New! Yamaha YDP-162B Digital Piano

Yamaha recently announced the release of their latest digital piano, the YDP-162B. It replaces the current model, YDP-161.

The YDP-161 is suitable for advanced players as well as beginners, and features Yamaha's Graded Hammer action with Synthetic Ivory Keytops. The action is weighted to match the resistance of hammers in a grand piano. And now Synthetic Ivory Keytops give that porous, tactile feel you would only expect from an acoustic piano manufacturer like Yamaha. Its surface absorbs finger moisture allowing serious players to comfortably play for longer periods of time.

The YDP-161 has the new PureCF Sound Engine, which features the meticulous recording of Yamaha's acclaimed concert grand piano. This recording contains a number of dynamic levels from pianissimo to fortissimo, so you can experience the delicate touch of a soft passage or the pure power of two-handed chords.

Yamaha P-105 New Features

The new Yamaha P105 digital piano, which was recently introduced, has several features that are new to the Yamaha P Series digital pianos.

The first and probably most important new feature, is a new sound source called Pure CF sound engine. A first for the P-series digitals. The piano sound was recorded from Yamaha's renowned CFIIIS concert grand piano, which is heard on stages all over the world.

Secondly, Yamaha has added Pianist Styles that turn simple chords into exciting accompaniments. Just play a chord and the Pianist Style gives you a full piano accompaniment. No need to make your hands dance between chords anymore! 10 built-in Styles offer a variety of backings to fit your performance and help you sound great!

Yamaha has always had rhythms on its portable keyboards and Clavinova CVP pianos, but they've never appeared on the P Series - until now. Ten basic drum patterns put the "fun" back into practicing and are a practical alternative to a metronome. You can also turn your solo act into a two-piece band where the drummer is always on time, doesn't miss a beat, rush or drag!.

And finally, Yamaha has added back the AUX LINE OUT jacks (that were removed from the most recent model). They allow you to connect to a computer sound card, mixing console or powered speakers - great for recording or performing live. Since it's a true line-output, the built-in speakers remain on for monitoring as opposed to switching OFF when using the more common headphone output. The P-105 also has USB TO HOST to connect directly to your computer for use with various education, notation and music production applications.

These newly added features to the P-105 make it an important upgrade from the previous P-Series models, and at $599.99, it's a real deal. If you've been waiting to get the most "bang" for your buck, we think the P105 is it. There are two modes available, P105 black and P105 white. You can add an optional matching stand and 3-pedal unit to make your package complete.

Yamaha P155 Digital Piano

The Yamaha P155 is part of a long heritage of excellent electric pianos dating back to the early 1980's. In the 70's we had the CP models (CP30 and CP70), that were later followed by the PF analog pianos. All of these models were well received by players, and some - believe it or not - are still around. We see them in our repair shop from time to time getting broken keys replaced.

The Yamaha P155 digital piano is geared toward the gigging musician who requires quality piano touch and tone. It is also ideal for home use or as a practice piano. It comes in three different finishes - wood grain, black and silver - and features include quality sound and a Graded Hammer Effect key action capable of building proper finger technique, and a Yamaha Three Year Warranty.

The natural-sounding four-layer piano sample is a breakthrough at this price range. Depending on how hard a note is struck, one of four recordings will play, offering an unprecedented level of dynamic range and tonal expression for a digital piano. A new Damper Resonance effect emulates the real harmonic overtones of each individual note, taking acoustic realism to the next level.

Because it takes up so little space, the P155 is ideal for customers who live in apartments. When it's time to turn up the volume, the P155 relies on built-in speakers powered by a high-efficiency stereo amplifier, but it can also be connected to an external amplifier through 1/4-in. line-level outputs with variable volume control. If volume is an issue, just plug in headphones.

Yamaha YDP181 Arius 88-Key Digital Piano

The Yamaha Arius YDP181 88-key weighted digital piano first shipped in the summer of 2010. It is the replacement for the best selling YDP223, which began shipping in November 2002. An eight year lifespan for a digital piano in this day and age is incredible!

As the replacement for the Yamaha YDP223, the YDP181 has some big shoes to fill, but based on its specifications and sales, it is doing an admiral job.One of the most noticeable differences is the sound. The YDP181 features High Resolution piano samples with damper resonance and 128 note polyphony (the YDP223 had 64). Other new features include a 2-track, 3 song sequencer and USB TO DEVICE port for storing your data.

With the Graded Hammer Effect keyboard, lower notes on the keyboard have a heavier touch, just as on a traditional acoustic piano, while the higher ones are more responsive to lighter playing. The GH keyboard features an extra key sensor capable of reproducing fast repetitive playing of a single note with perfect articulation, and the matte finish of the black keys enhances the keyboard's luxurious appearance.

If you've been wanting a digital piano, but can't make up your mind, take a look at the Yamaha YDP181. It has a long heritage and has proven it's up to the task.

New Yamaha MOX Music Production Synthesizers

    With the introduction of the new Yamaha MOX synthesizers, Yamaha has once again “upped the ante” in the world of synthesizers. Yamaha has a long history of making great sounding and feature laden synths - even before the DX7 in 1983 - and that history continues today with the introduction of the new Yamaha MOX Music Production Synthesizers, MOX8 and MOX6.  
    These two synths are identical except for the number and type of keys. The MOX8 features the 88 key Yamaha Graded Hammer Standard action, and the MOX6 has a newly developed 61 key semi-weighted keyboard action that has been designed and adjusted so that you easily and expressively play the rich variety of different sounds in the instrument. They weigh in at 32.6 pounds and 15.4 pounds respectively. They are truly portable, weighing 50% less than the comparable Motif models!   
    The new MOX combines the Motif XS sound engine, 1217 voices and 355MB of waveforms, thousands of arpeggiator patterns, sequencer, MIDI controller functions, and advanced USB audio computer integration together in one, lightweight keyboard. Add to that all the other features and an affordable price, and you’ve got a very powerful synthesizer workstation.
