Looking for the feel of a real concert grand piano? From the first time your fingers tickle the ivories on the P-45, you'll know why Yamaha digital pianos are known far and wide for having some of the best-feeling keys on the market. That's because the P-45 sport's Yamaha's Graded Hammer Standard keybed.

Yamaha's classic sound engine, AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) sampling uses digital technology to record the sound of an acoustic piano. AWM Stereo Sampling creates a deeper, richer and more spacious sound by using pairs of waveforms (L and R) captured with two microphones. The P-45 uses AWM to play one sample per key at varying levels of volume and timbre.
A compact and lightweight design makes the P-45 easy to get around. Slim and stylish form with a depth of less than 12 inches, the P-45 requires little space. 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.
In addition to the P-45, this Playground Sessions bundle includes Audio Technica ATHT300 Dynamic Monitor Headphone, an On Stage KSP100 Universal Sustain Keyboard Pedal, a Power Chord, and a USB cable to connect to Playground Sessions on your computer or iPad.
