The versatility of YC is truly unmatched, establishing itself as a master of versatility in the world of musical instruments. It boasts an array of premium keyboard sounds, offering a wider range of possibilities than any of its competitors. From the rich tones of authentic Yamaha grand and upright pianos, to the vibrant sounds of electric pianos and keyboards, and even a tonewheel organ with a rotary speaker, synths, and acoustic sounds – the YC has it all. What sets it apart even further is Yamaha’s proprietary VCM technology, which flawlessly recreates vintage analog EQs, compressors, and phasers down to the smallest detail – including transistors and resistors. This extraordinary feature enables it to capture the subtle nuances that often elude other digital simulations. The YC is essentially an all-in-one keyboard, delivering an unparalleled sound experience on the go.
To accurately replicate the warm, rich sound of an authentic organ, you must construct an organ engine from scratch, the way it’s done at Yamaha. Yamaha has managed to encapsulate your favourite classical organ sounds within a single, robust stage keyboard. The YC models offer three distinct organ sounds – a crisp, new sound straight out of the box, a well-travelled sound, and a vintage sound rich in character. If you want more control over your sound, you can adjust settings such as key click, leakage, and rotary speaker speed. This gives you the ability to customize and achieve that unique organ tone you’ve been yearning for.
VCM remakes the audio and characteristics of retro effects and top-tier studio signal processors by emulating the circuits to the level of the original analog components.
At Yamaha, we incorporate a century’s worth of knowledge into everything you interact with. Regardless of whether you enjoy the organic touch of a graded acoustic piano, the even response of an electric piano, or a waterfall keyboard with genuine organ action, we have a YC model that suits your preference. It’s not surprising that Yamaha keyboards are the top choice for more musicians.
The YC73 models the distinct feel of an electric piano with its weighted and balanced action. Its E-to-E keyboard, along with a touch that strikes a balance between a graded acoustic piano and a genuine organ action, potentially makes it the most adaptable YC model.
YC Keyboards are made not only for playing but also for enduring rough handling. They can withstand being knocked, scraped, crammed into a vehicle, squeezed into an overhead storage and loved by musicians and their fans, performance after performance. In essence, they’re made durable, just like the company that manufactures and supports them.
The YC’s nine drawbars come with the anticipated footages and ratcheting found in an organ, but they offer more than what’s immediately apparent. The drawbar stops are transparent and feature customizable LED light color, making it simple to distinguish between simulated upper and lower configurations and play in split mode. This is akin to possessing a digital set of drawbars, offering an unprecedented array of sounds, flexibility, and options for a stage keyboard.
Before you rock, roll. The optional YC soft case features a premium design and zippered compartments for storing pedals and other accessories.
