Was £79.99 now down to £49.99. Seen in Grantham, but any stock left in other stores should also be discounted.

Did you notice if they had the stand for sale too?

At the Grantham store they had a number of the stands and they were discounted as well, but I can't remember how much they were marked down to.

Hot if you can get it!

You can't go wrong with Yamaha £50 is a bargain if you can get if you've never played before Yamaha keyboards like this have built in lessons

only 61 keys.

Only £50.

It's a good price for a Yamaha keyboard. Beware though, if you're getting this for a young 'un that's learning to play piano and going through their grade lessons etc. then this won't be ideal, as there is no touch sensitivity to the keys. Look for a second-hand PSR that does. You can get them in great condition for very little money from kids who have moved on. I sold my son's one last year for about £25 with an X-frame stand on Gumtree. You really need to get them appreciating the tone of their playing while they're learning. It's make it easier later on, so they're not wailing on it at full volume.

Good deal for this though, as it's closer to £100 on Amazon.

Just paid £70 for this on an Amazon Warehouse deal
I suppose I wouldn't have found have found stock near me anyway (_;)

It's a great keyboard anyway - it has MIDI connections (would have preferred USB but it's nice to have something for the PC) and a 6.3mm headphone socket.

Only MIDI my comparatively ancient PSR-K1 has USB and it takes (now obscelete) Smart Media memory cards

Totally agree on point about lack of touch response. This is a good deal for £50 but the same amount would find you a 300 series Yamaha or ctk or WK series Casio, second hand, which would have the touch response feature. Speaking as a piano teacher, I start using dynamics (loud/quiet) in lessons after about 6 months so this keyboard would certainly be a false economy for my students

Are there any keyboard that allow you to "install" new lessons? I know lots come with lessons built in where you press the keys as they light up, but I was wondering whether there's an online community of sorts that allows users to create and upload their own lessons for others to download and play.

I've done lessons as a kid and I get the keyboard out once a year or so with good intentions but I never have enough free time or time at home to really get into it properly. These built in lessons would at least give me a guitar hero sense of achievement
