Overview

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

Yamaha keyboard

By 

from channahon, il

Comments about Yamaha PSRE243 61-Key Entry-Level Portable Keyboard:

My daughter taught herself to play the piano. Since she was urning 16 and our piano was out of tune and too old to be retuned without breaking strings, we bought this for her birthday. She is playing it a lot. Great musical sounds and features. Adaptable for iPod. It takes batteries, but they don't last very long when playing a lot. Suggest buying a charger. That's the one thing it didn't come with.

All You Need is Love -- and a Yamaha E243

By 

from Dallas, Texas

Comments about Yamaha PSRE243 61-Key Entry-Level Portable Keyboard:

Hello. I am a preschool teacher who needed a basic keyboard to take into my classroom for "circle time." The E243 is perfect in every way: great size, great sound, and great price! I also purchased the survival kit containing the adaptor and pedal, both of which I knew I had to have. This was also a bargain! I won't be using all of the amazing features of this keyboard, but it is really good to know that they are there!! I am a loyal Guitar Center customer who has purchased various items (including a full-sized Yamaha digital piano) in Missouri, Florida, and now Texas. Every customer service experience has been STELLAR!!

Outstanding keyboard

By 

from Olympia, WA

Comments about Yamaha PSRE243 61-Key Entry-Level Portable Keyboard:

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!

Comments about Yamaha PSRE243 61-Key Entry-Level Portable Keyboard:

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 (:

Beginners

By 

from Tempe AZ

Comments about Yamaha PSRE243 61-Key Entry-Level Portable Keyboard:

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!!

Excellent Starter Keyboard

By 

from Baton Rouge, LA

Comments about Yamaha PSRE243 61-Key Entry-Level Portable Keyboard:

We purchased this for our 8-year-old for Christmas and he loves it. We enjoy how often he goes back to explore all the sound variations and options it gives him as he plays his lesson tunes. We got the stand and matching stool and the sustain pedal so he would have everything he needed but we found out it didn't come with the AC adapter so we're wearing out our first set of 6 AA batteries while we wait for the adaptor we found online.
