Yamaha. For many the name automatically brings to mind motorcycles and other things involving gasoline. But in fact the firm started in 1887 as one of the first manufacturers of what was then the king of musical instruments, the piano. Their logo is actually crossed tuning forks. Yamaha continues to be a major manufacturer of musical instruments of all sorts and related products. Any pop, jazz, rock, or related genre of music group could equip themselves entirely with Yamaha instruments with ease, play those instruments through a Yamaha PA, and record their music using Yamaha recording and signal processing gear. All of which makes it kind of hard to do a general search on eBay for Yamaha musical instruments.
