Ayup folks, I'm doing a spot of downsizing and letting go of a few bits of kit that I've gripped off eBay over the last couple of years. Everything's in fine working order.

 

Kawai XS1, not the most user-friendly interface in the world but capable of great things in the right hands, as demonstrated here by the mighty Ignacio Marty:

 

Comes with manual but no power supply; any 12V DC charger will do the job. There's an IDM sticker on top, for maximum vibes.

 

£70 and free delivery in the UK; pictured below:

Next up: a Boss DR-Synth DS-330 with power supply and manual. Fun and accessible little MIDI boi from the early '90s; capable of some nicely vaporwavey pads if that's your bag.

 

£60 and free delivery in UK, again pictured below:

And last but not least, the Korg DDD5, a punchy '80s drummo with some classic '80s claps, can pump out some nice kicks too with a touch of compression. Capable of some very classic-era Depeche Mode stuff.

 

No manual with this as I didn't get one when I bought it; comes with a crappy DC power supply that does what you want it to. As you can see from the photos, one line of pixels on the LCD screen has died but it doesn't interfere with reading the info onscreen.

Any queries just let me know! If you're outside the UK get in touch and I'm sure we can arrange something with delivery :)
