Yamaha TX816 FM Synthesizer Rack SN 3008

via this auction

Additional Tone Tweakers Listings, also on Reverb

"This unit contains 6 TF1 modules. The serial number badge says TX216. Each of these modules contains the synth engine from the original vintage Yamaha DX7.

NOTE: the rightmost module has an intermittent problem that causes the pitch to be randomly modulated. Our tech says this is due to a defective custom Yamaha IC chip that we don't have a source for, so the rightmost module is presently glitchy - sometimes it works fine, but sometimes the pitch goes crazy.

The TF1 modules each had the following preventative work done to them to make this TX rack functionally better than others you may find (apart from the module mentioned above): Battery replaced. Reloaded factory patches to all modules (they each contain the same single set of 32 sounds). All electrolytic capacitors replaced. Properly tested post-servicing and working and sounding great!"
