Yamaha’s P-series digital pianos are loved by piano players around the world who want the comfortablefeel of an acoustic piano in an instrument with a more manageable size and weight. Compared to their predecessors, the P-225 and P-145 feature a much shorter and thinner body design with a compact style. This model looks beautiful from any angle, and enhances any room. To achieve a smaller product chassis, Yamaha developed the new GHC (Graded Hammer Compact) keyboard (88 keys), which is built to uncompromising standards and offers the same weighted acoustic piano-like playing feel as the GHS (Graded Hammer Standard) keys used in previous models in the P Series.
In addition, the P-225 features the sounds of Yamaha’s flagship concert grand piano, the CFX, and this model uses Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) Lite technology to replicate the expressive moment-by-moment tonal changes that occur in a real grand piano.

Greaded Hammer Compact Keyboard
One of the main concerns for piano players when purchasing a digital piano is related to the feel of the keyboard when they play. Some of the things that players are specifically concerned with include whether they can feel the weight of the keys in their fingers as with a weighted acoustic piano keyboard; will the keyboard respond accurately when they play quicker passages; are there any inconsistencies between how hard they play the keys and the sound that results; does the keyboard offer a sufficient soft-to-loud dynamic range. The GHS keyboards used in the P-series thus far have received high praise from customers for the excellent balance and ease of playing that was mentioned above. The newly developed and more compact GHC keyboard on the new P-series reproduces the playing comfort of its predecessors in every way. Further, the keyboard unit is more compact than previous models, while offering an outstanding playing feel.
The Sound of the Piano
The P-225 gives you the sound of Yamaha’s flagship CFX concert grand, with shimmering highs and powerful lows. This model is equipped with Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) Lite, a digital technology that realistically reproduces the complex resonance produced by the strings of a grand piano, changing each time according to how the keys are pressed. You can enjoy the sound of a concert grand that’s played and loved by renowned pianists, along with its infinitely realistic resonance.
Balanced, Clear Sound with Soundboost
The position and angle of the speakers have been adjusted to replicate the sounds reflected from the
soundboard and lid of an acoustic grand piano as closely as possible. These adjustments let you enjoy playing with sharp and clear mid- to high-range tones and a prominent low-end for a well-balanced sound, even when the piano is set up against a wall. The P-225 features even a two-way speaker system that delivers expansive sound Thanks to the Sound Boost function you can switch to a more punchy and powerful sound.
The P-225 features built-in Bluetooth® audio, which lets you pair this instrument with your Bluetooth®-enabled smartphone or tablet to listen to your favourite music through the instrument’s speakers. You can also play along with the sound coming from the instrument’s speakers. An external adapter is not required.
