Top Chap Award

Avery Burdette - Yamaha

Did you see our vintage synth tour over at the Yamaha booth? No? Well watch it, right now!.

NAMM 15 Top ChapIn amongst the massive Yamaha booth that was almost like a mini tradeshow in its own right over at the Marriott Hotel, was the Yamaha vintage synth exhibit - did you know its been 40 years of Yamaha synthesizers? Well it is - this year.

For our tour of these venerable old ladies (actually, they are younger than me, but synth years have to be at least 4 to 1 IMHO), we had the pleasure of talking Yamaha employee of 28 years and Music Production Product Manager Avery Burdette who took us through the line up of SY2, CS-15, CS-30 and CS-80 (cue intake of breath as he lifts the lid), GS-1, DX-1, DX-7 Centennial, VL-1 and VL-3 taking time to explain the concept of the synth engines behind some of these classics.

Hats off to you Mr Burdette, take a bow and a pay rise.
