Yamaha EX5 For Sale - £300 or best offer!

Unread post by Saul » Tue May 29, 2018 10:11 am

Just saw this on Ebay and as that is quite an incredible price I thought I would post it here.

Even £300 for an EX5 is a bargain but the guy is open to offers too? 8O

It's a bargain for someone.

Bidding will probably drive it up although I note that there is no reserve. It does seem to have the SCSI and Individual Output boards fitted, definitely a bonus.

There is no bidding. it's a buy it now or best offer so it's £300 or less :)

It does appear to be an auction (or make an offer). Other thing to note is that it is collection only, seller will not post. It does look in good condition. As such £300 is a good start price. Will be interested to see what it goes for,

Good spot by Jim on the SCSI and additional outputs as I didn’t see those mentioned in the listing, but you can see them in the photo of the rear panel.

Your right of course..I didn't look at it properly. Normally there is no "make an offer" button on an auction listing because of course anyone can make an offer at any time. With a Buy It Now the price is set and it's best offer below that.

At £300 I think it would be a bargain, especially with the extras and I would imagine most people who are interested will sit back and wait until the last moment. That is what I would do anyway. No point bumping the price up beforehand.

Do you also also fancy your chances with an EX5R for £900 (or offer)? 8O

Ha ha...now that guy is an optimist! :)

Still I suppose you never know with these things. Someone, somewhere will be wanting an EX5R and if money is no object then the seller could be lucky.

Would I be right in thinking there are less EX5R's about than the keyboard version?

I think EX5Rs are rarer as they do not come often - I was waiting 18 months for one, so paid £450 mark as it was in very good condition.

The prepal tracking rate for EX5R is about £430. I've said many times before that value is in the eyes of beholder.

Some will find that price a little high, but I was at the point where I wanted one before I could sell my EX5 boards, and I was able to save postage as it was close to where I occasionally work when I have to cross the border to England ;) .

So, in my eyes, it was at the high end of what I was prepared to pay, would have liked to seen it cheaper, but decided to get it whilst it was available. I would have carried on waiting at £900......

Somebody missed a bargain then. Perhaps people are put off by the collection only stance?

I am convinced that my bargain £250 SY99 in 2013 was because it was collection only in Anglesey. Despite, being just “up the coast” from me, that was a long drive. Probably an eight hour round trip, but we made a day out of it. A beautiful early winter day drive in North Wales - wall to wall blue skies and snow capped Snowdonia - and a cracking Lunch in Conway was priceless.

I'm with you Derek. I have travelled some very long distances for keyboards in the past. I think it was a 400 mile round trip for the KORG M3 and probably 350 miles for the SY77 but as you say, make a day of it and luckily Sasha likes long drives so it's good all round. Unfortunately these days I just don't have the expendable income or it's very likely I would have bought that EX5.

Preaching to the choir :) I recall being in a car within an hour of seeing the listing for a 260 mile round trip to snag the Nord G2 Modular and never thought twice. That's when you know you've got bad GAS! I even thought of snagging it as it was not too far for me but then sanity eventually prevailed - I have two again now that I have fixed the one I bought ostensibly for spares (which I will be moving on soon anyway to fuel the GAS fund hint hint) so why on earth buy a third?

It's all part of the fun though isn't it? The long drive, quick test, looking forward to getting home and setting it up. The complete buying experience for the GAS head :)

£300 for an EX5. Makes me weep as they don't come up often and definitely not at that price :( Still someone will be a very happy chap...or lady :)
