The Yamaha YPG-235 features 76 piano-style keys with Graded Soft Touch action, stereo piano sound, a built-in recorder, Pitch bend wheel and USB computer connectivity.

The Yamaha YPG-235 Digital Grand Piano is the perfect choice for the beginning keyboardist or anyone who’d benefit from a 76 key, lightweight, full featured portable keyboard with an impressive acoustic piano sound.

Power up the Yamaha YPG-235 Digital Grand Piano and start playing gorgeous sounding piano immediately! That’s just one of the many things you’ll love about this powerful, portable keyboard with it’s 12 watt, 2-way full-range built-in stereo speaker system. It’s just what you’d come to expect from Yamaha.

The Yamaha YPG-235’s 76 Graded, Soft Touch keys effortlessly flow up and down the keyboard enabling you to nimbly handle even the most intense musical passages with relative ease. In addition to the Yamaha sampled grand piano, there are a total number of 472 keyboard sounds along with 12 Drum/SFX kits.

Built-in auto-accompaniment provides 160 pre-set, popular music styles at the touch of a button and turn of a dial. Easy to access controls for INTRO, MAIN x 2, FILL-IN and ENDING are all there on the top panel and help lift your playing experience to new heights as your creativity takes flight. The selectable Full Keyboard Mode enables you to guide the auto accompaniment with your right hand (not just the left) so you can be free to play full-on piano with precise backing, a very nice feature.

Useful performing features such as Transpose and Tuning are easily selectable and changeable, and dedicated Tempo Tap and Adjustable Metronome buttons make navigating these controls as simple as tap tap tap!

Registration memory allows you to take a digital “snapshot” of your current setup (patch choice, accompaniment, tempo, etc.) and save it to one of 16 Registration locations located right above the keys for easy access. This makes it a cinch to select setups on the fly and arm you with a way to make a complete song/genre change with the simple touch of a button.

A big easy to turn data entry dial alongside direct numerical buttons and +/- enable quick and precise data entry while a big, backlit Custom LCD displays all the information and selections. A handy, built-in 6-track sequencer allows you to capture your performance and play it back or construct a multi-track song, complete with full-on accompaniment.

The Yamaha YPG-235 has 30 built-in songs (there’s an additional 70 on the included CD-ROM) to use together with the onboard Yamaha Education Suite. Seven levels of piano lessons guide you through a hands-on learning experience and automatically increases the value of this fantastic keyboard. A chord dictionary shows you how to play chords as well as tells you the chord you are playing.

You can connect the YPG-235 to a computer (Mac/PC) via the USB port to download additional songs, as well as make full use of the Y.E.S. Play your songs into the computer, edit them and send them via email to friends and family.

Included accessories are a sheet music rest and a songbook.

The Yamaha YPG-235 is light enough to carry to your next gig, and it looks and sounds awesome in your living room as well, enough to be labeled Yamaha. Power supply not included. Optional YSURVIVE4 recommended.

      Comments about Yamaha YPG-235 Digital Grand Piano:

      Awesome keyboard for the price. The keys are touch sensitive just like more expensive models, but with a soft touch. Great keyboard for younger or older players. Comes with a ton of sounds, built in songs, and a built in metronome. Don't forget to pick up the power supply. This is a real hands on product review by Sean@ Sam Ash Ontario.

                      This keyboard offers you so much for so little!!

                      This keyboard is perfect for beginngers or musicians who desire a more compact digital keyboard. There is a large sound bank to keep you busy or to give you options for creating music. There is a great learning tool if you're a beginner to help you practice and best of all.....it sounds great too! This keyboard sells itself and I would put up against any Casio keyboard on the market. The only way to know for sure is try it out yourself! I think you'll agree. It feels and sounds amazing considering how compact it is. Just remember to get a stand!
