Gets the job done.

By The Burnside Bums-T_XJF

from Philadelphia, Pa

See all my reviews

Our band bought one of these over a year ago, and it has not let us down yet. We're able to get a great sounding live mix when we mic all of our instruments. There is no reverb or any other effects, so the vocals sound very "upfront." We're looking into some processors to fix that problem, or else upgrade to a more expensive mixer, but for the money this mixer is great. If a basic mixer is what you're looking for, look no furtherthan Yamaha.


Awesome mixer in the price range

By vande058

I've had this mixer for almost 2 years. I use it for 4-piece band gigs, dj'ing w/ a couple of iPods & a mic, and for mixing audio when rehearsing at home. Only drawback for my application are the 2 aux sends/receives. It would be nice to have 4 to give more discreet monitor channels for the stage.For quality, I give it a 4.5 only because the channel 1 gain came unsoldered after it fell (mounted in a rack) off the tailgate of my truck while unloading. Up to that point, though, the board worked flawlessly.

This mixer is absolutely the best you can get for such a great price. I have had mine for about 3 months now, and I have ZERO complaints!! I personally didnt find it to be as complex as everyone else did; I thought it was was easy to set up and use. The included rack-ears are GREAT as well. All in all, another great product from Yamaha!


What's in a name...

Yamaha has always been a name you can count on. At least, that's my experience. I have yet to be disappointed with any of their products, and discovered the same here. The mixer is well built, and versitile. I found it perfect for the home studio in terms of size and routing options. I purchased this after drafting up wiring diagrams and such for what I wanted to be able to do in the studio, and this mixer does it flawlessly. If you're looking for a mixer for the studio, or small live applications, you can't go wrong with the 16/4.

Great mixer for the $$$$

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I use an Electronic drumset a lot in small clubs and needed something for that and for tweaking my mic mix back to the main board in the bigger clubs. This works great no problems and alot of differant ways to route. I run this through a 3000watt power amp into 2 fender 15 monitors and it' sounds Sweet!

Wow! what a mixer.... This mixer is a great mixer. I use this mixer exclusivly for recording. And I put it through a tone port and it works great (I was very surprised). I love all the effects that it has. Its Pretty complicated.. It was my first mixer so if you know mixers it would not be. Overall a very good value 10 Mics .... "sweet" Great mixer

Awesome mixer

By Muffin Man-CS3K1

I bought this mixer to use for my own monitor mix, with a snake coming out of the main board. It sounds awesome, very quiet. I shopped around quite a bit between Mackie, Peavey, Behringer etc. and am glad I went with this one. Plenty of signal routing options, although I don't hardly utilize any of them. It's nice that it comes with the rack ears, lots of other companies don't include them. Great bang for the buck.


Sweet Action

By Evan-fyrXI

from T-Burg Ohio

Ive got my Yamaha MG16/4 in my home studio and i love it. it seem very well built and all the knobs and faders just kinda feel like quality to me. I use it for recording and movie sound tracks. The sound I get out of this is amazing. No downfalls yet. If you need a small, basic board and are thinking of this or a smaller Mackie, get this save some money and put that toward mics or something.

Great Mixer

By Mitch VanDenBerghe

from Rochester NY

See all my reviews

I purchased this mixer on Friday with some money from Christmas. I am really impressed with the clarity and quality of the sound that this mixer produces. Naturally, as with any analog mixer, it is not loud enough to use with my band, so I will be purchasing a power amp soon. I am debating between the mackie FR1400 and the Yamaha P2500S. Also, it would be wise to buy a case for this mixer to protect such an investment. I'm going to get the SKB Mini Gig Rig. I also puchased an SM58 on Friday and it sounds great through this mixr, but very quiet, again because I do not yet have a power amp. I would recomend this mixer to any of my friends.
