About Yamaha Reface

The Yamaha Reface series has been created to celebrate some of Yamaha's most iconic keyboards and synthesizers. Over the last 50 years, several Yamaha keyboards have broken boundaries to create iconic sounds that have changed the face of music.

Instruments like the DX7, CS80 and CP80 featured pioneering technologies that became a huge part of the sound of film, television and pop music. Instantly recognisable to the ear, these instruments were quickly adopted by many professional musicians and still remain in high demand. To honor these classic instruments, each Yamaha Reface keyboard takes inspiration from a specific model and reimagines it into a portable keyboard with an easy-to-understand user interface.

If you're looking for a compact keyboard that focuses on giving genuinely usable synth, electric piano or organ sounds, a Yamaha Reface keyboard is for you!

  • Professional sounds in a compact keyboard
