REBOXED – Yamaha SHS-500 Sonogenic Keytar in Red


If you’ve never had any formal music training but would love to participate, the Yamaha SHS-500 Sonogenic Keytar is the perfect starter instrument. Essentially a keyboard but in a guitar-like format, this innovative product makes it easy for you to jam to your favourite music anywhere; especially with its lightweight, battery-powered design.

JAM Function

Featuring Yamaha’s ‘JAM Function’, this quirky addition lets you play along with your favourite songs without having to learn them note-for-note. Yeah… it’s true! Just hook the SHS-500 up to the free ‘Chord Tracker’ app, and the software will identify the chord progressions in the most treasured tunes you’ve saved on your device.

This means that no matter which keys you play, the instrument will sound the correct notes! You’d never have to worry about playing wrong notes, learning the scales or even knowing the chords.

Versatile Built-In Sounds

The Yamaha SHS-500 features 30 built-in instrument ‘Voices’. Varying from vibrant-sounding synthesizers to percussion and drum samples, the SHS-500 lets you find the right sound for almost any musical genre. And with 37 expressive mini keys, your playing articulation can shine through!

Take Control

The SHS-500 may be very compact, but it retains the vital features you’d expect to find on most keyboards. With a ‘Pitch Bend’ wheel, you can bend up and down to notes to add more expression to your playing, while the ‘Modulation’ wheel lets you add vibrato or increase the intensity of a particular sound (dependent on which ‘Voice’ you’re using).

If that doesn’t sound like enough, the Yamaha SHS-500 also features an assignable knob that lets you control a wide range of effects, giving you excellent performance power. You can also assign effect control to your modulation wheel!

Modern Connectivity Options

The SHS-500 boasts a MIDI (mini-DIN) terminal, which lets you connect with an external digital instrument. For example, many standalone synthesizers will feature MIDI ports, meaning that you can plug in the SHS-500 and use it as a MIDI controller for the other instrument. You can also connect to your smart device using Bluetooth MIDI*, or a computer via USB for 2-way audio and MIDI.

Key Features:

  • JAM Function allows you to play along with your favorite music without special musical skill
  • 30 high quality Voices (instrument sounds) with 48-note polyphony
  • Assignable real-time Control Knob, Pitch Bend and Modulation wheel
  • USB Audio & MIDI interface
  • Wireless Bluetooth MIDI connectivity
