Default Yamaha Music Production Tour with Bert Smorenburg and New Yamaha Product Debut

If you've ever been to NAMM or such events, you'll know Bert Smorenburg. He is quite likely the music industry's most informative, and definitely entertaining product demonstrator!

[IMG]http://www.dv247.com/assets/news/dv247/bertie.jpg[/IMG]

Bert can found all over You Tube e.g. [URL="http://www.youtube.com/user/yamahacorporation"]Bert's Motif XS Demo[/URL]

Also see DV247 Forum member Waxxy's post: [URL="http://forums.dv247.com/pro-audio/176-bert-smorenburg-god.html"]Bert Smorenburg is a god[/URL]

During August, Bert and the Yamaha Music Production Team will be visiting:

Digital Village Bristol: Tuesday 5th August (1pm ~5pm)
Digital Village Southampton: Wednesday 6th August (1pm ~5pm)
Digital Village Retail Warehouse, Romford: Thursday 7th August (3pm~5pm)
Digital Village Cambridge: Friday 8th August (3.30pm~5.30pm)

Register [URL="http://www.dv247.com/news/Bert%20Smorenburg's%20Yamaha%20Workshop%20at%20DV%20EXPO/131693"]here[/URL] if you would like to come to any of these free events.

The Yamaha team will also be bringing along a box of freebies, and assure us of a daily quiz at each store to secure a "very special prize!".

There will also be a Tenori-on specialist available plus we've been told of an on-site demonstration of a brand new, as yet un-disclosed secret product....Can you guess what it is yet?

Hey Waxxy,

Agreed - the man is a legand - and humour sells. We're going to film the Romford demo - I'll see what we can do about the t-shirt here at Romford - as long as they bring some with them consider it done. I'll let you know on 7th of August. SHould be fun.

Bert is a great guy and extremely funny in 4 or 5 languages - I particularly enjoyed his German R&B Demo at Muikmesse this year

Hey Waxxy,

I gotcha a Yamaha T-Shirt - but it is black so Bert couldn't sign it - however, I also got a Mouse matt signed by Bert for you so if you can pin the mouse matt to your t-shirt you'll have a t-shirt signed by Bert.

I just need to know where to send 'em to!! Send me a forum mail/message with details and I'll get them sent out!

We did try and get some footage with a digital camera on movie mode but it promptly ran out of battery and of course we didn't have the charger. A shame - there was a great AC/DC, Justin Timberlake, Accordian/Polka mash up.
