Yamaha SHS 500 Sonogenic Keytar Black
The 'Yamaha Sonogenic SHS500 Keytar' is a great fun keyboard. It works from batteries or via the included power supply, has a built is speaker, outputs, inputs and much more! It is simple to use and easy to see how it is set up via the screen and allows you to play along with backtracks or play with friends. Designed for non-players and gigging performers this 'stand-up' keyboard is great. It has 30 quality sounds and a touch sensitive keyboard with features like octave shift, transpose, pitch bend and many more. You can use it as a controller keyboard via USB, or it also has a connector for 5 pin MIDI connection too. The key action is light and easy to play and its light weight so you can stand with your guitar friends and jam along if you want to. It even has a feature whereby you can play a backing track and it can scan the track and tell you the chord its playing and also stop you from playing notes not in the chord structure. This is a great feature that makes a non-player sound amazing straight away. I think this is an excellent value, fun keyboard.
