YAMAHA YC61

The Yamaha YC61 stage keyboard and organ gives gigging keyboardists that iconic organ touch, tone, and real time control in a compact instrument. Yamaha's VCM organ engine provides classic tonewheel organ character by modeling individual components right down to the transistors and resistors, while physical drawbars, a waterfall keyboard, and intuitive controls allow for more jamming with less programming. With a four-zone master keyboard mode, nine effects processors, onboard acoustic and electro-mechanical pianos, DX-derived FM synth and electric piano sounds, strings, brass, and more, the YC61 is the perfect top keyboard for any rig.
