    Casio CT X3000 or 5000
    Are the only alternative manufacturers products around your price range

    There is another duo but ithey are different in functions and that is the Roland GoPiano and GoKeys, both have superior imho sound quality to the Yamaha E series.

    For a jump in audio quality (& price) check out
    Roland BK 3
    Korg PA300 & 600

    Hi Jasmine
    This vid will show you many of the features of the e463.
    Lots of these features are far advanced past your level. But if you buy this model it will last you for many years and many of the features will be ready for you as your skills develop.

    Like I said in the other thread. She'd probably be better off with an Arturia Keylab Essential 61 and some soft synths including the ones that ship with it than spending twice as much on an inferior sounding Yamaha.

    In the other thread I suggested the 263 or 363 instead of the 463.

    Both will be more than OK for a beginner with the 363 have MIDI capabilities.

    Cash saved could then be kept Banked as savings for a better model in a couple of years time.

    UK prices
    263 is £128
    363 is £160
    463 is £259

    Gary’s suggestion:-
    Arturia Keylab Essential 61 is £184

    All a beginner with an Arranger will use is a few different instrument Voices and a few Styles, thats it, nothing more fancy.

    If Jasmine is going to be having lessons then portability could be a factor if she wants to use her own keyboard at her tutors.

    For portability, the capability to operate on batteries and for good sound quality Roland GoKeys takes some beating, I have played one and if we were to buy a keyboard for our Grandkids then it would be one if these which are £240.
