Yamaha PSR-E253 61-key Portable Arranger

With students playing all instruments, I put together bands consisting of guitar, bass and keyboard students to support the drum students at recital performances. I worked several keyboard manufacturers creating sounds and promoting products for years. Even over the last 4 years, the inexpensive keyboard lines are less expensive, have better sounds and are lighter in weight. It's amazing how this keyboard sounds when plugged into a stereo or P.A. system. Fun to practice piano songs with a variety of sounds. And as always, Sweetwater gives me the best info, prices and support.
