Yamaha’s Most Portable Grand!
If you’re looking for a portable electric keyboard with authentic-feeling semi-weighted action, the Yamaha DGX230 should be a serious contender for your attention! With Yamaha’s Graded Soft Touch keyboard, which offers more resistance on the lower notes just like a real acoustic piano, you’ll be to cultivate a finer technique. The 76-key DGX230 comes with a vast database of different sounds for you to explore, and it’s also preloaded with numerous accompaniment tracks, so you can practice your ensemble playing even when you’re alone. The DGX230 may be the least expensive model in the Yamaha Portable Grand series, but it sacrifices little by way of functionality compared to instruments costing many times more.
A Weighted Action Cultivates More Subtle Technique
Yamaha’s Graded Soft Touch design gives your playing experience depth and subtlety. The action is weighted more heavily on the bass end, just as on a real piano. On the higher end the action is slightly lighter, allowing your fast runs and chording to move effortlessly.
A Feast of Sounds and Backing Tracks
The DGX230 improves upon Yamahya’s popular DGX220 with the expansion to 489 sounds and 160 musical accompaniment tracks. And if that’s not enough, you can connect it to your computer via the USB port and download new sounds and tracks from Yamaha’s internet Music Finder Service. The included software interface makes it easy! Want to get back to Yamaha’s rich grand piano sound fast? Just press the Portable Grand button.
It’s Also a Recording Device
In addition to the 30 included songs for you to play with or enjoy, the DGX230 also includes a sequencer with enough onboard memory to record 5 songs of your choice with up to six tracks of overdubs! It’s not uncommon for musicians new to the keyboard to discover an inner composer they never knew they had — so it’s definitely a good to have a dependable way to record your ideas while you play!
Happy At Home, Happy At The Park
The functionality of this instrument doesn’t trade off one bit on its portability. You can either plug in a standard 12V DC 2A wall adapter, or power it on-the-go with six D sized batteries. And with its 76-key size, the DGX230 is Yamaha’s most portable Portable Grand keyboard.
