With Yamaha's detailed stereo grand piano sound -- plus an extensive palette of 500 more sounds, tons of on-board learning tools, and inspiring auto-accompaniment rhythms and styles -- the 88-key Yamaha YPG-535 Portable Grand keyboard makes practicing piano great fun.

Packed with bells and whistles, yet incredibly easy to use, the YPG-535 has a "Portable Grand" button that takes you back to Yamaha's stereo-sampled, room-filling grand piano sound with just one touch. From there, you can easily layer sounds, split the keyboard, jam along with built-in Styles, see the chords and notes you're playing on-screen, follow Yamaha's built-in lessons, and even record yourself with the 6-track sequencer. The Graded Soft Touch keyboard is gently semi-weighted and is easy for beginners to play -- just choose one of three settings for touch-sensitivity. Best of all, this full-size, 88-key keyboard fits your home and your budget.

Like Learning to Play on a Grand Piano

While the YPG-535 has a ton of fantastic instrument sounds, the centerpiece of this and all Yamaha keyboards is the lush grand piano. As the maker of some of the world's finest acoustic grand and baby grand pianos, Yamaha creates digital instruments that stand above the competition. The stereo-sampled grand piano is lifelike and rich, and it's reproduced beautifully on the YPG-535's built-in stereo two-way speaker system. To add to the authentic piano experience, the YPG's 88-key Graded Soft Touch keyboard recreates the action of real piano keys in a lightweight, portable package. Plug a Yamaha FC4 sustain pedal in for dynamic damper effects, and you've got complete and authentic control over your music.

The Yamaha Education Suite: Learn At Your Own Pace

Making use of the YPG-535's large, highly visible LCD screen and three lesson modes, the Yamaha Education Suite, or Y.E.S., presents an easy-to-understand and effective learning system. Choose one of the YPG-535's 30 internal songs (another 70 are included on CD-ROM) and the notes are presented on a keyboard and music staff right in front of you. Next, choose one of the lesson modes: "Wait Mode" stops song playback until you play the correct note; "Your Tempo Mode" slows playback down when you play incorrect notes, so you can learn at your own pace, but start to get a feel for rhythm; "Minus One Mode" plays a song with one part removed, so that you can play along with the other elements of the music -- think of it like piano karaoke, except you choose what part to play. These three modes follow a natural progression, each building on an ability mastered in the previous mode, and each lesson has seven levels of increasing difficulty to push those abilities even further. An automatic grading function provides you with honest feedback on your playing. There's even a chord dictionary for familiarizing yourself with common chordal voicings and intervals, with each chord being displayed in name and as notes on the LCD musical staff. Even if you're planning on eventually studying with a teacher, the Y.E.S. will give you a head start.

Six-Track Recorder: Compose Your Own Music

The ability to sight-read notation will have you understanding music in a different way, so it'll only be a matter of time before you'll want to start writing your own. For the budding Bachs, Beethovens, or Sufjans out there, the YPG-535 has a six-track sequencer built right in. Record a chord progression, then layer melody, countermelody, harmony, or whatever you like on top. Experiment with combining different instruments in one song -- the YPG-535 has 500 beautiful sounds to select from, including organs, woodwinds, strings and even drums and guitars. Save your favorite work by uploading to your computer, or use the YPG-535's USB storage device port to connect an external hard disk or thumb drive.

Features:

- Lightweight 88-key digital piano with Yamaha's Graded Soft Touch action
- 500 voices, including Yamaha's XGlite/GM soundset plus Sweet! and Cool! voices
- "Portable Grand" button for one-touch access to the Yamaha piano sound
- Split and Dual voices: Layer two sounds or split the keyboard
- Hundreds of built-in auto-accompaniment styles to play along with -- plus download more via USB
- Record your own music with the built-in 6-track sequencer
- Built-in Interactive Lessons with "Your Tempo" mode
- Backlit LCD shows you musical notation, chord names, and more
- Matching stand included
- Sustain pedal included
- Power supply included
- Matching stand included

