Yamaha has launched its new stylish Musical Keyboards with advanced technology, well designed, smoothA  and affordable price to the very musical competitive market of India. Yamaha Musical Keyboard Price in India : You can buy Yamaha Musical Keyboard with price in India. This entry was posted in Consumer Electronics and tagged Yamaha on March 8, 2010 by rashmi. Both the keyboards have a lot of focus on the Indian market and hence feature Indian tones and styles. IMHO, the the quality of Indian tones on the Casio is slightly higher (the Harmonium-2 on the Casio sounds way better than the Harmonium-3 on the Yamaha) but most string instruments (Sitar, Tanpura) sound terrible and not at all like what I have heard from the real instruments.
I must also make an important announcement here: Once upon a time, the Sitar tone on keyboards imitated the rubber-band guitars we used to make ourselves. Both keyboards feature Touch sensitivity, Arpeggio, Harmonize, Pitch-bend, Transpose, Tuning, Dual-sound, Split, Registration memory and Song recording. IMHO, the tones on the Casio are better in a few departments while in others,  the Yamaha wins hands-down.
The Yamaha features 2 knobs to alter the sounds and this is completely absent from the Casio. The Casio features greater polyphony than the Yamaha and this could be a tie-breaker to those who like to layer sounds (dual sound) which themselves are internally layered. While the Casio has an incredible selection of Harmonize & Arpeggios (90 in all), the selection of arps on the Yamaha beats the Casio hands down. The Casio features Full Range Chord feature, where the user needs to play the keyboard using chord fingering (common for Indian harmonium players) and the keyboard will automatically select the appropriate chord. The Yamaha features a very easy to use jog-dial to select sounds, while the Casio requires punching of buttons. Casio features up-to 32 Registration Memory (store keyboard settings like Tone, Style, Tempo, Layers and recall at the touch of a button). The Yamaha features a power-on button which seems to do a physical cut-off while the Casio only has a soft-button for a logical power-off. Unfortunately I cannot bill you a million dollars because I do not have a straight-forward answer.
3) Setting advanced function is tedious (like changing Touch Response or Arpegio or Arpegio Hold). 7) All standard .ckf downloaded files can not be loaded into the keyboard with the native CASIO software. BUT AS YOU HAVE ALREADY MENTIONED THIS IS GOOD FOR THE BEGINNER AT THE AVAILABLE PRICE LEVEL. I cannot recommend between Yamaha & Casio because that would be like buying a shoe for my feet and expecting you to wear them. What I have done in the article is to bring out the salient features of both the keyboards. Is there a way in PSi425 to have a tabla (TeenTal) play in background and the keboard is used to play a harmonium. The I425 does not seem to contain a sampling function but supports some USB drive functionality about which I don’t have much info. In new keyboards, you can infact configure the parts of each style (bass, drum, backing) to different instruments than the default ones. If you are considering the CTK-810, for a few thousand rupees more, the CTK-5000 is a better choice.
Can you suggest a reliable shops in Mumbai or Navi Mumbai Where I can get both of the above keyboards.
Unfortunately, there are no other keyboard manufacturers who have products in the Sub 20K range. Both the CTK-4000 and CTK-5000 allow you to sample external sounds and use them as Tones or Rhythms. While the CTK-4000 can store about 13 seconds of audio (shared between 5 tones and 5 styles), I think the CTK-5000 can do a little better. Which keyboard of Roland is Just above 20K I can extend my budget little bit if the keyboard worth it. If you are looking for Indian tones, realistic sound, USB connectivity – the yamaha is your choice. If you are looking for a budget synth and not bothered about realistic sounds or Indian tones, go for the Korg (if you can find a secondhand one in good condition).
Hey Rajib, thanks for answering my question…I have one more doubt…which amplifier wud be good for a Casio Ctk-5000? The Stranger and Marshall are equally good stage amps made in India and are great for impromptu jams and concerts. You will need a special Stereo to Mono cable or Stereo to Monox2 cable to run into the Amp.
If you directly connect the Casio using Stereo pins at both end, only the left channel is actually input into the amp you will notice the lack of richness in the sound. I have a feeling that you will not find this cable in a store and will have to make one of the required length yourself.
