The highly popular Yamaha P-Series is a bestseller in the field of compact
and stylish digital pianos. The latest addition to this series is the P-255,
which offers a more authentic piano sound and feel than ever before,
thanks to the new Pure CF Sound Engine. And with its highly portable
design, this digital piano can be played in almost any environment.
Despite its size, the P-255 does not compromise when it comes to sound,
features and pure performance capability. With its responsive keyboard
with Synthetic Ivory Keytops, high quality piano voicing and
powerful sound, this is the very best P-series digital piano.
The P-255 is equipped with helpful features for live performance including
EQ controller, Sound Boost and Panel Lock. You can also save your
performance as an audio file directly onto a USB memory device by using
the Audio Recorder and USB-to-device connection.
For everyone from students to professional pianists, the P-255 gives you a
superb playing experience.
The instrument is available in a choice of black or white finishes.

GH keyboard with synthetic ivory keytops enables you to
play in comfort for hours on end
With its GH keyboard, the lower keys are heavier to the touch and
the higher ones are lighter, giving the P-255 the feel of a grand piano.
What’s more, the white keys feature synthetic ivory keytops which
have excellent moisture absorption properties; this ensures that your
fingers won't slip even when playing for extended periods of time.

Maximum polyphony of 256 notes –unsurpassed in the world
of digital pianos.
Thanks to 256-note polyphony, the quality of the P-255 is clearly apparent,
particularly when sustaining notes using the damper pedal. And
there’s no need to worry about notes cutting off when you play demanding
passages of music.

Impressive piano voices reproduce the sensation of playing
a concert grand piano
As with the acclaimed Pure CF Sound Engine of Clavinova, the tone
generator features sounds which have been sampled from a Yamaha
concert grand piano. This ensures that the P-255 can easily replicate the
subtle nuances and detailed sonic expression of the original instrument,
giving you the sensation of playing a concert grand.

While the P-255 performs in the same way as an acoustic
piano, it also lets you express your creativity in many other ways.
This makes it the perfect choice for those who wish to enjoy awide
range of music or explore new possibilities.

To complement the choice of 24 voices, 10 rhythm tracks are also
available, ensuring that you’ll never be short of musical inspiration!

The P-255 is equipped with three EQ sliders for the low, mid,
and high frequency bands.
Using these EQ sliders, you can tailor the sound to your personal taste
or the performance environment. In addition, you can enhance the
overall sound and presence of the instrument by using the Sound Boost
function. By pressing one button, Sound Boost instantly provides a
louder sound with greater presence. Rather than simply making the
sound more powerful, this function gives you a clear-sounding performance
that retains its dynamics without becoming any less expressive.

The P-255 can store your performances on a USB flash drive
as audio songs.

With the innovative P-255 Controller App for your iPhone
or iPad, you can adjust a wide range of the digital piano’s
functions in a highly intuitive manner.
This visual approach to configuring the instrument makes it easier to
control functions than ever before. You can also use the app to store
your favorite settings and recall them instantly whenever
needed. You can even save and manage your recordings. These functions,
many of which are unique to a digital piano, are certain to make
your whole playing experience far more enjoyable and rewarding.
