What Reidys say...
The Yamaha Arius YDP-142 is a brilliant instrument for players of all abilities. One of the main features of of the YDP-142 is the use of Yamaha's PureCF sampling Technology whereby samples are taken from Yamaha's own CFIIIS Concert Grand Piano and used to create a more realistic acoustic sound. The YDP-142 also makes use of multi-sampling, a tool that assists in creating a smoother transition between the different dynamics that can be played on the instrument.The weights of the keys are set out like those of a Grand Piano. On the lower notes there is a heavier touch abd on the higher notes a lighter one. This is a recreation of the feeling of a real acoustic piano as the hammers inside the casing of a grand affect the weight of the keys on an acoustic grand. With matte black keys and a compact case, this stylish instrument is the perfect addition to any pianists collection.
