      Electronic keyboards are good fun, we decided to invest in one and started looking closely at all the keyboards advertised on the Amazon website. We found the Yamaha YTP200 a reasonably priced keyboard at £56 The whole family are music lovers and keyboard music would be great to use for the odd sing along at family parties.

      This Yamaha model is a portable grand, it sits well in the corner of the lounge.Electronic keyboards are new territory to most of the family,they play a little piano but I am the only one who has ever played an electronic keyboard.

      There are 61 keys that aren’t touch sensitive, but I can still manage to

      express some feeling into my playing. A tone generation system has been developed by Yamaha, this gives the synthesizer sound and other electronically created sounds, the overall effect is impressive and if the reverberation is switched on it adds a lot of dimension to the music.

      The LCD unit is a little on the small side and not backlit which makes it a little difficult to read.

      There’s no electronic voice recording facility on this keyboard so if you wanted to compose and then transmit through the MIDI system you might need to choose another model.

      Overall there are 134 MIDI voices allowing a 32 note polyphony.

      An electronic panel is at your ...

      • fingertips, you can mix many instrument sounds, even ending up with an orchestra.

        The fully adjustable metronome feature is useful it helps keep time to the music.

        The Keyboard includes General MIDI compatibility,so hundreds of MIDI files and songs can be accessed via a MIDI In and Out connection through the Internet. The MIDI/ USB convertor that you will need to connect up the keyboard to your computer isnt included.

        Yamaha have an education suite installed on the keyboard, I play already so this is a feature I haven’t really needed to try out.

        It comes with a headphone socket,Ive been using headphones to practise in the daytime, it doesn’t disturb

        anyone then.

        This electronic keyboard comes with foot switch socket for sustain and has stereo speakers which give good sound and nice bass.

        Its a lightweight model at just under 10lbs, not a Rolls Royce of keyboards but good for any novice or learner. It has loads of very interesting features.

        The keyboard doesn’t come with an adapter, so you need to factor the cost of an adaptor into the cost.

        Im enjoying using the keyboard, you can make so much out of a piece of music and you can get so many different variations on a theme. All in all one of our better buys, but if we all get on well enough with it we may just decide to upgrade one model.
