One of the best entry level products
IamMichael, 02.09.2019
I just love this piano so much. I live in an apartment which not that big, so the fact that the Yamaha P45 is portable is great. Its size makes it quite easy to carry it around, compared to other digital pianos that is, keep in mind that it is not a laptop. The keys are great for someone who is looking for the experience a normal piano offers, but can't afford one. You also have to keep in mind that it is an entry level product, so of course you could find better, but not for this money. I am more than satisfied with the 10 voices it offers. I play in a worship band in church, so for those of you who are looking for more options when it comes to voices or sounds, I suggest using a program on your laptop, like ProTools or Ableton Live, it will help in this regard. One of the downsides I found are the speakers which are not that great, but a lot of times I like to use a good pair of headphones, and that's a game changer. The other downside is the sustain pedal it comes with, which is quite bad. You can definitely use it and will get used to it, but my suggestion is to upgrade.
All in all it is a great digital piano that you will have a ton of fun with and will not let you down. And if you're looking for something better, make sure you got a larger budget, because there are many pianos more expensive than this that don't deliver the quality this one does.

Yamaha P45
Dan1991, 12.08.2017
I bought this keyboard as an introduction to piano. I wanted an instrument I could practice silently at home and with wide range of adjustable volume and headphone option, this keyboard is perfect for that.

Yamaha have a well deserved reputation in electronic instruments and it is easy to see why, even on their budget instruments like the P45. The plastics are thick, not flimsy and the keyboard has generously proportioned ergonomics.

The sound is really quite good through headphones, though the onboard speakers leave a little to be desired. You could be forgiven for mistaking it for a real piano, with your eyes closed and headphones on.

It has a reasonable range of features and sounds, and it's not covered in buttons and knobs like so many others. There is a handy and intuitive function button that allows you to change your sound type, which you can select by using the black and white keys. The black keys are matt, as opposed to gloss, which means fingerprints are not so much of a worry.

I'm impressed by the realism of the grand piano sounds, and if this keyboard was to fail I would certainly buy another.

Pure joy
mariopereira, 22.02.2019
This was bought for a friend and recommended by another friend that is a piano teacher, my friend is a guitar player and wanted to start playing the piano for a long time now.

As a complete piano beginner so far he's loving it, the keys are very smooth and although he's kind of overwhelmed (because well, there's a lot of keys in there) he's loving it so far.

The construction itself feels super solid as you would expect for a Yahama product, the built-in speakers of the piano are no awesome but they seem good for built-in, but with headphones plugged in it's another story, it sounds so much better!

This should be an absolute joy to play with external speakers, but I'd be guessing here.

The sustain pedal that comes with it feels cheap and doesn't feel very smooth so we were recommended by the friend that is a piano teacher to buy the Yamaha FC 4A along with the piano and so we did.

Please keep in mind the dimensions of the piano because it is not small, the box that arrived by the post was almost higher than me, and I'm 6 foot.

Best piano for this price
Harry Ross, 06.05.2019
I'm very happy to use Yamaha P-45.
This is the best way to start learning playing piano as it gives you nice keys feeling like on a real piano.
Sound quality and loudness is very good. Piano has a lot of very useful functions like metronome, duo playing function, adding a reverb to the sound, layering two voices.
Also the USB to Host function is great. You can connect your piano to a PC and use in any DAW.
At the moment Yamaha also giving a free 3 months using of their Flowkey app, when you register your product. This app is great for learning piano both for beginners and intermediate players.
Yamaha P-45 have Polyphony with 64 voices, that is good for couple of years of playing. But if you are professional player you need to look for something with larger Polyphony.
P-45 supports FC 3A Sustaing pedal. Also you get the FC 5 sustain pedal in kit.

Great Piano but the sound quality is so so...
galtalor, 19.06.2019
I really enjoy my Yamaha P45,
but I have to admit that I expected the sound quality to be better,
while it does sounds like a good piano, it feels like the sound is missing warmth and overtones and the sound may come off as a bit thin.
for my next piano I would probably go with the Roland equivalent, but until then, I shall keep enjoying my P45 :)

Keyboard weight is great, features are nice (not more), the headphones jack is in the back and not really accessible comfortably.

Best instrument for beginners by price and quality!
CyprusViolin, 26.12.2018
I am piano and violin teacher and I've bought it for my house. We rent the flat and couldn't allow upright piano. Also, we live in Cyprus, and humidity is very bad for pianos. Is necessary to tune the real one once a half of the year or more often. But this Yamaha P-45 B solves all the problems! It has 88 keys (which is important for beginners not to be puzzled and lost in octaves after) and weight keys! Also you can buy a bag for it (what I did) and put it into every time when you don't need to use it. The price is VERY loyal! So you easily have space! Highly recommend it to all my students and to all Thomann customers!

Great keyboard
ABScott, 19.01.2019
Great keyboard for practicing on a piano with nice authentic sounding piano and amazing feel. However, if you wan't to record using this specific model, there is only a headphone out which really isn't great for recording.
The reverbs and sounds on it can't be faulted though, thouroughly enjoy using it.

Great beginners piano
Jule553648, 10.04.2017
Piano plays great. Even my friend who is an experienced player likes it.

Pros:
Great digital piano for this price. Action feels very nice. Very nice for first year or two of piano learning. Maybe even more. The feel is comparable to higher end models.

Cons:
There is a slight constant hiss in the headphones. It is noticable. But not noticable on speakers.
The built in speakers are not the best. they lack a bit of clarity. But you cant expect high end sound in this price range.
The sustain pedal is too light and in goes all over the floor. I strongly suggest buying heavier, proper pedal.

Overall:
Very good digital piano to start with and have a lot of fun.

Worth it
Berbremm, 02.04.2018
I bought this piano for home practice.

Pros: The keys are good, although the sounds are not the best possible. But considering the price it's ok. Lightweight and easy to carry.
Cons: It's confusing to configure reverb, layer and the others functions.

A good deal for this price
Andrei B., 13.02.2017
I bought this for a rehearsal room at our church.

PRO: The piano sound is okay and the keys action is good for the price range.
Lightweight, easy to manipulate.
Although it's made of plastic, it's quite solid and materials are okay.

CONS: Almost all function buttons have been replaced with a FUNCTION + key combination which makes it difficult to use and you always have to refer back to the user guide should you want to use layer, split, transpose, velocity level adjustment etc.

yamaha still tops!
Denis9150, 13.08.2015
I purchased this digital piano with this in purpose..to relearn all of my old traits from boyhood as a music student.
This is a great piece of kit and not as such for beginners but all through the range of players today. It is the basic P range model but it does its job very well and at a very good price, and the 3 year warranty sets it on top so to speak.
Functions are limited as one would expect at entry level but are more than adequate for all users and the" entertainer" within is well produced.
well done Yamaha.
