  • Yamaha P85 Reverb

    October 10th, 2012
    keyboard  [html]
    At the BIDA dance Sunday, where Julie was using my Yamaha P85 keyboard instead of her identical one:
    Julie: You know what makes my keyboard different from yours? It doesn't have reverb on.
    Jeff: I don't think mine has reverb.
    Julie: It sure sounds like it does.
    Jeff: But I thought these keyboards didn't have a reverb option.
    Julie: They do, but it's one of those hidden options.
    Jeff: [Brings up manual on the phone.] You're right: it does have reverb. [Holds down 'metronome' and the highest note on the keyboard.]
    Julie: This sounds much better; thanks!
    Jeff: When I first got this keyboard, a year and a half ago, Amy would complain that it sounded reverby. I wish I'd looked at it more then!
