Realistic Piano Sound and Feel

If you're after excellent grand piano sound and feel on a budget, then you really can't do better than Yamaha's P-45 digital piano. This remarkably portable instrument combines Yamaha's acclaimed Graded Hammer Standard keybed with their time-tested AWM stereo sound engine, delivering the natural feel and sound that Sweetwater piano players have trusted for years. Between its compact frame, its USB/MIDI connectivity, and it's onboard performance features, your P-45 will serve you well at home, in the studio, and onstage.

The feel of a real concert grand piano

From the first time your fingers tickle the ivories on the P-45, you'll know why Yamaha digital pianos are known far and wide for having some of the best-feeling keys on the market. That's because the P-45 sport's Yamaha's Graded Hammer Standard keybed. This fully weighted keybed provides you with light response in the upper register and progressively heavier action the lower you play - just like the keys of an acoustic piano.

AWM sampling and built-in speaker system for realistic grand piano sound

Yamaha's AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) sampling employs digital technology to record an instrument's sound and then applies a high-quality digital filter to the recorded samples. Using pairs of waveforms captured by two microphones for Left and Right, AWM Stereo Sampling creates a deeper, richer and more spacious soundstage. You'll also appreciate the P-45's built-in 12W speaker system. Just turn it on and you can start performing - there's no need to connect any other gear. That makes the P-45 the perfect transition from an acoustic instrument to the benefits of a digital one. Plus, it's lightweight enough to take onstage with you, when you're ready to perform!

Compact, lightweight, and easy to use

Just like Yamaha's other P-series digital pianos, the P-45 sports a compact, lightweight, and contemporary design, giving you easy storage and effortless portability. And the P-45 is easy to use too. With its simple, streamlined interface, all you do to call up a glorious-sounding concert grand piano is hit the, um, "Grand Piano" button. And calling up any other patch is just as easy. The P-45 features ten stunningly realistic instruments, including electric piano, organs, harpsichord, vibraphone, and more. The P-45 is half-pedal capable with the optional FC3 pedal. A sustain footswitch and a music rest are included.

Yamaha P-45 88-key Digital Piano Features:
  • 88 Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) keys provide realistic acoustic piano feel
  • Detailed, full-stereo AWM sampling provides deeply rich grand piano sound
  • Add dimension to your sound with 4 reverb effect styles

Yamaha P-45 Digital Piano

This was a great deal. I have taken a few weeks to reply so I could get feedback from my son. He is 15 and has been playing for 9 years. He loves his new keyboard. Great sound for a great price. I loved the free shipping as well. I must also comment on the awesome customer service at Sweetwater. I received a confirmation email and a call "just to check if I had questions" before the product even shipped.Then it arrived in very secure packaging. Follow up emails t to be sure we were satisfied. I will recommend Sweetwater to everyone! Thank you!!


It's a great sounding piano . Love it.

yamaha p-35/p-45

Bought this piano for my theater (black-box 100 seat). Although I don't play, I've had 4 or 5 piano players use it in productions and they all have loved the feel and sound that this digital piano produces. Not a single complaint. My piano is a p-35 and it is my understanding that the p-45 is identical except for the usb plug on the p-45. I am considering starting lessons and wouldn't hesitate to buy another one. Great little unit that does exactly what it is supposed to do!

Great quality for the price.

Exceptional quality and "feel" for the price.

Best Digital Piano in it's class!

I've had this digital piano for over a week now and I absolutely love it. This is my second Yamaha keyboard I still have my first 61 key for over 10 years that works like new. Yamaha makes quality keyboards that are state of the art and built to last. They provide excellent customer service if you need them and provide free learning tools on their website to registered users.
