The P255 joins Yamaha’s P-series digital pianos with some of the most advanced features yet rolled out in this series, whilst retaining the portability, lightweight (17.3kg), and expressive sound capabilities of the previous pianos in the P-series.

Sound

The P255 is the first digital piano in Yamaha’s P-series to feature a maximum polyphony of 256 across the full 88 keys, this means that every harmony possible on an acoustic piano is also possible on the P255.

The piano is driven by the Pure CF Sound Engine with tones taken directly from recordings of Yamaha grand pianos. This gives an excellent sound quality, able to replicate the resonance of a grand piano or the intimacy of soft playing. In conjunction with this the P255 incorporates string resonance technology for the first time in the P-series, giving the sound the same complexity that occurs with the natural vibrations of un-played strings in a grand piano.

Technique

The P255 uses Yamaha’s Graded Hammer system, copying the weighting of the keys of an acoustic piano; this feature can be adjusted to make the effect more or less pronounced. The key tops are made from synthetic ivory, which are moisture absorbent and avoid slippery keys after extended playing time.

Two more P-series firsts are the key-off sampling that changes the tone slightly when fingers are removed from the keys, just like an acoustic piano; and sustain sampling of the damper pedal, the sound of which comes directly from the an acoustic piano and gives the same effect (please note that the three pedals and stand are sold separately from the main piano and can be removed for storage or transport).

Electronics

The round speakers enable a more natural vibration and, with their built-in tweeters, help to ensure rich low and bright high notes. In addition the P255 features sound booster technology and manual EQ sliders so you can adjust the tone of the piano to your personal taste. These settings can be locked in when external speakers are attached, avoiding any accidental change during live performance; the internal speakers will also be muted when external ones are attached.

For extra flavour the P255 includes 24 pre-set voices from grand piano to harpsichord that you can adjust to fit the mood of any song. There are also 10 rhythm tracks from various musical genres, which can be speeded up or slowed down and thus act as a metronome to your playing.

The P255 has a USB Flash Drive to enable recording and connection to computers. It has a headphone jack for private playing and for the connection of larger speakers.

With its unbeatable polyphony and functionality, and its outstanding sound quality, the Yamaha P255 is a digital piano with performance that would impress a professional musician, whilst also being cheap and simple enough to suit a beginner.
