One of the main concerns of piano players when purchasing a digital piano is related to the feel of the keyboard when they play.
Some of the things that players are specifically concerned with include whether they can feel the weight of the keys in their fingers as with a weighted acoustic piano keyboard; whether the keyboard will respond accurately when they play quicker passages; whether there are any inconsistencies between how hard they play the keys and the sound that results; and whether the keyboard offers a sufficient soft-to-loud dynamic range.
The GHS keyboards used in the P Series thus far have received high praise from customers for the excellent balance and ease of playing that was mentioned above.
The newly developed and more compact GHC (Graded Hammer Compact) keyboard on the new P Series reproduces the playing comfort of its predecessors in every way.
Further, the keyboard unit is more compact than in previous models, while still offering an outstanding playing feel.
This model features the sound of a Yamaha full concert grand, the CFIIIS: the origin of Yamahaâ€™s premier concert grand pianos, the CFX.
The sound was sampled from a piano with a bright, transparent tone with a spacious treble and an overall solid sonic feel.
In addition, the P-145 features a damper resonance function that reproduces the rich resonance sound you hear when pressing the damper pedal, for an even fuller sound.
We hope that you will enjoy the profoundly deep character of this instrumentâ€™s sound, so characteristic of that of a real grand piano. It goes without saying that this instrument doesnâ€™t require tuning.
One trouble that plagues pianists is that the acoustic piano is not an instrument you normally carry with you wherever you go.
Another issue is that traditional pianos are often too large to fit into a room.
The P-145 provides a brilliant solution to these problems. With its stylish designâ€”the most compact in the P Seriesâ€”this model blends well with the decor of any room.
With the optional soft case, you can take the P-145 with you to the studio, to a party, to live gigs, or on a tripâ€”whenever you need it.
By linking the P-145 with Yamahaâ€™s dedicated â€œSmart Pianistâ€ digital piano app, you can intuitively perform all operations on the P-145 from the screen of your smart device. Thereâ€™s no longer any need to pull out the manual to see how things work.
*When connecting a smart device to a musical instrument to use the app, you can either use a cable or connect wirelessly using the Yamaha UD-BT01 (sold separately; for iOS only).
The P-145 is a design that perfectly embodies the expression, â€œless is more.â€ Most people who love playing the piano as their instrument donâ€™t want a lot of rarely used features. The P-145 offers a simple, modern form factor to meet the needs of such people.
The Smart Pianist app mentioned above comes with PDF scores of 303 classical pieces for practice such as Bayer, BurgmÃ¼ller, Czerny, Hanon and more, which you are free to display and use on the screen of your smart device.
