Yamaha P255

This is an awesome sounding piano. Great action and for the price and weight, it's a good piano for to have. Weight is perfect for transporting between gigs.

Fantastic upgraded stage piano!!!

My biggest complaint when playing live has been the lack of EQ sliders. I play solo jazz piano and want the big lush sounds I get from my grand piano and wasn't getting it. I was told about this board last week and got excited. I then watch a YouTube demonstrating that really blew me away. Two days ago. Bought it. Today. Played it. Absolutely awesome!!! Oh yea, my last board was the P-155... This upgrade blows it away....

She's A Beauty!

If you need a digital/stage piano that perfectly replicates the sound and feel of a real topnotch concert grand, the P-255 is spot on. I can't get over the look and sound and the easy way I can navigate around the buttons and sliders. A purchase of this amount I worry about buyer's remorse- but here no way and no how. There is absolutely nothing cheap about it-first class all the way. I wish my father was still alive to marvel at the P-255!

Amazing keyboard, sound and keybed action the best....

First of all i do not own this amazing digital piano but soon i will. I have tried this keyboard at my local music store and i was just blown away and how it sounds and feel of the keybed action. I have in plan in buying a digital piano with some useful onboard sounds and some good keybed feel and this is it. Know that i own my apple macbook and with lots of mainstage presets! this is the perfect midi controller for my cburch gigs!!! By the way i will be ordering this trough sweetwater, best customer service ever. :) #Worship Sounds #Mainstage 3 #NI The Giant, cant wait....

Excellent Portable Piano with GREAT Sound!

I needed something lighter than my Korg Triton 88 weighted-note workstation for occasional out of the studio gigs, as well as I wanted something that looked nice in my music room. The Yamaha P255 (black) with the wooden stand and pedal board, built in speaker system, fit the bill nicely. It's portable enough to take out, and has very nice sounding acoustic piano simulations as well. Polyphony is excellent as are the sampled grand piano sounds, with the ability to EQ them from the onboard sliders which really makes this a live player's dream. I like EVERYTHING about it, the built in speaker system is quite adequate for most situations, certainly for home environments.I've played professionally for over 30 years and the touch, feel of the P255 is very very good. Couple all that with the expandabilty of being able to record backing tracks in CD quality and store them to the USB device on the front panel, for quick recall, then play along with, as well as Midi recording and this system is easlity expandable from other stage pianos in this price-range. The iOS/iPad or iPhone control app is also very very nice! For over a decade now, my Sales Engineer Chris McCown has been such a help to me in my music equipment acquisitions, and I think that speaks so well of Sweetwater's commitment to their customer base! Thanks once again Chris
