What customers say about "Key Specs"
Yamaha PSR-S770 61-Key Arranger Workstation
  • Key action feels solid and whole instrument appears to well made.
  • Love this keyboard, nice feel, lots of styles, and voices.
  • love the voice and style quality. They are amazing. the middle eastern and oriental voices and styles are perfect.
  • Unfortunately there was a problem 2 black keys came to stiff to the point you couldn't play the piano properly. You would have to use extra force just to make sure the key was pressed. Something like this easily ruins the experience of playing the piano.
  • Very bad keys. Loud plastic clicks. Dark theme screen. All DJ styles are basically songs..
  • The keys they make noise every time you press them ( mechanical noise).

  • I had Yamaha 2000, A2000 and now I have s970 and I like it. It has very nice sounds and styles.
  • The keyboard sounds are excellent, and then we get to the Vocal armony 'feature' Wow..What a disappointment! I used my Sennheiser E815, and the harmonies were terrible.
  • I'm very impressed with this Arranger, the sounds are very realistic, not to mention the Audio Styles, it's like having live musicians, the closes you can get to a Tyros
  • It's a nice keyboard but some voices are really bad. like the sax and accordeon
  • Yamaha PSR S950/S970 are great Arranger Workstations. But when comparing with other competitive brands, it's very difficult to use the pitch bend specially in live shows.

What customers say about "Features"
Yamaha PSR-S770 61-Key Arranger Workstation
  • But all the other feature more than makes up for it, besides, you can load a tone of midi song on it if you really want them. Or stick a USB flash drive in the back with all the song you desire. I have had it for a couple of months now and I expect it to last a longtime.
  • This keyboard offers many interesting and fun features including complete control over every aspect of playing music. It will take some time for a beginner to learn all different features of this keyboard, but overall, Yamaha PSR-A3000 appears to be a great keyboard.
  • Much much comptable. I can remix any song with a complete band out of it and more advance program. It is just best to any musicans. Thanks.
  • There is an option of turning off the tracks and re-recording the track as a WAV... but it kind of defeats the purpose. It does sound excellent through the PA ... playing Pink Floyd, I definitely get to go Gilmour and amaze the buddies.
  • Very poor quality to the touch. Arabic sample are very inauthentic and the power is not great at all.

  • Also it has many new and applicable features like: Knob volume, 512 Mb exp ram, drum setup.
  • The pitch bend is good the way it is i've try other keyboard brand's this is just perfect don't need change it (if it's not broken don't fix it)
  • It really is a great instrument and has so many features. You can do so many stuff with this thing.
  • The tones are great and provides friendly features to use it as arranger. The mic/guitar in feature is superb and also you can play around with the harmonizer in it. Its a great machine to quickly put ideas together.
