Yamaha DGX-230 76-key Touch Sensitive Keyboard Bundle

The Yamaha DGX230 is sure to please musicians and non-musicians alike. Both will appreciate the vast library of 489 high-quality instrument sounds and 150 accompaniment styles. Both will enjoy the premium sound quality from stereo speakers with enhanced bass. And both will admire the response of the 76 touch-sensitive box-style piano keys. Musicians, specifically, will find the 6-track sequencer, USB computer interface and Flash ROM for downloading internet songs extremely useful. Non-musicians, on the other hand, will most likely favor the Yamaha Education Suite (Y.E.S.) virtual music teacher and the Performance Assistant that ensures that every note they play is correct no matter which key they press!

Great Keyboard

Model Number: DGX230
"I've always wanted to learn to play the piano, so I finally bought a keyboard. It seems easy to use, but the educational suite is beyond me. I haven't found anything on the cd or anywhere else that talks about hand placement."

Like a real piano

Cons: earphone aren't very good
Model Number: DGX-230
"I had never tried playing a keyboard, and was blown away with the tone and touch of this product. I am getting re-acquainted with playing a piano and having a lot of fun. With the earphones engaged, no one else has to suffer my practice sessions. A big plus.
I wish a sustainer pedal had been included. It wasn't long before I realized I had to order one.
A quality product.

Great Piano for Beginner or Professional

Pros: excellent sound quality and features
Cons: large and slightly expensive for some beginners
Model Number: DGX230
"As usual, Yamaha quality shows through. This keyboard is great for both beginner and professional. Depending on your budget, this may be a little bit large and expensive for some beginners, but they will not grow out of it and it should last for years if properly taken care of. Sound quality is superb. Yamaha does it again. Highly recommended."

OK

Pros: comes with headphones stand and charger.
Cons: only 76 keys.
Model Number: DGX230
"This is an acceptable unit. It is not close to my piano but suits my needs - quiet (silent with headphones) for off hours practice, portable (for taking on RV trips) and built in recording. It is a good value for the price"

Great keyboard

Cons: headphone doesn't fit or work.
Model Number: DGX230
"I'm really impressed with the Yamaha. I purchased it to take a class to re-learn how to play piano and didn't want a keyboard that is either too small or too large This 76 key is perfect. The tone quality is great & I'm really happy I decided on this model. And, I'm totally impressed on the delivery -- purchased on a Tuesday and I had it on Thursday. Kudos to Costco."

Looooove it!!!

Model Number: DGX 230
"My son started keyboard playing in September last year, and I did not want to invest right away in a keyboard (wanted to make sure that he was going to stick to it before investing!!!)
The keyboard is great, my son loves it. He will be able to keep it for years as it will grow with his progress.
On top of it, congratulations to Costco for their customer service: I ordered it on Tuesday, and it was delivered on Thursday!!!!
