The Yamaha YPT-255 portable keyboard offers a highly enjoyable playing experience. Combining solid build quality, a wide range of instrument voices to choose from and an intuitive interface, the YPT-255 is a fantastic and affordable instrument that everyone will enjoy.
Easy to use
The 61-non-weighted organ-style keys have been laid out to encourage flowing movements up and down the keyboard. Just above the keyboard lies a host of buttons that set out in easy to navigate sections, which gives you quick-access to the plethora of instrument voices, songs and effects that lie within. Thanks to Yamaha's excellent tone generating technology, there is a huge selection of 372 high quality, natural sounding voices to choose from - including a stereo Grand Piano and 13 drum/SFX/SE kits.
No matter what style of music you're playing, there's a voice to match it perfectly. For times when you wish to practise/perform along with a piece of music, there are 100 accompaniments to select from, again giving you a vast library to play along with. The Yamaha YPT-255 comes complete with 9 reverb settings and panel sustain.
Built in lessons
The YPT-255 keyboard is ideal for those just starting out with the inclusion of the Yamaha Education Suite (Y.E.S) which provides fun and interactive personal tuition, allowing you to play along to 102 built-in songs and learn musical notation from the chord dictionary.
The YPT-255 offers an impressive range of voice settings that includes 371 XGlite voices and a sound effect kit. The LCD clearly displays voice settings, sound effects, metronome, tempo range (11-280), transpose (-12 to 0, 0 to +12), tuning and many other modes.
The transpose and tempo functions make it easy to accompany pieces written in different keys and performed at different speeds. The YPT-255 is fully compatible with GM and XGlite, and features a multi-fingering preset, OTS (One Touch Setting) and style control preset (into, main x 2, fill-in, ending).
The keyboard has 2 x 2.5W amplifiers, linked to 2 x 12 cm speakers, delivering a balanced sound that is ideal for use in homes, schools and colleges. The YPT-255 is truly portable weighing in at only 4kg, powered by either an adapter or batteries to deliver great sounds on the go.
