The S900 still sounds pretty darn good...

I believe you posted this one a while back...great sax at around 2:08.

I hope the sax we heard on the BK-5 isn't the only (or the best!) one....surely there must be more.

Glyn Madden,

Perhaps the best Yamaha man to-date, one hell of a nice guy, didn't pull faces like Martin Harris, hope he's taking it easy now. I have watch him play all the yamaha range the old US1 organ it was some tool heavy as hell, real wood dance2

In the right hands an old KB will do wonders:

I almost forgot about that one, Tony...fantastic arrangement, video work, and, of course, the terrific playing.

Yes, the S910 is a chunk more money...but, you get the 16-track sequencer, AND the Audio to USB recorder (Wav), as well as excellent mega-voiced styles, SA sounds, tons of styles available, easy style editing...quite a bargain when you think of it!

It was my close second choice to the Tyros4...this video reminds me again why I was so impressed.

I know I am like a broken record but I wish Yamaha would give some info regarding the "S950". With George hearing rumours of a release before the Summer NAMM show surely it would be beneficial for Yamaha to release some concrete info now in the face of a more than decent, and cheaper, new keyboard from Roland.

I know I would be quite happy with a S910 but I don't want to purchase a new one new with a new version only around the corner and while the BK5 has tweaked my interest I have a feeling I could regret buying new to then hear that Yamaha are releasing a stupendously good keyboard around the 1500 mark.

Basically Yamaha aren't making it easy for me!! laugh

PS: The vid of Lord of the Dance using the S910 is excellent.

Ian why are you so defensive when we talk about T4.I never said it's a bad instrument.It's a great instrument.I am just being objective.It lacks a lot of things 4k instrument should always have,whether you use it or not.Some will use it and some will not .
And I agree that 910 is great for the money.Too bad it's has no sampler.950 will fix that,I guess.
If we don't complain about these things Yamaha and the other guys will never improve them.They will still repack T3 into T4 and tell us this is the best there is, because we don't know better.
And about Joost and Telmo.It has nothing to do whether they play T4 or T7 or whatever.They will still sound good, because they are great musicians and it doesn't matter which one they play.
Remember it's just a tool,it has no feelings.We can talk bad about it with arguments it will not get hurt. smile

I'm not at all defensive about Tyros4...I'm just telling you how much I appreciate such a fantastic instrument, and how satisfied I am with the features it has...it wasn't designed for all arranger players, just a certain market, and it obviously is very successful as it allegedly has outsold both Tyros2 and Tyros3 combined.

I think the BK-5 is a marvellous instrument for the money, and sounds, to my ears, even better than Roland's own G-70 and E-80...that is an acheivement in itself.

It is too bad it has no on-board midi sequencer, something that is unforgivable with today's instruments. Even low end Casio have midi recorders.

But like anything else, I'm sure people will find workarounds, if they want the instrument enough.

And mirza, I completely agree about complaining and having improvements. We clinicians report what we get from the public at our clinics, and, I'm sure Yamaha looks in on the major forums to see what's up.

As for what actually gets on the next model...your guess is as good as mine?
