A compact piano with the sound and features to satisfy the needs of advanced players
Yamaha’s P Series digital pianos are loved by piano players around the world who want the comfortable feel of an acoustic piano in an instrument with a more manageable size and weight.
Compared to its predecessor, the P-225 features a much shorter and thinner body design with a compact style. This model looks beautiful from any angle, and blends in well with any room. To achieve a smaller product chassis, we 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.
The P-225 features the sounds of Yamaha’s premier 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.
Whether you are an advanced piano player or a serious beginner with a desire to learn to play, the P-225 is the perfect choice.
Newly developed GHC (Graded Hammer Compact) keyboard offers a realistic playing feel
One of the main concerns of 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; whether the keyboard will respond accurately when they play quicker passages; whether there are any inconsistencies between how hard they play the keys and the sound that results; and whether the keyboard offers 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 (Graded Hammer Compact) keyboard on the new P Series reproduces the playing comfort of its predecessors in every way.
Further, the keyboard unit is more compact than in previous models, while still offering an outstanding playing feel.
The sound of Yamaha’s premier concert grand piano, the CFX
The P-225 gives you the sound of Yamaha’s top-of-the-line 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. With the P-225, you can enjoy the sound of a concert grand that’s played and loved by renowned pianists, along with its infinitely realistic resonance. Of course, this instrument doesn’t require tuning.
Place the instrument wherever you like, or even take it with you
One trouble that plagues pianists is that the traditional piano is often too large to fit into a room. To add to this, piano players can’t take their instruments out with them. The P-225 provides a brilliant solution to these problems. The stylish design of this instrument blends well with any room, and is available in black or white color variations to match the mood. With the optional soft case, you can take this instrument with you to the studio, to live gigs or on a trip—whenever you need it.
The P-225 features 24 Voices. In addition to several grand piano voices including Yamaha’s premier concert grand CFX sound, you can enjoy a wide variety of highly practical voices for keyboard players, including Stage E.Piano, DX E.Piano, Jazz Organ, Strings and more.
The P-225 also features E.Clavichord and Vibraphone Voices.
The P-225 comes with 71 preset songs, including 21 demo songs that are appropriate for each Voice, such as grand piano, electric piano, various organs, harpsichords including Jazz Organ, E.Clavichord, Vibraphone and so forth. We encourage you to listen to these demo songs, which cover a variety of genres from light classical to baroque masterpieces, R&B, pop music and more, to get an idea of how the P-225 opens up possibilities for your musical expression.
Practice with headphones—whenever you want, as much as you want
One of the greatest advantages of a digital piano is the ability to practice while listening to what you play through headphones. This solves the problem of not wanting to disturb family members or neighbors when you play, not to mention eliminating the need for them to hear your playing when it’s not at its best.
*Headphones are optional
Recording, metronome, and rhythm functions to make your piano practice more fun and effective
If you’re wanting to listen to your playing objectively, or to practice only your right hand along with what you play in your left hand, the recording function is just the thing you need. Also, we recommend using the metronome if you want to practice along with a fixed tempo. If you get tired of playing alone, rhythm accompaniment is also available in genres such as rock, pop, jazz, and bossa nova. This also offers a great way to learn genre-specific rhythms.
Play music from the instrument’s speakers via Bluetooth® audio
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 favorite music through the instrument’s speakers. You can also play along with the sound coming from the instrument’s speakers.
Sound Boost function for bringing out the sound of the piano
Have you ever been in a session with a band and felt that your sound was being overpowered by the other instruments and getting drowned out in the mix? Worry no more—the P-225 is equipped with a Sound Boost function that switches to a punchy and powerful sound for such situations.
The P-225 offers new settings for enhancing the instrument’s sound as you play and record, while audio data plays back on your smart device. Use this feature when you record using Yamaha’s Smart Pianist app or via Rec’n Share.
The Stereophonic Optimizer
When using headphones, the Stereophonic Optimizer lets players enjoy the dispersed sound heard when sitting in front of an acoustic piano. With the Stereophonic Optimizer, Voices sampled from acoustic pianos appear to come from the body of the instrument. This provides a comfortable, natural experience that removes the drawbacks of performing with headphones.
Access the features of this instrument with greater ease from the app
By linking the P-225 with Yamaha’s dedicated “Smart Pianist” digital piano app, you can intuitively perform all operations on the P-225 from the screen of your smart device. There’s no longer any need to pull out the manual to see how things work.
*When connecting a smart device to a musical instrument to use the app, you can either use a cable or connect wirelessly using the Yamaha UD-BT01 (sold separately; for iOS only).
Minimalistic design that recalls the feel of a grand piano
With a design that pays homage to the classic aesthetic of a grand piano, the P-225 blends well with the interior of any home, and is intended to offer the player the true feeling of playing a grand.
Button-style interface that makes it easy for anyone to use
This model uses physical buttons rather than a touch panel, making it easy for anyone to operate the most essential functions. Aside from piano sounds, we have carefully selected only the most frequently used sounds, including keyboard instrument sounds like electric piano, and harpsichord, as well as strings.
Two-way speaker system delivers expansive sound
The position and angle of the speakers on both the front and back of the P-225 were adjusted to reproduce the sounds reflected from the soundboard and lid of an acoustic grand piano as closely as possible. This placement offers the player a comfortable sonic environment when the P-225 is placed against a wall.
A tone escapement has also been installed on this instrument to make the sound clearer and more readily heard, bringing the best acoustic balance to the player.
In addition to the speakers that offer sharp and clear mid- to high-range tones and prominent low-end for a well-balanced sound, the P-225’s speakers feature tweeters for a richer high-end tone.
Practice with 303 free pieces of classical sheet music
The Smart Pianist app mentioned above comes with PDF scores of 303 classical pieces for practice such as Bayer, Burgmüller, Czerny, Hanon and more, which you are free to display and use on the screen of your smart device.
Sound that’s clearly distinguishable even at low volumes, reducing sonic fatigue
Have you ever turned down the volume because you were worried about sound leaking into the surrounding environment, only to find that the instrument becomes harder to hear or that it’s less rewarding to play? The P-225 is equipped with Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC), which automatically adjusts the sound quality according to your volume settings. This system makes it easier to hear the sound you play by slightly raising the volume of the treble and bass parts to match the characteristics of the human ear, which typically has trouble distinguishing the higher- and lower-end ranges at low volumes.
The P-225 now offers this feature for when you are using headphones. This makes it easier on your ears and allows you to enjoy playing comfortably, even when you practice with headphones for long periods of time.
For those who want to really play the piano instead of enjoying it casually on a tabletop, we offer an optional L-200 stand and LP-1 three-pedal unit that provide the same features as you would find on a grand piano (including a damper pedal that supports half-pedaling).
Using the stand provides stability, proper height, and correct posture when you play, and adding the sustain pedal lets you enjoy a more authentic style of performing.
As a sustain pedal, we offer the FC3A, which supports half-pedaling.
Easily record sound and video, and upload your own performances
If you want to take a video of your performance and share it on platforms such as YouTube and TikTok, Rec’n’Share is the way to go. Connect the P-225 to your smart device, and record both video and audio at the same time to complete your video.
* A cable connection is required. Make sure to purchase the correct cable for your smart device.
Easy to assemble
The optional stand can be easily and safely assembled, when purchased separately. When purchasing the dedicated stand, please purchase the L-200, which is compatible with the P-225.
Dedicated keyboard bag for carrying
If you want to take your piano with you when traveling, or when you go to live performances or to work, a dedicated keyboard bag (SC-KB851) is available as an optional accessory. This case securely protects your instrument as you carry it.
