Yamaha YPG-235 Review

These days, we are going to discuss the Yamaha YPG 235, the least expensive model of Yamaha’s Portable Grand line.

The YPG 235 is a portable entry level keyboard, which will come with seventy six touch responsive semi weighted keys, 500 built in sounds, 6 track MIDI recorder, and a lot of useful features for entertainment and learning.

The computer keyboard is an extremely popular choice among players that are new to start learning on.

And we are going find out in case it is a great choice for that.


Yamaha YPG 235 key action

The YPG 235 uses similar Graded Soft Touch action as the YPG 535, which means you get exactly the same feel and touch but with one octave fewer keys.

The keys are graded (heavier in the lower end and lighter in the high end) and touch sensitive (the harder you play, the louder the sound).




The display will show your current settings such as the selected sound, style, song, mode, transpose settings, tempo, etc.
