Customer Question
I just started at...

I just started at a new school as a music teacher. The Yamaha S08 that I inherited seems to be stuck with severe reverb on every sound. There doesn't seem to be a panic button. I worked fine earlier in the year, even though I didn't really know how to use it. I downloaded the manual, but I couldn't make that work. JD Struckmann - Music Teacher, Belfast CSD, Belfast, NY

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your S08? What have you tried so far?

A couple of days.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Instrument Expert to know before I connect you?

Oops, hit return too soon. Randomly pushing buttons and offering oblations to the keyboard gods.
