Great-sounding, features-rich beginner's model.

Primarily geared toward learning musicians, the PSR-E243 offers the built-in Yamaha Education Suite, which enables students to teach themselves piano as well as built-in accompaniment styles that make it possible to sound like full bands. USB TO HOST connectivity makes interfacing with personal computers and Apple iPad/iPhone/iPod touch easy.

For more seasoned music makers, the PSR-E243 can also be used as a MIDI controller for computers and high performance sound sources for music software applications.

The PSR-E243 offers built-in speakers featuring the Ultra-Wide Stereo DSP button that creates greater separation and a more spacious sound. It provides players with 385 voices and 100 accompaniment Styles.

Extend and enhance your keyboard by connecting to your iPhone/iPad/iPod. Add virtual pitch bend, mod wheels and an arpeggiator with Yamaha's Sound Controller app. Record your children's music progress as video and MIDI with My Music Recorder. Requires optional accessory i-UX1 (#H99901), sold separately.

Additional features include a new power-saving mode and 61 full-sized keys. This affordable model also lets users play along with a band or use the dedicated Portable Grand button to instantly call-up a great sounding grand piano.

Note: This keyboard does not ship with batteries or a power supply. We enthusiastically recommend the Yamaha SK-B2 Survival Kit, which contains the appropriate power supply for your keyboard, as well as a set of headphones, a footswitch, an extended warranty, rebate coupons and helpful software. #H65815

    As reviewed by Kyrene Salcido on 1/27/2014

    I bought two of these keyboards for my kids 9 and 10. I wasnt sure if they would learn how to use the gadgets on the Keyboard but they have been learning something new each day. I would recommend for beginners for kids. I have had these keyboards for 3 weeks now and the gadgets help the kids learn how to play. I like the customer service at the store who ordered this for us. I never bought any type of musical instrument before so THanks Guitar Center for hiring people who really know what their talking about and are courteous to customers!!

  • PSR 243 Keyboard

    As reviewed by charles on 5/30/2014

    This a great starter Keyboard, I use it as a music producer for creating songs, music practice and recording. This keyboard is portable with it's use of **Battery power. If you use a mobile recording format (with this keyboard I record *on the Fly) great for beginners or a Pro. The price is right and worth it (:

  • Outstanding keyboard

    As reviewed by Kaylah on 7/7/2014

    This is an awesome keyboard which has many features, especially for the price. The sound is comparable to higher priced keyboards. It does not come with an adapter, but it states that in the description. Even at music stores, the adapters are not included and batteries can be used. Shipping was very quick and my 16 yo daughter just loves it!
