A comprehensive library of 385 high quality voices, including pianos, guitars, drums and orchestral instruments
The PSR-E253 comes with a diverse array of 385 different voices. The grand piano voices in particular utilize stereo-sampled sounds with a superb feeling of presence. Players can enjoy reverb effects for the feeling of playing in a concert hall, and choruses that add extra breadth and resonance to the sound.
Nine-step lesson function (Yamaha Education Suite) helps beginners learn to play
The lesson function offers a total of nine stages—three for the left hand, three for the right, and three for both hands, helping beginning players to practice the songs stored in the instrument. There's a scoring function that makes it fun to practice and improve, and a "waiting" function that adjusts the tempo to the person playing, pausing the accompaniment until the correct note is played.
Compact, portable design
Weighing in at around 4kg, the PSR-E253 is light enough to take anywhere with ease. It can even run on batteries for live performances when you're out and about.
Connect an external audio source to the AUX IN jack to enjoy playing along with your favourite songs
Connect your audio player to the PSR-E253 and listen to, or play along with, your favourite music through the instrument's speakers.
Use Master EQ to adjust the sound
The PSR-E253 is equipped with a preset Master EQ that allows you to adjust the nuances of the keyboard sound with settings such as Bright or Boost, making it easier to get exactly the sound you like.
