Yamaha P-80 Electronic Piano
Complete with power adapter
This keyboard is in excellent shape. We have not found any functional problems with it and cosmetically it is very nice with just a few small scuffs and scratches here and there and a small dent on the back left corner. We're including a working power adapter. The P-80 is a compact Electronic Piano with 88-key Graded Hammer Effect Keyboard, rich and expressive stereo-sampled piano voices and other essential instrument voices are available on-board.
Piano performance crafted for the digital age
The GHE keyboard is one of Yamaha’s best keyboard they’ve made, providing plenty of realistic resistance to imitate the feel of an acoustic piano. Despite the fact that it has fully weighted keys, the P80 itself weighs only 37 pounds, making it one of the most realistic portable keyboards you will find. Along with this, the P80 has a great piano sound that is produced using industry-leading recording technology as well as all the dozens of extra features and settings that Yamaha digital pianos are renowned for.
KEY ACTION AND REALISM
The GHE keyboard that the P80 comes equipped with is an absolutely excellent keyboard. The company advertises this keyboard as being virtually indistinguishable from an acoustic piano, and they are justified in claiming this. The keys have plenty of weight and resistance, and that resistance increases as the notes get lower, just like you were playing an upright acoustic.
If you are not completely satisfied with the Yamaha P80’s sensitivity right out of the box, the keyboard sensitivity can be adjusted to fit your own preferences. For a portable keyboard, the key action on the P80 is absolutely terrific. If you want to purchase a portable keyboard that does not sacrifice anything in terms of realism then the P80 is an excellent choice to consider.
Yamaha is a master at making digital pianos sound just like acoustic ones, and the P80 is no exception. This keyboard produces a rich and resonating sound that has so many subtle nuances that it would take an expert pianist to point them all out. It is important to note that the P80 does not have built-in speakers, meaning you will need either headphones or a set of external speakers. When played through a pair of good piano headphones or external speakers, however, the P80 has a great piano sound that is just as good for home practicing as it is for stage performances.
OTHER FEATURES AND SPECIFICATIONS
The P80 is loaded with useful features. These include dual headphone jacks which are perfect for student/teacher playing, MIDI connectivity, a built-in metronome, a detachable music stand, a sustain pedal, record and playback ability, dozens of digital effects, 64-note polyphony, and a rolling hard carry case for easy transport.
The P80 weighs 37 pounds, which is a little heavier than some portable keyboards but not so heavy that it can’t be easily transported. Considering its fully-weighted 88-key keyboard, the P80 is actually quite light.
It is important to remember that when buying a used keyboard it may not operate or look exactly like a new one. Used keyboards develop wear over time that can cause such items as function buttons, knobs, sliders etc. to fail to operate as smoothly or easily as when they were new. Our technician does check these items and if they are deemed unusable they are replaced but some function buttons may require more pressure or manipulation to make the appropriate changes. Cosmetically your used keyboard may have scuffs, scratches, cracks to plastic pieces, discolored keys or other visual impairments that might not show up in the photos. We try to mention any obvious visual imperfections but may not consider them serious enough to post in the listing.
