I've owned numerous Yamaha keyboards, starting with a PSR-640 a number of years back. Most of my playing these days is piano, but the YPG-535 does so much more. I actually had the 635, and "downscaled" to the 535 not because there was anything wrong with it, but that years of playing and typing leave me with a touch of repetitive motion issues. The graded touch of the 535 keeps me playing and loving it. Grand Piano sound is incredible, especially for the price. Sweet sounds are also excellent. The only feature I wish these Yamahas had is a true line out. As it is they make the headphone jack double as a line out. It's a bit noisier for recording purposes for that reason. Other than that, you want 88-keys, vibrant, yet softer touch keyboard, and all the sounds most folks need, pick yourself up a YPG-535.

I bought this piano TODAY and felt the need to come write a review and state why I am taking it back. First and foremost--everything about this piano is exactly what I wanted. It is easy to figure out, the piano sounds are absolutely beautiful, and I love all the extra features. HOWEVER. The left speaker rattles on low notes--badly--and it starts all the way up at A below middle C. I know the speaker isn't blown because I just bought it brand new... so this must mean that the speakers just aren't strong enough to support the actual instrument. Literally, you have to turn the piano down to about 25% in order to get rid of the rattling, and that's just too quiet for me. I'm incredibly disappointed because I loved everything else about this piano, but if I can't jam out, what's the point? I read about this problem on another review and bought the piano anyway, thinking it wasn't a big deal. But after playing it for the last 2 hours I just couldn't take it anymore. So bummed :(

Great Piano at a Great Price

By Joe M.

from Las Vegas, NV

Comments about Yamaha YPG-535 88-Key Portable Grand Piano Keyboard:

It feels and sounds great. I didn't think the speakers would sound very good, but was pleasantly surprised. Learning to play again after several years has been made easy by the song-training program that comes with the keyboard. The buttons and navigation are intuitive which makes it quick and easy to customize sounds, songs, chords, and play multiple instruments simaltaneously either together or split keys. The stand that comes with it is very sturdy as well. I don't advise moving it around alot, but it doesn't budge at all when I play so that's nice. If you're looking for an electric piano for home use on a hobby level, this is the way to go.

AMAZING KEYBOARD & GREAT PRICE

By Luella

from Virginia

Comments about Yamaha YPG-535 88-Key Portable Grand Piano Keyboard:

Bought the Yamaha YPG535 in March doubting that I would like it after reading some of the negative reviews about the volume being too low, etc., but, I decided to give it a try, with the price being so low. I owned a Thomas 294 Organ for 30 years which had all the bells and whistles. To say the least, I am amazed at the precision electronics that this keyboard is. I read the Owner's Manual for adjusting the volume controls to loudness desired and it is quite loud. The voice sounds are very realistic. It sounds fantastic through my professional sound system also. There are a great variety of instrumentations & loads of features that are too numerous to mention. I just keep finding more & more as I go through the Owner's Manual. This keyboard has opened up a whole new world of playing enjoyment for me the last three months. I am no longer a doubtful buyer, but a completely happy one that I made the decision to get this keyboard. Without regret, I just donated my Thomas Organ to charity this week.

Awesome

By KIM

from huntsville, AL

Comments about Yamaha YPG-535 88-Key Portable Grand Piano Keyboard:

I've only had this for a week now. I can't find anything I don't like about it. I currently also have a Yamaha Electone organ that's about 30 years old now. It still works flawlessly! That's Yamaha quality you won't find anywhere else. I've also had a couple of Yamahas 61 key machines. I kept "running" out of keys on the short versions. I needed a full keyboard I could afford. The YPG 535 fit the bill. I know I'll have a good experience and a good time with this unit. YAMAHA ROCKS!

