Hi from New member
« on: April 19, 2017, 01:38:37 AM »
Hi All,
proud owner of a recently acquired Tyros 3 here! I'm from South Wales UK and I've been playing keyboards, organ and piano for, well let's say many years. I reached Grade 5 on piano and even as a kid I was always fascinated with electronic organs (arranger keyboards weren't even thought of then), so I progressed from piano to organ. Within a year I was playing in local pubs and Workingmen's clubs, sometimes with a drummer but mostly solo. Eventually the organ was sold and I moved on to keyboards, mainly for the portable convenience and the sense of familiarity.

My taste in music is fairly broad, ranging from oldies, Big Band, Easy L, current charts and Dance. I'm the wrong side of 50 but quite young-minded! My current kit line-up includes the T3, Roland E-70 and a Yamaha EZ-200 (ok technically it belongs to my youngest daughter, but I seem to play it more than she does these days). I also have a Yamaha HS8, a D-85, a Technics U90 Pro and a Wersi Helios W2S. I don't play publicly any more, only for my own enjoyment at home and occasionally for friends when I'm asked.

So I bought a Tyros 3, which I'm loving. I'm getting on with it fine and finding new stuff each day and even though it's quite intuitive to use, I'm sure I'll have some questions for the more experienced owners here! I hope to post some more detailed thoughts and views in future.

Hi Neil,

Welcome to the forum and thank you for becoming a member.  I enjoyed reading your short biography and you certainly have an impressive background.  I'm sure you're going to learn a great deal about your Tyros 3 keyboard here on the forum and will experience many pleasurable hours playing it.

We have many things in common and I noticed you own and play a Yamaha Electone HS-8.  I own two HS-8T's, having bought the first one new in 1987.  I still play mine and I'm sure you do also.  They still produce some marvelous sounds today.

Hi All...

... I'm the wrong side of 50 but quite young-minded!


I wouldn't fret too much about that... it's when you are on the wrong side of 80 you might want to get a little concerned about some things.


Welcome... and I'm sure you will pick up a few tips here now and then.

Hi Roger,
many thanks for the warm welcome, and to Joe also. The HS-8 is a great organ and I have the CVS-10 drawbar expander and the MDR-4 FDD. I was considering replacing it with an EL-900, but I've wanted a Tyros for ages and when one came along I went for it! The reason I mentioned the CVS-10 is that I reckon it should work ok with the T3, as I can get some great sounds from it including a rather decent 'well-known German kit organ sound,' so I was going to ask if anyone has tried it.

I'm very happy to have been accepted as a member, as this is a site full of great resources. Thanks again.

Best regards,
