Easy To Use
One of the best things about the Yamaha PSR-F52 is how simple and hassle-free it is to use. All you have to do is plug it in using the included DC power adaptor and you’re ready to go. The punchy and clear built-in speakers mean you can start playing as soon as it’s powered on. There’s also a stereo mini-jack which can be used with headphones for silent practice or connected to external speakers.
Compact Form Factor
The PSR-F52 features a compact size, a lightweight and the option run on separate 6 AA batteries, making it a fully portable keyboard. This is particularly handy if you need a keyboard for practising or performing on the go or outdoors. Despite how easy it is to transport, the PSR-F52 feels remarkably solid, durable and robust thanks to Yamaha’s world-renowned build quality.
Yamaha have equipped the PSR-F52 with 61 standard-size keys, which deliver a dynamic and expressive playing experience. There are 144 inspiring sounds onboard, which draw from Yamaha’s decades of instrument-making experience. Practically any genre and style can be covered with the various pianos, organs, guitars, strings, woodwind, brass, percussion and synth voices. In addition to traditional Western timbres, the PSR-F52 also boasts 41 World voices from China, India and the Middle East.
A standout feature of the PSR-F52 is the Sound Boost. When engaged, the Sound Boost adds power and weight to the sound. It’s perfect for when you need an extra kick for energetic styles such as electronic and dance music.
Perfect For Beginners
Beginners are sure to love the Song feature, a fun practice tool that’s packed with plenty of well-known standards from across the globe. Learning the 69 songs is a breeze, as you have the ability to slow them down and mute the Left or Right-hand notes. The Smart Chord function, which also works with the Style accompaniment section, allows you to play the chords for select songs with just one finger.
The free downloadable Song Book provides useful visual guidance when learning the onboard songs and lets you know which songs work with Smart Chord. There are even dedicated lesson videos for the most popular songs.
The Duo feature is an excellent way to teach and share the playing experience. When Duo mode is on, the PSR-F52 splits the keyboard from the middle so you can easily play music with your friends and family.
Yamaha’s PSR-F52 is highly recommended if you need a flexible all-in-one accompaniment solution. It’s like having a slick virtual band - inside of the keyboard. With the Intro/Ending and Fill-in functions, you can create smooth arrangements on the fly.
The auto-accompaniment feature provides professional-sounding, polished accompaniment in a whopping 158 styles. This keyboard can handle it all, from Rock & Jazz to Eurotrance & Disco. Like with its instrument voices, the PSR-F52’s styles also cover Latin, African, Middle Eastern, Indian and Chinese genres. When it comes to versatility, the Yamaha PSR-F52 is hard to beat!
If you’re accompanying a singer that performs better in a different key, you can reach for the Transpose feature. This way, you can change the key (up to an octave up or down) and use the same fingering.
If you’re in the market for an affordable keyboard, the Yamaha PSR-F52 home portable keyboard is one of the best options for the money. With its massive selection of instrument sounds and beginner-friendly features, the Yamaha PSR-F52 is guaranteed to inspire for years to come.
