Yamaha Tyros 3 – The Most Eagerly Awaited Keyboard Of 2008? (UPDATE!)

The countdown has started. In a few weeks time, the new Tyros 3 from Yamaha will be amongst us. But, so far, all we hear about the product itself are speculations, and all Yamaha has given to the public is a puzzle…

Tyros 3...

Tyros 3...

Meanwhile, keyboard enthusiasts wonder what innovations the Tyros 3 will bring, which features it’ll have: Larger, motorised colour screen that can be raised and lowered? Better sounds? Super Articulation 2? USB 2.0? Import and play MP3? Sounds from the Motif XS plus of course many more Styles?

All those rumours have been heard, but no one knows for sure. Yamaha is not releasing any information on the Official Tyros 3 Website just yet…only a puzzle!

A good way to get up-to-date info on the Tyros 3 is contacting Dolphin Music at tyros3@dolphinmusic.co.uk

We can already clarify a few questions about the Tyros 3, which have circulated around the web in recent months. The most obvious, is that it WILL be called Tyros 3, rumours that Tyros 3 will be called a new name were untrue…as shown in the only image released. And, as another piece is added to the puzzle, it seems to our tired eyes that, unlike many people were expecting, the Tyros 3 will have 61 keys, like Tyros 2.

Another 61-keys keyboard? Perhaps...

By the way, you can already listen to 2 very different Tyros 3 samples by clicking on the puzzle. What do you think?

And more – See The Tyros 3 in action, live, before it’s official release!

Dolphin Music will be organising two instore events for those simply too anxious to know more about Tyros 3. The ‘Up Close And Personal’ days will take place on Wednesday 22nd October (Gateshead shop) and Friday 24th October (Huddersfield shop).

At those events, customers will be able to see a demo and have ago on the Tyros 3 – courtesy of Yamaha’s top demonstrator Richard Bowyer, who’ll be giving 1-2-1 lessons on the day. Customers are advised to phone the Dolphin shops to book a slot and avoid disappointment.

CMF UF Series Keyboards with Free USB MIDI Adaptor

The new CME UF Series is really something – The keyboards on the new CME UF Series of MIDI controllers come with a FREE USB Midi adaptor and have great prices, starting at an amazingly low £129!

In 2005, CME released the first of the UF series full-function Master Keyboards, which became an instant classic as the most convenient and cost-effective full-function master keyboard in the world. One year later, CME celebrates this milestone by unveiling the latest and greatest additions to the UF series: the new UF 50, 60, 70, and 80.

Now the durable aluminum case houses even more professional synth concepts. These digital instruments provide all-new circuit design, with the practicality and versatility of a modern master keyboard.

The new CME UF Series keyboards are really outstanding, very well built and, starting at £129, quite a good value, too! You’ll find the CME UF keyboards at Dolphin, view here.

Here’s some really cool exclusive Dolphin Music Hi-Res Photos of the New CME UF Series (click to enlarge):