This is not a good approach because blindly joining left & right channels can actually result in the audio waveforms canceling each other and the resulting sound is hollow. Since the keyboards only feature a USB MIDI port, they cannot be used to connect and control an old style tone-generator that uses only DIN style MIDI ports.
Please dis-regard the previous statement completely if your child happens to be inclined towards music and is gifted.


If this will be your child’s first keyboard and you are unsure if your child will take up learning music in a structured way, I will recommend the entry level Casio CTK-700. PSR-I425 has 514 Voices and 162 Styles, including 10 Indian Voices and 12 Indian Styles, and is loaded with new features such as sound control knobs that give the user real time control effects, filters, envelope generator and tempo.
Two assignable knobs on the panel give you flexible, powerful real-time control of filter (Voice or Style), effect settings, sound envelope (Attack and Release) and style tempo. Digital Music Notebook (available as a free download) is a major new multimedia platform for music learning and performance. With 533 comments (as of writing of this post), my article comparing the Casio & Yamaha keyboards is the most popular article on the blog. Here is a tabular comparison of the keyboards illustrating the similarities and differences in the technical details of the keyboards.
Lastly, have you tried out the Casio Lighted keyboard ones that are available outside of India. The CTK-7000 is a technically superior keyboard, however the Yamaha PSR I-425 is a better learners and live performers keyboard. I have read your comparison of Casio CTK 5000 and Yamaha PSR i425 and must say that in depth comparison is appreciable.
Keeping my budget constraints, can u suggest me which is best for me as an hobbyist, to purchase a used keyboard – either Yamaha PSR 1500 or Yamaha PSR i425 or Casio CTK 7000 ?
That said, the PSR 1500 is also likely to be quite old and hence I would like you to check it thoroughly (check the keys, buttons, sliders, knobs and wheels for proper functioning) before you buy it.
I am assuming that you intend to use the keyboard to either provide backing rhythm + chord or even entire sequences so that you can play along. The Yamaha E333 is a keyboard even more basic than the CTK-4200 but it does enjoy Yamaha’s excellent rhythms and offers marginally more real-time control of rhythm+chord start stop.
I am looking forward to buy a keyboard for my 7yr old daughter who will be starting her keyboard classes from June. The 49-key keyboard will allow her 2-hand playing practice and the light-weight machine will mean that you will not always have to carry it for her. Happen to come across your comparison chart during my short research on finding out an entry level keyboard. The keyboard does support multi-track composition on the keyboard itself, but if you connect it to the computer, you will find it easier to edit the music on the computer. While feature-wise they are quite similar, a quick comparison revealed that there are quite a few differences in the products, some glaring while others subtle. While the Yamaha has a greater selection of Indian tones (more percussion instruments), the Casio features a good selection of tones from Indian, Chinese and Arabic music.
Both keyboards feature Headphone-out, Sustain Pedal-in and USB connectivity.  Both keyboards are 5 octaves and support the entire General MIDI (GM) sound set and many more (nearly 500 tones). This will be very noticeable by those who use a computer to create their score and playback using the sound engine of the keyboard. I prefer the Yamaha approach but then chances are that the button will break over a long period of time.
If the teen tal is available on your keyboard as a style (on the Casio it’s Dadra rhythm), you can set the tone as Harmonium and play them both simultaneously.
The PSR I425 is an improved model featuring many Indian tones & styles and most importantly two knobs to tweak the sound.
I also read somewhere that you can’t change instrument without changing style in bot the keyboards…Is it true?? Imagine tweaking the basic Waltz style to play using Techno instruments like Synth Bass and Synth-Leads!! This is the original connector used by the MIDI standard including a feature called Pass-Through which allowed multiple keyboards to be chained in a sequence.
It’s an improved model featuring Indian tones and some unique sound modification functionality. The Korg X5D is a very dated synth (released in 1996, 8MB Sound bank) and supports true-synthesis capabilities with up-to 100 user designed sounds. Once recorded, you can play your compositions at the touch of a button and control the playback of individual tracks of a composition. You can use this feature to quickly configure the settings of the keyboard with the touch of a button. For the brief period when I was tinkering with the Yamaha keyboard, I could figure out the Yamaha’s functions all by myself by just pressing (sometimes pressing longer than 3 seconds) the various buttons. It provides 50 different Arpeggio types that automatically generate useful patterns and phrases that change depending on the notes and chords you play.
