Arius YDP Personal Digital Piano Free Stool, Headphones, Book (CD+DVD) & Delivery
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.
Realise your piano potential with a Yamaha ARIUS YDP142 digital piano.
The Arius YDP-142 digital piano provides authentic piano touch and tone suitable for any aspiring pianist. The Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) action builds proper fingering technique for an easy transition to playing on acoustic pianos. PureCF Sound Engine delivers expressive recordings of Yamaha's concert grand piano.
For every piano player, the touch feeling like acoustic piano is essential. Yamaha's Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) Keyboard realizes the heavier touch on lower notes, and ligther response on higher notes. The YDP-142 can be a reliable partner for you with this GHS keyboard having receivied high reputation for long time.
To make the YDP-142 be your favorite, you can select touch sensitivity from 3 types - hard, medium, or soft - depending on your finger strength or playing style. You can play with your favorite keyboard setting which matches to you
Pure CF Sound Engine starts with a meticulous recording of Yamaha's acclaimed concert grand piano. This recording contains a number of dynamic levels from pianissimo to fortissimo so you can experience the delicate touch of a soft passage or the pure power of two-handed chords. And the 128 note polyphony ensures that YDP-142 can handle demanding repertoire, even in complex passages, without losing notes.
The built-in, 2-track song recorder is a great way to capture a performance and play it back to hear your progress. You can also record the right and left hands separately for hands-separate practicing at any tempo you're comfortable with. So now you can practice one hand while song recorder plays the other.
Damper Resonance digitally reproduces the sympathetic interaction between strings on acoustic pianos. When the damper pedal is used in a performance, the harmonics of other strings wash over the notes you play until the pedal is released.
For silent practice, a headphone connection socket is provided. Thanks to the dual headphone jacks, up to two people can enjoy playing the piano together in total privacy. Practice as much as you need before unplugging the headphones to let others hear your progress.
