Yamaha Tyros2 Voted Best Keyboard by England's Music Industry Association
— Flagship Arranger Workstation Wins Another Accolade —
BUENA PARK, Calif. — Yamaha's Tyros2 arranger workstation has been awarded the coveted title of Best Electronic Keyboard at the prestigious 2006 Music Industry Association (MIA) awards ceremony held in October at the Savoy Hotel, London.
The Yamaha Tyros2
The MIA award follows Yamaha's recent sell-out Tyros2 tour in England with internationally renowned keyboardist Peter Baartmans, and is the latest accolade for the Tyros keyboard technology after the original Tyros and Tyros2 models were voted the most powerful keyboards in the world by the international music press.
The Music Industry Association has a wide reaching membership, encompassing all areas of the musical instrument trade in the UK, including retailers, wholesalers and manufacturers. Many of its members are in fierce competition with each other on a day to day basis and due to the diversity of the Association's membership, the award is a true reflection of the popularity, sales success and market leadership of Yamaha Electronic Keyboards.
With a name like a dinosaur, there is nothing prehistoric about the Tyros2 keyboard, which features Yamaha's latest innovation, Super Articulation Technology, the new benchmark in keyboard technology.
The futuristic-looking Tyros2 offers a huge technological leap forward by replicating stunningly realistic instrument sounds and is an easy-to-use musical powerhouse with a host of new features to satisfy and impress both the home player and the most demanding professional.
