The Yamaha P 155 can either be purchased in black or in ebony. I have the used the black one for a year now and I love it! It is an 88 key with 17 voices and 11 effects. The keyboard is an 88 key , but it still doesn’t feel like an 88 key. It is light enough to move around with you and it is a good size that can fit in your home or in your care. It is very clean looking as well which was a key point for me because I was going to leave this in the living room of my house and use it as the main piano since we didn’t have room for a full or an upright piano. Everything you need to play is right on this board, it has your on board speakers and it comes with a stylish stand and pedal. You can also record your songs right to your flash drive, that was a key decision for me purchasing a good full digital stage piano , I had to have the ability to easily record what I was playing and get it to the computer or on a CD easily.
The great thing about having a actually stage piano rather than just using your workstation as one, is that you don’t have to have a wait time to load up. The Yamaha P 155 doesn’t load up , you just turn it on and start playing. It is very easy to use and set up. It does come with a manual but I don’t know why because you don’t need it at all. With an on keyboard metronome and you can tune as well, you just cant go wrong with this stage piano.
Comes with an sustain pedal and aux input, the total weight of the keyboard is less than 50 pounds which is not bad when it comes time to move it from place to place to play. It takes an AC power adapter but it comes with it. The Yamaha P 155 is really ready right out of the box and will look great in your home or on a stage or wherever you have it set up at. Just in case you are learning to play, it comes loaded with 50 preset songs. So whether you are a beginner or a veteran you can use the Yamaha P 155 easily.
Very high end stage piano with a low price, you can not go wrong with buying this. I am happy with my choice to use this stage piano and it looks great in my home!
The Yamaha P-155 was the piano I wanted. I spent so much time in a local music store banging away on this piano in awe, especially since it didn't cost so terribly much. I couldn't afford it at the time, so I got a Casio Privia PX-330. (See my review for that, as well!)
You'll never wont for polyphony on this big guy. This is a very crucial point, because while I love the quality of Yamaha instruments, Yamaha does have a rather despicable habit of artificially limiting its lower end models to entice buyers into the higher end. For example, if you look at the P155's younger brother, the P95, you'll see next to no connections, and a 64-note polyphony. Anemic compared to its 128-polyphonic and full featured peers!
This is also peevishly exacerbated by the lack of a direct USB connection to the computer. It's not something I needed, as I do own an audio interface with MIDI, which thankfully, the P155 has the decency to support, but seeing competitors load their pianos with features while Yamaha pretentiously totes its superior sonic signature around in a Burberry handbag does get a little obnoxious from time to time.
The P155 is a full piano; it has the 88 keys expected of a digital piano, and while it does have the standard extra sounds that come on the board (these are actually quite phenomenal!), the focus is, of course, on the actual piano sound.
This is obvious because many of the parameters for the piano sound are right there on the surface; there are no clunky menus that you have to scroll through, (like on my PX-330, which doesn't even have non-volatile memory! Gross.) with adjustments for curves, brilliance, and other things accessible with their own dedicated buttons.
This is the part where I tell you to go listen to the samples that are no doubt floating around the internet. You'll see a definite increase in quality from the next tier of pianos down from the P155 (P95, PX330, SP250) so I urge you to go find them yourself. I'll tell you, for the sake of the completeness of the review, that it's phenomenal!
And the touch is something to dream about. Very few digital pianos come close to the P155. Even the Roland's, with their precious realistic escapement somehow seem to pale in comparison to this. I have no idea how, but remember that this is an incredibly subjective point.
It's a shame that this wasn't cheaper when I was shopping for a piano. If it were the price that it is now (about $1000) I would have sprung the extra cash for it. If you have the money now, get it. You won't be disappointed.
I tried Korg Sp-250, P105, Casio PX350 (in Germany, was not available in France disappointed ...) + the "low-end
What I wanted, I was given the piano after a few (dozen) years off, I did not want to put huge amounts of money, but still have a real piano keyboard
I looked at the P105 for some time, but the sound of the P155 is much better
And then a Milonga in destocking (-30%) .... to € 909, the value for money is pretty good.

Only some option calls for the manual!
the manual is super clear
I did not tjrs used the connector (not supplied) to connect to the PC
black dot: the pedals is just dragging on the floor when we play! nerva during long piece!
The piano sounds exellent (piano 1)
raliste hyper, even if by keeping a cot Yamaha acoustic piano means that it is a piano numrique!
Otherwise we do not even notice!
I do not use the effect of all!
The normal sound of the piano is REALLY the purest in my opinion
trs good raction VLOC the same too!
