The Yamaha YC88 Digital Stage Piano is a modern stage keyboard with vintage qualities. It’s Yamaha’s first keyboard with drawbars, and it meticulously emulates the unique circuitry and playing feel of popular drawbar controls. This digital organ combines authentic performance with high-quality organ and piano modeling for the stage. The YC88 features a natural wood hammer-action keybed for a fluid playing experience, and it provides a range of other authentic sounds, including concert grand and electric pianos, at the fingertips of the performer.
The YC88 relies on a newly designed sound engine that utilizes Virtual Circuitry Modelling (VCM) technology. This technology expertly captures and recreates the behavior of transformers and resistors in tonewheel and drawbar circuits, ensuring authenticity in sound.
With nine drawbars, the YC88 provides an expressive playing platform, including a newly designed 88-key waterfall keyboard. The drawbars also offer haptic feedback and LED indicators for visual feedback on drawbar position and active instrument setup.
In addition to its organ capabilities, the YC88 also offers a range of authentic piano and synthesizer sounds. It includes two premium Yamaha concert grand piano settings and a range of electric pianos that feature classic FM synthesis. The controls of the YC88 are designed for live performance and feature easy access parameters for quick switching and editing.
The Yamaha YC88 comes complete with an FC3A foot pedal for added expression, and a soft case with built-in wheels for easy transportation. The soft case protects the instrument when on the road and features two carry handles, backstraps, a cushioned interior, and a robust exterior material.
With its combination of detailed organ, piano, and synthesizer sounds, lightweight design, and intuitive controls, the Yamaha YC88 is the perfect stage keyboard for demanding organ and keyboard players.
