Yamaha P140 Series Digital Pianos

Once in a while it's nice to see an actual musical instrument in a living room rather than a messy, wired together synth workstation. The Yamaha P Series has compact, contemporary-looking, piano-focused instruments called the P140 and P140S (MSRP $1,499 each).

The P140 Series features 88 weighted piano-sized keys, 64 notes of polyphony and 14 of Yamaha's best keyboard voices, each with three tonal variations. With the ultra-realistic Yamaha Stereo Grand Piano voice, three separate layers of stereo samples provide accurate reproduction of the tone; harmonics and subtle details, including key-off and stereo sustain samples. And with the Graded Hammer (GH) keyboard, the action is as close to the real thing that you can get.

There is a two-track adjustable tempo song recorder, you can record your original music, play along for practice, or even overdub a second part. Flash-ROM recording memory means songs don't disappear upon shutdown. Play different voices for left and right-hand parts in Split mode, or layer piano and string voices in Dual mode. Onboard effects include multiple reverbs, chorus, phaser, tremolo and an adjustable rotary speaker. You can play privately with headphones and show a friend using the second front-mounted jack or go public with the integrated speaker system.

Yamaha's PC Music Studio Kit (sold separately) will connect the instrument directly to any Windows compatible computer with a USB port for printing music, recording performances, and even virtual piano lessons.

Available in Black with Dark Oak (P140) or Silver with Light Maple (P140S) finishes, both P140s come with a music rest, AC adapter and model FC3 continuous sustain pedal. There is an optional $150 matching-finish stand also available. Check www.yamaha.com for more.
