The Arius YDP-143 Digital Piano features Yamaha's Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) keyboard action helps build proper finger technique and strength for an easy transition to playing on acoustic pianos. Improved Pure CF Engine delivers expressive, high resolution recordings of the Yamaha CFIIIS concert grand piano. Damper Resonance digitally recreates acoustic piano depth of tone when pedaling, while newly improved reverbs set the stage for you to replicate the feeling of playing in a variety of different environments.
With 192-note polyphony, many of the most complex piano compositions can be played without any dropped notes, and the sustained notes ring through faithfully. The Arius YDP-143 is available in either rosewood or black walnut finishes, and the furniture-style cabinet exceeds all expectations of the typical electric piano, lending a classic piano look to any home.
Pedaling provides an added level of realism
Half-damper pedal control creates more detailed nuance and subtlety when playing, similar to pedaling on a grand piano. This feature allows for continuously increasing lengths of sustained notes, from slight to full, as the sustain pedal is depressed. Stereo Sustain samples provide mellow reverberations when the player depresses the damper pedal.
Similarly, Damper Resonance provides broad and deep resonance when the pedal is used. The result is more realistic sound, similar to that of an acoustic piano. Subtle changes occur when the player begins to press the pedal while striking a key.
A piano with its own classic repertoire
The Yamaha digital piano is pre-loaded with a variety of classic piano songs for your listening and learning pleasure. Players can use the accompanying book, "50 Greats for the Piano" to follow along with the music and learn how to play iconic pieces. They can also simply listen to the songs and enjoy these recognizable piano favorites. This feature is sure to add hours of enjoyment to this terrific instrument.
