Yamaha P120

Yamaha P120Published on 08/21/03 at 15:00
I bought the P120 mostly because I needed an 88-key weighted keyboard with great portability and cost-efficient quality. I bought it at Guitar Center for $1099, excluding accessories.

The P120 is very light and easy to move, which is a plus for any keyboardist who travels frequently for gigs. Also, the majority of the sound samples are great for the amount of money that the keyboard costs. The grand piano patch sounds great in the lower register, and the e. pianos and clavichords sound fairly good as well. The touch of the keys is also very good, if you're used to playing on weighted models.

The P120 is very light and easy to move, which is a plus for any keyboardist who travels frequently for gigs. Also, the majority of the sound samples are great for the amount of money that the keyboard costs. The grand piano patch sounds great in the lower register, and the e. pianos and clavichords sound fairly good as well. The touch of the keys is also very good, if you're used to playing on weighted models.

Playing high notes can sometimes be a pain, especially if the sound feeds through an amp. Be sure to turn the mid high and high ranges on your amp lower if you do decide to go that route. Also, the church organ and strings sounds are pretty cheesy by themselves. The guitar sound isn't much better. The user song mode is limited (two tracks) and you can only do three. This is definitely not a model to get if production and beats are the focus; the P120 is strictly a performance tool.

The body design is fairly modern, especially the silver model. Seems to be pretty durable, although i haven't had it for very long. All the connections are on the side of the keyboard as opposed to the usual location in the back. Comes with a clear, stylish stand that looks very good.

Overall, the P120 is a good instrument for the performing keyboardist who doesn't like a whole lot of bells and whistles that add weight and confusion to the instrument. The P120's purpose is simple: to create a great playing interface that enables the player to jam to his or her heart's content. Its light weight makes it very portable, and you should be good to go with a stand and amplifier setup.

I bought a p120 recently and have played it
a lot (3 to 4 hours) in the 1st two days of
owvership. I bought this unit to use it
for gigging and parties to accompany my own
singing. Also, to use in a band setting
and I run it through a Roland keyboard amp.
I got it at Mars in Plano Tx. Price: $1099.00.




I love the Key action and Most of the Voices.
Sonds great through My Roland amp.

The one shortcoming of the unit is in the upper
one third of the notes. The high notes.
In my opinion, no matter how much I try and
manipulate the sounds, I still find myself
cringing when the higher notes are played.
reminds me too much of a PSR220 I own.

I hate to return merchandise but I may...…

my 30 day trial is over.

I haven't owned the unit long enough to
evaluate. It is a beautiful keyboard in
appearance.

The Yamaha P-120 is a power amplifier designed for uses of all types. We have one of these at the studio where I'm working, although I've only set it up and used it on a few occasions. We have a lot of 'floating' gear, as there are a number of different studios on site here and it's good to have a bunch of miscellaneous gear as you never know when someone might need something. I've usually set this up with a set of passive Tannoy monitors, although they can be used in louder settings for a PA systems if needed. There is another Yamaha P-120, which is a newer electric piano model, not to be confused with this power amp. The amp has a seven band equalizer, although we didn't use it at...…

The Yamaha P-120 is a power amplifier designed for uses of all types. We have one of these at the studio where I'm working, although I've only set it up and used it on a few occasions. We have a lot of 'floating' gear, as there are a number of different studios on site here and it's good to have a bunch of miscellaneous gear as you never know when someone might need something. I've usually set this up with a set of passive Tannoy monitors, although they can be used in louder settings for a PA systems if needed. There is another Yamaha P-120, which is a newer electric piano model, not to be confused with this power amp. The amp has a seven band equalizer, although we didn't use it at all since of course in the studio this wouldn't be necessary. However, if you're using it for live sound or otherwise, I can see it being useful to tune it to the space you're working in. This unit will fit in a traditional rack casing if you so choose, taking up two spaces. It also has handles for moving it in and out of racks, as it's decently heavy. The Yamaha P-120 power amplifier seems to be pretty rare for whatever reason, but it does the job just fine for us as a back up and sees occasional use. I can't say much about the price since I really am not sure what kind this would command if you would even be able to find one. I don't think that it would be worth it to search around for one of these, as it's a pretty basic power amp and there are many other models out there just like it. So while I don't know that this is the first amp I'd recommend if you're looking for a set for your studio monitors, if you had one or found one cheap it would certainly be sufficient.
