Yamaha's unique Pure CF Sound Engine is the result of over a century of acoustic piano craftsmanship combined with state-of-the-art technology and expertise.
Yamaha is the industry leader in digital piano technology, and you can hear this in the sound of digital pianos that utilise the Pure CF engine. P-121 includes the sound of the renowned Yamaha CFIIIS 9' concert grand piano and is faithfully reproduced, allowing for incredible dynamics and expressiveness making Pure CF equipped digital pianos worthy of the Yamaha name.
A Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) 73-key piano keyboard provides a heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end, and is similar to the acoustic piano.
The newly improved 2-way speaker system produces an expansive piano sound in both upward and downward directions.
This enables the player to enjoy a rich sound field as though you were sitting in front of an acoustic piano.
When using headphones, the Stereophonic Optimizer lets players enjoy the same dispersed sound heard when sitting in front of an acoustic piano. With the Stereophonic Optimizer, Voices sampled from acoustic pianos appear to come from the body of the instrument.
This provides a comfortable, natural experience that eliminates the downsides of performing with headphones.
The P-121 is light and compact for easy portability.
With the dedicated keyboard bag SC-KB750, you can bring P-121 everywhere you want.
The new "table EQ" feature enables the player to maintain optimal acoustics, so even if you play on a hard, flat surface, you can get the best possible sound.
P-121 has on-board Bass and Drum tracks that keep your playing in time. There's a variety of rhythm patterns to choose from depending on the the vibe you're going for. From rock to ballads, use these rhythms to add an element of fun to your practicing, or simply use them as a virtual drummer for your performances.
Our "Smart Pianist"app allows you to control the many functions included in Yamaha digital pianos with your smart device. Voices, rhythms and other settings can be selected while looking at the screen, making it easy to enjoy new functions with ease.
You can also save your favorite settings for quick recall at any time.
