The Arius range of digital pianos have been developed by Yamaha to provide unrelenting sound and build quality in conjunction with an authentic feel whilst trying to not hurt your pocket. These instruments serve as incredible value for money, with all of the above selection being more than capable of getting any prospective students through their grades. Their clean, elegant aesthetic and availability in a range of finishes also makes them perfect for any hoe environment. Perfect for beginning students and experienced players alike, the ARIUS / YDP series provides true piano sound and feel. The Graded Hammer keyboards of the YDP-160 and the Graded Hammer Standard keyboard of the YDP-140/S31 make it a true joy to play, both in practice and in performance. The 3-level AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling voices deliver remarkably authentic sound. Moreover, the damper pedal includes a half-damper effect, giving you nuanced expressive control over the sustained sound.
