April will see Yamaha taking their recently unveiled Montage synthesizer on a UK wide tour with the acclaimed and brilliant keyboardist Josh Phillips. The instrument was presented to the press and a host of top players in London recently with many claiming Montage takes Synthesizers to a new level.
Josh is currently keyboard player with Procol Harum and his many credits and collaborators include Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton and Pete Townshend. These are ‘not to be missed’ events for anybody interested in music production, serious synthesizers and sound design, they’ll show just what Montage is capable of in the hands of a professional player.
The tour will come to PMT Cardiff, PMT Birmingham and PMT Manchester. Each event will feature Josh and Yamaha product specialists demonstrating Montage and showcasing the entire sonic and creative capability of this stunning new generation instrument.

Anyone attending will also have the chance to get hands on Montage for themselves and check out the great new features. Montage is THE new Yamaha Flagship synthesizer and raises the bar for serious synthesis, offering ten times the waveform capacity of Yamaha’s award-winning MOTIF XF, and uniquely combines Yamaha’s powerful FM-X and AWM2 technologies for unprecedented power and control. Quick and creative control is easy via the new ‘Super Knob’ function making it the perfect partner for studio or stage.
