A Rememberance of Yamaha's Past

Yamaha produced their first reed organ 1887 and went on, over the next 96 years, to become the largest musical instrument company in the world.

And then, in 1983, they made this commercial for the now discontinued line of Porta Sound keyboards. The commercial features the play by lights system (which is still in use on today's keyboard models), Yamaha's PlayCards (which, unfortunately, aren't) as well as some good old fashioned Yamaha-inspired intergenerational bonding.

Ahhhh... the good old days.

Not much news on the Online Services front this weekend, but be sure to check out this week's new PianoSoft if you haven't already, and brace yourself for more developments next week.

Have a great weekend!
