61 Key Keyboard-Great for beginners!

I bought this Yamaha keyboard on an impulse at GC one day because it was on sale for 225.00, and a bargain at that. I always wanted to have an affordable keyboard to play with and learn on, and this was a great choice. The URL I included is for the updated version Model PSR-E413, basically the same features.

It's light, easy to tote around and has an array of very cool sounds. You can add 5 user tracks recordable in the memory, which is great to use as a back up when I play my bass. Built in customizable drums and tempos. I have had this for a couple of years now and no problems at all, still plays as it did when I bought it. It can mimic a string or brass orchestra, or choir! You can program a vast arsenal of sounds with it to suit your mood or style of play. Keys can be programmed to be touch sensitive,with one key, a nice feature for those who can play. The piano sounds are pretty good too!

It does not directly connect to a midi port. The optional AC adapter comes with a cheap sustain pedal and adds about 35 dollars to the price, but needed. You don't want to run this on D batteries,lol.

All plastic construction, but seems durable if you don't beat it up.

If you are looking for a low priced keyboard that will take time to outgrow the features it offers, this may be a great choice for you. It's not a toy, but not exactly something you want to use on stage. Perfect to learn on and get a feel if keyboards are what you want to play without spending a bundle.
