“You are bidding on a used Yamahe TX81Z fm tone generator. I’ve owned this since brand new 20 years ago. It’s been sitting in my personal studio closet as a back up for years along with a lot of other gear that I have to get rid of retiring and moving. It’s got scuffs and scrapes but is tested and works great. Pictures are of the actual item.” Link
“This TX81Z is in great condition with some light cosmetic wear. Functionally this synth is amazing, there are some scratches on the top and bottom of the unit but the faceplate is in great shape. These flaws are common with a synth that has been around for nearly 30 years. Don’t be fooled by the age though, this synth is built to last.
I am selling because I haven’t been using it as much in my studio and would prefer to invest the money elsewhere.” Link
“Unit purchased from estate sale and removed from project studio. Tested OK for power up. No further testing done. No returns sold as is… No cables.” Link
This synth has a very similar sound to a DX7 in that it uses FM to create sounds. It is really good for bells, chimes, and lots of sparkly late 80s sounds. This one was used alot in early 90s dance music, especially the preset “Lately Bass”.
I have only used this one for the built in preset sounds. It needs a new internal battery, so if you edit your sounds, they’ll be lost when you power off/on. This hasn’t bothered me because it’s actually nearly impossible to program the thing. I have replaced batteries in my other synths just never spent the time on this one. The only other issue it has is the output jacks work better with some cables than others. You sort of need to get the cable in just the right spot for it to work.” Link
“Yamaha TX81Z excellent condition, has some scuffs due to it’s age but overall it looks good cosmetically. Everything is in working order on this unit. ” Link
“This is a yamaha tx81z test every button works fine comes with original manual and am not a expert so say that sell as is thank you ” Link
“Classic 4 operator FM synth that remains popular and powerful to this day. Famous for its tough sounds, particularly the “Lately Bass” preset patch. Tons of sysex files and several editors for this machine are available online. When sequenced with an external sequencer or DAW, the TX81z is capable of 8 part multi-timbral performance (separate sounds responding on separate MIDI channels). With the array of available sounds (including drums), this module can easily be used this way to perform entire songs and compositions.” Link

Please review the pictures for the condition and features. It is working perfectly and sounds amazing.” Link
“Here is a working Yamaha Tx81z with 1.6 firmware for all your Lately Bass needs. I work as a sound designer, and used this synth to create a certain very popular Deep House library. I left a lot of my custom bass patches on the synth, so this could be a real gem for deep house/house heads.” Link

I am updating my studio, as I wish to work in a ‘different’ way; therefore I am selling off much of my hardware, which now rarely gets used. The TX81Z may be ‘dated’, but it produces some amazing basses and of course original retro 80s synth sounds.
Included is the original Owner’s Manual, and original Yamaha Brochure.” Link

“The project was completed a year ago, and I no longer have any use for it, as I’m not into programming or sequence recording. I fired it up, tested out several of the presets, all of which sounded as they were supposed to, and it will come with the original Yamaha Owners Manual, which I might add is one of the more “user friendly” ones I’ve come across. I’m selling without any reserve, as that is how I purchased it.” Link

“This listing is for a Yamaha TX81Z Tone Generator with the Owner’s Manual (in used condition with some soiling of the front page, and some pencil markings here and there on inside pages). Listing this for a friend. There are a few small scratches/scuffs on the case. Also, top left corner mounting hole is slightly distorted. In the play single mode, there does not appear to be and sound coming from the C19 setting. I recently sold my TX81Z and it had the same situation with C19. I tested this unit using a Yamaha PSS-480 keyboard, with a four octave keyboard. With the TX81Z set in the Perform mode, a few of the settings either produce sounds on the lower part of the keyboard, or do not produce sounds. This may be due to some of the settings having been set up to work with a keyboard controller with split keyboard capabilities, which my PSS-480 does not have.” Link
