Worth the $750

By Silverhammer

from Highlands Ranch, CO

I use this piano at home for songwriting and jamming. It's a pretty good MIDI-equipped portable grand, with excellent piano tones for a keyboard with its price. I'd really go so far as to say it's the best workstation/piano under $1000. I love the Yamaha arranger software, so it's excellent for home composers as well. Unfortunately, it's a bulky keyboard for what is actually on it, and it only has one audio output and no extra headphone jack, so it's not particularly thrilling as a performance piano. I highly recommend it for new keyboardists, though, especially those with experience playing on an acoustic upright piano, as the weight and feel of the keys is as close as you can get to the real thing. Overall, the best portable grand you can buy for the price.

The Yamaha YPG Keyboard

By dckoreanboy

from Benicia, California

This keyboard is truly incredible. The feeling of a grand with the space consumption that is less than a verticle piano. This piano is incredible for people who can't afford the 1,000 to 500,000 dollars for a good grand piano. The plastic case however is not as strong as would be recommended so you should really think about getting a good case for this piano. However the plastic makes up for the lightness of this piano. This is an incredible instrument that I would buy anyday.

Top of the line portable

By ZodiacKiller

from Queens, NY

I was looking for a keyboard that had both excellent features and excellent sound quality and I found it in the YPG 625. The weighted keys feel just like an acoustic and the sound is some of the best I've heard. The recording and different voices top off this great portable. If you can't afford those $1,000+ pianos, get this.

I went into GC and played every Digital Grand they had - no one comes even close to the rich, natural sound and feel of a Yamaha... especially for this money. My folks were so impressed by it, that they bought one for themselves the very next day!


Great Keyboard

By Sethala Holden

from San FRancisco

I love the weighted keys of Yamaha YPG-625and they sound and feel just like grand piano! It's a great substitute for a piano if you want to save some space and money. I also like its many other instrument sound. But the grand piano feature and touch are by far superior.


Great Value

By Byron

from Hacienda Heights, California

I am a gigging musician for private parties, weddings, anniversaries, etc. so I was looking for an instrument with a realistic piano sound and keyboard feel. I found it with this instrument. It might be considered semipro because of its ?learn to play? features but I found it wonderful for the other things it offers. First and foremost, the Grand Piano sound was sampled very well . It is hard to hear the sampled split points and it?s not noticeable at all when playing. I love the feel of the keyboard especially when compared to some other digital pianos which I find to be either too stiff or too light. The split keyboard and layer functions are easy to use and make for a wonderful variety of sounds. I find the Cool and Sweet voices to be particularly outstanding especially the flute sounds which I like to layer with the piano. The rest are pretty much what you would get from the Yamaha PSR family of instruments but they can be useful at times. I do wish that it had MIDI In/Out/Thru jacks instead of just the USB to MIDI port. If you want a keyboard controller you may want to look elsewhere but for what I use it for it works very well. The built in 6 watt amp and speakers could be louder but I guess Yamaha figures that most people will use it when practicing and an external amp when gigging. It does fortunately have on output jack. What is really helpful is its 56 pound weight since I have carried ?portable? pianos that weighed a lot more. You should invest in a good case because the tradeoff for less weight is a light plastic body. Overall I love this keyboard and would purchase it again.


A Great Piano for a Great Price

By Kevin K.

from Terre Haute, IN

This piano is just amazing. This piano has outstanding sound, response, and plenty of features for a person looking for a piano under a thousand dollars. It has great looks and doesn't take up much space, which simply makes this piano the best.


Very nice all around keyboard

By Davek

from Lockport, NY

The yamaha YPG 625 has a great sound and great feel to it. It has very nice mixing capabilities making it fairly easy to creae your own song. Also the computer interface allows you to save your work to your computer or to a card so that your work wil not get lost.



By Diablo33

from North Attleboro, Ma

It's nice all around, although its pretty much the same as the YPG-225, just with more keys, and a lot more expensive. It is a keyboard that will stay with you, so that way your not gonna have to go out to the store to buy a new one everytime you get so much better. I like all the features on it.



By Ballad Lover

from San Francisco

This is the one. For those who are picky with sound quality (like me who grew up playing a grand piano) but want to stay under $1,000, this is by far the best. Keys hammer back like those of a real grand and the keys "sense" the intensity of the finger's push as if you were really striking the chords of a grand. Controls are intuitive. Sounds much better than the Casio PX575 in my opinion (as the latter's tones sound a little "supressed" probably due to the cloth covered speaker latches).


Enjoyable to play

By sonnetmom

from San Diego, California

I played this piano at my sister's house and I really liked the sound, and feel of the keys. I'm relearning the piano after a 30 year break and I can already tell the difference in my playing, depending on the Piano I use. I plan to buy one this week.


The best

By CurtFlirt

from Bronx, NY

Im at a the beginner level in piano, so i went searching for the best keyboard for less money that I could find. After a month of researching, reading reviews, and trying different keyboards. I realized that the YPG 625 had all the features and needs i wanted, that the other keyboards just did not have or were missing. The only flaw is the overall weight. plus it came with a free bench. Buy it.

