76 Piano Style Keys
YPG-225 If you're looking for a reasonably priced piano replacement, look no further than the YPG-225. It is the music student or professional musicians' answer to "I need more keys!" and many music teachers encourage new students to get a keyboard that will grow with their needs. It features 76 keys that not only look like piano keys but retain the characteristic size and shape, making it easier for a budding musician to move to an acoustic or digital piano.

Sound Quality: features twice the power of next model down (12 watts vs. 5 watts)

* 2-Way Speaker System: Separate woofers and tweeters deliver sounds with clarity and precision for more lifelike instrument voices.
* Bass Boost System: A special port on each speaker adds a powerful impact to bass sound reproduction.
* Stereo (Not just 2 Speakers): We all know that stereo sound adds realistic character and spatial depth. But how can you tell if the portable keyboard you're looking to purchase is stereo or not? With Yamaha, the answer is simple. All Yamaha Portable Keyboards are true stereo.
* Digital Signal Processing (DSP): Enhances sound quality with sophisticated digital effects like Harmony, Reverb & Chorus.
* Advanced Wave Memory (AWM): Yamaha Advanced Wave Memory technology delivers amazingly realistic sound.

Full Keyboard Mode
The YPG-225 delivers on its piano theme with a special mode of fingering called Full Keyboard Mode. This allows the player to play the keyboard like a piano; for example a chord with the right hand and bass notes with the left. When using the accompaniment feature, the virtual band will follow these chords. Traditional portable keyboards normally require you to chord on the left side of the keyboard, in the bass section, which is foreign to most piano players. The YPG-225 is also capable of this mode, for those who prefer it.
