The new Yamaha YDP-163 Digital Piano is the latest in a long line of premium digital instruments built by this innovative company that will elegantly suit any home or venue. Available in a range of colours, this powerful yet easy to use digital piano gives you an authentic piano experience and high-quality practical sounds to enrich your performance.
GRADED HAMMER 3 KEYBOARD
To give you the unmistakable touch of an acoustic piano, the YDP-163 has Yamaha’s acclaimed Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) 88-key piano action. This not only gives you a heavier feel in the lower register that gradually gets lighter in the upper octaves, but also the ability for quick note repetition and authentic expressive control thanks to the 3-sensor system. The Keytops are then finished in a synthetic ivory for a truly ‘acoustic’ feel that also absorbs moisture preventing any finger slipping.
PURE CF SOUND ENGINE
Yamaha are masters of grand piano production which has given them a powerful advantage when creating their range of digital pianos. The sound of the renowned Yamaha CFIIIS 9′ concert grand piano has been painstakingly sampled to give you a rich and expressive tone anywhere you need it. The CF engine translates every dynamic of your playing with astonishing accuracy that both beginners and seasoned professionals will love.
As well as the built-in grand piano, there are a total of 10 premium quality sounds that can help you deliver incredible performances. The YDP-163 also allows for split and layer modes so you can combine the internal sounds however you wish.
The Yamaha YDP-163 Digital Piano includes an easy to use 2 track sequencer that is an exceptional tool for capturing performances or as a practice aid. Combine different voices and overlay passages to make your own compositions. All recordings are made in a standard MIDI format and as such can be stored on a computer via the built-in USB port.
Further to this, the USB port allows you to connect the YDP-163 to an iPad for use with a whole suite of Yamaha apps designed to help improve your playing and create music. This can be done via an optional Yamaha UD-BT01 Bluetooth interface or a Lightning-USB camera adaptor.
The Yamaha YDP-163 Digital Piano pushes boundaries on what is usually possible at this price point, especially when you add the Intelligent Acoustic Control feature to give you a naturally dispersed sound through the built-in speakers or through the dual headphone outputs. Bringing balance to beginners and professionals alike, the Yamaha YDP-163 Digital Piano is a thing of beauty.
