- Best musical instrument I have EVER played
I was looking after Yamaha Tyros line for quite a while but it was always way over my budget... Then I found Yamaha PSR-S970 and was blown away with it's features and quality of the instruments. It's absolutely unbelievable sounding machine and it comes from someone who owns Yamana XF8 - which is also beast but for different purpose. Bottom line - if you have money buy it, if you don't have money take a loan and buy it, if you can't take loan sell something and buy it! This instrument is like getting a mouth and tongue after being mute for a while - it let's you express yourself musically in a ways that are impossible without it. Congratulating Yamaha on job well done. And thank you to Music shack for top notch service as always.
