Comprehensive Voice Library

The PSRE253 comes with 385 voices including pianos, strings, guitars and synths. The grand piano voices use stereo-sampled sounds with a superb feeling of presence. Reverb effects add an extra dimension to your sound giving the feeling of performing in a concert hall or add some chorus for extra breadth and resonance to the sound.

The PSR-E253 is also equipped with a preset Master EQ system that allows you to adjust the overall keyboard sound with settings such as Bright and Boost, making it easier to get exactly the sound you need.

Lesson Functions

The Yamaha Education Suite (Y.E.S.) includes more than 100 built-in songs. Students go through various stages of learning with the help of useful information shown on the display and interactive features. The keyboard will even grade the performance to encourage the player to develop their skills.

The lesson function offers a total of nine stages - three for the left hand, three for the right hand, and three for both hands, helping new players to practice the songs stored in the instrument. There's a scoring function that makes it fun to develop your skills and a 'waiting' function that adjusts the tempo to suit the person playing, pausing the backing track until the correct note is played.

Play Along

Connect an audio player to the PSR-E253 to enjoy your music through the instrument speakers and to play along.

Compact and Portable

The PSR-E253 weighs in at around 4kg which is light enough to take anywhere with ease. It can even run on batteries for live performances when you're out and about.

100 Accompaniment Styles

100 auto accompaniment Styles provide real-time band backing tracks based on the chords you play so you can go from soloist to full band sound with ease.
