The authentic piano sounds and keys feel make it easy to play this simple keyboard any way you like. Yamaha's GHS (Graded Hammer Standard) weighted action has heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end, just like the hammers inside an acoustic piano. Great for the aspiring pianist, practicing on the GHS action builds the proper finger technique for when the time comes to perform on an acoustic piano.
The matte finish of the black keys are less slippery when playing for extended periods of time. AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) sampling uses digital technology to record the sound of an acoustic piano. The P-45 uses AWM to play one sample per key at varying levels of volume and timbre.
The P-45 doesn't requires a lot space with it's slim and stylish form having a depth of less than 12 inches. At only 25 lbs. with a built-in sound system, it can be easily moved anywhere in your home or even used for performance outside. Various P-45 settings can be changed with a single button - hold down the "GRAND PIANO/FUNCTION" button and press the keyboard to change Voices, play demo sources, configure the metronome and more.
