If you're looking for a portable electric keyboard with authentic-feeling semi-weighted action, the Yamaha DGX230 should be a serious contender for your attention! With Yamaha's Graded Soft Touch keyboard, which offers more resistance on the lower notes just like a real acoustic piano, you'll be to cultivate a finer technique. The 76-key DGX230 comes with a vast database of different sounds for you to explore, and it's also preloaded with numerous accompaniment tracks, so you can practice your ensemble playing even when you're alone. The DGX230 may be the least expensive model in the Yamaha Portable Grand series, but it sacrifices little by way of functionality compared to instruments costing many times more.

A Weighted Action Cultivates More Subtle Technique

Yamaha's Graded Soft Touch design gives your playing experience depth and subtlety. The action is weighted more heavily on the bass end, just as on a real piano. On the higher end the action is slightly lighter, allowing your fast runs and chording to move effortlessly.

Rich Stereo Sound

The DGX230 offers true 2-way stereo sound with a separate woofer and treble cone in each 6-watt speaker, helping Yamaha's rich grand piano sound to come through. And when you need more low end, the onboard Bass Boost is there for you. The DSP onboard is Yamaha quality through and through, allowing all onboard sounds to be tweaked with the included Master EQ, Reverb, and Chorus functions. Want to practice in silence? Just plug in to the 1/4" headphone jack.

A Feast of Sounds and Backing Tracks

The DGX230 improves upon Yamahya's popular DGX220 with the expansion to 489 sounds and 160 musical accompaniment tracks. And if that's not enough, you can connect it to your computer via the USB port and download new sounds and tracks from Yamaha's internet Music Finder Service. The included software interface makes it easy! Want to get back to Yamaha's rich grand piano sound fast? Just press the Portable Grand button.

It's Also a Recording Device

In addition to the 30 included songs for you to play with or enjoy, the DGX230 also includes a sequencer with enough onboard memory to record 5 songs of your choice with up to six tracks of overdubs! It's not uncommon for musicians new to the keyboard to discover an inner composer they never knew they had -- so it's definitely a good to have a dependable way to record your ideas while you play!

Happy At Home, Happy At The Park

The functionality of this instrument doesn't trade off one bit on its portability. You can either plug in a standard 12V DC 2A wall adapter, or power it on-the-go with six D sized batteries. And with its 76-key size, the DGX230 is Yamaha's most portable Portable Grand keyboard.

Really A Perfect Instrument For the Beginner

All musicians learn differently, but the included Yamaha Education Suite software is a great way for beginners to study at their own pace. The Y.E.S. steps you through songs on the DGX230's big, bright LCD screen, displaying notes and chords to help you learn.

Features:

- 76 piano-style keys with Graded Soft Touch action

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (54 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Astonished!"
Overall: There are twelve amazing demo sequences pre-loaded on this instrument that blew me away. Nine of those demos have transcriptions in pdf format and cover different styles of music from rock to jazz waltz. The demos are really great sources for learning cool chord voicings, fills, transistions, melodies, etc. You can solo or mute the piano parts while you play along with the band.This instrument is amazing for the price and is ideal for anyone wanting to attain a higher level of comping skills and chord voicing knowledge. The tracks that I like are Against All Odds, BogiWogi, CntryPno, EpBallad, GospelRB, JazWaltz, JetSet, MBossa, MSwing, RockPno, Salsa, and TakeOff. I plan to import some other songs that I like that I have in midi format to play along with. I am simply amazed at the functionality for the price I paid. Really happy with this instrument.
Style of Music: brassy rhythm and blues

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A great deal"
Sound: It's hard to believe that a keyboard costing only $200 (which stand, PS, and headphones) could sound this good and have this good of key action. This is the same keyboard as the YPG-235 (the manual has both models on the cover) but at a much better price if you don't mind silver. I don't. Feature: stand, ps, headphones
Style of Music: country, blues
