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.
End “Guitar Envy”
