Have you ever been jealous of guitar players who tote their axes so easily to parties? How many times have you said to yourself, “Self, if only I could bring my piano along?” Hey! Stop talking to yourself. It’s unattractive at parties. Now, thanks to the Yamaha P105 digital piano, you can bring your piano with you and make like Rachmaninoff or Tori Amos.
Weighing in at less than 26 pounds, the P105 can be tucked under your arm, or nestled into a nifty, lightweight keyboard case. With its built-in 14-watt stereo system, two-way loudspeakers, and the Intelligent Acoustic Control system, great sound is right at your fingertips without the need for a separate PA system.
Portability is just the tip of the iceberg. The P105 has 88 touch-sensitive keys that feel almost like an acoustic piano. Yamaha calls this the Graded Hammer (GH) touch sensitivity system, and it means lower notes can be pressed hard, while higher notes are more sensitive and responsive. No other instrument in this class offers such fine-tuned touch sensitivity. In fact, there are instruments far more expensive that don’t even come close.
“But how’s the sound?” you ask yourself. There you go, talking to yourself again! The P105 sounds amazing. It comes loaded with Yamaha’s PureCF sound system, giving you the richness and clarity of Yamaha’s CFIIS concert grand piano, a $120,000 instrument that you can’t tuck under your arm and take with you.
There’s even more! At the touch of a button, the P105 plays along with you in 10 different styles, including arpeggio, march, rag, boogie, swing, blues, slow rock, jazz ballad, waltz and jazz waltz. With 10 different drum machine patterns, it’s like bringing your own band to a party or event. How about splitting the keyboard? Play walking bass with your left hand and piano with your right. Or use two sounds at the same time, like piano with strings, for a really rich sound.
There’s even a USB port to hook your P105 directly to your computer or iPad. Yamaha now offers the NoteStar digital sheet music application for iPad, featuring hands-free, smooth-flowing, easy-to-read digital sheet music accompanied by realistic audio backing tracks and vocals.
The Yamaha P105 might just be the most versatile entry-level digital piano on the market. With 14 different “voices” and 128-note polyphony, this instrument is a powerhouse. The back panel sports audio outs, allowing you to hook it up to a mixer, PA system, or high-end sound system for those times you find yourself needing more juice.
So get a move on while parties are in full swing. Order your P105 today and your social calendar might fill up faster than you ever dreamed.
For those seeking a well made grand piano at an affordable price, we have the answer. The Yamaha designed and built Cable Nelson CN151.
Now, almost anyone can own a quality piano designed and built by Yamaha. The Cable-Nelson pianos are perfectly suited for home piano players who desire Yamaha quality at a more affordable price. They live up to the company’s worldwide reputation for outstanding service, exceptional value and reliable customer support.
This expressive instrument is designed by Yamaha master craftsmen, prepared by Yamaha engineers and built by Yamaha specialists—using world-renowned manufacturing processes. The piano includes top quality parts, premium woods, extruded aluminum alloy action rails, V-Pro plates and copper wound bass strings – all features found in Yamaha brand pianos.
Unlike most manufacturers, Yamaha takes a total approach to piano-making: it retains complete control over virtually every component at every stage of production—even to the point of building the manufacturing equipment. Rather than assembling pianos from parts produced by outside companies or contracting with third parties to build its pianos, Yamaha designs, tests, evaluates and manufactures all major components by itself.

With well-established credentials in fields such as metallurgy, chemistry and electronics—as well as more obvious areas like acoustics and woodworking—Yamaha leverages extensive internal resources to raise the standards of piano-making. The results of this inter-disciplinary approach are a steady stream of innovations and better musical instruments.

