Main Advantage:

Its keys are weighted, so it is quite realistic, similar to a grand or upright piano. It also has 64-note polyphony, so you can make the chords that any song needs.

 

Main disadvantage:

It does not have L and R auxiliary outputs to connect it to mixing consoles or external amplifiers, however, it does have two built-in speakers and a headphone output, so it will be useful for studying at home.

 

Verdict: 9.8 / 10

This is one of the most realistic electronic instruments, so it will help you get used to playing classical piano. This is thanks to the fact that the low and middle keys weigh more than the high ones, imitating acoustic pianos very well and helping the fingers to be effectively strengthened.

Main Features Explained

 

Sounds

It is a digital piano with 10 instrument sounds, including grand pianos, electric pianos, organs, harpsichord, vibraphone, and symphonic strings. With them you can play various types of musical genres, such as gospel, blues, jazz, salsa, ballad, pop, etc. In addition, these sounds have digital effects such as Reverb or Chorus.

With the function key you can choose the sound you want, you can even play symphonic strings and grand piano at the same time, which is useful when playing romantic, ecclesiastical music and making musical backgrounds to your songs.

Also, we mention that this digital piano comes with a Sustain pedal, which will serve to prolong the sound of the strings without holding down the keys.

Another aspect that makes this instrument stand out is its 64-note polyphony, which means that it will be possible to play many complex chords and make melodies at the same time. Similarly, thanks to the polyphony you can practice orchestral arrangements with this piano.

Yamaha pianos are characterized by facilitating musical learning and this model is not far behind, since it has complete songs that you can play while you play them. It even has demos that show how each piano sound sounds.

Design

This digital piano has a simple design that is comfortable to use. In addition, according to various opinions on the Internet it is light, so you can move it from one place to another with ease. Of course, it doesn’t weigh the same as a Yamaha electronic keyboard, but for an imitation of grand pianos it is quite light at 11.5 kg.

Its dimensions also favor the user, who can transport it in the car without any problem. It measures 132.6 cm long and 29.5 cm deep, with 88 black and white keys; the latter have matte finishes. Likewise, thanks to its size, the musician can install it for use in almost any part of the home.

The package includes the power adapter, user manual and music stand, so you can start using this digital piano right away.

This is perhaps one of the best Yamaha pianos , because it offers built-in speakers, so you can listen to it without having to connect it to an external sound system, a quality that not all models of the brand offer. In the same way, it has a headphone output, in which it is possible to connect headphones and listen to what you are playing in private, without disturbing your neighbors.

 

Effectiveness

This instrument brings GHS technology, also known as Standard Graduated Hammer, one of the characteristics that most influences its price.

The GHS converts light keys into weighted keys, which is useful for getting started on the piano, because it demands more strength in the pianist’s hands, strengthening and increasing skill. Due to this technology, when the student plays a grand piano they will not feel much difference in the weight of the keys. The hammers are graduated in three zones, emulating the strings of a real piano, the bass keys are heavier than the medium and treble.

And as for the functions of this piano, we can highlight the metronome, which you can use to study songs, exercises, scales, etc. This can be adjusted according to the tempo you want, fast or slow, to progressively evolve in the execution of the instrument. Also, the metronome has volume adjustment, in case you want to lower or raise it a little, according to your preferences.

On the other hand, the student and the teacher will be able to take advantage of the Duo mode of this piano, since it separates the keyboard into 2 equal parts. In this way, repetition learning will be much more effective. In addition to this, this piano is very easy to use, because it has a function button to control the metronome, timbres, demos and songs.
