NAMM 2016: Yamaha DGX-660 Digital Piano
Thanks to their wooden housing, digital pianos usually blend in nicely with the rest of your furniture. Keyboards, on the other hand, tend to stick out a bit more. With their DGX series, Yamaha provides the perfect middle ground. These instruments have the same options as a keyboard, but their housing (with stand) ensures they don't stand out too much in your living room. The newest additions to the DGX family are the DGX-660 and the DGX-660WH.
Both of these new Yamaha digital pianos produce outstanding sound, and their 88-key Graded Hammer Standard keyboards feel great under your fingers. In addition to their delightful piano tones, they offer no fewer than 550 other sounds, so if you're not in the mood for Chopin, you can opt for anything from strings, horns and guitars to drums and synths. Naturally, Yamaha's familiar quality is guaranteed!
Playing songs is a piece of cake, as the DGX - in true keyboard style - offers different 200 styles (rhythms). Thanks to a polyphony of 192 voices, you'll be able to play complicated arrangements without the fear of dropping notes. For true musical explorers, there is a six-track recorder that allows you to create your own songs. You can even include vocals using the piano's microphone input, and add some reverb. Record the results with the USB Audio Recorder.
With the Yamaha DGX-660 you're treating yourself to a quality instrument that looks just as good at home as it does on stage. The digital piano is easy to operate, and is available in two stylish finishes: black and white.
