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 youíre already an expert or new to the piano, youíll 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. Whatís 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. Itís 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, youíll find that notes sound more beautiful when held and while sustaining. And thereís 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.

The P-255 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 P-255 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. Whatís 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 P-255, 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 P-255 can reproduce this effect using its String Resonance function.

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. In addition, we gave careful consideration to sound propagation direction when positioning these speakers. With these great advancements in the digital pianoís acoustic design, we have achieved excellent sound quality over the full length of the keyboard and made the instrument much more expressive. Whatís more, the pair of 15W amps built into each P-255 can deliver a very powerful sound.
