You understand that you're working with high quality whenever you are checking out electric pianos in the Yamaha digital piano range and the Yamaha p95 continues that proud heritage. This information is intended to be a top level review for people looking into this particular digital piano. I will look at a number of the features that make the Yamaha p95 as popular as it is.
The ultimate experience for the majority of piano players would have to be playing a Grand Piano. As much as we'd wish to, many folks will not be able to play one. Until such time as we do, we are able to enjoy playing the significantly more accessible electric piano that's built to emulate the sound and feel of a Grand Piano. The Yamaha p95 does as good a job, and perhaps a more satisfactory job, of simulating the Grand Piano than other models within a equivalent or marginally higher price bracket.
The capability of the Yamaha p95 to mimic the feel of the Grand Piano is dependant on the Graded Hammer action within the 88 full-sized keys. Graded Hammer action means that the keys have a different resistance depending on if they are high or low notes. In a standard piano each note is connected to a metallic string of different weight and size; longer, thicker for low notes, short and thinner for high notes. This means low notes have a slightly heavier amount of resistance in comparison with high notes which is the thing that the Graded Hammer action within the Yamaha P95 simulates really well. The final result is a much better playing experience as well as a much better platform for learning how to play the piano. This keyboard actually lets you change that resistance to one of four levels based on your playing style.
A digital piano may well feel wonderful to play but if the sound just isn't right then there would be hardly any point to it. You need not concern yourself with that with the Yamaha p95 as it offers the hallmark Yamaha quality sound via speakers which are more than up to the job. There is a small selection of different sounds available from this Yamaha digital piano such as the popular vibraphone and choir voices.
Other features and benefits
There are some extra features beyond the sound and feel of the keyboard that Yamaha decided to include in this electric piano. The true potential of the Yamaha p95 is showcased very well by the 50 pre-recorded tracks available on this digital piano. You can make the decision to save a recording of a particular performance and you also don't need to concern yourself with timing with the in-built metronome on hand to help you.
Users of this Yamaha digital piano oftentimes talk about how simple to use and intuitive it really is which means there is little need to make reference to the Yamaha p95 manual. This keyboard is also rather light meaning it's portable. No matter if you take this digital piano to gigs or whether you take to friends or family, there is very little chance of hurting your back any time you carry this keyboard.
How could the Yamaha p95 be better?
Any Yamaha p95 review with credibility needs to note a couple of the oversights with this electric keyboard. The primary gripe is that there aren't any USB ports to connect this keyboard to your computer. A midi-adapter can easily overcome this issue though. Another aspect that causes some remark is the fact that there are different keyboards which come with more 'bells and whistles'. Some investigation though shows that the other models usually cost much more or else be more like toys which lack detail around simulating the grand piano playing experience
All things considered, this keyboard is a great one and is not too expensive If you appreciate the focus on top quality that Yamaha provides but don't have thousands to spend, then a Yamaha p95 is worth serious thought.
