Yamaha P-255 Overview

The best portable digital piano

If you are looking for a digital piano that is suitable for both home practice and live performance, the P-255 digital piano is definitely the best choice for you! The compact and portable design makes the P-255 digital piano suitable for playing anywhere.

Simple and smooth appearance, easy to carry, P-255 digital piano has perfect performance. Keyboard, tone, resonance, each is the top of the Yamaha P series digital piano. Whether you are an expert or an amateur, you will absolutely love this perfect digital piano.

Comfortable imitation ivory keys will definitely let you put it down

P-255 is equipped with GH imitation ivory keys with similar touch to grand pianos, presenting a natural touch that is heavy in the bass range and light in the treble range, and has superior moisture absorption to prevent sweat from causing slippery hands, allowing people to maintain good performance for a long time. The perfect playing feel is also suitable for fast finger movements, allowing you to easily play any style of music.
The keys of the P-255 can also be set to four different velocity sensitivity. For example, when practicing Hanon, the velocity sensitivity can be turned up a bit; in addition, it can also be set to have a louder volume when playing softly. You can set freely.

The top 256-tone maximum number of simultaneous sounds in the digital piano industry

The P-255 is the first in Yamaha’s P-Series series digital pianos to use the highest-spec 256-tone maximum number of simultaneous sounds. Therefore, the playing will be smoother, the sustain tone will be more beautiful, and there is no need to worry about playing complex songs. There will be a sound interruption. This feature also brings the experience of playing the P-255 closer to that of a grand piano.

A sound source that perfectly expresses the sound of a grand piano

The P-255 is equipped with the "Pure CF Piano Sound Sampling Sound Source", which can perfectly present the sound of a grand piano dedicated to Yamaha concerts. At the same time, the P-255 is also the only digital piano in the P series equipped with the following technologies, which can easily present a playing platform. The delicate dynamic performance and emotion of the piano:

"Key-off sampling" technology can capture the subtle sound changes when the keys are released, and different key-off timbres also make playing staccato and sustain techniques feel more realistic.
"Sustain Sampling" technology samples the sound changes produced when the pedal is taken, and the P-255 reproduces a more realistic tone.
"String Resonance" Technology A technology that resonates other strings when hammers hit the strings, perfectly reproducing the high-quality sound of a grand piano.

Sophisticated acoustic design makes the sound more detailed and realistic

The P-255 concentrates highly natural vibration circular speakers to create a balanced sound and makes the bass sound more full, a built-in tweeter makes the treble sound brighter, and a pair of built-in 15W amplifiers make the sound more powerful. In addition, the direction of sound propagation is also considered in the design. With these advanced technical designs we have successfully designed a stunning full size digital piano.

Faithful to the design of a traditional piano

In addition to having a simple and elegant design, the P-255 has a curved and smooth appearance like a real piano, and is also available in black and white. Although the number of control buttons on the panel is reduced, the appearance is more streamlined and operation is easier.
Back to the sound, we use a lot of techniques to make the playing experience more enjoyable for the player, such as increasing the space for tone escapement so that the player can enjoy a cleaner tone. The extra kickstand also makes the P-255 more like a traditional piano.

The P-255 plays like a real piano, but at the same time can help you express all kinds of creativity, perfect for players who like to play a variety of styles to explore new possibilities in music.

Built-in rhythm makes performance more interesting

Featuring a new rhythm function with ten different rhythm patterns: such as pop, jazz, Bossa nova or other styles often played on the piano. Use rhythm to emphasize the mood of the song and make your performance more exciting.
When using the rhythm, the P-255 will automatically play an intro, and when the rhythm is stopped, it will also be accompanied by a concise and powerful ending, which is ideal for self-singing singers or live performances. You can also adjust the tempo or use a metronome to make practice more fun.

Diverse tones

In addition to the must-have piano sounds, you can also enjoy a variety of different instrument sounds on the P-255, including organ, strings, bass, and even synth sounds. You can switch between different timbres between songs, and you can also do timbre overlays of different timbres, allowing you to explore musicality beyond the piano.

The P-255 is also the only current P-series model that allows you to quickly change the tone, volume, and other functions you often need while playing. Therefore, the P-255 is very suitable for use in different situations and different needs.

Use the equalizer lever to adjust the tone to suit your environment and your own unique tone

The P-255 has three independent equalizer levers for low, mid and high frequency, allowing you to easily change the current tone to match the song or the environment you are playing. Not only does it make your performance more exciting, but it can also make your performance more unique, such as using the equalizer to adjust the high frequency to create a shiny and clear tone, or adjust the low frequency to create a powerful tone.

Sound Boost volume boost function makes the sound more prominent

Example of the sound waveform produced when playing a melody

With just a touch of a button, the P-255 can easily boost volume and accentuate timbre. The Sound Boost volume boost function allows you to increase the volume without causing distortion of the sound, maintaining a clean sound and good dynamics.
When playing with other instruments, the Sound Boost volume boost function can make the P-255's tone stand out and punch. And when soloing, playing in a wide square, or playing and singing, it also maintains a clear and beautiful tone.

More Features That Make Live Playing More Fun

When the P-255 is connected to external speakers, the built-in speakers can be muted; the control panel can be temporarily locked to prevent accidental changes to settings during performance; these functions ensure that important performances will not go wrong.

Recording with a USB stick

The P-255 can record using a USB flash drive. In the past models could only use an external device for recording, but now just plug in a USB stick directly. The format of the recording is .wav, which means that you can play it on the computer or a device that can read the .wav file format immediately after recording, so that you can read the recording file or share it with your friends to listen to your wonderful performance.

Can be used with simple and intuitive control APP

Simply download the free P-255 Controller APP and connect the P-255 to your iPhone or iPad to control the various functions of the P-255 in a simple and intuitive way. The visual control interface allows you to easily try functions that you have never tried before (many functions are only available on digital pianos), which will definitely make you experience better playing fun. You can also use this app to store your preferences.
