21 September 2017
- We believe that Yamaha Genos may be on the water.

21 September 2017 - The Yamaha Genos brochure that we saw is aiming Genos at the professional player. Note to current Tyros owners... please DO NOT WORRY! It does all the usual Tyros stuff (big band, bossas, etc) but way better than any Tyros ever did.

20 September 2017 - Promenade Music begin to advertise Yamaha Genos as a product.

19 September 2017 - I've just been to the Yamaha Genos Dealer Launch in Berlin. October 2nd is when info on the Yamaha Genos will be officially released. The Yamaha Genos is only available in the 76 note format... no 61 note version is available. The width is less than the Tyros5 76 note version though and there is now a touch screen. There are not as many buttons but more control knobs and it looks easier to use than any previous Tyros keyboard. The sound and accompaniments are amazing! It's available in black only and there's a new matching Genos speaker system and L7B black stand for it. Exciting times.

18 September 2017 - Promenade Music head to Berlin to see and hear the Genos for the very first time.

16 September 2017 - Rumour... Tyros registrations on Genos will require converting using computer software. If this is right, Promenade Music will do it for you, free if you buy the Genos from us.

15 September 2017 - Yamaha Genos Keyboard Launch Presentation will be on Monday 13th November 2017 at The Strathmore Hotel Morecambe (LA4 5AP) from 2pm until 4pm, Free Admission

14 September 2017 - Under Yamaha's Genos page on their website, there is a section called 'Genos in Action' and they've put up a video of Alex Christensen & The Berlin Orchestra - Rhythm Is A Dancer track. There's no mention of Genos in the description so we have no idea why it's there?

13 September 2017 - UK rumour... Genos preset styles will top 500. They are supposed to sound more life like than ever!

12 September 2017 -
It’s official. Yamaha have created a special web site for the new Yamaha Genos at

11 September 2017
- Yamaha have begun a Teaser Video Campaign For Genos

10 September 2017 - There are teaser Genos videos coming on September 11th, 15th, 22nd and 29th

9 September 2017 - Fact... Genos will have both audio recording and MIDI recording.

7 September 2017
- Yamaha Genos (like the Tyros range) will continue with detachable speakers but will only require one connecting lead.

4 September 2017
- Fact! Yamaha have recorded some drums for the new Genos keyboard at Peter Gabriel's 'Wood Room' at Real World Studios near Bath in South West England.

1 September 2017
- Unconfirmed. We think the new Genos will have a joystick for the pitch bend & modulation (instead of wheels). This is similar to Korg and Roland product.

28 August 2017
- Word on the street (from a Japanese keyboard dealer) is that the new Yamaha Genos Keyboard will ONLY be available in black and ONLY available as a 76 note version. Time will tell.

19 August 2017 - Fact from Japan... Genos will feature the CFX piano sample will be in the new Genos which has been used in Clavinovas for a while.

16 August 2017
- Leaked image of the internet of new 'product'. Unless it's a mock up, we now know it's called 'Genos'... sure the phone will start ringing soon.

14 August 2017 - Rumor from Japan... The keyboard will feature nine assignable 'long' sliders and six assignable knobs.

12 August 2017 - Whisper is the new Tyros 6 - or whatever it's going to be called - has a touch screen.

10 August 2017 - We have made our first sale of the new Tyros 6... or whatever it's going to be called. Mike (the customer) totally trusts Yamaha to come up with the goods and for Promenade Music to do the UK's best deal for him. This MUST be one the first UK orders for Yamaha's new TOP of the range keyboard.

11 June 2017 - Just heard from a Yamaha 'friend' abroad that the highly anticipated new Tyros 6 will be out in October 2017.
