by Madonna

Yamaha, a name synonymous with musical excellence, has introduced the YX-1030PR Xylophone, a compact, lightweight, and portable instrument designed to enrich music education. This 3-octave tabletop xylophone has been meticulously crafted to enhance the art of percussion playing, catering to students embarking on their musical journey, whether in a classroom or the comfort of their home.

The YX-1030PR Xylophone is a testament to Yamaha’s dedication to inspiring and nurturing young musicians while ensuring a gratifying learning experience. “The launch of our new YX-1030PR Xylophone is part of our ongoing commitment at Yamaha to inspire young musicians and offer them the most enjoyable experience of learning a new instrument,” emphasized Joel Tetzlaff, the product marketing manager at Yamaha Corporation of America. “We designed the YX-1030PR for music educators and students seeking a xylophone that is easy to play and will help them advance their skills.”

This xylophone is not only an ideal gateway from bell kits but also serves as a stepping stone for students aspiring to perform at high school and university levels. The YX-1030PR is equipped with Pao Rosa bars, renowned for their brilliant tones and robust projection, comparable to the physical and acoustic attributes of the rosewood used in high-end Yamaha xylophone models. The instrument’s expanded 38mm tone bar width elevates its dynamic range and offers a more extensive sweet spot, facilitating intricate two and four-mallet playing techniques.

For the convenience of musicians, the YX-1030PR can be placed on a tabletop or paired with the YGS-70 X-Style stand, which provides flexible height adjustment ranging from 25″ to 33″.

Yamaha YX-1030PR Features At-a-Glance:

  • 3-octave tabletop
  • Compact, lightweight, and portable
  • Sturdy frame for durability
  • Premium Pao Rosa bars
  • 1 ½” wide bars

The Yamaha YX-1030PR is available now, priced at $1,748.00. This remarkable addition to Yamaha’s lineup promises to elevate the learning experience for budding musicians, making music education accessible and enjoyable.
