Arguably the most popular and competitive digital piano mode in its price range, the Yamaha P-45 is second to none when it comes to playability, reliability and overall user-friendliness. The P-45 is the product of meticulously involved research and design by Yamaha, the makers of world renowned pianos in both the digital and acoustic world, with the goal of providing the natural feel and sonic resonance properties of the world's greatest panos at an affordable price to budding pianists. If you're after excellent grand piano sound and feel on a budget, then you really can't do better than Yamaha's P-45 digital piano. This remarkably portable instrument combines Yamaha's acclaimed Graded Hammer Standard keybed with their time-tested AWM stereo sound engine, delivering the natural feel and sound that Music Experience piano players have trusted for years. Between its compact frame, its USB/MIDI connectivity, and it's onboard performance features, your P-45 will serve you well at home, in the studio, and onstage.
From the first time your fingers tickle the ivories on the P-45, you'll know why Yamaha digital pianos are known far and wide for having some of the best-feeling keys on the market. That's because the P-45 sport's 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 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 P-45 the perfect transition from an acoustic instrument to the benefits of a digital one. Plus, it's lightweight enough to take onstage with you, when you're ready to perform!

The P-45 features ten stunningly realistic instruments, including electric piano, organs, harpsichord, vibraphone, and more. The P-45 is half-pedal capable with the optional FC3 pedal. A sustain footswitch and a music rest are included.
