Yamaha SY99 in good working order

Unread post by GordonM » Fri Oct 26, 2018 8:37 pm

I’m selling my Yamaha SY99. I bought it from new about 27 years ago and it has never failed me. It had some light gigging in it’s early life but it’s lived in my home studio for many years since. It’s in really good shape - only the back of the plastic end caps have any sign of damage (and even that’s pretty minor).

The internal backup batteries and floppy drive belt have been replaced in the last couple of months so the usual wear-and-tear parts are all as good as new. The LCD is still the original part and it seems to be holding up well. All the keys work. All the front panels buttons work but there are one or two that occasionally need a second press to register.

I've included a few photos below and I'm happy to take more or show some video of it working etc. Just let me know what you want to see.

As well as the keyboard itself, I’ve got all the original manuals, a sound library with over 100 disks and a hard flight-case.

Thanks!

That is a good looking SY99, and with a working backlight! :)
