Yamaha YPT 220 Fantastic First Keyboard

With an average customer rating of 4 out of 5 stars I thought I would check out the Yamaha YPT-220. On Amazon it comes as a package with an AC power adapter, stand and headphones. I am interested to see if the accessories are in fact suited to the keyboard as I have been disappointed with the quality and suitability of these items with some other piano packages that I have reviewed.

Yamaha YPT 220 Features

  • Portable lightweight keyboard
  • 61 Keys
  • 375 voices of high quality sounds including drum kit sounds
  • 100 accompaniment styles to choose from
  • includes the famous Yamaha Grand piano sound at a touch of a button
  • has the Yamaha Education Suite (Y.E.S) to enable anyone to learn how to play the keyboard (there are 102 songs to have a go at learning).
  • 9 different reverb effects

Yamaha YPT 220Other Benefits

Since this is a relatively small portable keyboard Yamaha have included the option to use batteries (6 AA) instead of an AC power supply so you can use this outdoors if you want to.

There is also a sound effect kit which lets you play around with sounds other than musical instruments. For example soulds you might hear around the home such as a dog barking, creaking doors and water running!

The Yamaha education suite has always been a winner as you get to learn songs in a step by step fashion using one or both hands depending on how confident you are. This tool is brilliant for children learning to play as they can see their progress quite easily.

Please note that the Yamaha YPT 220 keyboard is NOT touch sensitive so don’t be fooled by the reference to “responding well to touch” – you would not get a touch responsive keyboard at such a low price as this.

Customer Review Pros

  • Fantastic price for a beginners keyboard.
  • Great variety of sounds to play around with and easy to use.
  • Ideal for beginners to learn.
  • The adapter is a Yamaha one so works fine.
  • Really lightweight.

Customer Review Cons

  • The headphones included are actually not that great. A few people have commneted that they have not given a good sound but dispite this they think the keyboard itself is great.
  • Others have mentioned that the stand isn’t compatible with the keyboard but not all customers which is odd. However one customer did state that Amazon refunded them a certain amount when they complained.

I would definitely recommend purchasing the Yamaha YPT 220 keyboard if you are wanting to learn how to play the piano or if your child has styarted learning and wants to practise. Its an ideal first piano.
