Product Description

Skip the piano lessons and teach yourself how to play on a portable keyboard like the Yamaha PSR-E243. Built-in lessons courtesy of the Yamaha Education Suite (Y.E.S.), along with hundreds of accompaniment styles and voices, 61 full-size keys, and USB and MIDI connectivity, make the entry-level PSR-E243 the beginning player's go-to keyboard -- whether you're buckling down to practice, or just jamming for fun.

Big Sounds from a Little Keyboard

This little keyboard can produce big, inspiring sound. Press the Ultra-Wide Stereo DSP button, and the built-in speakers will deliver a more spacious sound field -- helping your PSR-E243 sound like a more expensive keyboard than it is. Likewise, the dedicated Portable Grand button allows players to call up a realistic-sounding grand piano tone instantly. Plus, the PSR-E243 has plenty of preset dual/layer voices, like piano plus strings, and onboard reverb effects to make your performance larger-than-life.

Your Private Tutor

Y.E.S. -- the Yamaha Education Suite -- provides students with learn-to-play features that are both fun and helpful. In this model, the playback of the selected song is continuously adjusted to the tempo of your performance, ensuring that you don't feel rushed or discouraged while learning a new tune.

A Fun Practice and Performance Instrument

When you are ready to move beyond the basics, you can pretend that you're performing with a full band and play along with the keyboard's 100 auto-accompaniment styles, in 385 different voices. You can also use the PSR-E243 as a MIDI controller, or take advantage of its USB to Host connectivity and interface it with computers or iOS devices. Beginning-level pianists and budding producers will find this 61-key piano keyboard to be quite versatile.

If you have an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, you can use Yamaha's available iOS/Apple music apps to expand the keyboard's feature set. Connections to iOS devices require the optional i-UX1 USB MIDI interface cable, sold separately.

Your PSR-E243 is powered by 6 AA batteries or an optional power adapter, and a power-saving auto-off mode extends the keyboard's battery life.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
