The Yamaha P250
When it comes to a professional digital piano, the P250 ranks at the top. The price alone indicates its superiority to the other Yamaha digital pianos. Does this mean that you should buy it instead of the others? Certainly not. As always, my advice is to buy it only if it meets your needs.
Remember we said that when you're buying a digital piano or even a Yamaha keyboard, you should decide whether you will need all the features that you're gonna pay for. If not, buy the cheaper one.
The Graded Hammer weighted action on the Yamaha P250 is superb. The keys are heavier in the lower registers and lighter in the higher registers; just like a grand piano. The built in speakers don't disappoint. The sound of the P250 is also quite phenomenal. It's probably the closest you can get to the sound of a real acoustic piano, for that price. It's for people like me who can't afford to pay over $35,000 for a grand piano.
While most of the Yamaha digital pianos we've mentioned on this site have 32 or 64 notes of polyphony, the P250 has 128. With 128 notes of polyphony, I can't imagine notes cutting off, while you're playing. This is one feature I've always liked in a musical keyboard. One thing I dreaded in the small Casio keyboards I played as a child was the fact that notes would cut off.
The Yamaha P 250 comes with a 16 track song recorder. This feature puts it way ahead of the other Yamaha digital pianos. For example, the P120 only has 2 tracks.
One of the few things I dislike about the P250 is its weight. I've always liked portability. Anyway, I guess you can't have your cake and eat it.
This digital piano has a lot of other features which you may like. As always, I've only mentioned a few of the things I like, and what comes to mind as I'm writing this. I like the Yamaha P 250 and wish I had one.
