Portable Keyboards Special Site

The origins of Yamaha’s prolific keyboard instruments date back to 1887 when Torakusu Yamaha first repaired a reed organ. Later, Nippon Gakki (now Yamaha) was founded, and production of upright pianos began in 1900. Yamaha grew to become the world’s largest manufacturer of musical instruments.

Later shifting focus to electronic keyboard instruments, Yamaha developed our first electronic organ in 1959, the Electone D-1. Over the years that followed, the company developed the Electone GX-1, the CP-70/80 stage pianos, and the CS-80 synthesizer. In 1979, Yamaha released the company’s first portable keyboards, the PS-1, 2 and 3, as well as the piano-type GS-1 electronic keyboard, and in 1983 debuted the YP-30, the first in the Clavinova series. This series would become the international standard for the digital pianos that followed.

Yamaha’s electronic keyboards are renowned throughout the world thanks to their beautiful sounds, superior playability, functionality that reflects the essence of musical instrument performance, and their superb level of quality control. This high level of quality and value is made possible largely due to the company’s extensive knowledge and skills accrued from manufacturing not just keyboards, but a wide variety of string, percussion, and acoustic instruments as well.

In 2007, Yamaha released the PSR-I425, a keyboard that was designed specifically for performers of Indian music, with the PSR-I500, I400 and I300 released in succession afterwards.

To this day Yamaha continues to contribute to the music culture of India in many ways, including sales of products that are recognized as Trinity-grade instruments.

The PSR-I Series is designed specifically for players of Indian music. This series offers a full array of advantages for keyboardists playing Indian music, including authentic Indian instrument sounds, auto accompaniment perfect for playing Indian music from a variety of regions and Indian films, Songs for practicing Raga scales, a “Riyaz” feature for auto-playback of Tabla / Mridangam and Tanpura sounds, and more.

Indian Voices

The instrument sounds that are featured on Yamaha’s digital keyboards are called “Voices.” To add to the wide variety and beauty of these Voices, our instruments are renowned for their ability to recreate dynamics and make realistic changes in sound based on how they are played. This authenticity of sound and performance stems from Yamaha's unique experience and the intimate knowledge gained from manufacturing the actual instruments that are featured on our keyboards. Our Indian models include traditional instrument sounds such as harmoniums, shehnai, sarangi and more, that are indispensable for playing Indian music.

Indian Styles

Players can use the auto accompaniment “Style” feature available on our keyboards to play rhythms and accompaniment in a variety of genres to match the chords they play. The quality of this auto accompaniment feature is so impressive that it is even used by professional musicians. These auto accompaniments have been created by Yamaha over many years in consultation with top musicians in each genre and with local artists who have a deep knowledge of a wide variety of styles in many different countries, as well as through ongoing research. Our Indian keyboards include a large number of auto accompaniment Styles that are optimal for use in playing popular Indian music, including traditional music from regions like Bhajan and Bhangra, Styles often used in Indian films.

Raga Songs

Our digital keyboards feature many standard songs from around the world, that you can not only enjoy listening to, but also download songbooks to play them from the Yamaha website, or use the keyboard lesson function to master songs step by step. Our Indian keyboards feature many practice Songs that let players learn the traditional Raga scales, step by step. These features are also perfectly suitable for vocal training.
