PSRE253

This product is no longer available.
The Yamaha PSR-E253 Portable Keyboard is packed full of great sounds and features, ideal for aspiring musicians who are just starting out. Use the on-board lesson feature, Yamaha Education Suite (Y.E.S.), to learn the 100 preset songs, or take advantage of 385 instrument voices and 100 styles to experiment and create your own music.

The PSR-E253 diverse array of 385 different voices include pianos, flutes, and guitars. The grand piano voices in particular utilize stereo-sampled sounds with a superb feeling of presence. Players can also enjoy reverb effects for the feeling of playing in a concert hall, and choruses that add extra breadth and resonance to the sound.

Yamaha Education Suite helps beginners learn to play songs. The lesson function offers a total of nine stages - three for the left hand, three for the right, and three for both hands, helping beginning players to practice the songs stored in the instrument. There's a scoring function that makes it fun to practice and improve, and a "Waiting" function that adjusts the tempo to the person playing, pausing the accompaniment until the correct note is played.

The Aux Line Input turns the PSR-E253 into a speaker system for your MP3 player so you can play along or just listen, all for a very affordable price.

Features:

• 385 high-quality voices, including pianos, guitars, drums and orchestral instruments
• Nine-step lesson function (Yamaha Education Suite) helps beginners learn to play songs
• Compact, portable body
• Connect an external audio source to the AUX IN jack to enjoy playing along with your favorite songs
• Use Master EQ to adjust the sound to your preference
• 100 auto accompaniment styles provide real-time band backing tracks based on the chords you play
