Yamaha Adds to Line of Instruments Geared Toward Learning and Fun

EZ Trumpet with Lighted Valves, Built-In Lessons and Realistic Sounds;
Vintage Electric Surf Guitars; and New Series of Affordable Portable Keyboards

LAS VEGAS–Yamaha Corporation of America, Consumer Products Division, will debut several new consumer instruments at CES 2005, including the EZ Trumpet, an electronic light-up teaching instrument; a line of vintage surf guitars resurrected from the 1960s fun-in-the-sun era; and the two new affordable keyboards packed with features, demos and lessons for beginners.
The EZ Trumpet expands Yamaha’s successful EZ line of portable keyboards and guitars that teach users how to play by following lit keys and chords that show where to place their fingers. The trumpet offers three selectable play modes that assist in learning how to play the instrument. Lights around the valves show correct trumpet fingering so that users can play any of the 10 built-in songs. The onboard selection of songs can be expanded via the Internet; users can download songs into the EZ-TP’s Flash ROM by connecting to a computer through its USB connections. The EZ Trumpet features 22 different instrument sounds, including digitally several sampled trumpets and other wind instrument sounds. The instrument has adjustable volume, tempo, balance, voice matching and key change controls.

The newly designed, budget-conscious YPT-200 ($99) and YPT-300 ($249) 61-key portable keyboards replace the PSR175 and PSR275, and offer improved sound quality, MIDI IN/OUT connections, 102 preset songs, the Yamaha Education Suite 5 (Y.E.S. 5) built-in teaching system and more power than competitive products in the same price range. Y.E.S.5 contains more than 100 songs that help users learn by teaching note reading and chords in seven steps. In addition, the YPT-300 offers the ability to record songs on its internal Flash ROM, a backlit LED, more than 480 voices including 359 high quality XGLite MIDI voices, 12 drum kits and a sound effects kit.
Yamaha’s new line of vintage surf guitars is a throwback to the 1960s, when rock-n-roll took control of Americas beaches. Yamaha’s original surf guitars, the SG series, were released in 1966. In response to the growing demand for a unique style of affordable guitar, Yamaha has decided to a new version of the 22-fret surf guitars combined with great-sounding pickups and a vintage style tremoro system in Ocean Blue, Candy Apple Red, Racing Car Green, and Chrome Yellow. Yamaha is also offering five other new guitar models in several unique finishes.
All of Yamaha’s new offerings can be seen during the CES 2005 show at Yamaha’s booth (#9847) in the center hall, Las Vegas Convention Center, beginning January 6.
