For your consideration is a Yamaha FX-1. This polyphonic FM synthesizer is one of the rarest, most complex, and most expensive synthesizers ever built. Yamaha's flagship FM synthesizer/organ son of the analog GX-1/EX-1 couple, and father to the DX-1, this beautiful instrument packs all the sonic possibilities of a standard organ and polyphonic synthesizer into one gigantic and unique package. The features of this synthesizer are much too extensive to list here.

When released in 1983-4, the FX-1 had a $43,600 price tag (compared to the DX-1, which was released in 1984 with a $10,900 price tag). That's $102,000 today when adjusted for inflation. It is the second most expensive synth that Yamaha ever made. Don't miss your chance to get this extremely rare and incredible-sounding synthesizer for much, much less! It is rumored that less than 100 of these were built.

The bass pedals, bench, and the two extremely rare and gorgeous-sounding (2) Yamaha TX-1 tone cabinets that originally came with this unit are also included.

This synth is in excellent cosmetic condition. It synth received a few scratches and nicks on the back corner when it was recently moved to our new commercial location, but it essentially looks the same as it does in the pictures. All the knobs and sliders that we have tested work perfectly, and we have tested virtually all of the buttons, sliders, knobs, and other function on this synthesizer.
