Great sound and feel.Got my Keyboard from Sweet Water just 3 days after I ordered it. The sounds are great and realistic. The keyboard is easy to operate and set up. This is ideal for home practice, live performance, and hoking up to a computer with the necessary software to do even more advance music production.

Dollars Well SpentI bought the YPG-535 for my Christmas present. I currently own another Yamaha keyboard, the 61 key E413, but wanted eighty-eight keys. After much shopping and comparison of features I settled on the YPG-535, which did arrive before Christmas of 2009.
Having played on synth style keyboards for a number of years, over twenty, I didn't want a weighted piano style keyboard. Assembly took a little time to affix the instrument to the stand, which went together without any problems and complements the look of the instrument. In a nutshell this keyboard is all that I had hoped for and more. The features and keyboard itself are more than I had hoped for. For me, it's a perfect instrument not only providing a splendid piano sound it provides other instruments and options that will keep me practicing and playing for the foreseeable future. More bang for the buck than can be imagined and the best I have ever had the pleasure of buying.

Amazingi love using this keyboard. it doesn't sound like a 500 dollar it sounds like a $1000 one. The people at Sweetwater are very nice. The box on mine was damaged and they let me take it out and play it in the showroom. Thats service.!

MORE INFO FOR YPG-535; STILL HARD TO BEATIn an earlier review, (7/2010) I wrote that Ithis keyboad rescued me from an emergency situation. It's still performing as good as ever! I've heard nothing but good comments about its sound, Although some other players have issues with the spring-action keys, I don't. Its dedicatd PORTABLE GRAND button will bring back the PIANO sound from any function on the keyboard. The EXIT button will bring back the main screen from other work areas of the insturment. Although the owner's manual chord chard dos not say so, thie YPG-535 recognizes 1st and 2nd inversions of major chords; just play the E and the C above it (do NOT play the G in the middle) to get the 1st inversion of a C chord; play the G and the C above it to get the 2nd inversion (5th in the bass). The TEMPO TAP is an easy way to get the exact speed that you want if the default accompaniment style setting is too fast or too slow.Larger buttons make this a very user-friendly instrument. ONce you learn your way around this piano-based board, you will be able to play ANY piano, even 9-foot concert grands! If you like the VOICE and STYLE lineup but want weighted action keys, try out the YPG-640.

Awesome buy!Really enjoying our YPG-535. Our daughter is having a blast learning on it. Extremely high quality made and sound.
We've never dealt with a company like Sweetwater with any purchase. They are friendly and the follow up is incredible. They want to make sure that you are more than 100% satisified.

Outstanding KeyboardI received my YPG535 Yamaha keyboard just five days after ordering it. It is truly an amazing, beautiful-sounding instrument. It is so much more "user friendly" than other keyboards I have previously owned. I especially want to commend my Sales Engineer, Alan Finkbeiner for his expertise and excellent service. Sweetwater is very fortunate to have such dedicated staff as Mr. Finkbeiner.

HARD TO BEAT FOR THE PRICEI first tried the YPG-535 and its twin, the DGX-530 just before Christmas, 2009. At that time, I decided that either one of these boards would replace the DGX-505 that I was using at the time. The replacement time finally came on July, 19, 2010 when the pitch bend wheel on the DGX-505 broke down for the fourth (and last) time. Exam of the owner's manual shows that the DGX-530 and YPG-535 are esentially the same instrument,. For purposes of this review, I'll say that the YPG 535 is the best instrument in its size and price range. Its buttons are on the YPG-535 are much larger and easier to operate that the older 88-key Portable Grand-series keyboards. It's a great companion instrument to the Yamaha MM6, the other half of my dual setup. Its voice selection covers virtually every kind of music; I lovethe British-style Auto Accompaniments that are part of the 160 style lineup. As with all multiple-voice instruments, you'll need to invest lots of time in trying out the voices and styles before taking it out on its first gig, but in an emrgencey, the PIANO is ready to play when the instrument is turned on. I prefer the lighter key action of the YPG-535 since most of my experience comes from organs and synths. But for those of you who like the VOICES nad STYLES but prefer the heavier touch of a regular acoustic piano, try out the YPG-635.
