Inside NAMM 2019 | Yamaha

Yamaha introduced the sonogenic keytar for those that want to jump into playing keytar with a sleek and comfortable build and excellent tools to help you learn how to play and unlock all of its, cool nuanced features!

Classical guitar has been around for hundreds of years and has been more or less the same since its inception. Yamaha has changed the game with classical guitar thanks to the CG TransAcoustic series! Now you can expand your sound by adding beautiful effects to your classical guitar! Add some chorus or reverb to your guitar that are produced naturally within the instrument; no additional cables or speakers needed!

All your favorite aspects of the YDP-163 are back with the new YDP-164! It takes everything you love about the previous keyboard and now includes the CFX 9-foot Concert Grand sound! Although it’s an electronic keyboard, anyone with their eyes closed will think it’s acoustic thanks to the GH3 action and new, synthetic keys. Essentially, that means the lower keys will be heavier and the higher keys will be lighter, as well as the texture of the keys feeling more like an acoustic piano. Going from a large grand piano to the YDP-164 will be seamless, both with feel and sound. If you have an iOS device, download the free the Smart Pianist Compatibility app to unlock the ability to play different pianos in different environments to get the desired piano sound and ambiance you’re looking for!
