"I love the feel and sound of my new Yamaha CPX - the new pickup system creates a perfect balance for live performance. It's why I choose to play Yamaha guitars."

"I can go to any type of gig knowing I have the best sounds on the planet in one keyboard. The MOTIF ES is my dream machine, whether it be a country gig or full-on rock gig. Even in my studio, this synth gives me the professional sounds I need. The factory presets are great and the support from Motifator keep this synth way ahead of other brands."

“I've played most hire kits in this country and nothing comes close to Yamaha. The consistency and reliability gets my mind off the drums and puts me into the moment with the musicians/audience where the magic can happen.”
- Vaughan Jones
"No matter where I am, from home,or a club gig, or a stadium. I can always count on my Yamaha S90es for amazing playability, world class sounds and portability. I wouldn't hit the stage with any other instrument!"

"Even when I’m doing the worst gig, in the worst club, in the worst town, my Yamaha Drums always take me to my happy place."
- Dave Sanders
“From experience, Yamaha are the most reliable and consistent drums I have found. I still use the first Yamaha recording custom kit that I bought over 15 years ago. I use a bunch of different size drums from both the Maple Custom and Recording custom. I have used Yamaha drums all over the world, their consistency has never let me down and their hardware is simple, strong and doesn’t rattle!”

“The SRT pickup system gives the warmth, clarity, response and projection that was missing from my previous piezo only set up. The absolute authentic sound reproduction and resonance of an acoustic guitar is what makes SRT great for professional live use! It responds fantastically to your attack on the strings. I basically need less effects and EQ to get 'my sound'. This system is definitely the leader of the pack.”
