the P-45 digital piano sports Yamaha’s Graded Hammer Standard keybed. This fully weighted keybed provides you with light response in the upper register and progressively heavier action the lower you play just like the keys of an acoustic piano. Yamaha’s AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) sampling employs digital technology to record an instrument’s sound and then applies a high-quality digital filter to the recorded samples. Using pairs of waveforms captured by two microphones for left and right, AWM Stereo Sampling creates a deeper, richer and more spacious soundstage. You’ll also appreciate the Yamaha P-45’s built-in 12W speaker system. Just turn it on and you can start performing — there’s no need to connect any other gear. That makes the Yamaha P-45 the perfect transition from an acoustic instrument to the benefits of a digital one. Just like Yamaha’s other P series digital pianos, the P-45 digital piano sports a compact, lightweight, and contemporary design, giving you easy storage and effortless portability. And the Yamaha P-45 is easy to use too.
