Yamaha Instruments HQ Museum Tour

US We travel along Innovation Road      14/10/19

We were lucky enough to travel to Hamamatsu - the home of Yamaha musical instruments division in Japan, where they were celebrating 45 years of making synthesizers. They have a large exhibition hall called Innovation Road which tracks the beginnings of Yamaha from 1897 and their first reed organs, through their products (not all of which are instruments) through to the modern day.

We got to see the legendary GX-1 organ - which gave rise to the CS-80, and other instruments, as well as witness the amazing holographic robot band....

Yamahasynth's Nate Tschetter took us through it.
