock's personal KX1 now resides at the Smithsonian. The cream colored casing is made from wood, not petroleum. Cosmetically the condition is 9.5 out of 10. This particular unit was used on recordings made by the cult band Ellis Island out of Boston.

And if that's not enough, you can get up and dance with it! Try that with a baby grand" eBay Link

Yamaha KX1

"Rare Yamaha KX1 Midi Controller Keytar/ Keyboard. I believe it was made in 1983. From the literature it precedes the KX5 and is heavier burt has about the same functionality. It has a guitar-style shaped neck. Switches for Portamento and Sustain, Mod. Wheel, Port.Wheel and Vol. Wheel. There is an input at the base of the neck for a Breath Controller. There is also a Pitch-Bend Ribbon Controller.

It comes with a hardshell flight case as pictured." eBay Link
