Authentic organ feel and tone with deep control.

The Yamaha YC61 combo organ synthesizer gives you the iconic tonewheel organ sound and playing experience in a compact, lightweight instrument perfect for gigging keyboardists. At its heart is Yamaha's Virtual Circuitry Modeling engine that emulates individual components to authentically reproduce the character and sound of classic tonewheel organs. With nine physical drawbars, a semi-weighted 61-note keyboard and intuitive real-time controls, you have everything you need to shape your organ tones on the fly.

Emulated Tonewheel Engine Delivers Iconic Sound

Yamaha's proprietary Virtual Circuitry Modeling technology recreates the vintage tonewheel organ circuitry in meticulous detail, right down to the individual transistors and resistors. The result is the authentic tone, behavior and sound that has defined organ music for generations. With nine physical drawbars, you have real-time control over the level of each harmonic, allowing you to craft your perfect organ sound.

Waterfall Keyboard and Drawbars Provide Authentic Playing Feel

The YC61 features a 61-note semi-weighted waterfall keyboard, ideal for glissando and rapid chordal passages. Nine physical drawbars let you manipulate harmonics by feel, rather than through menus on a display. This combination of keyboard and drawbars provides an intuitive, hands-on experience akin to playing a real vintage tonewheel organ.

Additional Sounds for Versatility

In addition to the emulated tonewheel organ sounds, the YC61 includes acoustic and electric piano sounds as well as the iconic FM synthesis sounds that Yamaha popularized. This sonic versatility allows you to cover a wide range of musical styles without needing additional keyboards. The YC61 has everything you need in one compact, portable package.

Lightweight, Compact Design for Gigging

The YC61 is the perfect size for gigging and stage use. Its compact, streamlined design takes up minimal space in your setup while providing big, bold tonewheel organ sound. For maximum portability, the YC61 comes with a durable gig bag to protect it on the go.
