    Yamaha Arius YDP-161 88-Key Graded Hammer Piano with Bench Product Description

    Perfect for beginning students and experienced players alike, the ARIUS / YDP series provides true piano sound and feel. The Yamaha YDP161 has a Graded Hammer keyboard that makes it a true joy to play, both in practice and in performance. The 3-level AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling Voices deliver remarkably authentic sound. Moreover, the damper pedal includes a half-damper effect, giving you nuanced expressive control over the sustained sound. Dual Voice capability lets you play two different instrument sounds at the same time, while a 2-track song recorder allows you to capture your original musical ideas and performances.

    Graded Hammer (GH)
    Just as on a traditional acoustic piano, lower notes on a GH keyboard have a heavier touch, while the higher ones are more responsive to lighter playing. GH features an extra key sensor capable of reproducing fast repetitive playing of a single note with perfect articulation.

    Variable Touch Sensitivity
    Select the hard, medium or soft setting to match your playing style or finger strength. Turn off sensitivity for a fixed response setting, ideal when playing the organ.

    Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) Dynamic Stereo Sampling
    The AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) is a sampling system which creates the realism of an acoustic instrument by using digital technology to record the instrument sound and applying high-quality digital filter technology to the recorded audio samples. The waveform of the sound created by playing the key of an acoustic piano differs depending on the playing strength from pianissimo to fortissimo. The AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling can produce such dynamic nuances by recording samples of various playing strengths. The greater the number of samples used, the higher the expression.

    128-note Polyphony
    Conventional digital pianos quickly run out of notes during fast, dense legato passages: sustained notes are cut off as the instrument "steals" notes to make room for new notes. A maximum of up to 128 notes can be played at once.

    Damper Resonance
    Damper Resonance samples provide the rich and broadening tones produced in pedaling. Using these comprehensive gradations, YDP-161 model can realistically reproduce the complex sounds of a grand piano.

    Half-Pedal Control
    It allows the sustain length to vary "step-by-step" depending on how far the pedal is pressed. The farther you press the pedal, the more the sound sustains.

    Song Recorder
    The built-in, 2-track performance memory allows you to record a backing track, and then step into the spotlight and solo over it. Best of all, you can change tempo or Voices even after you've recorded your performance. There's also a built-in metronome to help you stay in perfect time.

    50 Preset Piano Songs
    A selection of 50 different piano songs is provided for your listening pleasure. These recordings were chosen for their beauty as well as their functionality. Since many of the songs are classic piano pieces, anyone taking lessons can listen to them for reference.

    Power Supply: AC Adaptor (Included)

    Note: Some assembly required.
