We got this for our son who takes lessons, and I hoped it would reignite my own playing...and it has. The sound & touch is amazing. Haven't discovered all the special features yet, but have found the built-in metronome to be useful. Guitar Center was the only online vendor that made it easy for me to know that I was getting the bench with this order. Very, very pleased with the piano and would highly recommend it.
This keyboard is really enjoyable. If you are looking for a great sound for a grand piano, than this is the right one for you. I had this thing for over 2 years. And it works like nothing else. If you are looking for a keyboard this is the one for you.
This is an excellent piece of equipment, a beautiful piece of furniture, and a perfect alternative to an acoustic piano if your home does not permit the space. It looks, feels, and sounds like a grand piano but looks like a smaller upright piano. Customer is completely satisfied!
I bought my piano in 2003. It has been nothing but a pleasure to play. Action is very good. I wish it had better organ sounds, something more like a b3.I've played pianos that cost much more and don't think this one can be topped without spending a lot more money. If you're looking for a great digital piano, this one is worth looking at.
When I first started looking at digital pianos, I wanted one with great action. I sure found it. The YDP-223 is everything I was looking for at a great price. I've played digitals costing a whole lot more that fell far short of this model. Yamaha hit it out of the park! I'ts a real pleasure to play this fine instrument.
We settled on the Yamaha YDP223 and are very pleased.The sound is very good. Its not literally the same as an acoustic piano, but its certainly very close. And any difference is more than made up for by the variety of great sounds the Yamaha can make. The other features, such as the built in metronome and the recorder, are very nice.We hae two daughters who are taking lessons, and their interest has certainly been reinvigorated by this instrument. It looks great, and has a solid, quality feel to it. We are totally pleased.
I actually own a stripped version of this called the P120 which we purchased back in 2002. The only difference is they made it look more like a piano but the features are totally the same. It's an excellent keyboard because it's cheap, it feels like a real piano and never needs tuning.
Owned the Yamaha for about 18 months as it plays beautifully with simple controls and first class piano sound reproduction which is what this digital piano is all about. It is apparently the same as the higher priced "Clavinova" series and is sold under the straight Yamaha name for marketing reasons. Bought it to use in the UK where prices are much higher.
The sound, the touch, the quality of this piano is tremendous for the price. I sold a 400-pound 80-year-old upright because I didn't want to send it when I moved. I bought this electronic piano thinking that it would sound good and never need tuning, and it could easily be moved by 2 people.It simply sounds wonderful, like a well-tuned regular piano. The samples are marvelous, and I found I can combine two sounds to create other sounds. For example, combining one of the piano sounds with one of the harpsichord sounds makes a great honkey-tonk sound. I love the second electric piano sound and the jazz organ, which sounds like a hot B-3. And it looks great too. I was expecting contact-paper covered cardboard and particle board, but it's looks much better than that. The touch is exactly like a conventional piano.My only comment is that it takes both hands to transpose, making it difficult in the middle of a piece. It would be cool if they could make it a pedal function.All in all, for the price they're asking (including the bench!) you can't beat it. If I had the money I'd buy a second one for our downstairs.
When I first got this, I was just like, oh boy, here we go again, another HUGE bill on visa. and when I used, BAM I was speechless. If you want to buy this, GET IT> I luv the sound that it plays, and with 14 musical instruments to choose from, youll have a blast. When you play somthing really bad, you will sound like a pro with this one device!
