Yamaha considering the old folks?
« on: August 07, 2022, 03:02:42 PM »
I have been playing a Tyros4 for years. Sadly, it is getting heavy. I have many style files that I have built on a thumb drive. Simply, is there any advice on a smaller unit that will play the files on my thumb drive. I have to keep playing but can not keep carrying!! Thanks

The PSR models are not so much lighter than the Tyros, but they are smaller, so more convenient to carry. Keep your Tyros and invest in a gigbag with wheels.

Actually, I found them quite a bit lighter. Lighter keyboards made much more sense as me than adding weight to my problem (wheelie gig bag).

I have a Tyros 4......I don't play out of the house anymore, but when I did I had a gig bag with wheels and it worked for me until I just got too old!  However, my old PSR900 was smaller and lighter than my Tyros 4.  I really liked it.  Flip
