Yamaha digital piano – key info
In this post, we provide a summary of some of the key information regarding Yamaha digital pianos. When it comes to digital pianos, Yamaha are certainly the most popular brand.
There are many reasons for Yamaha’s popularity. For one thing, they make a considerable effort to ensure that their digital pianos sound and feel “just like the real thing.” Indeed, it is said that they use a sound sample from their own concert grand piano to make the digital version sound as authentic as possible.
(1) What types of digital piano do Yamaha manufacture?
Yamaha produce several different types of digital piano. The best-known include:
(ii) Arius / YDP-series – these are entry-level console digital pianos. Examples include the YDP-141 and the YDP-161.
(iii) Clavinova CLP-series - these are more expensive pianos designed for home use. Examples include the CLP-430 and the CLP-440.
(2) What do users appreciate about Yamaha digital pianos?
Naturally, every user is different. Even those who love Yamaha will disagree as to which Yamaha digital piano is the “best.” However, it’s certainly possible to identify some of the reasons why Yamaha are so popular.
(i) High-quality sound - Yamaha say that they do everything they can to make their digital pianos sound just like the real thing (i.e. like an acoustic upright or grand piano). The vast majority of users would confirm that they are successful. The grand piano sound is highly satisfying for almost everyone who hears it.
(ii) Brand recognition / Brand reputation - Yamaha have earned a reputation as one of the top manufacturers of digital pianos. This is of course partly due to the other things we mention, such as attention to detail, quality of sound etc. Because of the “brand recognition/reputation” users tend to feel safe when ordering a Yamaha digital piano. This of course leads to more sales, and creates a “virtuous cycle.”
(iii) Price - Yamaha offer digital pianos in different price ranges. This means that there’s something available no matter what your budget. If you wish to go “all out” you might invest in a top of the range Clavinova. If you wish to spend a little less, you might opt instead for a piano in the Arius/YDP series. And if you have a very small budget, you might decide to purchase one of the portable grand pianos such as the Yamaha NP30.
In short, you’ll be able to find a Yamaha digital piano at almost any price point you choose.