Genuinely Impressed and an oustanding value

By David Scott

from Lexington KY

Comments about Yamaha YPG-535 88-Key Portable Grand Piano Keyboard:

I must admit that I was a bit skeptical of the sound and tactile quality of this digital piano, given the price point and my son's piano teacher's recommendation for a P-105. I am so very happy to have jumped on this deal because it offers a more immersive learning experience for him than the P-105 would have. This model was definitely designed for the novice student because of the feature set and overall design of this digital piano and the ease of system operation. It has been a lot of fun for my 8 year old son to learn who to build songs and assign sound patches to them. I really have no negative comments on this dig. piano. For less than $500, you get a Yamaha branded sustain pedal (Note that there is the only pedal jack on the rear of the digital piano.) Also, in lieu of MIDI ports, there is USB port meant for interconnection with a PC. The CD that came with the digital piano has quite a few programs and data to run on your PC.

THIS IS MAC-COMPATIBLE. And does a LOT more than I thought. :)

By Sean Courtney

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Yamaha YPG-535 88-Key Portable Grand Piano Keyboard:

First and foremost, I wanted to get this review in because this is a fairly old keyboard, from 2007. It comes with PC drivers, but not Mac drivers. If you go to Yamaha's web site and look for drivers for this instrument, you will get Mac drivers that only work on older, pre-Intel PowerPC Macs. However, if you just look for Yamaha's general USB drivers, you'll get Mac drivers that WILL WORK on the latest Macs, so yes, you can use this keyboard on your brand-new iMac, MacBook, etc. on GarageBand et al; I've done it. And really, this is a great unit. If you like assembling IKEA furniture, the included stand is a DIY-put-together job, so I was thrilled. :) Sustain pedal is included, which is great -- because I could never understand people who have keyboards without 'em -- but the pedal itself is kind of lame, one of those flat plastic thingies; I actually invested $15 in another real piano-style sustain pedal that works even better. The sounds are great, and the library of voices included is obscenely huge. So many possibilities! Beware, though, if you buy this brand-new -- you will be taking apart a buttload of cardboard! Took me three trips to bring it all outside for recycling!

from Valdosta georgia

Comments about Yamaha YPG-535 88-Key Portable Grand Piano Keyboard:

This piano is so amazing. I am proud of my new keyboard. I love the sound eps when I connected it to my 90watt amplifier. Great sound. I am recommending this to anyone. I ,ve been playing my upright piano for years requiring tunings. Now my keyboard has the fullest sd better than an upright piano. I congratulate the engineers who created this electronic masterpiece. It will keep me happy during my retirement, and keep my wife entertained. The price is.very affordable too.

Versatile - Great Sound - great value

By Bradford Siegel

from Portland, Maine

Comments about Yamaha YPG-535 88-Key Portable Grand Piano Keyboard:

I've been working with this keyboard for a few months now. I use it for gigs and rely heavily on the midi file capability it offers to provide a full band sound I need for my performances. Strongely recommend for home or gig use. I have loaded hundreds of files onto a thumb drive and simply plug and play. The LCD screen is bright and readable in most any lighting conditions. As you might expect, the piano sounds are superb and I prefer the grand piano sound for most of my work. In addition, I'm a fan of the growl sax and "Roto Organ" which offers a classic Hammond B3 sound that is remarkable. For an 88 key instrument it is light and easy to transport. My only worry came from a freak issue with the LCD screen when it inexplicably malfunctioned after a few uses. However, Guitar Center was quick to recitify the situation with a replacement unit and all is well. I've since talked with a technician and have been assured that is was a very rare occurance. That said, I will be overly cautious about exposing the unit to extreme temperatures. Bottom line: Great sound and a great value!

Exceeded expectations

By Judith Cohen

from Oakland, CA

Comments about Yamaha YPG-535 88-Key Portable Grand Piano Keyboard:

We purchased this for our grand-daughter, a guitar student who really wanted to play keyboard. It has just been a few days, but we are all impressed with the quality & versatility of this one. I selected it online, without seeing it first, & was kind of shocked when I picked it up at the local store & saw the large size and heavy weight of the box! It turns out that most of the boxed weight is from the stand that it comes with, which is quite sturdy, so that is actually a plus.

who needs the speakers?

