Who's arguing? Were just having a little fun at Yamaha's expense.. Okay, here is my theory as to why the pictures got taken down so quickly. Two words: Steve Deming.

Steve browses around the SZ on a fairly regular basis I would assume, although you could never tell that by his once in a blue moon chime in's where he will actually post and say something. Hi Steve. He saw the thread and then saw the post of the supposed T3 link and immediately got on the horn to his superiors at Yamaha U.S. who then got on the horn to Yamaha Japan. Actually it may not have even gotten as far as Yamaha Japan where Yamaha U.S. simply took care of it themselves. With the threat of a lawsuit and with Yamaha's arsenal of high priced Attorneys the Eastern European site quickly buckled and swiftly took the page down. End of story. Yamaha won the battle and they surrendered.

PS: It may have actually been a 'real' pic of a 'real' T3 but since there has been NO official announcement of the T3 by Yamaha as of yet, Yamaha is just simply trying to cover their own backs and prevent "unauthorized" info of the T3 from getting out before Yamaha's official announcement which is forthcoming, and hopefully very soon I might add.

Best,
Mike

If a pro has a Tyros it would be because of the sounds and features not the 76 keys (as we can see by the ones who use it on this forum). The point about a 76 key Tyros taking away sales from the pro division of Yamaha is not supported. If a �pro�/WS user wanted a Tyros, he/she would have gotten it already because of the sounds whether it is 61 or 76 keys.

Another wrong assumption is that if the Tyros were 76 keys �home� users would not buy it. Why?? With all the discussion, no-one has presented a reason why a home user who has a 61 key Tyros would not buy a 76 key.
Quite the opposite has been demonstrated. Just look at the physical difference between the T1 and T2.
As long as it is not heavier and much longer, as long as it is not much more expensive and as long as it has the superior sounds, styles and OS, a 76 key Tyros would not bother those who have a 61 key Tyros already. After all, a 76 key Tyros would not have anything that would drastically change the Tyros and would not affect the Tyros in a negative way. The only change is that it would have 15 more keys which if they do not want it they can choose to ignore. The same way that the T3 will have a MP3 player they can choose to ignore it.


Apparently Yamaha does not see it that way. They won't be releasing a 76 key version of the Tyros anytime soon.

They are selling 61 keys for the same price as others ar selling 76 key arrangers and far more than other's 61 key fare. They sell everyone of them. I would think a 76 key Tyros would cost far more that $3500 MAP putting the competitors arranger keyboards in play.

I sell the S900's with the P85 for $2200 they have a fully weighted graduated 88 key board
AND the systh/organ keys of the S900. Win Win.

The P85 sells for $600. Its a worthy add for the Tyros as well and very easy to travel with.

King frog I would say its time for a TYROS 3 MODULE now there's a win win......but any keybed controller you want 61/76/88 & get the benefits of T3 technology sounds & styles......problem solved.

I presently use the same setup...S900 and P85, the latter having a terrific 88 note weighted graded hammer action...a lovely little piano.

Weighs around 25 lbs, has MIDI, and even has built in speakers.

How is that a win win. The persons who want just one keyboard to carry on a gig and want the flexability of 76 keys would be at a lost with that set-up.

Donny - agreed! A T2/T3 or S900 module would be the ticket to accompany my 800....what a dream come true.

Zuki just keep talking about a Tyros Module & maybe one of these decades we'll all be surprised After all Ketron, GEM & Roland have taken a shot at it.
