One thought on “Yamaha Genos Keyboard Big Reveal! – Demonstration Videos, Specs and More… [UPDATED]

  • HI James Woodcock & friends,

    As the Yamaha Genos is relatively new and there is not much flying around in the way of info or guides, I have found a Yamaha official product Guide which is really great reading. It shows all details of the Genos and is more of an owners manual. It is in pdf format so Abobe Reader would be needed. It’s 44 pages long with great images too. I have actually paid my deposit for the new Genos but thought this guide would help others decide whether to buy themselves. The link is here below, the guide is about 7Mb so its download is pretty quick, although app.box.net can take a few moments to initiate and display on screen. Click the Blue Box in the top line if you wish to keep the guide on your hard drive etc

    my first attempt to share this with you seemed to end up in electronic hyperspace, hopefully this one will work.


    Best wishes to all
