• Yamaha PSR-E353

Key benefits compared to other products

Keyboards are amazing - they can recreate the sounds of hundreds of different instruments at the touch of a button. Want the sound of a concert grand piano? No problem - just select it from the control panel. But to really make a grand piano, violin or any number of other sounds come to life, you need something called Touch Sensitivity.

On a real grand piano, pressing a key harder will make a louder sound; on a violin, bowing harder will make the note louder; on a snare drum, hitting the snare harder will make a louder sound.

This sensitivity is so fundamental to music and the ability to put expression into music, that we can forget it's there - but not all beginner keyboards feature sensitivity.

The PSR-E353 does. Thanks to its fully touch-sensitive keys, you can perform with all the expression you desire - making it a natural step when you upgrade to a digital piano in the future.

A comprehensive library of 573 high quality voices
The PSR-E353 comes with a diverse array of 573 different voices including pianos, strings, guitars and synths. The grand piano voices utilise stereo-sampled sounds with a superb feeling of presence. Players can enjoy reverb effects for the feeling of performing in a concert hall, and choruses that add extra breadth and resonance to the sound.
Nine-step lesson function (Yamaha Education Suite) helps beginners learn to play
The lesson function offers a total of nine stages - three for the left hand, three for the right hand, and three for both hands, helping new players to practise the songs stored in the instrument. There's a scoring function that makes it fun to develop your skills and a "waiting" function that adjusts the tempo to suit the person playing, pausing the backing track until the correct note is played.
Connect your music player, reduce the lead volume with Melody Suppressor and jam along with the music
Connect an audio player to the PSR-E353 to enjoy your music through the instrument speakers and to play along. The "Melody Suppressor" function lowers the volume of the melody, allowing you to play the lead line of your favourite tracks.
*The volume of the melody line may not lower for some songs.

The PSR-E353 is equipped with a preset Master EQ system that allows you to adjust the overall keyboard sound with settings such as Bright and Boost, making it easier to get exactly the sound you need.
