NEW CLAVINOVA 600 SERIES DIGITAL PIANOS from YAMAHA!

banner-Clavinova-NEW-APRIL-2017
When Time Magazine recently included the Yamaha Clavinova in its Top 50 Gadgets of All Time it was a timely reminder of just how much the range has done to redefine our perception of exactly how good a ‘Digital Piano’ can be.
Since the first models in the mid 80s Yamaha’s R&D department, working in conjunction with an astounding breath of international artists, have constantly pushed the boundaries of design innovation in their mission to distill the sound, touch and feel of some of the world’s finest grand pianos into an instrument that would be practical and affordable for all.
Today (5 April 2017) Yamaha launch their new 600 Series Clavinovas which once more redefine what we can expect from a digital piano and introduce some of the most outstanding features of their ‘top end’ models into even the entry level CLP625.

The New Entry level CLP625 now features the incredible sound of Yamaha’s Flagship CFX Concert Grand and the unmistakable warmth and depth of the renowned Bosendorfer Imperial Grand. These wonderful sounds, coupled with Yamaha’s acclaimed GH3X Graded Hammer Action Keyboard with ivory feel key tops, bring all the essence of a fine quality instrument’s sound and touch into your home or classroom at a very reasonable price.

New Cables from Legendary Pedal Maker MXR

Often Overlooked as a key element in preserving instrument tone ,choosing the correct lead can be a huge factor in getting the best possible sound from your instruments.

Having noticed that many standard cables seemed to degrade the sound to the point where the subtle enhancements of many of their famous pedals were being lost legendary pedal maker MXR set about designing their own range of cables to give the ultimate in tone , clarity and durability .

Feedback from their many MXR endorsees and users suggested that what most players wanted in a cable was high conductivity, low noise and a strong flexible outer shield that inhibits self tangling .

To meet this spec MXR’s engineers came up with a 24AWG oxygen-free copper core , 95% coverage spiral shielding to block out unwanted EMI and RFI interference and a heavy PVC outer jacket to ensure flexibility and protect against kinks and tangling.

06BDUN-DCIX10

Available in 10ft , 20ft and patch lengths with standard or pro connector types these cables are the last line in the battle to preserve the purity of tone of your cherished instrument .

Designed to take all the punishment a life on the road has to offer these cables will give pure un-coloured tone night after night gig after gig ,

No fancy colours , no flashy gold connectors that do nothing for your sound just good old fashion rock n roll tone and reliability ,you owe it to your instrument to check out these cables.
