Authentic Yamaha Tone and Touch

PureCF sampling is Yamaha's process of meticulously recording their acclaimed CFIIIS 9' concert grand piano in order to digitally recreate the sound and nuances of this instrument for the player of the YDP-142. A weighted action that gives heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end recreates the feel of the actual hammers in an acoustic instrument. This is perfect for a progressing pianist as it builds proper fingering technique. Touch sensitivity is variable between hard, medium and soft depending on finger strength and play style, allowing children to gradually build up power in their hands.

Expressive Pedaling

When pedaling on a grand piano you can control the subtleties and nuances to perform more expressive pieces. Continuous or half damper pedal control on the YDP-142 allows continuously increasing amounts of note sustain, from slight to full, as you depress the sustain pedal deeper. Yamaha's Damper Resonance digitally reduces the sympathetic interaction between the strings on an acoustic piano. When you use the damper pedal the harmonics of other strings wash over the notes you play until the pedal is released.

Perfect Tone Even When Quiet

Yamaha's Acoustic Optimizer is a new and unique technology. A special design and position within the instrument means the Optimizer can physically adjust the acoustic flow controlling resonance and enriching overall sound. This combined with digital technologies provides very impressive expressive capabilities.

Fun and Practical Digital Features

For students wishing to listen to their progress the built in, 2 track recorder is a useful device. You can also record the right and left hands separately for students who need to practice one hand only and even slow it down to a different tempo, you play one hand whilst song recorder plays the other. To make practice more exciting you can combine two voices together, like piano and strings, to create an inspiring new playing experience. This also makes for expanded creativity and performance options.

The YDP-142 has two headphones sockets so two people can listen and play in privacy without disturbing anyone else. 50 classic piano songs are provided in an included music book and also in the built-in song memory so you have plenty of pieces to get you started. You can learn these pieces using reduced tempo, play one hand at a time or just use them as inspiration or background music within your home.

Grows as You Do

This piano is an affordable and versatile starter piano that has the ability to respond as your skill level increases. With enough power to give drop-out free performances even when layering voices or playing two handed sustained chords with heavy pedaling. This means you don't have to worry about replacing the piano as you become a more advanced player. The range of finishes mean the YDP-142 can be an attractive and fun part of your home for years to come.
