Yamaha PSR-E223


$150.00 Released April, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Enough options to be interesting but not so many to be confusing, ideal for beginners. Built-in metronome gives sharp, clear ticks that help you keep time. Transposing and octave settings are easy to use and versatile.

The Cons:AC adapter is sold separately, which means going through lots of batteries until you can find one. Not touch sensitive, can't really practice subtleties in your performance. Hard to see the black-on-black markings above the keys.

The PSR-E223 is a 61-key portable keyboard from Yamaha that offers a step-down from the company's PSR-E323 model. Featuring a built-in tone bank of 375 high-quality instrument voices with an additional 100 rhythmic backing tracks, this model includes 61 full-sized keys with 32-note polyphonic capabilities.
