    An 88-key digital piano with a graded-hammer keyboard and bench that's ideal for beginning students and experienced players alike.

    Yamaha's Arius Series digital pianos embody a blend of Yamaha's 100-year history of crafting world-class concert grand pianos and modern digital expertise to give you true piano sound and feel.

    The graded-hammer keyboard of the 88-key Yamaha YDP-161 digital piano makes it a true joy to play both in practice and in performance. The 3-level AWM dynamic stereo sampling voices deliver remarkably authentic sound. Moreover, the damper pedal includes a half-damper effect, giving you nuanced expressive control over the sustained sound. The Yamaha keyboard's dual voice capability lets you play 2 different instrument sounds at the same time, while a 2-track song recorder allows you to capture original musical ideas and performances.

    Graded Hammer (GH) keyboard:
    Just as on a traditional acoustic piano, lower notes on a GH keyboard have a heavier touch while the higher notes are more responsive to lighter playing. GH keyboards such as the one on this Yamaha Arius digital piano feature an extra key sensor capable of reproducing fast, repetitive playing of a single note with perfect articulation.

    Variable touch sensitivity:
    The Yamaha Arius electronic piano lets you select the hard, medium, or soft setting to match your playing style or finger strength. Turn off sensitivity for a fixed response setting, which is ideal when playing the organ.

    Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) dynamic stereo sampling:
    The Yamaha Arius piano comes equipped with AWM (Advanced Wave Memory), a sampling system that creates the realism of an acoustic instrument by using digital technology to record the instrument sound and apply high-quality digital filter technology to the recorded audio samples. The waveform of the sound created by playing the key of an acoustic piano differs depending on the playing strength from pianissimo to fortissimo. AWM dynamic stereo sampling can produce dynamic nuances by recording samples of various playing strengths. The greater the number of samples used, the higher the expression.

    128-note polyphony:
    Conventional digital pianos quickly run out of notes during fast, dense legato passages: sustained notes are cut off as the instrument "steals" notes to make room for new notes. On the Yamaha Arius YDP-161 digital piano, a maximum of 128 notes can be played all at once.

    Damper resonance:
    Damper resonance samples provide the rich and broadening tones produced in pedaling. Using these comprehensive gradations, the Yamaha Arius YDP-161 can realistically reproduce the complex sounds of a grand piano.

    Half-pedal control:
    Half-pedal control allows the sustain length to vary step-by-step depending on how far the pedal is pressed. The farther you press the pedal, the more the sound sustains.

    Song recorder:
    The built-in, 2-track performance memory allows you to record a backing track and then step into the spotlight and solo over it. Best of all, the electronic piano lets you change tempo or voices even after you've recorded your performance. There's also a built-in metronome to help you stay in perfect time.

    50 preset piano songs:
    The Yamaha Arius YDP-161 digital piano comes with a selection of 50 different piano songs provided for your listening pleasure. These recordings were chosen for their beauty as well as their functionality. Since many of the songs are classic piano pieces, anyone taking lessons can use them as a reference.

        Comments about Yamaha Arius YDP161 88-Key Digital Piano with Bench - Rosewood Finish:

        Wonderful piano, great sound and looks nice even though purchased used. Musician's Friend shipped promptly. Good price for used item. Only complaint is all but three of the screws are missing. I am having a hard time finding screws that fit. Any suggestions for where to purchase replacement screws? Are they available with Musician's Friend, or should I contact Yamaha? No offense to Home Depot but that guy was no help.
