I had the opportunity to test out the Yamaha P105WH about 6 months ago when my sister got my nephew one for his birthday. She asked me what I thought about this model but I couldn’t give her any advice because I haven’t tested it before. My 12 year old nephew insisted he wanted this particular model because he saw it over at some friends house, and you know how kids are. So my sister went on and got the Yamaha P105WH although I advised her towards other models, that I had the opportunity to test before. The package shipped in 2 days, which was very convenient.
It seemed a bit oversized at first, but once we got it out of the box and plugged it in, we forgot all about it. The sound is true to Yamaha‘s reputation. Although you can’t turn the volume extremely loud, it’s a great musical instrument for somebody starting out or even of an average experience in playing the piano. You can opt for the stand and the pedal unit if you want or you can get it without. My sister chose these accessories as well and I can’t say they’re of a low quality.
It has a clean, minimalist design that will not disturb you from the main idea, and that is playing it. The 2 headphone jacks are intelligently put in the front. It saves you the effort of connecting your headphones in the back. And the fact that it has 2 jacks enables a teacher and a student to go on with the piano lessons without disturbing the rest of the household.
The only thing I noticed that I thought would have needed more tuning is the feel of the keys and namely their movement. I found it to be a bit springy towards the upper movement when compared to acoustic piano. But, being so hard to notice it will not affect you, and many other digital pianos have the same feel. It’s somewhat of a common trait of more models. All in all the Yamaha P105WH is a nice musical instrument and a perfect one for beginners and intermediate pianists. I can say that, considering the value for money, it’s between the best digital pianos around at the moment.
