The best-selling Yamaha P-Series set the industry standard for what a compact, stylish digital piano should be. As the latest addition to this series, the P-255 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. With Yamahas knowledge of digital audio and over 125 years of experience building fine acoustic pianos, you can rest assured that the P-255 will meet and exceed your expectations of a portable digital piano. Optional extras such as the matching L-255 furniture stand and the LP-255 piano-style 3-pedal unit make the P-255 a pleasure to look at and play, even at home.
The P-255 uses the Pure CF Sound Engine to produce its piano Voices. As the only digital piano in our P-Series to feature the following three functions, the P-255 can also recreate the characteristic acoustics of the grand piano sound in a more realistic fashion.
Key-off Samples- This feature reproduces the slight change in sound at the instant you remove your fingers from the keys. Whats more, different key-off sounds are produced for staccato and legato playing.
Sustain Sampling- The resonance of the soundboard and strings heard when the damper pedal is used has been sampled in order to recreate this acoustic effect. The P-255 responds to how deep you depress the pedal.
String Resonance- When the hammer of a grand piano strikes its string, the other strings will also resonate. The P-255 can reproduce this effect using its String Resonance feature
