Year Released: 1986

I’ve not bought a lot of Yamaha synths over the years. The FM sound really didn’t catch my ears in the early years.
I did buy a FB-01 as I was poor and it was inexpensive, even when they first came out. And the 4-Op FB-01 didn’t help with selling me on the FM sound.
My FB-01 is currently on loan to a friend.
Here it is in 2000 along side a Linn LM-1 DrumComputer and a E-mu Drumulator.
