Reviews

Keyboard Magazine August 2005

 

Don't you love that unmistakable feeling of sitting down at a gorgeous Bosendorfer or Hamburg Steinway and thinking that it could be an amazing instrument for that next gig? At least until reality sets in and you realize you're short a couple hundred G's, a road crew, and a professional tuner. Thank goodness for electronic stage pianos, instruments that seek to give a similar experience, but with superior portability, lower cost, and lots of nifty features to boot.

Sit down at the Yamaha P250, turn up the built-in speakers, close your eyes, and feel the piano envy slip away. A solid, fun, all-in-one instrument, the P250 combines a well-crafted piano action with excellent sounds, a 16-track sequencer, and MIDI controller capabilities.

The P250 is an expressive, intuitive instrument that will delight many players. If a truly acoustic feel is what you're after, and you can haul this reasonably hefty axe, it's worth a serious look. The built-in speakers and ease of use also make it a strong candidate for technological newbies, players who gig in smaller venues, and folks who just don't want to deal with external amplifiers. Not to say the P250 won't find a home with touring pros - many road warriors will continue to favor it for its mix of authentic piano mimicry and relative portability.

If a stage piano with built-in speakers is truly what you're after, you might also consider laying your fingers on the slimmer Casio Previa PX300 and the Roland FP-5 as part of your search, though the P250's combination of power and quality sound will be hard to top. And if internal speakers aren't that big a deal, the RD-700SX also presents an appealing package - see Keyboard's April '05 issue for a full review.

With strong piano sounds, touch, and amplification, I think the P250 lives up to Yamaha's claims. If you're in the market for a stage piano, be sure to give this one a whirl and see if it doesn't make that piano envy disappear.
