There are many different varieties of pianos to choose from. Sometimes, it can feel overwhelming when trying to select the “right” piano for you. If you feel overwhelmed, then you’re in luck! In this article, we will take a deeper look into Yamaha digital pianos and the benefits that they offer.

But before we dive into the details, we want to clarify what makes a piano a “digital piano”. The main difference between an acoustic piano and a digital piano is the way that sounds are produced. An acoustic piano produces sound by striking hammers into strings. The vibrations produced are transmitted to the soundboard, which amplifies the sound. A digital piano has no strings. Each key is mapped to a specific sound. An electronic tone generator produces the sounds which are amplified using a speaker.

Much like acoustic pianos, Yamaha’s digital pianos are equipped with hammers. These hammers are not for the purpose of striking the strings, but to capture the dynamics that the key is played. This yields a dynamic response to touch that more closely approximates the experience of playing an acoustic piano.

Also, one important feature that defines a digital piano is that it has full-sized (88-notes), fully weighted keys, like an acoustic piano.

The Benefits of Buying A Yamaha Digital Piano

Yamaha has spent more a century in perfecting the touch, tone and beauty of their acoustic pianos. As an encore, Yamaha has spent more than 50 years reproducing everything about their incredible acoustic pianos in a digital piano. The result is a line of digital pianos that not only sound like a Yamaha acoustic piano, they feel like one.
