AR100 Departing
« on: July 15, 2020, 08:06:08 am »
Thats my AR100 on it's way out of the door, great instrument, way beyond my capabilities but I became more and more frustrated with it. I have been nosing around for a Wersi Scala for quite a while without success. I then had the pleasure of driving a Tyros 5 for a short time and no matter whether you love or hate keyboards the sounds, facilities and accompaniments are nothing short of amazing.

I did a deal yesterday for a used Tyros 5 in mint condition and got a very good part ex price for my AR100. The long term plan is to add bass pedals and then a second manual to make a Tyros 5 Organ. I think this will very neatly give me my Wersi Scala but from the Yamaha camp and with far superior voicing.

I have just purchased a set of bass pedals from Elka organ, I intend to convert them to Midi to drive the Tyros.

I will still pop in here from time to time to see how you all are but suspect I may be visiting a little more.
