    Comments about Yamaha MX61 61 Key Music Production Synthesizer:

    Yamaha updated the MX series of keyboards with this edition. The sounds are excellent, and it is very easy to create and program your sounds. The on-board effects are about the best I have ever encountered for a keyboard based unit. This was an excellent investment!

      Comments about Yamaha MX61 61 Key Music Production Synthesizer:

      I was looking for a keyboard that was easier to transport than my weighted 88 key KS32, and this one definitely fits the bill at only 10 or 12 lbs. I play with several worship teams so need to have a quite portable set-up. I love the sounds and how easy it is to operate. It helps that the instruction book is pretty simple and not a huge manual.

            Comments about Yamaha MX61 61 Key Music Production Synthesizer:

            I actually purchased 2 of these - one "Level 2" blemished and one "Level 3" scratch and dent. The level 2 arrived in perfect condition with large holes in the box from what I assume was the original purchase that was returned to sender. They keyboard inside was untouched, however.
            The scratch and dent one is an even bigger bargain. It arrived without manuals, wrapped in bubble wrap in a plain brown cardoard box. The keyboard itself looks and works great. It had clearly been touched before, but I could find no scratches, dents, or other indications of abuse. Bargain.

              Comments about Yamaha MX61 61 Key Music Production Synthesizer:

              I decided to take a chance on the "Condition 2 blemished" open box version and am glad I did. Obviously each one is different, but the one I got was clearly returned due to visible box damage during shipping to the initial recipient. There were return tags applied and it had clearly never been opened. The damage to the box didn't reflect on the product (or even the keyboard wrapping) inside as the unit itself arrived in perfect condition without a scratch. Great way to save some $$. They apparently don't double-box these like most of the larger products I receive - apparently it's cheaper for them to discount than buy outer boxes for all of them! Good luck!

                Deliriously happy with the synth. I wouldn't have known item was a return from another customer. No scuffs, no dust, no opened packet, no rattle of internal guts. Hoping to score a "blemished" Roland Juno DS61 someday soon when my bank account has recovered. :-)

                Comments about Yamaha MX61 61 Key Music Production Synthesizer:

                Have many Yamaha products from C3 grand piano to CP4 88 key Stage Piano, sound module and SY22 synth. The MX61 is top notch. Without their knowing I got the new board, my bandmates noticed the improved, realistic sounds versus my old SY22. The MX sounds are real and setting up performances with sound/Splits/Layers makes live gigs a breeze.
