Yamaha P121 73 Note Digital Piano -
The Yamaha P121 73 Note Digital Piano covers many bases, ensuring its perfect for both a student new to piano, as well as an accomplished artist seeking the best from their gear.
State of the art technology and over a century of piano expertise comes together to create the pure CF sound engine, championed by fan favourite models like the CFIIIS concert grand piano, of which the main voice of the P121 piano is derived from. With 24 voices built in you have many options for your tone, so you can be sure to expect rich reverberation, highly variable dynamics, deep expression and above all else, top quality sound every time you play with it. Additional features like the string resonance and damper resonance DSP create faithfully reproduced natural sounds you'd hear from an acoustic piano such as the sympathetic resonance from unplayed strings, and further proves Yamaha are creating the most organic and authentic sounding digital piano they possibly can.
With fewer keys than most digital pianos, you might expect reduced performance on this Yamaha P121 with 73 GHS (Graded Hammer Standard), however the fewer keys and more compact profile allows maximum portability for a piano of this size, without compromising on performance. The keys feel great, with a realistic to life action where the lower register keys are heavier than the higher register, plus the matte black keys are designed to absorb moisture without getting slippery, further ensuring the action remains the same.
Easy to set up and pack down, with two built in 7 watt speakers and 'Table EQ' options to suit whatever surface you're playing on, this piano is perfect for quick jam sessions with friends as well as home practise and small performances via the Auxiliary 1/4 Jack output. A headphone output located on the front of the piano is ideal for practising at home without upsetting any neighbours, and the Stereophonic Optimiser feature distribute the sound around your headphone to create the illusion the sound is naturally coming from the piano in front of you, not the headphones.
As for educational purposes, the dual, split and duo function are present in the P121, allowing lots of room for musical expression as well as a means to play with a partner. A built in library of drums and bass rhythms provides the opportunity to work on timing with a choice of styles to suit your mood, and the two track (one song) recording facility allows your to capture your jams and save them for later on your PC via USB to host connection.
To sum up, the Yamaha P121 is a fantastic quality, highly portable digital piano with some of the sounds and features you've heard of from higher end Yamaha models, distilled into a seriously affordable package. If you're seeking a practise, recording or jam piano, the P121 has everything you need!
