      The GHS Keyboard - the real feel of a piano

      Developed to capture the essence of an acoustic piano keyboard, Yamaha's Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) keyboard offers the acoustic piano expression, allowing you to play with nuanced tone and subtle dynamics. It even duplicates the graded touch of an acoustic piano with a firm feel in the bass register that transitions to a lighter, delicate feel for the keys in the treble

      Live! Cool!, and Sweet! Voices

      Authentic guitars, lush strings, punchy brass… Yamaha's highly acclaimed Live!, Cool! and Sweet! Voices feature a unique blend of long, stereo and multi-layered samples that capture the essence of each instrument, right down to genuine resonance, expression and vibrato.

      Big box speakers - powerful, dynamic sound

      The DGX650's powerful stereo speakers are housed in large enclosures and feature separate woofers and tweeters that deliver powerful, distortion-free bass and pure treble with excellent dynamic control.

      Staff Member Justin Myerscough explains why this is possibly the best product around this price that you can buy for your budding keyboard/pianists

      Keyboard route or Piano Route ?

      The answer I believe is both, it doesn't have to be one or the other , if you go for a keyboard you miss out on the technique associated with Piano , if you go for just a Piano you miss out on so many facilities which far from being a gimmick will actually help, encourage the student to play more , enjoy it more , learn faster and ultimately become a better musician for it.

      The DGX650 is the only product on the market around this price with this quality of Piano touch and sound combined with great educational features such as the score facility , composition facilities and storage with media transfer of up to date filetypes.

      To beat this product, in my view you would have to go up in price to the Korg Havian ( Just under 1000 )