One dedicated button brings up a great sounding piano, stunningly rich and authentic in its sound as well as setting up the keyboard to play as a piano. Connections and setup are exceptionally easy, and you can play back your computer recorded parts with different instrument sounds - all from a single instrument. The built-in tone generator handles virtually any MIDI song file--from commercially available music data to songs created on computer or other MIDI instruments.
While the article does discuss the keyboards, technical details are not available in the article. However if you are looking for good customization of rhythms, measures and tones, you should consider the CTK-7000.
Don’t bother with the CTK-810IN (quite dated now), CTK-6000 (less features than CTK-5000) and CTK-42000 (at the lower end of your budget). However, the Yamaha PSR-I425 is compatible with USB Pendrives and can Load+Save your compositions and keyboard settings into it.


Both Yamaha and Casio keyboards multiple types of auto-harmonize (including 2 octave function). Rajib, after having gone through your blogs, I was so happy that you have gone very deep into the subject and obviously your ideas about these musical instruments have simply started multiplying like anything as it has reflected in all of your blogs.
The keyboard was released in 2004 as an Arranger keyboard and has terrific real-time control of keyboard features for stage performance. Connect the keyboard to computer using USB and use a MIDI recording software (like Fruity Loops) to record the MIDI performance data. Between the Casio and Yamaha keyboards, the single biggest difference is the realtime performance control and the Yamaha excels in that. By this benchmark, the tones on both the keyboards indeed sound quite good and are only a few steps away from fooling the listener.
Even the pitch-bend wheel on both keyboards looks weakly constructed and the modulation wheel is missing from both. The Casio requires batteries to retain the Registration Memory settings upon power-off while the Yamaha seems to store them in some kind of Non-Volatile RAM (NVRAM).
Casio adapter is very smart and I got three types of power connecting cords with the Casio adapter. You need to connect to Computer and scope of storing the sampled sound is very very limited compared to CTK5000. Also the Korg features MIDI-DIN connectors (great for studio equipment) and not USB (great for computer connectivity). There now exists USB-to-MIDI convertors which allow Keyboard to Tone-Generator connections. They feature full-sized keys on a 5 Octave keyboard and have enough tones & rhythms to keep a child busy. The panel settings will automatically be adjusted for the ideal combination of sounds and style! All you have to do is play on the keyboard--alternately on the left- and right-hand ranges of the keyboard, for example--and you'll sound like a pro as long as you play in time with the music. Naturally, it plays back conventional GM song data, but it also is compatible with the enhanced XGlite format, ensuring high sound quality. It is more expensive but a very capable keyboard and will serve the needs of a musician like you. Attracted by the additional Indian sounds and few other features, ended up ordering a PSR-i425.
The advantage of this approach is that your computer receives the notes that you play, rather than the sound. The advantage of this approach is that you can take advantage of the wonderful sounds of the keyboard and record the styles, variations etc.
Pianos can be muted, Strings can have slow onsets and plucked sounds like Guitars can stretch infinitely. Use the Pitch Bend wheel, and hear these Voices--especially the Sax and Trumpet--truly come alive! Furthermore, this instrument allows Music Database files transferred from a computer or stored on a USB flash memory device. Please check the USB specifications carefully as most of the older machines only support devices of 2GB max. You can also download the manual (in PDF format) from the manufacturer’s website and look up the appropriate section in the manual. One of my key objective is to play some tunes and export it to PC and mix it using an editing suite like Fruity Loops or Acid Pro.
You can modify these notes to your hearts content and then use the Yamaha as the MIDI Output device (playback on keyboard) or use Fruity Loops Soft-Synth engine to playback the music using sounds that are not present on the Yamaha.
The selection of Strings on the Casio is quite good too, and have good depth (not in the same class as a Korg though) while the Yamaha strings sound a little synthetic but it’s collection of Pads is mind-blowing. Clearly there are better MP3 players out there but most users head straight for the Apple offering and recommend others to do the same. The core of the instrument is similar across both the brands and unique refinements exist in both brands.
