Details

Contemporary portable digital piano for all musicians, suitable for both serious practice and live performance

The best-selling Yamaha P-Series set the industry standard for what a compact, stylish digital piano should be. As the latest addition to this series, the P-255 offers a more authentic piano sound and feel than ever before. Thanks to its highly portable design, this digital piano can be played in any place or setting you desire. With Yamaha’s knowledge of digital audio and over 125 years of experience building fine acoustic pianos, you can rest assured that the P-255 will meet and exceed your expectations of a portable digital piano. Optional extras such as the matching L-255 furniture stand and the LP-255 piano-style 3-pedal unit make the P-255 a pleasure to look at and play, even at home.

3 main points of P-255

1) Digital piano quality suitable for even the most experienced pianists
2) Sound can be customized for different playing environments
3) The P-255 Controller App for iOS

The Best Portable Digital Piano
The Yamaha P-255 contemporary digital piano is for all musicians looking for an instrument suitable for both serious practice and live performance. Thanks to its portable design and built-in speaker system, the P-255 can be played in any place or setting you desire, with or without external amplification. And with the first-of-its-kind Controller App for iOS, you can customize your piano sound or quickly adjust your favorite settings with touch-screen ease-of-use.

Digital piano quality suitable for even the most experienced pianist
Despite its slim, portable design, the P-255 offers an impressive range of performance capabilities. In terms of keyboard, piano Voices and sound reinforcement, this is the very best digital piano in the P-Series. Whether you’re already an expert or new to the piano, you’ll love playing this instrument.

Impressive Piano Voices Reproduce the Sensation of Playing a Concert Grand Piano
The P-255 uses the Pure CF Sound Engine to produce its piano Voices. As the only digital piano in our P-Series to feature the following three functions, the P-255 can also recreate the characteristic acoustics of the grand piano sound in a more realistic fashion.

Key-off Samples - This feature reproduces the slight change in sound at the instant you remove your fingers from the keys. What’s more, different key-off sounds are produced for staccato and legato playing.

Sustain Sampling - The resonance of the soundboard and strings heard when the damper pedal is used has been sampled in order to recreate this acoustic effect. The P-255 responds to how deep you depress the pedal.

String Resonance - When the hammer of a grand piano strikes its string, the other strings will also resonate. The P-255 can reproduce this effect using its String Resonance feature.

Synthetic Ivory Keytops - Built to be Played
With a heavier touch in the low keys and a lighter touch in the high keys, the Graded Hammer (GH) action makes the P-255 feel and respond more like a real grand piano. Additionally, the white keys feature synthetic ivory keytops with excellent moisture absorption properties. This means that your fingers won't slip even when playing for extended periods of time.

Meticulous Acoustic Design
The P-255’s circular speakers vibrate in a highly natural manner to produce a well-balanced tone. Thanks to this design, lower notes in particular have a much richer sound than on pianos with oval speakers. The P-255 also features built-in tweeters aimed directly at the performer, so that higher notes sound brighter. Also, the pair of 15W amps built into each P-255 can deliver a very powerful sound.

Sound can be customized for different playing environments
The P-255 is the only instrument from our P-Series that offers functions to conveniently customize the Voice, volume and tone settings based on the environment in which you’re playing.

Sound Boost Button Instantly Provides More Volume With Greater Presence
At the touch of a button, you can easily make the sound of the P-255 louder and enhance its presence. Does the audience have difficulty hearing your piano playing over the mix of a band or small combo? No problem. Sound Boost allows for a clear-sounding performance that will cut through any mix. This feature affects both the internal speakers and external amplification.

Use EQ Sliders to Match the Sound to Personal Taste of the Performance Environment
The P-255 is equipped with EQ sliders—one each for the low, mid and high frequency ranges. By simply moving these sliders, you can easily adjust the digital piano‘s sound to your liking or to better suit the current song or acoustic environment. You can produce bright and shimmering tones that are clear and highly present or powerful sounds that pack a punch.

Additional Features Make Live Performances More Fun

Rhythm Tracks - The P-255 comes complete with ten different rhythm patterns that are perfectly suited to pop, jazz, bossa nova and many other types of music regularly performed on the piano. This feature is perfect for singers who accompany themselves and for other live performers. Replace old metronomes with your personal, versatile drummer complete with intros and endings.

More than just a piano - In addition to piano Voices, you can enjoy playing organs, a string section, basses and a wide variety of other instrument sounds on the P-255. This digital piano also lets you change Voices to suit individual songs and to layer different sounding Voices, allowing you to explore many other interesting sounds besides the piano.

Speaker Cut-Off - When the P-255 is connected to external speakers, its built-in speakers can be conveniently muted.

Panel Lock button - The control panel can be temporarily locked to prevent settings being changed by accidentally pressing buttons while playing. This helps ensure nothing goes wrong during those important performances.

Adjustable response - The P-255 keyboard can also be set to four different sensitivity levels depending if you have a heavier or lighter playing style.

The P-255 Controller App for iOS
The free P-255 Controller App for iPhone or iPad can be downloaded from the App Store. With it, you can control a wide range of the digital piano’s functions with an easy-to-use, touch-screen interface. This visual approach to configuring the P-255 makes it easy to try out functions that you may not have considered using before. Graphically choose which Voices to layer, adjust the split point, manage songs you record to a USB device and more, all with the touch of a finger. You can also use the app to store your favorite settings and recall them instantly whenever needed. Explore the settings and sounds of the P-255 even before yours arrives at home.
*An Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter/iPad Camera Connection Kit or a dedicated Yamaha cable such as the i-MX1/i-UX1 is required for connection.

Many other practical, useful features for today's pianist

Built-in Piano Recording Studio
The P-255 can store your performances directly on a USB flash drive as audio songs.  These songs are stored in .wav format, so you can conveniently play them back on a computer, transfer them to a portable media device or upload them to share with friends online.

Maximum Polyphony of 256 Notes - Unsurpassed in the World of Digital Pianos
The P-255 is the first P-Series model to offer top-class maximum polyphony of 256 notes. Thanks to this improvement, you’ll find that notes sound more beautiful while sustaining. There’s no need to worry any more about sounds cutting out when you play busy passages with lots of notes and intricate pedal work.
