Perfect digital piano

By

YPG-535 Grand Soft touch

By

from Pearl River, Louisiana  -  Professional Musician

Good keyboard. Initial keyboard purchased on line and quality control issues with middle C not working or working part time were problematic. Getting support from the dealer and then from Yamaha were frustrating. Customer support should have a real human aspect. Instrument is used to accompany others and teach lessons as well as student practice.

I recorded 8 CDs with YPG-535!

By

from Springfield, IL  -  Experienced

The 6-track recorder makes it easy to arrange songs with layered/multiple sounds and accompaniment. The Styles library even has 160 preset beats. I wish there were more styles, but the ones that are there have served me well.
