Product Description

The YPT230 Package contains everything you need to get started; including a Pair of Closed-Cup Headphones, a Single-Braced X-style Keyboard Stand, and a Power Supply. The YPT230 offers pure playing pleasure for both beginners and experienced players! The YPT-230 features 385 natural sounding voices, including Stereo Grand Piano, 371 XGlite voices, 13 drum kits and a sound effect kit. The YPT-230 also has 100 accompaniment styles and 102 built-in songs. The keyboard also has a rich Reverb effect that adds concert-hall ambience to any performance. Use the Portable Grand button to instantly call up an authentic stereo grand piano sound. One dedicated button brings up a great sounding piano, stunningly rich and authentic in its sound and exceptionally responsive to your playing touch, as well as setting up the keyboard to play as a piano. In addition to the 102 songs mentioned above, the YPT230 also has auto accompaniment styles that follow your playing. Simply select a style of music from the 100 built-in Styles (example Rock), play a single note or chord on the left side of the keyboard and play your melody on the right side. The YPT230 will create a backup band (bass, drums, strings, guitar etc.) and follow you through the song. You can play your songs and try different genres of music. It's both fun and entertaining. The music pathway to your computer and the Internet is MIDI. It's the way that keyboards communicate with computers. And because the YPT230 is both General MIDI (GM) and XGlite compatible, you have access to thousands of MIDI song files on the Internet. The YPT-230 Package is a great value, which includes the power supply, plus a keyboard stand and a pair of headphones.

Turned out to be perfect for me. I love to play Bach and other baroque composers, so since they wrote for harpsichord and fortepiano (fewer keys than modern pianos), I can play everything they wrote on this 61-key Yamaha right here in my tiny apartment. This model has all the rhythm choices and instrument voices you could want without being so automatic that it feels like a toy. The headphones are a bonus when there's ambient city noise or it's late at night. Other reviewers had difficulty with the stand, but they must have assembled it incorrectly. The keyboard is designed to rest atop the crossbars, not fit into the stand in any way. Try sliding the rubber sleeve supports in or out on the crossbars to balance the keyboard properly atop the stand. Also, make sure you have the height adjuster knob facing away from you as you sit at the keyboard and that the wider ends of all crossbars are facing toward you (measure the screw-hole to end distance if you have to). This will give you enough legroom when you sit at the keyboard. The two longer bars rest on the floor, of course, and the two shorter ones support the keyboard.

Buying the whole package with stand and power supply is the right choice: you have everything you need to start playing in no time.

I like this keyboard. I got it here for only $129. Walmart has a lessor model without the stand, headphones, or AC power pack on special for about the same price as this one. Excellent product. Excellent value buy.

BUT...A few details should be pointed out that may make a difference to some shoppers. First, the bundler fails to mention the stand is generic and must be assembled differently in order to work with this keyboard. If you are not handy or do not understand the directions given here by another buyer for how to modify assembly so the stand fits, you may want to subtract the stand as a factor for choosing this particular bundle.

Second, I've registered a lot of products on line and none, even minor brands, limited me to online registration and then required so much time to do it. Registration is not straight forward and simple as you might expect. Be sure to enter the entire address as presented in the manual, or you will get goofy results, a demand for email and password. Try to register and you get odd rejections such as my favorite, "your email address is not proper format" Huh? Is the program expecting Japanese? You must enter that long address. Also, the registration utility is unforgiving and unclear. No AI engine employed here! The site refers to this keyboard two different ways, PSR 233 and YPT 230. Have fun getting registration to accept your long product ID entry.

Third. A truth in advertising issue. We are told music and music lessons are included. What you are not told is they are online. You must successfully register to get any of the manuals, the music, anything. Never encountered that one before! Beware of buying a Yamaha music products open box, used, or refurbished.

I think this is a great keyboard. It has a wonderful sound, great features including the Yamaha Educational Suite (Y.E.S.) built in (includes these features: Listen & Learn, Timing, Waiting, Chord Dictionary).

I am betting that the other negative reviews of the stand are because it was not put together right. I had mine together wrong for a couple weeks then yesterday took the keyboard off and looked at it and noticed the leg that was farthest from me (behind the other) had the support rest on top with the longer of its two sides coming towards me. This makes sense because that leg is further "away". Then I looked at the other one (the leg crossing closer to me) and it also had the longer side of the top rest coming towards me making the little plastic tab stops not align from side to side. I took out an allen wrench unscrewed the one holding that rest on and then flipped it around so the little tabs on the ends align with the opposite support rest. Now the slot on the front underside of the keyboard fits in these tabs perfectly and holds the keyboard from sliding left right or front to back. It works great.

I do imagine the keyboard stand is a generic one as a much deeper keyboard could fit on it but the fact that it has extra depth does not impact it at all. I am glad it came with it!

My granddaughter is taking piano lessons on this keyboard. She is 6 and it is working well. My son-in-law is also teaching himself to play on it and the headphones comes in handy because he can practice after the kids are in bed at night and not risk waking them up.
The sound is good and the features are great. It was a good deal for the money.

The keyboard works well but beware that the stand sold with it does not allow the keyboard to lock in and as such moves around. This needs to be clearly stated in the product description but it was not

The actual keyboard is great...I don't understand why it's being sold with a stand that is clearly not meant for the keyboard. There is no way to make the stand fit in the keyboard grooves where the stand obviously is meant to sit.
