Yamaha PSR-530 Music Workstation
61-Key (Full Size Key) MIDI Portable Keyboard
This keyboard came to us as a trade-in. We don’t know a lot about this model but we have found a couple of issues. We have pushed all of the function buttons and they make changes, the screen is bright and clear but the keys have yellowed and the highest black key does not trigger. We have not tested the cartridge slot. Cosmetically it is in fair condition but could stand a good cleaning. The power adapter is not included.
