In this blog post, we’ll equip Nashville piano buyers with useful insights to help them navigate towards the perfect Yamaha digital piano. Join us as we explore why Yamaha and Miller Piano Specialists make the ideal orchestra for your next piano purchase.

Before we delve deeper, it’s essential to clarify what sets a ‘digital piano’ apart. Unlike an acoustic piano, which produces sound through the action of hammers striking strings and subsequent soundboard amplification, a digital piano has no strings. Instead, each key corresponds to a specific electronically-generated sound, further amplified by a speaker.

However, Yamaha’s digital pianos aren’t entirely devoid of hammers. The hammers here are designed to mimic the dynamic response to touch, offering an acoustic piano-like playing experience. Essential to a digital piano’s identity is its full-sized (88-notes), fully weighted keys akin to an acoustic piano.

The Benefits of Buying A Yamaha Digital Piano

Embodying over a century’s experience in crafting the touch, tone, and aesthetics of their acoustic pianos, Yamaha then spent over 50 years replicating this excellence in a digital format. The result? A series of digital pianos that not only sound like a Yamaha acoustic piano but also provide a similar feel.

Yamaha’s repertoire includes four distinct categories of digital pianos, which we’ll be discussing below:
