They say good things come in small packages, and who are we to disagree? Yamaha certainly doesn't, since they developed a line of compact keyboards that are practically pocket sized. It's called Yamaha reface, and the amount of performance they've been able to pack into these tiny boards is downright impressive. So, why the name "reface"? Simple: each one is a re imagined version of a classic Yamaha keyboard, scaled down to a size that's ready to go with you so you can create new sounds anytime, anywhere. Whether you're a songwriter, sound designer or simply a keyboard enthusiast, there's virtually no place you can't scratch your itch to play with one of these mobile keyboards.
Choosing the best Yamaha reface model for your tastes will probably depend on which classic Yamaha keyboard you like best. Let's start with the Yamaha reface CP Mobile Mini Keyboard for example it's based on the Yamaha CP80 electric grand piano, and also comes loaded with tine, reed, clavi and toy voices, as well as built in drive, modulation, delay and reverb. On the other hand, if you're more of an organist than a pianist, there's the Combo Organ inspired Yamaha reface YC Mobile Mini Keyboard. Maybe you'd like the freedom to create your own custom tones completely from scratch? In that case, check out the Yamaha reface CS Mobile Mini Keyboard, which is based on the CS5 synthesizer. Or, for the digital synth enthusiast, how about the Yamaha reface DX Mobile Mini Keyboard, carrying the torch of the Yamaha DX7's digital synth library?
No matter which Yamaha reface keyboard sounds like the right fit for you, there's no doubting that it will be a worthy addition to your instrument collection. Every one of these micro boards is a top seller, after all, and they fly off the shelves for a good reason. Performance is in their DNA considering the legendary Yamaha models they're based on, and when you've got your own Yamaha reface to try, you'll find out firsthand that they live up to the family tradition in a big way despite their small size.
