OVERVIEW

PSRE253 with convenient accessories option.

The Yamaha PSRE253 is available with the Yamaha Survival Kit, which contains a power adapter that is perfect for your keyboard, a footswitch and a set of stereo headphones. You also receive a two-year extended warranty and more than $200 in rebate offers on great Yamaha instruments and accessories, along with learning software, additional songs and more. The PSRE253 is also available with all of this and a set of eight AA batteries. Select from the dropdown menu.

New portable with lesson program and great sound
The Yamaha PSR-E253 portable digital keyboard is packed full of great sounds and features, ideal for aspiring musicians who are just starting out. Use the on-board lesson feature, Yamaha Education Suite (Y.E.S.), to learn the 100 built-in songs, or explore the 385 instrument Voices and 100 Styles to create your own music. The Aux line input turns the PSR-E253 into a speaker system for your MP3 player so you can listen to and play along with your music collection.

385 high-quality voices
The PSR-E253 comes with a diverse array of 385 different voices. The grand piano voices in particular utilize stereo-sampled sounds with a superb feeling of presence. Players can enjoy reverb effects for the feeling of playing in a concert hall, and choruses that add extra breadth and resonance to the sound.

Lesson suite details
The lesson function offers a total of nine stages”three for the left hand, three for the right, and three for both hands, helping beginning players to practice the songs stored in the instrument. There's a scoring function that makes it fun to practice and improve, and a "waiting" function that adjusts the tempo to the person playing, pausing the accompaniment until the correct note is played.

Compact, portable design
Weighing in at around nine pounds, the PSR-E253 is light enough to take anywhere with ease. It can even run on batteries for live performances. Connect your audio player to the PSR-E253 and listen to, or play along with, your favorite music through the instrument's speakers.

      Comments about Yamaha PSRE253 61-Key Portable Keyboard:

      Bought this for my son. He enjoys it immensely. Super easy to use. Plug-and-play. I recommend buying the Yamaha survival kit that includes the much needed power cord otherwise you're running it off batteries. They are not supplied

        Comments about Yamaha PSRE253 61-Key Portable Keyboard:

        I am a lifelong bass guitar player who's always wanted to learn a little keyboard and this board is perfect for someone starting out. It has everything you need and nothing you dont. The only complaint I have is that the cheesy sustain pedal included in the survival kit only lasted me about an hour before it quit, but I planned on getting a better one anyway so it's no big deal.
