  • 50 professionally crafted factory presets for superb tones right out of the box.
  • 50 user presets to customize and save your favorite settings.
  • MIDI input & thru/out. Controller mode replaces a simple MIDI controller.
  • Powerful, flexible expression control engine. Use an external expression pedal or the built-inA/B switch with adjustable transition times.

  • Adjustable gain structure works with instrument or line-level inputs.
  • High contrast, wide viewing angle display is easy to read from a distance.
  • Small footprint with top jacks is easy to incorporate into pedalboards.
  • Power with a standard 9V @ 100mA pedal power supply (not included). No need to run aseparate power adapter or free up a high-current power port.

ILLUMINE will be available in late August at an introductory price of $379 for a limited time with an ultimate MSRP of $479.

While the Yamaha name is famous in circles beyond the guitar world, they’ve made first-class guitars since the 1960s. And while they don’t unleash new releases with the frequency of some larger guitar brands, every now and then they come down the mountain with a new axe that reminds us of their capacity to build great electric 6-strings. In 2015, Yamaha introduced the first generation Revstar. With a handsome aesthetic inspired by the company’s motorcycle racing heritage, the Revstar combined sweet playability and vintage style touchstones. This year, Yamaha gave the Revstar an overhaul—including body chambering, updated pickups, and new switching. What’s impressive is how these alterations enhance the already impressive playability and versatility of the original.
