The P-45 is the lowest-cost, 88-note, weighted action digital piano that Yamaha offers. This digital piano has a basic set of features, ideal for the needs of the beginner piano student. It features 88 blocked-end semi-weighted keys, built-in speakers and best of all, Yamaha's legendary piano sound. It features a complement of other common keyboard timbres as well, including electric pianos, harpsichord and strings.
Authentic to the touch Yamaha's GHS (Graded Hammer Standard) weighted action has heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end, just like the hammers inside an acoustic piano. Great for the aspiring pianist, practicing on the GHS action builds the proper finger technique for when the time comes to perform on an acoustic piano. Plus the matte finish of the black keys are less slippery when playing for extended periods of time.
Tried and true, Yamaha's classic sound engine for realistic tone AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) sampling uses digital technology to record the sound of an acoustic piano. AWM Stereo Sampling creates a deeper, richer and more spacious sound by using pairs of waveforms (L and R) captured with two microphones. The P-45 uses AWM to play one sample per key at varying levels of volume and timbre.
A compact and lightweight design makes it easy to get around Slim and stylish form with a depth of less than 12 inches, the P-45 requires little space. At only 25 lb. with a built-in sound system, it can be easily moved anywhere in your home or even used for performance outside.
Simple, single-button operation Various P-45 settings can be changed with a single button. Hold down the "GRAND PIANO/FUNCTION" button and press the keyboard to change Voices, play demo sources, configure the metronome and more.
Note: A stand, bench and pedal are all available for this unit, but sold separately.
