All Products are new unless stated, and include a minimum of one year warranty.

(Includes 90 day money back guarantee)


The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Powerful Live Performance Features

The PSR-S970 Portable Workstation is perfectly suited for live performances, featuring two assignable controllers, a modulation wheel and two assignable foot pedal inputs for controlling voices, styles, effects and other functions in real time. The keyboard's all-new DJ Styles feature a collection of preset chord progressions, unlike standard Accompaniment Styles which require the left hand to continuously change the chord. This means that you can use both hands at once to play melody lines, use the live controllers, or trigger external audio with the Multi Pads during live performances.

High Quality VCM Effects

The PSR-S970 features a wide range of onboard effects, including EQ, Reverb, Chorus and more. The powerful digital signal processor (DSP) also has several effects with Yamaha's Virtual Circuitry Modelling technology. This innovative technology is able to simulate the effects of Compressors, Wah and Phasers at circuit level, giving you all the characteristics of real, high-end analog hardware in the digital domain.

Real Reverb & Real Distortion

The PSR-S970 also comes with the powerful Real Distortion and Real Reverb effects from Yamaha's acclaimed Tyros 5 keyboard. These realistic and natural-sounding effects add impressive depth and weight to your performance, whether you're adding only subtle warmth and ambience or hard, gritty distortion. The attractive user interface has an intuitive layout based on the design of conventional effects units and amplifiers, allowing you to effortlessly add, edit and remove effects parameters in real time.
