Product Description

Style Name: Keyboard

YPG-535 features 88 Graded Soft Touch keyboard. All the best sounds are available at the push of button and recording virtuoso performances is simple with built-in recorder. The Yamaha Education Suite and USB connectivity (USB to Device) add functionality. Main features include USB MIDI, USB storage capability and high resolution Live! Grand stereo sample.

From the Manufacturer

Yamaha Portable Grand

High quality piano sound and piano-style box keys offer incredible value to the piano-oriented user.

The Yamaha Portable Grands have an easy-to-use panel, a wealth of piano-centric features including piano-style keys, Graded Soft Touch (GST) action with different levels of resistance and a high resolution stereo piano sample.

Computer Connectivity

This Yamaha Portable Grand comes with 30 built-in songs plus 70 more on an included CD-ROM and an interactive lesson system, divided into left and right hand parts, for learning them. In addition, you have the ability to connect to a computer via USB, download more songs from the Internet into the internal Flash ROM (PC only), and use all of the Yamaha Education Suite features to help you learn to play them.

Join The Band

With a stunning variety of Voices and Styles, Yamaha Portable keyboards open the door to a world of musical enjoyment. Simply select your favorite sound, pick a style of music, and these keyboards will follow your playing like an orchestra following a conductor!

Yamaha Education Suite

Yamaha Education Suite teaches you to play by breaking down songs into individual components, like pitch and rhythm, and reconstructing them once mastered. You can practice one hand of a song alone while the instrument plays along with the other. WAITING mode pauses the accompaniment until you play the notes indicated on the display. YOUR TEMPO mode monitors playing and adjusts the tempo according to your accuracy. MINUS ONE mode lets you play the piano part start-to-finish, and gives you a grade at the end.

Realistic Sounding Voices

Equipped with 361 XGlite voices. Included in this selection is stereo-sampled Piano, a selection of special voices including Sweet! Trumpet, Flute, Pan Flute, Soprano & Tenor Saxes and Cool! Voices including Galaxy Electric Piano, Organ and Rotor Organ.

6-Track Sequencer

Imagine capturing your student's first performance or writing and recording your own songs. With this Yamaha Portable Grand, you have the equivalent of a built-in multi-track recorder to record one or multiple instrument parts at a time and assign each part to a different track. Six tracks are provided to accommodate sophisticated melodies, chord accompaniment and rhythm parts

Full Keyboard Mode

This keyboard delivers on its piano theme with a special mode of fingering called Full Keyboard Mode. This allows the player to play the keyboard like a piano; for example a chord with the right hand and bass notes with the left. When using the accompaniment feature, the virtual band will follow these chords. Traditional portable keyboards normally require you to chord on the left side of the keyboard, in the bass section, which is foreign to most piano players. This Yamaha Portable Grand is also capable of this mode, for those who prefer it.

Expandable Music Database

Complete keyboard setups by song title. The keyboard selects an appropriate voice for the right hand melody, the correct musical style and the correct tempo. Simply call up a song title and start playing.

One Touch Setting (OTS)

Provides you with a recommended voice with effects for each Style. For example, on a jazz style OTS might be piano, for a Latin style it might be acoustic guitar and for a rock style it might be a guitar with overdrive etc.

2.0 out of 5 stars keyboard keys make a audible clicking noise when played December 27, 2010
By Vallie
Style Name:Keyboard
My husband bought this for me for Christmas as a surprise. He did a lot of research and certainly Yamaha digital pianos are very well made, and preferable as a rule. However he did see one comment that concerned him, but purchased it anyway. Turns out his concern was valid. The keyboard, while very good quality, is not the same bed as the upper end models (DGX 640) and when I played more classical pieces, the clicking noise of the keys was quite evident, and became annoying. This wouldn't be a concern to someone playing rock or jazz at a louder volume, or when listening thru headphones, or recording. But I play all kinds of music and it just wasn't acceptable. We went to a store and I played on various keyboards and this is when it became evident that the more expensive models, while still having a muted sound when depressed, was nowhere near as loud. I recommend that you try out the keyboard of any digital piano before buying online. It's a personal preference. We upgraded to the Yamaha DGX model (about $300.00) more and given the cost of these pianos, it's worth getting exactly what you want.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great so Far December 8, 2008
Style Name:Keyboard
Nice keyboard, nice sound, feels like a real piano and it's got all the keys. I like that it includes a nice, stable music rest, keyboard stand, footswitch and power adaptor.

Lots of features too: fun sounds, (drum, maracas, bongos, etc. plus sound effects like phone, ufo, dog barking, etc)

It has a super metronome which you can adjust the tempo of, set the number of beats per measure, adjust volume, etc.

It records your performance which is nice, so my piano teacher can play something she wants me to learn, record it, then I can replay that when I'm practicing.

More features, too many to mention... If you'd like to start with something smaller or something less expensiv, I'd check out a Casio keyboard. Casio CTK4000 Premium Pack with Power Supply, Keyboard Stand and Professional Closed Cup Stereo Headphones, Casio LK100 Lighted Keyboard with Premium Accessories Package (this is the first one I got)

First, let me say that this is a solid product for a very good price. It's highly portable, even once you set it up. I'm not sure how much it weighs, but I'm a 5'3", 95lbs person, and I can lift and carry this piano with a medium amount of effort. It's got a full keyboard, and has hundreds of different sounds effects, as well as a pretty good volume range and a jack that you can plug your headphones into if you want a little bit of privacy (although, you have to buy an adapter for your headphone jack).

With that said, the main reason I didn't give this product a full 5 stars is that when you press the keys, it's much more difficult to press the keys closer to the top than the bottom of the keys. This probably has something to do with how the spring mechanism for the keys were designed, and I'm not sure if this is a problem with all keyboards on electronic pianos. It has taken some getting used to and sometimes, I miss notes because of the pressure differential. Also, the keys are a little too easy to press for my taste, although some might like it. Lastly, when you turn the volume all the way up, there seems to be a little bit of distortion in the sound as if the speakers can't handle all the noise, and it's hard to hear individual notes. Of course, just turn the volume down to medium-high or lower, and you don't have that problem anymore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Keyboard - Great Value December 28, 2011
Style Name:Keyboard|Verified Purchase
My wife is a member of an informal trio with her as the pianist and two friends with violins. They have a wonderful time playing together and want to be able to share their joy with others, even if a piano is not present. She asked for a keyboard for Christmas and I complied.

This is a wonderful keyboard, and certainly does not have any clicking keys as one reviewer noted. While it cannot compare with her handmade Kawaii 6 foot 5 inch grand piano, it certainly is not a disappointment. Even her piano teacher, who is probably the best pianist on the island, is impressed with the quality of the keyboard, and of the music produced. The physical size of the keyboard matches that of the grand piano, so be warned that transporting it requires care and a larger vehicle than her small one. But I will be happy to carry it for her and I did buy a matching carrying bag.

There are many "voices" to the keyboard, and my wife loves to experiment with ones such as the clavicord. The built in metronome is also a very nice feature. The instruction manual is extensive, and she has been reading it with gusto. In fact, she spends as much time on the keyboard as on the piano these days.

It also provides the option to practice at other locations that do not have a piano. One of the violinists is in this category and is thrilled that practices can now sometimes be held in her home. Having the keyboard has opened up many new possibilities.

While the keyboard is certainly not in the same bracket as a good grand piano, you should not be disappointed with owning one. For the money, this is a wonderful value and we both highly recommend it. And by the way, while it was a Christmas present, it was rather obvious when it arrived and I was not able to keep it away from her using it. She has now been using it for 4 weeks, and finds out new features every day. She continues to love it.
