For a lightweight, compact premium quality stage piano, the Yamaha P-45 is a powerful contender. Be it in the home, on the stage or in the studio, the P-45 has an array of features that make this one of the most competitive digital pianos around at this price range. Further to this, the P-45 budle package aslo comes complete with a stand, bench and headphones so that you can enjoy one of the finest portable piano experiences right out of the box.
One of the most important components of any digital piano, is the point where the artist connects... the keyboard. Here, Yamaha have featured a graded hammer standard weighted keyboard that mimics an acoustic piano's weighting with superb realism. The lower register notes weigh more than their higher counterparts to give you the correct amount of resistance when you play. The keys are all topped with a matte effect finish that makes the touch of the P-45 incredibly fluid and a magical joy to play.
Powerful sound engine
There really has been no compromise made with the sound of the Yamaha P-45 thanks to the inclusion of the new and improved Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) tone generator. Stunningly real pianos are yours to enjoy along with electric pianos, strings and much much more.
Voices can be layered and split as you wish for some of the most superb ensemble performances and there is also a duo mode that makes the P-45 incredibly useful in a teacher/student situation.
All the connections you need
All the essential connections that you could ever need are here too, a 1/4" jack out can be used to connect headphones for silent practice or to send the signal to a mixing desk for amplification or recording. You have USB connectivity to connect the P-45 to your Mac or PC for use with sequencing software, and finally there is a socket present for the included sustain pedal for even more expressive playing.
The Yamaha P-45 bundle is a stage piano package that exceeds all expectations and will be an instrument that you can enjoy and develop with for years to come.

However, there was not any USB cables (which was OK since I haven't checked if it was included) and my headsets are too small for me as they lack of anthropemetric measures for adults (although it would suit a child).
