Procul Harum keyboardist Josh Phillips to demo new synth

Josh PhillipsApril will see Yamaha taking their recently unveiled Montage synthesizer on a UK-wide tour with the highly acclaimed keyboardist Josh Phillips. Josh is currently keyboard player with Procol Harum and his many credits and collaborators include Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton and Pete Townshend. 

The tour kicks off on 18th April and travels to 11 locations from Eastbourne to Glasgow. These are ‘not to be missed’ events for anyone interested in music production, serious synthesizers and sound design. Those attending will see just what Montage is capable of in the hands of a professional player.

Each event will feature Josh as well as Yamaha product specialists demonstrating Montage and showcasing the entire sonic and creative capability of this next-generation instrument. There will also be a chance to get hands-on with Montage and check out all the new features. 

Montage is the new Yamaha flagship synthesizer, offering 10 times the waveform capacity of Yamaha’s award-winning MOTIF XF, and, uniquely, combining Yamaha’s powerful FM-X and AWM2 technologies for unprecedented power and control. Quick and creative sound shaping is easy via the new ‘Super Knob’ function, making Montage eminently suitable for studio or stage. For full details visit
