Overview

The P-45 is the lowest-cost, 88-note, Graded Hammer Standard weighted action digital piano that Yamaha offers. This digital piano has a basic set of features, ideal for the needs of the beginner piano student. It features 88 blocked-end Graded Hammer Standard weighted keys, built-in speakers and best of all, Yamaha's legendary piano sound. It features a complement of other common keyboard timbres as well, including electric pianos, harpsichord and strings.

Authentic to the touch
Yamaha's GHS (Graded Hammer Standard) weighted action has heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end, just like the hammers inside an acoustic piano. Great for the aspiring pianist, practicing on the GHS action builds the proper finger technique for when the time comes to perform on an acoustic piano. Plus the matte finish of the black keys are less slippery when playing for extended periods of time.

Tried and true, Yamaha's classic sound engine for realistic tone
AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) sampling uses digital technology to record the sound of an acoustic piano. AWM Stereo Sampling creates a deeper, richer and more spacious sound by using pairs of waveforms (L and R) captured with two microphones. The P-45 uses AWM to play one sample per key at varying levels of volume and timbre.

A compact and lightweight design makes it easy to get around
Slim and stylish form with a depth of less than 12 inches, the P-45 requires little space. At only 25 lb. with a built-in sound system, it can be easily moved anywhere in your home or even used for performance outside.

Simple, single-button operation
Various P-45 settings can be changed with a single button. Hold down the "GRAND PIANO/FUNCTION" button and press the keyboard to change Voices, play demo sources, configure the metronome and more.

Note: A stand and bench are available for this unit, but sold separately.

I love this digital piano, it has the feel and sound of an expensive grand piano not to mention the other sounds that are included. This is my second Yamaha digital keyboard, I still have my first Yamaha 61 key and this is an upgrade. I've tried all the others and this is the best quality and value. Yamaha makes great keyboards and have excellent customer service if you need them. I've never had a problem with my first one that's about 10 years old and runs like new and they provide learning tools to customers on their website after you register.

Although no one in our house plays keyboards, we needed one in the house for those times for impromptu sessions. So the goal was to keep the cost down, but still have a sound and feel that was acceptable. The Yamaha seemed to fit the bill. It's got NO bells and whistles, but if the piano voice is your primary concern - this will work for you.

    Comments about Yamaha P-45 88-Key Weighted Action Digital Piano:

    I just purchased this Yamaha P-45 as an upgrade to another Yamaha keyboard I had. I was looking for something with a great sound, realistic feel, and simple to use for performance reasons. My previous keyboard had too many sound options (nearly 500 sounds and drum backing tracks), so I wanted something more simple but yet professional sounding. I did not intend to spend over $400, but the sound quality was not even a close comparison to any of the other keyboards in the department. I saw this as an investment for my music, and spending a little more on a quality instrument definitely pays off in the long run. My only objection is that it's a little heavy for me to transport to performances, but I'm planning on finding a case with wheels.

    Overall, if you're wanting a piano that has realistic weighted keys and a professional grand piano sound, this is the one for you. Look into the Guitar Center Gear Card financing option if it is a little out of your price range. As a college student, this is how I've been able to afford all of my gear.

    Comments about Yamaha P-45 88-Key Weighted Action Digital Piano:

    The quality of the bass tones on the grand piano is far superior to keyboards in the 1000$ range. The only weird thing going on with this keyboard is that the sustain pedal doesnt work right if u have it pressed when you turn off the keyboard. You press the sustain pedal, turn off the keyboard, n turn it back on again for it to work correctly. Apparently the polarity on the pedal gets reversed. I'm not sure if that's normal on other keyboards as well but it's a little annoying. Having said that I absolutely love the keyboard, the sound and feel is far superior to keyboards in a higher price range.

                    I wanted to return to the piano after a 30 year absence and was ready to look for a deal on a decent used piano, then my husband reminded me that I'd spend another chunk of $$ to have it moved not to mention where would it fit?!! So, long story short I took a chance and ordered this after reading numerous reviews. I had no experience with digital pianos, but, I figured it would be okay in a pinch. This really exceeded my expectations in every way, especially the feel of the keys and it produces an amazing real piano sound for an electronic instrument.
