Yamaha DX7IIFD For Sale. Fully serviced and tested by professionals and working great.
We sold this unit to a customer over a decade ago and recently bought it back. It was working fine when we got it, but we want our items to outlast everyone else's, so we replaced all tact switches with new ones so they'd activate with minimal pressure. We replaced the battery so its next owner shouldn't have to worry about doing so for a long long time, and lubed all slide pots for perfect smooth operation. The result is a DX7iiFD that's working perfectly and is better than the rest. This unit is being sold by professional vintage synth perfectionists with nearly 3 decades in the business and will be packed safely to withstand rough handling.
Here's a video of this dx7iifd in action:
You all know the classic Yamaha DX7, the most well known digital synth ever. World famous for the beautiful synthetic sounds generated by its FM synth engine. There's hardly an 80's synthpop band that didn't use one (or several)! This is the latest, best sounding and most advanced of the DX7 series released by Yamaha. It's got improved audio outs over the original DX-7 so sounds a lot better, an improved user interface and look, offers split and layer capability so you can play 2 sounds at once and, in addition to the cartridge port, this model has a 3.5" floppy drive where you can store banks of sounds to readily available / cheap floppy disks.
The DX-7 IIfd is well suited for a variety of musical styles. It's capable of reproducing the classic DX7 "Full Tines" lounge piano sound. If you're into techno sounds or ambient music, many of the distinctively digital sounds which can be programmed into this keyboard will separate your music from the currently trendy analog sound. And of course, if you're an 80's synthpop fan, this is the keyboard for you - there's hardly an 80's synth group that didnt use the same sounds you'll have access to if you buy this synth. Here's a brief list: Vince Clarke of Erasure, A-Ha, Depeche Mode, Tony Banks of Genesis, Karl Bartos of Kraftwerk, Level 42, Cabaret-Voltaire, Dead or Alive, Coil, The Cure, Stock Aitken and Waterman, D:Ream, Brian Eno, Howard Jones, Enya, Front 242, Herbie Handcock, Kitaro, Petshop Boys, Nine Inch Nails, Talking Heads, U2, Underworld, Stevie Wonder, Vangelis. Whether you're trying to recreate classic sounds of the 80's or 90's or looking to make fresh new sounds, this synth should provide some great inspiration.
