Korg Poly-800 Vintage Keyboard Synthesiser

The Poly-800 was released by Korg in 1983. It is an Analogue synthesiser however is digitally controlled. The Poly-800 is fully programmable synthesiser featuring 49 keys, two buttons for data entry, and a joystick controller, which modulates the DCO pitch or the VCF. It has 8-voice polyphony with one DCO per voice. It can also be switched into double mode which stacks two DCOs for a fuller sound, but reduces the polyphony to 4 voices.

  • This is a used unit

  • Cosmetically the unit is in great condition for its age! It shows some small, general signs of use and age like some marks, nicks and scratches. There are some small sections where the finish has rubbed off. Nothing major. Please see all photos. 

  • This unit is an early model which does not have an internal memory battery. This unit uses 6 x C batteries to hold memory and patches. This unit will be shipped with 6 x C batteries and the factory patches loaded for the convenience of its new owner. Although the unit can be powered off the C batteries it is recommended that you use it with the suppled power supply so they keep their charge to hold the patch memory. 

  • This unit uses a a 9V negative centre power adaptor. A generic power supply will be included for AU buyers only.
