Something For Everyone With New Premium Styles - Pop, R&B, Ballads & Country

This week we're making the Premium Styles catalog more inclusive. Four Premium Styles previously only available for specific instruments, are now available for all Premium Style compatible keyboards. The new styles include country twang, soulful, brassy R&B, smooth light rock, and upbeat guitar pop, and you can get all of them on either Yamaha MusicSoft or Internet Direct Connection.

The 60's Novelty Pop style, previously only available for the Tyros3, is now available in versions for the Tyros2, CVP series Clavinovas and PSR keyboards.

60's Novelty Pop - Journey back to the United Kingdom in the height of the 1960’s with this classic British chart groove. The feel of the era is captured with a rhythmic accompaniment lead by MegaVoice guitars, and a wonderful overall sound made possible by the instrument's digital signal processing.

Also new this week are three Premium Styles for the Tyros3 - Cool Ballad, Easy Country Swing and Classic R&B. Keep reading for new videos from Martin Harris, showing off this week's new Tyros3 styles.
