Soft Fall Fallboard – New for The P22!
The Yamaha P22 D is the first piano from Yamaha to feature a soft fall fallboard.
This Yankee Style fallboard tucks into the piano when closed and has a controlled rate of speed when it is closing to ensure no crushed fingers!
5 large back posts for a solid foundation
The P22 D is the first piano from Yamaha to feature a wider and thicker back post.
The back post is part of the pianos foundation and helps keep a piano in tune and adds resonance.
This larger back post is featured on the Yamaha P22 D and every model above!
Also note the sound board with the notched ribs. This is the “speaker” of the piano and is what amplifies the sound when one strikes a key.
A New Music Rack!
One of the many reasons the P22 is loved by Chorus directors and musicians alike is that it has a large music rack and you can see above the piano while playing to direct or interact with other musicians and students.
Yamaha has redesigned the P22’s music rack to span the entire length of the piano and can hold multiple pages of music at once!
This music rack is great for making notes on your sheet music.
The top lid does not extrude over the top of the piano, allowing sheet music and music books to go beyond the height and not push the music forward like other pianos.
Under Felted Hammer – The P Special!
The P22 is the First acoustic upright from Yamaha that has an under felted hammer.
The orange felt between the wooden core and the white speaking felt gives the instrument a deeper sound and helps maintain the tone as the hammer ages.
This is a feature that is common on better pianos.
A Piano made to Roll!
The p22 features 4 double vinyl wheel caster! This makes moving the piano a breeze.
The P22 also features a piano toe block base to give the instrument better stability and a traditional look.
The P22 is the only upright piano that offers this non marking wheel.
