Yamaha reface YC Electric Combo Organ
Yamaha reface YC Electric Combo Organ Product Overview By GAK
The reface YC is another great addition to the incredible new reface series of mobile mini keyboards by Yamaha. The reface YC has all the great features of the other models in the series including battery power, built in speakers and iOS compatibility (via separate camera kit, not included).
Rich, punchy sounds are its area of expertise: The reface YC offers additive synthesis paired with a unique power of expression using nine drawbars and virtual rotary speakers. The instrument combines five different models of organs, the sound is created using a special Organ Flutes Tone Generator. In addition to the possibility to carry around five organs in a single piece of hardware without breaking your back, the reface YC delivers the authentic spirit of playing an organ using the smallest user interface possible.

Say what you like about mini-keys but these Reface keyboards sound amazing. And no programming, just use your ears and tweak the sound
Great little organ keyboard, out of those tiny looking speakers, comes a big sound, good enough for home use,which is what I use it for. For anything else, you would need an amplifier. Also is a solid item,very impressed with my purchase.
Great instrument. Classic organ sounds and the rotary speaker effect is just fabulous. Thank you very much.
Love it. I was after s vintage sound and this YC delivers.
great organ sounds and control over the every part of the sounds on the five great options of organs
