The new Yamaha PSR-E273 portable keyboard is a family-friendly keyboard that delivers quality features and performance well above its price range.
The PSR-E273 features 401 high-quality voices spanning all types of acoustic and electric instruments, including 17 drum and special effects kits in which different sounds play on different keys. You can choose the sounds of pianos, organs, the orchestra, electronic music, non-Western music too.
A new Quiz Mode on the PSR-E273 prompts players to repeat notes, simple melodies, or chords, giving feedback on correct and incorrect answers and turning ear training into a game-like experience. This expands the Yamaha Education Suite (YES) of features found in many Yamaha portable keyboards.
In the PSR-E273, these include note display for the 112 built-in songs (with a corresponding songbook available as a free download), modes to teach both pitch and timing, and the ability to pause song playback if the person playing along strikes a wrong note, resuming once the correct note is found. Another convenience is Duo mode, in which a teacher and student, or parent and child, can sit side by side and play the same range of pitches on either half of the 61-note keyboard.
Other important features include 143 auto-accompaniment styles, Smart Chord function, two kinds of recorders, a Song Recorder and Phrase Recorder that acts like a pedal looper, built-in speakers, metronome, headphone jack for quiet practice, and an 1/8-inch stereo mini input for routing a smart device through the speakers and playing along with your favorite recordings.
Yamaha does not include the power adapter with this portable keyboard, but it is available for purchase from Andy's with the Survival Kit option. The Yamaha PSR-E273 61-key portable keyboard is fun to play and very affordable to own. Call Andy's and get yours on the way.
