The Yamaha P-255 contemporary digital piano is for all musicians looking for an instrument suitable for both serious practice and live performance.

Impressive Piano Voices Reproduce the Sensation of Playing a Concert Grand Piano

The P-255 uses the Pure CF Sound Engine to produce its piano Voices. As the only digital piano in our P-Series to feature the following three functions, the P-255 can also recreate the characteristic acoustics of the grand piano sound in a more realistic fashion.

Key-off Samples- This feature reproduces the slight change in sound at the instant you remove your fingers from the keys. What’s more, different key-off sounds are produced for staccato and legato playing.

Sustain Sampling- The resonance of the soundboard and strings heard when the damper pedal is used has been sampled in order to recreate this acoustic effect. The P-255 responds to how deep you depress the pedal.

String Resonance- When the hammer of a grand piano strikes its string, the other strings will also resonate. The P-255 can reproduce this effect using its String Resonance feature.
