Yamaha PSR-E253 61-Key Portable Keyboard
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 AUX IN jack 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.
A comprehensive library of high-quality Voices
The PSR-E253 comes with a collection of 385 different instrument Voices, including pianos, flutes, and guitars. The grand piano Voices, in particular, utilize stereo-sampled sounds with a superb feeling of presence. Players can enjoy reverb effects for the feeling of playing in a concert hall, and choruses that add extra breadth and resonance to the sound.
Nine-step lesson function (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 — that help beginners 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.
Compact, portable design
Weighing in at less than 9 lbs, the PSR-E253 is light enough to take anywhere with ease. It can even run on batteries for live performances when you're out and about.
Connect an external audio source to the AUX IN jack and enjoy playing along with your favorite songs
Connect your audio player to the PSR-E253 and listen to, or play along with, your favorite music through the instrument's speakers.
Use Master EQ to adjust the sound
The PSR-E253 is equipped with a preset Master EQ that allows you to adjust the nuances of the keyboard sound with settings such as Bright and Boost, making it easier to get exactly the sound you like.
Real-time backing band tracks
Accompaniment Styles add a "backing band" to your performances while you remain in complete control of chord changes and arrangements.
