Hi, This weeks pre owned bargain is the Yamaha S970. This keyboard has only just been replaced by the S975 and is in fact very similar to the new model.
The S970 has 61 touch sensitive keys and a large full colour display. There are over 1,500 sounds to choose from as well as the Drawbar organ settings. You can mix two sounds together and also split to have a sound in the left hand.
There are 450 rhythm styles, each has 3 intros, 3 endings and 4 variations. To make it easy to use and quick to set up there is the OTS or One Touch Setting feature, this will set you a sound to go with the rhythm that you have selected, in fact it sets you 4 lots of sounds for the 4 variations, making even the simplest of tunes sound really good. If you only ever used the OTS settings you would still get many years of playing pleasure from the instrument, in fact nearly all of the time that I play I always use OTS.
For the more adventurous you can record your performances or plug in a microphone and sing along to songs, even using the vocal harmony to enhance your voice.
There is an arpeggiator for really cool synth sounds, multi pads, DJ styles and Live controllers.
This keyboard is like a cut down version of the ever popular Tyros 5, but a lot more portable.
Whether you are a novice or a more experienced player this keyboard has something for you, come and see for yourself.
And the price, just £899.
It really is a great keyboard and I highly recommend it.
Hope to see you soon.
