At 41 pounds, the YC88 is a portable keyboard perfect for a pianist looking for a versatile instrument. Great for gigging keyboardists, Yamaha’s YC88 boasts VCM technology, physical drawbars for organ sounds, control over multiple included sounds, and much more. 

Operating from 3 sound source systems – VCM organ sound source, FM organ sound source, and AWM2 sound source – the YC88 excels in organ style. Yamaha’s proprietary VCM technology imitates circuitry in vintage analog EQs, compressors and phasers to create that retro feel and capture subtleties beyond other digital simulations. VCM organ and FM organ are both included each with different sounds and styles to choose from. FM organ uses the keyboard drawbars to control 8 FM operators sending pure sound and massive low end. Nine drawbars have the footages and ratcheting expected in an organ and are see-through with customizable LED light easily indicating changes. Further personalize the organ tone with adjustments to key click, leakage, rotary speaker speed and more.

Premium keyboard sound has lots of possibilities with sounds from authentic grand/upright pianos, electric pianos and keyboards to a tonewheel organ with rotary speaker, synths, acoustic sounds and more. Adjust these sounds to your preference with the different effects and modes in the synth.

Ideal for gigging keyboardists, the YC88 keys have natural wood graded hammer action for a comfortable authentic playing feel. Live set function lets you register sounds you program so they can be immediately recalled at the touch of a button. One page can register 8 sounds, with up to 20 pages of live set capability. YC88’s portable weight makes it easy to take on the road, but it can also handle the minor damages often associated with road use.
