Yamaha Portable Keyboards
Most of the keyboards you'll find in this section use a 61-key manual, which gives them a great balance of range and size. They're small enough to pack up and take along without any worries, and at the same time, you won't feel like you're missing too many keys since you still have a good five dozen to work with. And although the key layouts are similar, make no mistake: there are more than enough differences "under the hood" to inform your decision-making from one board to another.
A good way to start is by thinking of your experience level. For instance, if you're a beginner, consider the PSRE243 61-Key Entry-Level Portable Keyboard for an affordable and easy-to-play option. Looking for a helping hand as you learn to play? Check out the Yamaha EZ-220; its lighted keys make a great teaching aid so you can build up your skills faster. Are you an experienced pianist looking for something with a classical sound? The NP-11 Piaggero Digital Piano could be the choice for you; it's a straightforward instrument that's focused on realistic piano performance, without any unnecessary bells and whistles.
The best thing about Yamaha portable keyboards is the freedom that they give you. There's no need to be tied down to your studio keyboard or living room digital grand; just add one of these well-built boards to your collection and you'll be ready to pack up and perform anywhere. They really embody what Yamaha is all about: solid gear that fits any budget and delivers consistent, reliable performance.
