    P250 Stage PianoEver since the P200 was first released over 5 years ago, musical legends like Michael McDonald, Keith Sweat, Tim Carmon (Eric Clapton), Clifford Carter (James Taylor), and Steve Hornbeake (Faith Hill) have used it on stage and in the studio when they needed the absolute best piano sound available. Now Yamaha is proud to announce the next member in the legendary P-series family of professional stage pianos, the new P250. The P250 sets a new standard for sound quality and raises the bar on what to expect in a professional digital piano.

    The P250 features three levels of Yamaha CFIII grand piano stereo samples for dynamic selection according to your touch on the keyboard. The result is a delicacy of tone and expression that emulates the experience of playing a real piano. And to give the P250 an even more richly detailed sound, note off samples, string resonance samples and sound board samples simulate the acoustic interaction between different notes.

    The P250 redefines the features for a professional stage piano including:

    • Graded Hammer, 88-note, weighted-action keyboard for realistic piano feel
    • 128 Notes of polyphony

    Motif Rack


    Perhaps the most requested Yamaha product of the past year has been a rack mount module version of the award-winning Motif synthesizer. We probably could have just scaled the Motif down into a rack version, but we wanted to take Motif technology to the next level. So the new rack is not only affordable, it uses a newly designed sound chip that allowed the engineers to include the most requested new hardware features for Motif. The Motif Rack is perfect for both Motif owners who want to expand the power of their Motif system or those who already have plenty of other keyboards and just want the Motif sounds in a convenient rack mount size.

    MontageTrust your instrument to a name that is synonymous with quality musical instruments. Making a guitar is an art form requiring a high level of sensitivity and deep dedication. Yamaha craftsmen have honed their skills to perfection, and the results are obvious in the guitars they make. There are only a few craftsmen with this level of dedication found worldwide. These same craftsmen also require that only the best care products be used in maintaining their musical masterpieces.

    Yamaha produces a wide array of accessories designed and formulated expressly for the care and longevity of your guitar.


    AES620 GuitarOur new AES620 is an emotional rock machine of the highest magnitude. Sporting a carved, highly figured Maple top, this handsome set-neck instrument speaks through a Seymour Duncan JB™ bridge pickup and a custom humbucker in the neck position. Separate volume controls for front and rear pickups, a master tone control, and a three-way toggle selector get you from power chords to solo in no time. The smooth Nato/Rosewood neck feels like an extension of your arm. Rich new colors include Faded Burst, Translucent Dark Red, and Royal Blue. AES620 - If you rock, your vehicle is ready.



    The new five-piece Maple Custom, Birch Custom and Beech Custom Absolute drums have added some great features. All snare drums and toms feature light weight yet rigid aluminum die-cast hoops which provide very focused sound, longer sustain and more consistent tuning. Bass drums now feature a new spur with a larger diameter leg and die-cast claw hooks with tension rod inserts that make changing heads easier. Also available with a "Nouveau" lug casing. This lug allows for a quick change in drum heads and does not contact the shell except for a single bolt at the nodal point. A selection of over 30 custom colors and eleven core colors are now available, giving drummers more finish options than ever before.


    MushashiRecently, the Yamaha Oak Custom kit surprised the drumming community with its unusual material and the unique combination of stunning appearance, innovative construction, and exceptional sonic qualities. Yamaha continues to explore the possibilities of Oak with the introduction of the Musashi snare drum line.

    The NSD-1365M and the NSD-1260M are professional, small-diameter snare drums that can be used as main or effect snares. Their shells are constructed of 6-ply, 100% Oak, a material known for its brilliant grain and unsurpassed strength and durability. Named for the legendary 16th-century samurai, Miyamoto Musashi, both models evoke the spirit of a warrior's weapon with an aggressive look and a distinctive, bright, and remarkably loud sound that's ideal for live performances.

    Both models come sheathed in a gloss black Oak finish. The NSD-1365M features a 13" x 61/2" shell, while the NSD-1260M incorporates a slightly smaller 12" x 6" shell but adds a black-stained Groove-Wedge. The deeper shells make these drums extremely versatile, while the hard Oak frame gives them an intensive attack worthy of a samurai.


    Signature Series bags are all custom designed to fit the needs of specific instruments. However, all Signature Series bags were designed with three important things in mind: Protection, Portability, and Price. Thick foam padding, bottom, back and side vinyl reinforcements, and corner guards shield the instrument from damage. Padded "Hands Free Towing" shoulder strap, 2 rivet-reinforced handles and tough inset wheels allow for easy transport. Pleated exterior pockets, mesh interior pockets, and dual self-repairing custom zipper pulls create an unbelievable package at an incredibly affordable price.
