The Yamaha P-255 contemporary digital piano is for all musicians looking for an instrument suitable for both serious practice and live performance. Thanks to its portable design and built-in speaker system, the P-255 can be played in any place or setting you desire, with or without external amplification. And with the first-of-its-kind Controller App for iOS, you can customize your piano sound or quickly adjust your favorite settings with touch-screen ease-of-use.

Despite its slim, portable design, the P-255 offers an impressive range of performance capabilities. In terms of keyboard, piano Voices and sound reinforcement, this is the very best digital piano in the P-Series. Whether you’re already an expert or new to the piano, you’ll love playing this instrument.

  • Synthetic ivory keytops with moisture absorption properties
  • Pure CF Sampling recreates the Yamaha CFIIIS concert grand piano sound
  • Circular speakers for a well-balanced tone and projection
  • Sound Boost button instantly provides more volume with greater presence
  • Free P-255 controller app for iPhone or iPad gives you more control of the keyboard*

*An Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter/iPad Camera Connection Kit or a dedicated Yamaha cable such as the i-MX1/i-UX1 is required for connection. Sold separately.

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.
