Wonderful!!! Champaign Color!!!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Yamaha YPG-235 76-Key Portable Grand Piano (Electronics)
When I purchased this keyboard I thought that it would be good, but it exceded my expectations tremendously! The color is amazing, however the piano sound is exsquisit. The keys are silent, in my opinion, compaired to cheep Casio keyboards. The graded soft touch is one of my favorite features in an electronic keyboard, and though the keys are not weighted like the more expensive models it suffices for my purposes.
I can only comment on the piano and celesta sounds because they are the tones that I work with most often - and they are both sound amazing through the built in speakers, in my personal opinion.
The included music stand is also a plus it is much better than those included with some other keyboards.
The consule is not overloaded with controls like a synthesizer it is relativly clean. I also like the square and rectangular buttons which have a classic look. It doesNOT have a sampler feature, for which I have no use anyway.
As a large person I am not a fan of the X-stands - I wory I will tip them over. I like the platform stands (the ones like tables). They usually can hold instruments that are much heavier than this one and have a lot of leg room.
I purchased the Yamaha pedel for this model as well as the AC adapter. The sustain pedal works great, but it does'nt support partial peddling.
In my personal opinion this is the best keyboard that you can buy in this price range - for using as a piano simulator without the need for tons of features.
Word of Caution: Yamaha products usually sell the AC adapter seperatly - its not expensive though!
