When I first got this, I was just like, oh boy, here we go again, another HUGE bill on visa. and when I used, BAM I was speechless. If you want to buy this, GET IT> I luv the sound that it plays, and with 14 musical instruments to choose from, youll have a blast. When you play somthing really bad, you will sound like a pro with this one device!
Ok I just got this Digi Piano 2 days ago and all I can say is that its as real as it gets. I didn't know it was the top 5 selling piano when I bought it. I just bought it cause it sounded the best out of all the digi pianos in the room. This the closest thing to the real deal. Bench is nice and stable. The keys feel really nice after a few hours of breaking them in. The speakers sound clear and real and deep when you hit the lower keys. Has all the sounds you need and you can even use 2 sounds at the same time. Has reverb, and effects like tremolo, delay, phase. Pedals feel real, piano sits on my carpet extra sturdy. Took about 10 mins to set up. Easy 5 piece assembly. Has outs and ins, midi, headphones, speaker on or off switch. If you're picky about real piano sounds then get this baby, she sounds like the real thing no doubt. Real enough to record some tracks in my studio. This thing is my new love. Thank you Yamaha for making a beautiful product.
This digital piano is far above most of its similarly priced peers. The sound quality is incredible. The graded hammer action keys play very expressively. The 2 track recorder is very easy to use. I like everything about this piano.
This keyboard is really enjoyable. If you are looking for a great sound for a grand piano, than this is the right one for you. I had this thing for over 2 years. And it works like nothing else. If you are looking for a keyboard this is the one for you.
The sound, the touch, the quality of this piano is tremendous for the price. I sold a 400-pound 80-year-old upright because I didn't want to send it when I moved. I bought this electronic piano thinking that it would sound good and never need tuning, and it could easily be moved by 2 people.It simply sounds wonderful, like a well-tuned regular piano. The samples are marvelous, and I found I can combine two sounds to create other sounds. For example, combining one of the piano sounds with one of the harpsichord sounds makes a great honkey-tonk sound. I love the second electric piano sound and the jazz organ, which sounds like a hot B-3. And it looks great too. I was expecting contact-paper covered cardboard and particle board, but it's looks much better than that. The touch is exactly like a conventional piano.My only comment is that it takes both hands to transpose, making it difficult in the middle of a piece. It would be cool if they could make it a pedal function.All in all, for the price they're asking (including the bench!) you can't beat it. If I had the money I'd buy a second one for our downstairs.
I still can't belive the cost on this Piano. Its tone is really awesome and the feel is just like a nine foot concert Grand.The only complant I have is I wish the back panel hide the cables instead of leaving a 1 and one half inch gap.
Great action, great sound, great feel - closest thing to an acoustic and never have to have it tuned - all the pedals - easy to assemble. Can't wait to interface it with the computer. NO regrets!
This instrument sounds great! While NOTHING can take the place of a 9' concert grand, this comes as close as you possibly can, and sounds good doing it! Not a lot of features, but who needs them if you just want to play the piano? The graded hammer action simulates an acoustic. You will NOT be disappointed when you buy this instrument.My wife heard it she said, "are you sure that doesn't have strings in there?!" Great quality with exceptional sound performance.Features: Doesn't have a lotQuality: The sound is worth every ninth star. The cabinetry is beautiful as wellValue: MUCH cheaper than purchasing an acoustic and sounds like it too......without tuning!
This was a gift from my husband!I really didn't know what to expect I wanted the sound and quality of a regular piano.We were both very impressed with the beauty and the sound is so natural. All the enjoyment of owning a piano but without all the upkeep. Not to mention you can plug in the headphones and no knows you are playing. So if you live in a small place you can enjoy yourself without disturbing others. Thanks to this site I will definetly recommend you to others.
This is my 5th piano and my best so far. I've been playing piano for 20 years and I currently live in a cluttered apartment while going through college and this digital piano fits easy and I can put my headphones on and no one can hear me rock out playing Beethoven 24/7. I've started to write my own music and a symphony for a girl whose heart I wish to win. I plan to write more. I can even play strings and organ for my music and I can play many others for fun. The best part is that no one can hear me play if I choose. My digital piano has great sound and realistic response. This is as close as you can ever get to a real piano.
I purchased this piano last week because of the reviews on this site. I just wanted to add my two cents. This piano is everything we expected. We even listen to it play while we eat dinner. It plays 50 wonderful classical songs. As far as action goes, it plays better than my parent's piano. Another thing I thought was cool is that you can change the type of scale the piano is tuned to (e.g. MeanTone, WerchMeister) to better simulate 16th Century harpsicord music. You will not be disappointed with this piano. I would not have even been able to get an acoustic upright into the only room I had room to put a piano. Two people can move this easily. I am also going to buy some organ music because the church organ sound that comes out of this is amazing. Have fun. You will not regret this purchase. My whole family loves it and it has inspired everyone to learn the piano.
This is the best mediumly priced electric piano I have ever heard! The sound obviously isn't up to the standard of an acoustic grand piano, but it delivers. It is perfect for professionals and novices. The features are great. The pedals are also useful, and it also looks great too! The only complaint I have is that its too heavy! My students enjoy being taught on this piano.
I bought this for my daughter, and have not been disappointed. After two years, it still sounds and looks as good as the day I got it. GREAT. I forsee no problems and could not be happier with the money spent. If you wish to spend wisely and have a insturment that not only looks good but delivers, this is your choice. Period.
I bought my piano in 2003. It has been nothing but a pleasure to play. Action is very good. I wish it had better organ sounds, something more like a b3.I've played pianos that cost much more and don't think this one can be topped without spending a lot more money. If you're looking for a great digital piano, this one is worth looking at.
I am going to purchase that piano, and just from playing it twice, it is an excellent work of art. From the cabinet, to the realistic "huff" of the pipe organs, everything has been counted for. This is a great investment, and I urge everyone to take a look at this....You won't be disappointed!
Nice action, beautiful sound, true quality. If you're shopping for a piano, digital or otherwise, give this one a closer look. You will not be disappointed!
We settled on the Yamaha YDP223 and are very pleased.The sound is very good. Its not literally the same as an acoustic piano, but its certainly very close. And any difference is more than made up for by the variety of great sounds the Yamaha can make. The other features, such as the built in metronome and the recorder, are very nice.We hae two daughters who are taking lessons, and their interest has certainly been reinvigorated by this instrument. It looks great, and has a solid, quality feel to it. We are totally pleased.
Got the YDP223 for my family as a Christmas present, and we're very happy with it. Though it doesn't have as many bells and whistles as some of its pricier cousins (like the pf500), it's got everything that a student might need, including the ability to record on two channels, so you can practice a new piece one hand at a time. It's also got full MIDI support, and aux inputs, so if you later decide that you want more voices, you can add a separate tone module. I've got an Alesis QS6.1 that I'll probably hook up so I can use more voices.The cabinet is very attractive and traditional, in rosewood finish. Fits in well with our decor. Has all three pedals, and solid construction. Assembly is possible (barely) with one person, but they recommend two, and that's probably a good idea, as the keyboard unit is heavy. The included bench is convenient, and fairly comfortable, but does not offer storage, and is not adjustable, so if those things are important to you, you may want to get another bench.
I have had this instrument for eight months. The Grand Piano 1 patch sounds amazingly realistic, almost an idealized grand sound, and the piano response is very realistic on the "hard" setting. The one complaint I have are the slippery-surfaced, cheap-feeling plastic keytops. I can't help but feel like I'm going to break it when I play a fortissimo passage, and my fingers often overslide on fast passages.
