Yamaha P65 Review

Yamaha P65 review.

First of all, if you're a professional keyboard player looking for a top of the line digital piano, this keyboard is not for you. It's a really basic digital piano for beginners or hobbyists. In fact if you're an entry level customer it may probably be the best choice for you. You can start with the P65 digital piano and when you have developed as a keyboard player move on to a more expensive instrument.

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

If you're looking for some piano experience without having to bear the huge costs associated, the P 65 has a lot to offer. It comes with 88 weighted piano-sized keys. If the piano is your thing, forget about lightly weighted keyboards. With weighted keys you can develop strength in your fingers in case you want to move on to an acoustic piano later on. It's always good to think long term.

One of my disappointments with the Yamaha P65 digital piano is the polyphony. With only 32 notes of polyphony, you can well imagine that notes will begin to cut out during a heated performance. But I guess this would only affect more accomplished players. If you're just starting out 32 notes of polyphony can suffice.

This Yamaha digital piano comes with several great features including dual voice mode, reverb, chorus, built-in speakers, 2 headphone jacks, midi in and out, and an FC-5 foot pedal is included. It comes with stereo sampled instrument voices such as grand piano, electric piano, pipe organ and strings. One of my favorite features from the time I started playing has always been dual voice. This allows you to combine two different instruments together such as piano and strings.

One of the good things about this instrument is the fact that it is so portable. You don't have to worry when it's necessary to carry it along with you. This digital piano can be transported easily.

You will also be delighted by the weighted hammer action of the Yamaha P65. This emulates the feel and expression of a real acoustic piano where the keys are heavier in the bass and lighter in the higher registers.

It comes with internal stereo speakers so there's no need to worry about buying an amplifier if you don't have one as yet. And you can connect it to other Yamaha keyboards, sound modules or a computer, thanks to its MIDI capabilities. Click here to shop for a new Yamaha digital piano.
