Yamaha’s TY-E features advanced new technology and has come straight from the company’s “Evolving R&D” programme, in which Yamaha R&D employees are given the opportunity to work outside conventional frameworks and devote up to 5 per cent of their working hours towards developing innovative new concepts.
