Take one of Yamaha's most popular portable keyboard models in recent years and add a very basic song recorder. Update the colour scheme and include a wider range of 400 sounds and expand the range of onboard rhythmic accompaniment styles. The result? Yamaha's hugely important YPT260 - an ideal 5-octave model for student players!
Although NOT touch-sensitive, the YPT-260 is supplied with a mains adaptor as standard, and is a budget KS2 educational keyboard. In fact, this model is perhaps one of the most important additions to Yamaha's keyboard line-up, as it is easy to use whilst providing the fundamental elements of keyboard training, suitable for both teacher and student.
With a diverse range of built-in sounds (now totalling 400 voices including drum kits), Yamaha's YPT260 provides an exciting, authentic mix of sound from pianos through to drums, orchestrals, synth and acoustic sounds (and much more besides). And with an extended range of 130 onboard music accompanments playable by the student's left hand, a music backing track is sure to excite and inspire student's musical creativity!
Compact and portable and with onboard digital reverb effects and a basic song recorder capable of recording 300 notes, Yamaha have clearly designed the YPT260 as a low-cost educational model where melody and chord skills are paramount - the YPT260 fulfills this brilliantly.
With a large 6.35mm socket for headphones (or splitter leads for those teachers who require two students to use a single keyboard), this model can be used for silent practice in the classroom. Sockets include a MINIjack for connecting an i-Pod/pad for streaming audio through the keyboard's speakers too!
Note: See our great value 'Start Keyboard' packs found within our 'Starland Solutions' gallery. These special packs are based on Yamaha's 'YPT' models AND include all the important accessories for starting up (or adding to), a school keyboard laboratory!
