5.0 out of 5 stars Unbeatable Value For Money, 13 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Yamaha YPT220 Portable Keyboard (Electronics)
We looked at numerous keyboards for our son's 7th birthday, there were Spiderman or Pokemon themed keyboards a quarter of the size, aimed at youngsters but with very few features... And then there was this piece of kit featuring 61 full size keys for about the same price!!

It's a no-brainer, especially when you consider the Y.E.S. learning system, the sheer quality of sound, the drum kits, the accompaniments - I think we've got him something that will last him years.

People question the lack of touch responsive keys, weighted keys, sustain pedals etc. This item costs less than 100 quid, sounds like a grand piano in a concert hall, takes up the corner of a small wardrobe in storage and affords beginners a touch of excellence. Touch responsive keys may add feeling and depth to a recital if you're a maestro, but if you're seven years old and hammering away at the ivories, having them regulated is probably a bonus anyway.

I really can't fault this product at all.

My lad thinks it is the bees knees and was making music within minutes of opening the box, we'll worry about weighted keys when he worries about weighted keys, which I guarantee will be a good decade away.

You really can not go wrong with this item and I simply can't recommend it enough.
