Celebrate 50 Years of Yamaha In America

2010 is a big year for Yamaha, as it marks our 50th year of providing the U.S. with world class musical instruments.

Since setting up shop in California in 1960, Yamaha has produced some of America's favorite musical instruments. And, what better way to celebrate than to take look back at some of the groundbreaking products Yamaha has produced over the last half century? Yamaha Corporation of America has put together a special Yamaha 50th Anniversary Website that will let you do just that.

The 50th anniversary site provides videos that tell the story of the company's growth over five decades, as well as images of iconic Yamaha moments and instruments and detailed written histories. The site places Yamaha's advancements and achievements in a broad historical context, explaining not only how Yamaha has impacted the world in the last 50 years, but also how the company and its products have responded to changes and events. With commentary from Yamaha employees past and present, and footage from historic Yamaha concerts and artists, the site gives a comprehensive view of Yamaha's fascinating first 50 years in America.