Great Piano, Great Price

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

The YPG-625 is a great piano for players of all experience. It has all the features you'd want in a keyboard at a very affordable price. The weighted keys and the amazing sounds it produces makes it the best keyboard for under $1000. If you've been trying to find a great piano that's easy on your budget, go with this one.


I sound just like Van Halen! Jump!

By Hanabal Khaing

from USA East Coast

I can't believe how many effects this piano has. It can sound like anything. From Van Halen to Chopin, it does the job and does it well. The keys feel very good. The hammer action is incredible. The quality is great for the money! I also tried the save to USB flash drive feature and it works perfectly. I can import saved files directly to my mac, digital recorders, etc. I also discovered that it can transform the songs I save to the internal recorder or USB drive, into internal lessons with on screen music theory sheets that play automatically or wait until the student presses the right keys. And! And! There's more! The wood grain accents matches my living room decor! It looks beautiful! There also internal drums, violins, and many other instruments I intend to try. One of the features I use often is the dual effects playing. I can play organs and grand piano or any other combination of instruments at the same time! You have to try this out!


Great bang for the buck


from Cleveland Ohio

I play guitar mostly but wanna relearn the piano. Got a casio for Xmas, a 76 synth key. I did some research, talked to fellow musicians and started checkin' out some 88's. I took it back and got the 625 after looking at several brands and models. This thing rocks. It is good for rookies but will grow along with you so you don't need to upgrade after you know whats goin on. Lots of learning features and great sound. Keys feel like a real piano. Not like my Aunts steinway but close. For 700 clams you'll be hard pressed to find one better.


Way better than I expected

By Rob Trujillo

from Los Angeles

Played piano growing up and wanted something in my apartment. I picked this up because it felt/sounded good and was relatively cheap. It sounds great, the key weight and response feels very good. I have two slight complaints, the keys are a little hollow sounding compared to a real piano and the stand could be more stable. However, I only notice the hollow key sound when the volume is low and as for the stand not being as stable as the real deal, well thats what you lose when you don't have a 500lb instrument. Overall, I can't see how you could get more than this for the money, I would have been willing to pay a lot more for it. Also, the options and controls are a really nice addition compared to a real piano. I primarily play bass now and there are over a hundred drum loops built into the piano that cover the musical spectrum well. You can even play a major, diminished, etc. chord and it will incorporate it into the beat. You can also adjust the tempo quickly and accurately. I wasn't even aware of the feature when I bought the piano and have really enjoyed it.


I love it.

By Vadim

from Rochester, NY

This is a very awesome keyboard. Has way more than I thought. This YPG-625 is very friendly and easy to use, I didn't even read the Instruction Book for it (lazy lol). Everyone who sees me with this keyboard is very impressed. (they ask me how much did you buy it for?, where did you get it? ect... )You can also record and play along with it, or use the styles... The sound quality is very awesome and professional... I play in Church and I really like the sound, so when I play I listen to the sound very close and I love it! If you like the keyboard loud when you are playing or if you are in a band, I recommend a $400+ amp for it. You dont want to kill your speakers staying at 100%, (I stay at 75% or less, usally at 50% when practicing.) Most of the time my band cant hear me during a practice because of drums too loud, so get an amp... Other than that, this keyboard is awesome!!! There is nothing about it that I dont like :) The best thing I like about this keyboard is that it is very friendly, when you play with style, you can easly cange the temp, drum style, set a dual instrument in seconds even on stage, thats what I do. But you have to learn how to use it and be quick on it. Buy this keyboard, you wont regret it. It worth more than the price. I also think this is my forever keyboard (I am 17), I used it for 2 years now, and didnt have any problems with it.


Awesome Keyboard!

By Stephen

from Spring, TX

Wow! This keyboard is awesome, the quality of the keyboard itself is great! The sounds are great quality and the ability to change sounds and transpose and much more are awesome! I had a Casio (that got stolen) before this one, and this one is hands down the better of the two! I highly recommend this keyboard for intermediate and professional players b/c of the fact that it doesn't show you what keys you are playing (for beginners).


my new baby

By johnathan tomsich

from akron ohio

This digital piano is a wonderful buy. the piano setting is very versatile and does not have that generic "keyboard/piano" sound, sounds very authentic. the piano sound is literally better than my churches baldwin baby grand pianos, and comprable to our petrof grand. all im tryin to say is, the piano setting on this board is second to none. as for ep's organs and random effects, this keyboard has got it all. truly the best instrumental investment i have ever made.


Great Instrument

By Hilary

from Houston

I absolutely love my keyboard for so many reasons I can't list them all here. However, as a beginner I love how my Yamaha acts as an instructor and actually teaches me how to play the piano. The settings are so easy to use that I can create complete songs by myself and I can easily move through all the different settings without getting completly lost in the changes I made. I would recommend this product to all musicians, young and old, beginner and expert.