By Krona Music

from Hamptons, NY

Comments about Yamaha YPG-535 88-Key Portable Grand Piano Keyboard:

If everything is perfect except for the on-board speakers (which admittedly are a bit small for the output), why not just use headphones? I can't see why any serious keyboardist would care about the speakers anyway -- most of the time the keyboard is connected via mixer to amplified stage speakers. You certainly aren't going to perform to a 50,000 seat arena with on-board speakers. Absurd.

By good for the price

from San Diego, California

Comments about Yamaha YPG-535 88-Key Portable Grand Piano Keyboard:

i've been playing it for 3 weeks and i like it a lot, but i just found an annoying noise in the left speaker when you play it in high volume some notes, i dont know if its the same with every keyboard, and i found that i need more polyphony because some sounds dont last when playing long phrases of classic pieces, so you should check if 32 polyphony is good enough for you first.

Good purchase. Happy with product.

By JAYO VERA

from Miami, FL

Comments about Yamaha YPG-535 88-Key Portable Grand Piano Keyboard:

I bought this to replace an older Casio Privia. My family has been bugging me about this for a while and I wanted to get back to playing. This keyboard fits our needs nicely...with 88, full-sized weighted keys, it feels and plays just like a real piano. The speakers are not too powerful but with the 1/4" jack output, I can run to an amp if I really want to crank it up or into an audio interface for direct recording. The MIDI Out on the rear allows me to use it as a simple controller keyboard for any virtual instruments. After formating a dedicated Flash Drive a was able to download hundreds of MIDI files and able to play them nicely on this keyboard with the option of deleting the chanels I did not like from the original songs. Great for learning. This keyboard has excellent sounds. The choir voicings sound nice, the strings sound amazingly real, and the vibraphone patch is one of the best I've ever heard. Really happy I bought this keyboard. I bought it refurbished with a very tiny scratch that is not even noticeable at a great price.

Best Ever!!!

By Ivanii Palucho

from Washington, DC

Comments about Yamaha YPG-535 88-Key Portable Grand Piano Keyboard:

First off, I bought this to replace an upright piano I gave away, and to possibly replace an organ we got as a gift. I also wanted something I could use in my recording studio, or at band rehearsals. This keyboard fits the bill nicely...with 88, full-sized weighted keys, it feels and plays just like a real piano, and that's important to the keyboardists who come over to record with me. With a 1/4" jack the output can be run to an amp for rehearsals, or into an audio interface for direct recording. Finally, the MIDI Out on the rear allows me to use it as a simple controller keyboard for any virtual instruments I'm using in my audio workstation. Best of all, it has some of the best sounds I've ever heard in an all-in-one keyboard...the acoustic pianos are gorgeous, the "jazz organ" is a more-than-passable Hammond B3 clone, there's a pipe organ, two electric piano patches (based on the Fender Rhodes and Wurlitzer, from what I can tell.) The choir voicings sound nice, the strings sound amazingly real, and the vibraphone patch is one of the best I've ever heard. Really happy I bought this keyboard! Would've liked to have paid less than I did for it, but this sort of quality isn't usually going to be found in the lowest-cost tier

Best piano for value ever

By Sharon Koepnick

from Reno, Nevada

Comments about Yamaha YPG-535 88-Key Portable Grand Piano Keyboard:

This is a wonderful piano with the graded hammer action. My son says it feels more like playing a piano than a keyboard and that is what we wanted. This piano sounds wonderful and it is a very good quality. You will not find a better deal. I am also very impressed with the customer service and the website. I got very very fast shipping.

Great Learner Keyboard

By JEFF EHRENHART

from Casper Wyoming

Comments about Yamaha YPG-535 88-Key Portable Grand Piano Keyboard:

I used to play professionally in a band and always played Roland boards. With that being said I didn't want to spend too much money as this board was primarily for my children to learn to play piano. Since they are just starting I wanted to purchase a cost effective option and that is just what I got. This board has some pretty good samples and sounds pretty good. Great board for learning to play and the casual player. Would recommend for these purposes.

Just got this keyboard yesterday, and so far I am very impressed with it's capabilities. I'm still learning all the features available. Love the bass tones on this piano. Feels very much like playing an acoustic piano, with better sound. This piano will be perfect for the outdoor wedding I have coming up.
