Unboxing the YDS-150 with Erin Royer

Yamaha’s new YDS-150 has been celebrated by performers, educators, producers, and hobbyists since its release in 2020. We were lucky enough to have Erin Royer unbox and give her first impressions on this unique digital wind instrument.

As a performer, tertiary educator, and repairer, Erin has a unique perspective on the YDS-150.