With on-screen notation display, interactive lessons, and the sound of a real acoustic piano, the Yamaha YPG-535 is a wonderful introduction to the piano. The inviting feel, the ease of use, and the beautiful grand piano sounds will make learning a joy, while the integrated recorder will have you well on your way to becoming the next world-famous composer. Music lessons and a fine instrument are two of the best investments you'll ever make, and both can be found in one keyboard: the Yamaha YPG-535.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (58 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "All Aboard!"
Sound: The Live! Grand Piano is about as realistic a sound as you can get. The panel sustain and the sustain pedal are two distinct, yet practical effects. Though there are nearly Five hundred other great voices, personally I am in love with the Sweet! Soprano saxophone.. Looks like Kenny G is out of a job. It has instruments that I had never heard of, never thought existed, and never thought that anyone would actually be able to play. Awesome. Feature: So.. I actually have the YPG525.. which is virtually the same thing.. so.. The survival kit is extremely useful. Sustain pedal = rad. There's also a cloth to place over your keys when you're not face-melting (and when you are face-melting, it can be used a cape..(yes, like a super hero)). Pitch Bender with adjustable range for all you techno freaks out there. I would suggest buying a USB Flash Drive for it if you intend to record on the User Song feature. Though each song has 5 tracks (and an accompaniment track which is virtually useless because the styles and easy song arranger sound so generic), With only 5 songs, space fills up quickly for the creative soul. The Effect Banks can be invaluable if you are playing a song with multiple instruments involved. Built-in metronome (of course). The only thing I really wish that it could do would be to change time signatures in a recording without having to go to another track. The hammerlock keys provide a good transition for anyone preparing to move from the traditional button-push keyboard to the full on Grand Piano. Ease of Use: I've had two keyboards before this one, and I must admit that this is definitely the best yet. Although I knew the basic principles of User Song recording before, I'm sure with a little time in the manual, one could easily learn how to successfully use the instrument. I still haven't been able to download music from the net due to the fact that you have to pay for it (of course). Quality: It looks very state of the art. Dust doesn't even gather well on it. It's quite a large board with 88 keys and due to that, I have banged it on walls and door frames lugging it around, but it just keeps on trucking. I wouldn't be surprised if I dropped it and it still worked. Value: I'll say that it's definitely worth the buy. Manufacturer Support: I had no need for support, but Yamaha sent a DVD detailing all of the aspects of the keyboard anyway! How's that for support? The Wow Factor: It does look pretty awesome. In a dark room with just the blue screen lit up. pretty inspirational. I also like the clicking wheel on the right... I don't know why. I just do. Overall: I've been quite thoroughly satisfied with this board. I would be pretty much lost without it. If you've been playing for a while and are looking to step up your game a bit, but you don't have the type of budget that allows you to buy a $1500 keyboard, then this is definitely for you. Intermediate players are probably best fit for this board, though anyone can use it. Wish it had more tracks, and the styles sound kind of outdated (which is to be expected when trying to define a genre in one pattern), but it makes up for those with the number of instruments, sound quality, and sheer beauty.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Excellent keyboard for the price!!"
Sound: The sound is very good, however, the gtand piano sound is close but not equal to the sound of an actual grand piano. Perhaps it is my hearing, but I do not notice difference in the tones between the various types of grand piano. I really like the flexibility of the various instruments that can be created. However, just like any electronic instrument, the tone quality is not quite as full as the real instrument. It is well worth the purchase price and is very enjoyable to play. Feature: Included foot pedal. It is as useful as the foot pedal on the ral piano. Ease of Use: The manual is very clear. Due to the complex sounds this instument can and will produce, there is going to be a significant learning curve before one is capable of utilizing all of hte features. It will take a concentrated effort to utilize all of potentila this keyboard offers. Quality: The product appars to be extremely well made. There were no noticible defects on arrival and it was easy to assemble -- the instructions were very clear. I use it to learn and practise grand piano all of hte time, saving the older real grand for playing once I have mastered a piece. One of hte major reasons for purchasing this keyboard was to be able to continue studying and practicing while I am traveling in my motor home. It is a littel bulky, but manageble. I did not want anything less thatn a full 88 key keyboard. Value: YES!!! Manufacturer Support: I have not had any experience dealing with the company to date. The keyboard is functioning perfectly, so servie has not been required. The Wow Factor: The keyboard is very attractive and has good tone quality in itself. I have not had the opportunity to hook it up to external speakers so do not know if the tonal quality would be satisfactory if utilizing external speakers. Overall: I will use this keyboard until I wear it out. I liked the 88 key keyboard and the price was reasonable for this unti. I had two goals in purchasing this keyboard: 1. An instrument that could be used for learning and practice; 2. an instrument that I could use when traveling in my motor home. It has met both of these objectives with flying colors.
Style of Music: Learning all
