A Compact Digital Piano with an Acoustic Feel - The Yamaha P-225 88-Key Piano
Yamaha’s P Series digital pianos are loved by piano players who want the comfortable feel of an acoustic piano but with a more manageable size and weight. Featuring a much shorter and thinner body design with a compact style, compared to its predecessor, this model looks beautiful from any angle, and blends in well with any room. To achieve a smaller product chassis, Yamaha 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.

Virtual Resonance Modeling
The P-225 includes 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. This model is great for players who are looking for a weighted keyboard that feels like an acoustic piano, and those who want a piano in their house but don’t have much space for it, or people who need a second piano that they can take to gigs.
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, and is more compact than previous models.
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 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.
Smart Pianist 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 need to pull out the manual to see how things work.
