GrandTouch-S Keyboard Action

Piano players value the real-time feedback of a superior keyboard. The feel of a grand piano, and its dynamic response to player touch, is a quintessential element of the instrument. The Yamaha P-525 incorporates a GrandTouch-S keyboard, utilizing wooden keys with synthetic ivory and ebony tops.

Updated Grand Piano Samples

Portable series digital pianos receive their primary voices from sampling Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial acoustic grands. The P-525 includes an overhauled sample library of these famed instruments, providing greater expressive control than ever before. In addition to improved touch response, players can attain concert-level power, brilliance and brightness from their Yamaha P-525 digital piano. Furthering this endeavor is a 2-way speaker system capable of reproducing the piano’s full frequency range with tonal accuracy and minimal distortion. The P-525 also includes a Sound Boost setting that increases volume and applies EQ to help the instrument cut through small ensembles, such as an acoustic jazz trio.

Cutting-Edge Modeling Technology

The flagship Yamaha P-525 digital piano derives its unparalleled sound and touch accuracy from powerful modeling technologies. Grand Expression Modeling closely simulates the mechanics of an acoustic piano, right down to the hammers, strings, dampers and other internal components. It provides players the physicality and control they need to deliver an expressive performance. Additionally, Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) mimics the richness of a concert grand piano, including the sympathetic vibrations between strings, as well as how the instrument’s internal components and body resonate as one. Finally, the Yamaha P-525 takes advantage of Binaural Sampling, generating immersive, three-dimensional sound for players on headphones.

Smart Pianist also stores your favorite presets for instant recall, intuitively placing the P-525’s most important controls at your fingertips. As a practice companion, the app can prepare chord charts pulled from songs stored on your device, so you can jam along any time.
