WOW! 488.00 incl VAT (~700 EUR) what a deal! I can only dream about such price in my country!

Really? Where do you live, George? :wave:

That's about $911 in US dollars. I ordered my YPG-625 for $735, including the survival pack. Not sure if it will include the bench, but I really don't need another bench.

There might be a better UK price. I didn't try to pick the lowest.

Thanks for the pointers. Most interesting.

But why change the product number for different markets? Won't this increase the cost of the product slightly?

They've done it before. Maybe they want to keep the option of making changes in the specs for one model and not the other. Or hey! Maybe a few of the sounds already ARE different. Maybe they figure European horseys have a different gait from American horseys.

Maybe a nickel?

Hi Rick,
I live in Bulgaria, a small country in the South-East Europe, there is only one Yamaha dealer in the country.

I expect the 620 to be priced in the 800-900 EUR range. The funny thing is that one can get a real acoustic upright piano for less than 500 eur (second hand).

Hi George

Thanx for the great review and info as usual. It doesn't surprise me what you are saying about the Chinese instruments. Heck even the Tyros 1 was made in China.

I'm curious what the big name sellers are in Chinese instruments. I'm wondering if it's the names we all recognize or if new ones are emerging that are worthwhile. I suppose it's arranger type keyboards below the $200 mark for them or are there other contenders?

Just curious, I guess you know I used to work in music stores and also owned one in the 70's and 80's in Wisconsin until the northern recession of the early 80's. I said I'd never get back into the music business and found myself in Florida doing that for almost another 20 years in mostly home organs which is very popular in a lot of areas here.

It's just kind of interesting to me to see how the music business has evolved and continues to at what seems to be a faster and faster pace.

Best
Scott

The YPG-625 and 525 are now on the Yamaha's US site. I'm not sure the following link will work, so you might have to navigate from the home page:
http://www.yamaha.com/yamahavgn/CDA/List/ModelSeriesListLE/0,,CTID%253D205200%2526CNTYP%253DPRODUCT,00.html

George, my grandmother used to say she was from Bulgaria. She wasn't -- she just thought it sounded funny. Don't ask me to explain.
