Yamaha Turns 125

Yamaha Turns 125This month marks the 125th year since Torakusu Yamaha built his first reed organ in Japan, launching what has become the world's largest instrument manufacturer. To commemorate this milestone and celebrate 125 years of passion and performance, Yamaha is kicking off a year filled with special promotions and events!

The first promotion, happening right now, is a sweepstakes for 25 of the brand-new PRO-500 headphones (retail value $399.95 each). We have many more promos in the works, including one-of-a-kind experience packages and quarterly giveaways totaling 125 instruments and other related items.

You can enter right now by visiting the Yamaha website and logging in to your account. You'll notice that "Yamaha EasyPass" has been revamped and is now simply "My Account", but don't worry. Your account settings and history will remain intact and your existing email/password or social sign-in will grant you access into the new My Account.

You'll probably also notice a new "My Rewards" program tied to your account that lets you earn additional contest entries – and even real products – for simply browsing on the Yamaha website, completing special quests, and sharing information about Yamaha with your friends. We hope you enjoy the My Rewards program and discover new content and products and learn something new about making and enjoying music.

Lastly, there's also a new-and-improved Account Settings area that gives you more control than ever before over what kinds of information Yamaha sends you.
