The Yamaha SY-1 seems limited due its only having 28 presets, but it has a lot more control than you would think which allows the sounds to be shaped quite easily. I bought this synth back in the late 90s and it's been safely stored for the last decade or so. The synth sounded a little wobbly when I tested it last week so I opened it up and gave it a nice cleaning and it was quickly back to normal. The Cutoff Frequency slider sounded good but was a bit rough to move so I cleaned that out too and now it slides well again. The synth is boxed up and ready to ship and is safely wrapped in large bubble wrap with kaizen foam on each end to protect the sides. For the box itself I took a 48x16x16 box and cut it down so it would fit this synth exactly. I spent an hour or two packing it so I'm fully confident that this synth will be safe during shipping. Known Flaws: Electrical or Functional Flaws: There are no further electrical or functional flaws that I am aware of. Cosmetic Flaws: Some chipping of paint around top edges. Top left corner is the most visible. Due to the age of this synthesizer it is being sold AS IS and while it was working perfectly for me last weekend and I did everything I could to ensure safe delivery there is always the possibility that the change in temperature or humidity or electrical conditions during transit or wherever the purchaser lives could affect the synth. It's unlikely but possible. I've been extremely open about the condition of the synth and want both myself and the buyer to be happy once the synth has been delivered. This synth holds a special place in history as it was Yamaha's very first synthesizer and its "touch control" (nowadays its generally refered to as "velocity sensitivity") was groundbreaking for the day. This synth is also interesting in that it has an adustable voltage supply so it's capable of running on 110V, 130V, 220V, or 240V with a simple twist of a rotary switch on the back panel. 37 key (velocity sensitive) Monophonic analog synthesizer 28 presets Attack Bend (Pitch and Tone toggles) Touch Sensitivity control Portamento - toggles for preset or controllable Pulse Width - toggles for preset or controllable Vibrato - toggles for preset or controllable Envelope - toggles for preset or controllable Filter - toggles for preset or controllable Specifications Polyphony - Monophonic Oscillators - 1 VCO Filter - Low pass resonant analog filter LFO - 1 LFO for Vibrato or Wah-Wah VCA - Attack, Sustain Memory - 28 presets: Clarinet, Flute, Bassoon, French Horn, Bass Clarient, English Horn, Trombone, Trumpet, Saxophone, Oboe, Pizz Violin, Guitar, Hawaiian Guitar, Pizz Bass, Sousaphone, Wah Guitar, Bow Violin, Piano, Harpsichord, Contrabass, Tuba, Bass Guitar, Pulsar, Growlpet, Reed, Funny, Trumute, Double.
