Casio CZ-5000 80's Phase Distortion Synthesiser & Sequencer

The CZ-5000 was released in 1985. It has 61 keys and is capable of being split for bass and treble sounds. There is a built-in 8 track sequencer which is great for storing ideas or creating patterns and sequences to edit in real-time. And finally the CZ-5000 has an expanded waveform memory for even more sounds and thicker sounds. It's like having two stacked CZ-1000 synths all at once! Casio's CZ series of phase-distortion digital synths make for a unique sound. After all, there are 8-stage envelopes and 2 oscillators per voice for a thicker tone. Their sound is similar to the Yamaha DX synths but is much easier to program. (Vintage Synth Explorer)

  • This is a used unit.

  • This unit is in great physical condition for something which was released in 1985. It only shows some minor wear from use and age. The face of the synth is really nice!! Most notable wear is that the keys have slightly started to yellow. 

  • This CZ-5000 has been tested and we can confirm it is working as it should. 

  • This unit has a factory internal multi-tap transformer which means this unit can be converted to any worldwide voltage. 

  • At the moment this unit has been set to 240V. This means it is ready to plug and play within Australia. If you purchase from overseas and your mains power is 100-120V you will need to open the unit while it is powered off and unplugged to change the voltage internally to 100-120V. Otherwise you could use a step-up transformer. If you are unsure about this please contact us.

  • This sale is for the unit only. No other parts, accessories or cables are included. This unit uses a standard IEC cable, this cable is not included in the sale.