July, 2013 – Yamaha has just announced the addition of the DGX-650 to its line of DGX Portable Grand Digital Pianos. There are two models, DGX-650B in Classic Piano Black, and DGX-650WH in Spotlight White.
The Yamaha DGX-650 gives you the playability of a real acoustic piano with a comprehensive suite of auto-accompaniment and performance functions that let you create your musical inspirations with ease.
PureCF sampling offers the sound of a Yamaha CFIIIS full concert grand piano, meticulously tuned and sampled under carefully controlled conditions, and reproduces the authentic tone and resonance of this superb instrument with amazing fidelity.
Yamaha’s Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) keyboard action was developed to capture the essence of an acoustic piano keyboard, and offers acoustic piano expression, allowing you to play with nuanced tone and subtle dynamics. It even duplicates the graded touch of an acoustic piano with a firm feel in the bass register that transitions to a lighter, delicate feel for the keys in the treble.
Authentic guitars, lush strings, punchy brass… Yamaha’s highly acclaimed Live!, Cool! and Sweet! Voices feature a unique blend of long, stereo and multi-layered samples that capture the essence of each instrument, right down to genuine resonance, expression and vibrato.
Check both models out here: Yamaha DGX650.
This is the time of year when music manufacturers begin making announcements of new products that are “coming soon”. The new Yamaha YDP142 Arius digital piano is one such product.
The YDP142 is replacing the popular YDP141, with new features and finishes. New features include: PureCF Sound Engine, Acoustic Optimizer and 128 note polyphony (the YDP141 had 64 note polyphony). The new finishes include the traditional Rosewood finish YDP142R, and a new Black Walnut finish, YDP142B. Yamaha decided to add a black finish to this series, because black is the most popular color for acoustic pianos.
Yamaha has been producing well-made and affordable electronic pianos since the 1970’s, when they introduced the CP30 and CP70B electric grand. And now, they’re adding the YDP142 to the fold. With its new features and finishes, it’s sure to be a winner!

The new Yamaha P-105, a new portable digital piano featuring Yamaha piano touch and tone, was introduced at Summer NAMM 2012. The P-105 is for anyone looking for an affordable and great sounding 88-key weighted action keyboard.
The Yamaha P-105 has an 88-note, Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) weighted action keyboard that feels heavier in the low end and lighter in the top, just like the keys of an acoustic piano. It also features the PureCF sound engine that recreates the sound of Yamaha’s famous CFIIIS concert grand piano.
The versatile USB TO HOST port and line-level AUX outputs allow a variety of connectivity options with everything from an amplifier to an iPad. Additionally, with the optional Apple Camera Connection Kit, the world of Yamaha Apps like Piano Diary and NoteStar opens up all sorts of possibilities. With its increased 128-note polyphony, the P-105 ensures the suppression of dropped notes even with simultaneous Dual & Split modes and a drum pattern playing. In the EQ department, Intelligent Acoustic Control provides full, balanced sound that adapts to each user’s volume setting for the best possible tone at any level.
The P-105 also allows for side-by-side piano practice for two people using the new Duo mode, a distinctive benefit that makes it ideal for schools teaching group lessons as it accommodates two students per piano, each with their own middle C.
Additional features include ten pianist styles that essentially give the user a built-in duet partner that plays along in one of ten different playing varieties like boogie woogie, stride piano, or ballad Arpeggios. Furthermore, the built-in Rhythms offer ten versatile patterns as an alternative to the traditional metronome and this virtual drummer is always on time.

Yamaha will introduce at least two new keyboard products at this year’s music dealer trade show ( NAMM), the YDP-C71PE Arius Digital Piano and the EZ-220 portable keyboard.
The Yamaha YPD-C71PE features a high gloss polished ebony finish – like Yamaha Grand Pianos – and is very suitable for churches, schools, and of course, home. It has the GH graded hammer action, AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling, and the half-damper effect, which provides different levels of sustain for acoustic piano realism.
Other features include a two track song recorder, dual headphone jacks, and the ability to mute either hand of the 50 preset piano songs, so you can practice each hand independently. For more information on the YDPC71PE or the EZ200, visit www.AndysMusic.com, or call Andy’s Music at 251-633-7495.
Yamaha just announced the YDP-135R, the latest addition to its Arius digital piano line. It is similar in features to the YDP141, sans bench and a few other features, and will sell for $999; at this price, it is one of the most affordable Yamaha Arius pianos available.
The Yamaha YDP135R is ideal for beginning students and experienced players alike, and provides true piano sound and feel. The Graded Hammer Standard keyboard makes it enjoyable to play, both in practice or performance, and the AWM Stereo Sampling technology delivers authentic voices and clarity. The Dual voice mode lets you play two different instrument sounds at the same time, piano and strings are a popular combo, and the 1-track song recorder captures your original musical ideas and performances.
