Yamaha P-255B P-Series 88-Key Digital Piano-Black

The P-255 contemporary digital piano is for all musicians looking for an instrument suitable for both serious practice and live performance. Thanks to its portable design, the P-255 can be played in any place or setting you desire.

Despite its slim, portable design, the P-255 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.

The lower keys are heavier to the touch and the higher ones are lighter, making the P-255 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 P-255 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.

The P-255 is the first P-Series model to offer top-class maximum polyphony of 256 notes. Thanks to this improvement, you’ll find that notes sound more beautiful when held and while sustaining. And there’s no need to worry any more about sounds cutting out when you play busy songs with lots of notes and intricate pedal work. This is yet another feature that makes playing the P-255 more like playing a grand piano.

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 P-255. Thanks to this design, lower notes in particular have a much richer tone. The P-255 also features built-in tweeters, so that higher notes sound brighter.

Boasting new rhythm track functionality, the P-255 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 P-255 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.

The P-255 can store your performances on a USB flash drive as audio songs. In the past, you would have had to connect external equipment in order to record in this way, but USB flash drives can now be plugged in directly. What’s more, these songs are stored in .wav format, meaning that you can conveniently play them back on a computer or transfer them to a portable music player. This makes it very easy to monitor how you are improving by comparing newer and older recordings, to share your songs with friends, and to enjoy music in countless other ways.

By simply downloading the free app P-255 Controller to your iPhone or iPad, you can control a wide range of the digital piano’s functions in a highly intuitive manner. This visual approach to configuring the instrument makes it easy to try out functions that you have never used before, and these functions—many of which are available only on digital pianos—are certain to make your playing experience more enjoyable. You can also use the app to store your favorite settings and recall them instantly whenever needed.
*An Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter/iPad Camera Connection Kit or dedicated Yamaha cable such as the i-MX1/i-UX1 is required for connection.
