Offers Special Discounts Through July 31 on Music Instruments and Equipment from Yamaha – Global Sound

Global Sound – Riverton, UT (PRWEB) July 19, 2008

Music gear merchant Music123 is featuring Yamaha musical instruments and equipment during the month of July. Music123 will offer deals that apply to all Yamaha music equipment in Recording; Live Sound; DJ and Lighting; and Keyboard departments as well as selected products in the Bass, Guitar, and Percussion departments.

Through July 31, musicians get extra savings of up to 20% off blemished and refurbished Yamaha items. In addition, members of Music123’s Backstage Pass Program will get double points (200 points for every dollar spent) on Yamaha music gear. By accumulating these points, shoppers earn gift certificates that are redeemable toward future purchases at Music123.

From July 17-31, customers who trade in their old gear through the Trade-In, Cash Out (TICO) program and opt to receive a Music123 gift certificate instead of cash for their trade-in will also receive a further 10% discount when they use the certificate for purchase of Yamaha gear.

Among the featured Yamaha products are the new IM8 Series Mixers that were released this year and available in Music123’s Live Sound department. The IM8 Mixing Consoles were developed for professional use and deliver transparent, high-resolution sound. Excellent for monitor mixes, for recording applications, and for churches where the PA system has many potential users, the IM8 mixers were designed for intuitive operation and feature lightweight, compact formats in three models with 24, 32, or 40 mono inputs. Each IM8 mixer features an advanced one-knob compressor on all mono input channels; a master section that provides extensive signal routing and control versatility; flexible output configurations; an external power supply that optimizes the console performance; and a USB audio interface that allows direct digital recording and playback with the included Cubase A14 software. Cubase turns the IM8 mixers into music production workstations that enable users to record, edit, and master their audio performances.

Also released this year are Yamaha’s STAGEPAS 150M and 250M, two all-in-one portable PA and keyboard amplification systems. Building on the success of their predecessors, (the 300 and 500 STAGEPAS models) the Yamaha STAGEPAS 150M and Yamaha STAGEPAS 250M are scaled-down versions. Their portable, versatile design delivers accurate sound reproduction that is ideal for musicians who play at smaller venues or give street performances. The STAGEPAS 250M has a 10-channel powered mixer with built-in compression and limiting capabilities that can be detached from the 250-watt amplifier. This enables the user to place the amp where it’s most convenient. The 150M system has an 8-channel detachable powered mixer and 150-watt amplifier. The speakers on both STAGEPAS models are also effective as audio monitors due to their full-range delivery and handy mixing controls.

Both PA packages include built-in EQ, 1-bit modulation reverb, a pole-mountable audio speaker, and all the necessary cables for quick setup. The series can be expanded to a stereo system by adding a second speaker, making them a high-power, high-performance sound system that’s ready for a wide variety of venues, both indoor and outdoor.
