Yamaha's YC88 88-Key Organ Stage Keyboard lets keyboardists take their show on the road. This gig-ready workstation packs piano, organ and synth voices with realistic touch and sound into a lightweight yet robust design. Yamaha's proprietary Virtual Circuitry Modeling technology recreates the nuances of vintage tonewheel organs for an authentic analog experience, while the triple-sensor hammer-action keyboard responds like a finely tuned concert grand.

Express Yourself with Legendary Yamaha Sound

The YC88's sonic palette spans acoustic and electric pianos, strings, brass and more, in addition to iconic FM synthesizer sounds that shaped '80s pop. An array of editable organ tones—from warm and woody to bright and biting—are on tap for crafting a signature sound. Effects like overdrive, distortion and rotary speaker simulation complete the package for players seeking a contemporary edge.

Play the Part with Premium Keyboard Feel

Yamaha designed the YC88's 88 hammer-action keys to satisfy discerning pianists while facilitating organ technique. The triple-sensor mechanism detects the speed and pressure of each keystroke with precision for nuanced control of tone and sustain. A balanced weighting provides enough heft for expressive phrasing without fatiguing performers during lengthy sets.

Take Command of Your Performance

Despite its vintage character, the YC88 employs a modern, intuitive interface for taming its extensive capabilities. Nine assignable sliders and an array of buttons give players hands-on control of volume, effects, voice selection and more. An easy-to-read LCD screen displays essential information at a glance while streamlining navigation of the YC88's deep functionality.

Travel in Style and Comfort

A sturdy yet lightweight chassis and included gig bag make transporting and protecting the YC88 simple. You can move this workstation between venues with ease, while the nylon soft case's padded handles and straps prevent fatigue over long hauls. Multiple compartments provide space for cables, straps and other accessories.
