Yamaha Keyboards – New Models For 2008

Yamaha has upgraded its popular YPG line with a new selection of piano-focused Yamaha Portable Grands, the YPG635, YPG535 and YPG235. The three models (which replace the YPG-625, YPG-525 and YPG-225) are targeted to all levels of players. The YPG-635 includes weighted Graded Hammer action; the YPG-535 and YPG-235 feature a new Graded Soft Touch action and piano-style keys, providing top-quality playing experiences. Yamaha’s renowned durability and portability make these models perfect for educational labs and houses of worship.

The 88-key Yamaha YPG635 is a weighted graded hammer action portable keyboard. Upgrades from the previous model include 64-note polyphony, a beautiful matching bench and an optional three-pedal unit, along with additional DSP (Digital Signal Processing) effects that enable realistic sounding Distortion Guitar and Rotary Organ. It also includes USB MIDI and USB to Device for removable storage, along with a high resolution Live! Grand stereo sample, song recorder, score and lyric display.

“The YPG-635 offers an affordable, feature-packed portable keyboard,” said Mark Anderson, marketing manager, Portable Keyboards. “It also boasts an authentic grand piano-like touch: heavy in the low end, feathery light in the highs, and amazingly responsive throughout.”
