    Yamaha D65 Dimensions/Weight

    Hi! I'm considering going and picking up a Yamaha D65, and I'm wondering about how big it is and how much it weighs. I've heard a lot of good things about these larger Yamahas, and I'm really excited to hopefully be getting one!

    I can't find the D65 brochure right now, but looking at the D80 brochure, the dimensions will be similar-ish.

    W. 46 3/4" (should be around the same)
    D. 29 1/4" (will be a couple of inches less as there's no 3rd manual)
    H. 41" (will be a couple of inches less as there's no 3rd manual!)

    Weight: 255 lbs / 116 kg (will be a few pounds less... you can guess why!)
    It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

      Here is a link to the repair manual if you should need it: https://elektrotanya.com/yamaha_d65.zip/download.html

      Measurements depends on which model it is. There is the I and the C model.

      C model: W: 45 ½" (1154 mm), D: 26 1/4" (669 mm) H: 40" (1014 mm) and Weight 229 lbs (103 kg)

      I model: W: 46" (1174 mm), D: 26 3/4" (680 mm), H 34 3/4" (1010 mm) and Weight 229 lbs (103 kg)

      Not substantially different from the measurements of the D85, but I recon it is better to have the exact measurements if you like me have a stationwagon that takes alot, but still have restrictions... (I could fit an ELKA Artist 606 in there, but not the Yamaha D85. It was about 3-4 cm (1½") to deep to fit lying down...).

      Good luck with your new Yamaha!

          Go for it, the D65 is a longstanding forum favourite.

          We really should have a thread on here about the organs we all agree about! That’s one of the few!

            A lot of people in the business have great respect for the D65 and D85, they were great sounding organs, perhaps the pinnacle of Yamaha's 'home' analogue instruments. I last played a D85 in concert back in the mid 90s, I remember it well as it was a poignant evening - the concert would have been played by Bryan Rodwell. Anyway, Lowrey had put in an MX-2 but the club also had the D85 on stage, so I did half the evening on it. Great fun, no presets or floppies, hand registering everything and playing requests!

            Hope you get that D65 and have a lot of fun with it.

              It’s also a testament to how well engineered and manufactured they were that so many are still giving sterling service today. Compared to other organs of that vintage they’ve been remarkable untroublesome.

                Despite what the specs say, they are heavy, awkward, easily scratched and amazing!
                I had one, then a d85, then a second d85 haha
                They are very similar. I have them mostly for the orchestral sounds because they have that awesome synthy sound to them.
                Grab it, you will be very happy.

                  Forgot I posted here, but unfortunately, it sold before I could get to it. Despite this, I'm glad I know more about the D-65, and I'm gonna keep a lookout for another one, or possibly its bigger brother. Thanks for the info, everyone!

                    Well as luck would have it, there's another one, for cheap! I'm gonna go pick it up this weekend!

                      Hi, I haven't posted anything for a while and only just caught up with this old thread.
                      Anyway, after a quick search for D-65 specs, here goes:

                      Height: 101cm
                      Width: 115cm
                      Depth: 67cm
                      Weight: 103kg

                      Or if you prefer in old money:

                      Height: 40"
                      Width: 46"
                      Depth: 27"
                      Weight: 227lb

                      If you are in fact going to collect the organ this weekend, I'm sure you don't need me to remind you to take care and be extra careful

                      Good luck and I hope you enjoy the instrument, you won't be disappointed!

                        One UHaul and a few hours later, it was home! Everything works, except for maybe 2-3 things. Everyone was right about the sound, I love it! Its a really great organ, and I'm glad you guys were here to help! Thanks again!
