The much-loved Yamaha P-Series is a bestseller in the field of compact, stylish digital pianos. As the latest addition to this series, the P255 offers a more authentic piano sound and feel than ever before. Thanks to its highly portable design, this digital piano can be played in any place or setting you desire.
Piano quality to the satisfaction of even experienced pianists
Despite its slim, portable design, the P255 offers a full range of performance capabilities. In terms of keyboard, piano voices, and sound reinforcement, this is the very best digital piano in the P-Series. Whether you’re already an expert or new to the piano, you’ll love playing this instrument.
Synthetic ivory keytops let you play in comfort for hours on end
The lower keys are heavier to the touch and the higher ones are lighter, making the P255 feel just like a real grand piano with GH keyboard. What’s more, the white keys feature synthetic ivory keytops with excellent moisture absorption properties, meaning that your fingers won’t slip even when playing for extended periods of time. The keytops are also ideal for rapid finger movement, so you can play any type of music with confidence.The P255 keyboard can also be set to four different sensitivity levels. When practicing Hanon exercises, for example, you can configure the keyboard requiring more powerful touch; alternatively, you can set it to sound louder even when played lightly. It’s totally up to you.
Impressive piano voices reproduce the sensation of playing a concert grand piano
The P255 uses an Pure CF Sound Engine to produce its piano sounds. As with the much-lauded sound engine of our Clavinova, this tone generator features the recorded sounds of Yamaha concert grand pianos. As such, it can easily replicate the nuances of delicate playing or wide dynamic ranges, so you can enjoy the sensation of playing a concert grand. In addition, as the only digital piano in our P-Series to feature the following three functions, the P255 can also recreate the characteristic acoustics of the grand piano sound in a more realistic fashion.[Key-off Sampling]This function reproduces the slight change in sound at the instant you remove your fingers from the keys. What’s more, different key-off sounds can be produced for staccato and tenuto playing.[Sustain Sampling]The resonance of the soundboard and strings when the damper pedal is operated has been sampled in order to recreate this acoustic effect on the P255, depending on how much the pedal is pressed down.[String Resonance]When the hammer of a grand piano strikes its string, the other strings will also resonate. The P255 can reproduce this effect using its String Resonance function.
Meticulous acoustic design for a more exquisite sound
Round speakers vibrate in a highly natural manner to produce well-balanced sounds, and it is this type of speaker that has been integrated into the P255. Thanks to this design, lower notes in particular have a much richer tone. The P255 also features built-in tweeters, so that higher notes sound brighter. In addition, we gave careful consideration to sound propagation direction when positioning these speakers. With these great advancements in the digital piano’s acoustic design, we have achieved excellent sound quality over the full length of the keyboard and made the instrument much more expressive. What’s more, the pair of 15W amps built into each P-255 can deliver a very powerful sound.
Designed to faithfully emulate a real piano
In addition to a simple yet elegant design, the P255 features a rounded finish, much like a real piano, and is available in two colors, black and white. While the overall number of buttons has been reduced for a smarter appearance, this digital piano is still very easy to operate. And as with grand pianos, synthetic leather has been used for the music stand. In terms of sound, meanwhile, we have taken many steps to make playing a more enjoyable experience, such as adding spaces that work as tone escapement, meaning that the player can also enjoy a clearer sound. Optional extras such as the L255 and LP255 make playing the P-255 much more like playing a real piano, even at home.
Spice up your performances with built-in rhythm tracks
Boasting new rhythm track functionality, the P255 comes complete with ten different rhythm patterns that are perfectly suited to pop, jazz, bossa nova, and many other types of music regularly performed on the piano. Using these rhythms, you can easily add spice to your performances and accentuate the mood of individual songs. When you start a rhythm track, the P255 begins with an intro section; and when you stop it, the instrument plays an ending to bring your song to a neat and tidy end. This function is perfect for singers who accompany themselves and for other live performers. What’s more, you can also adjust the tempo of rhythm tracks to use them in place of a metronome, which makes practice more fun.
Vibrant range of voices
In addition to piano voices, you can enjoy playing organs, strings, synth, bass, and a wide variety of other instrument sounds on the P255. This digital piano also lets you change voices to suit individual songs and to layer different sounding voices, allowing you to explore many other interesting sounds besides the piano.
