  • Yamaha Electone HS8 or El70

    Hello everone,

    I am planning to buy a new electone but i cannot decide yet. As a kid I used an HS4 model so i am very familiar with Hs series, how it sounds and use in general. I accept the fact that el series are newer and more developed in many ways but never had the chance of using one. So should i go for the HS8 or try something new with EL70 model?

    Thanks in advance
    Dimitris

    EL70. More advanced all round and has some proper organ sounds available with 'digital drawbars'.
    It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

      No contest the EL70 is different league to hs8, though not as good as the el90 still got very good spec, and lot more easy to use the HS organs. Still do very decent theatre and classic organ sounds as well with the right disks.

        Hi Demilio.just gotta say I've just got rid of my el60...and gone back to a an HS8...
        Prior got el60 I had an HS7....I much,much prefer the HS series...and in my personal opinion...a far more interesting instrument to master..prefer sounds though...I got Lynne from Premier organs (UK)to put a great quick step rhythm on a ram pack..WOW!!! incredible
        1000%... Electone HS..anyday !!....many thanks for reading ...and..."don't ya just love making good music ..?

          Each to their own! There's no doubt that the HS series has legions of fans. Alas, I'm not one - I hated them. Multi-menu nightmare every time I played one.

          You've really got to try both. Hands-on is the only real way to choose. Worth mentioning that the EL60 is no EL70/90. Different league, IMHO.

            thanks a lot guys for your opinion!! I have to say i went for the el70 but i lost the auction for 10 pounds in the last 3 seconds! Anyway i ordered a second hand HS8 model! Didn't get that yet couse i live in Greece and it will come from the uk..
            One problem i am concerned right now is the fact that there is no floppy disk drive. I may need to find an mdr3....

              demileo,

              Take a look at the classifieds section of this Forum. I know there is an MDR-3 available right now.
