Yamaha P120 Review

Is a Yamaha P120 right for you?

The P120 is a good choice, especially for someone looking for portability in a digital piano. Personally, it's very nice to know that I can carry a musical keyboard around, whether it's a Yamaha keyboard or whatever.

Highly Recommended: Go here for the BEST piano/keyboard course I’ve seen on the Internet.

The features that this digital piano offers make it definitely worth the price. The grand piano on the Yamaha P120 is very good, especially in the lower register. The touch sensitivity also comes very close to that of a real acoustic piano. If you've played a P80 before, you would probably agree that the P120 sounds better.

The two track sequencer is also an asset. You can record one sound, let's say a piano, add some strings and then some bass. Do whatever you want... that's just my preference.

The tuning feature is also nice. Sometimes, while listening to music on a cassette, you may find that the music is slightly out of tune. Just press a few buttons on your Yamaha P 120 and you're good to go.

The split feature which a Yamaha keyboard normally comes with has always been one of my favorites. I like to play left hand bass and play another tone with the right hand. This digital piano doesn't fail in that regard.

If you're looking for a digital piano with a good tremelo effect, the P120 would leave you disappointed. In my opinion, the tremelo that the P120 comes with is lacking. Just my opinion. By the way, is anything perfect in this world?

The variation feature probably makes up for that. With this feature, the sound capacity of the keyboard is doubled. You actually get two in one. Instead of two acoustic pianos, you get four; instead of one organ, you really get two; and so on.

If you like Yamaha digital pianos with built in speakers, then this is one of them. Personally, I'd rather plug it into a keyboard amplifier, or use external speakers.

When compared to other brands in a similar price range, the Yamaha P120 stands out. I recommended it. Click here to buy a newer Yamaha digital piano.
