The P-85 features everything to enter this worlds rehearsal and living rooms at an entry level price. Ten different authentic sounds feed the 64 voice AWM tone generator. The built-in metronome plus the double phones jack on the front make the P-85 the ideal rehearsal partner either with or without teacher - even at times when neighbours want to sleep. And thanks to its compact shape and its light weight of nearly 12 kg the P-85 recommends itself as a (trans)portable Piano.

Close to the original.

The P-85 has an amazingly realistic sound quality usually only found in more expensive models. It features an array of commonly used sounds such as grand pianos, electric pianos, organs, harpsichords, vibraphones, and strings. Using Yamaha’s own AWM stereo sampling, the sounds were recorded directly from a variety of instruments. Each voice is recorded in stereo, and thus faithfully replicates the sound and warmth of the original instrument. And thanks to the 64-voice tone generator the P-85 won't run out of sound even in passages with heavy pedaling.

Graded Hammer Standard keyboard.

Responsive Piano action is at your fingertips with the Graded Hammer Standard keyboard. Yamaha’s GHS keyboard recreates the feel of a grand piano. This allows you seamless transition from digital practice to acoustic performance. The P-85 not only duplicates the sound of a real piano, it emulates the feel and action as well.
