A versatile instrument with natural sound and a great keyboard for the price
Svil, 25.11.2019
The Yamaha P-125 is my first digital piano, which I bought mainly for using at home. In this regard, its overall build quality was not so important for me, although other people might prefer a more solid instrument with less plastic (which however would probably make it more expensive, heavier and not very portable). I wanted a standalone piano for composing, but also for using as a midi keyboard with my DAW when necessary and I am very satisfied with its quality and performance.

I’ve played acoustic piano before, so I wanted something with 88 weighted keys resembling the feel of a real piano as closely as possible at an affordable price. Indeed, the Graded Hammer Standard Keyboard of the P-125 did not disappoint at all – it is very expressive. I cannot compare with key actions from other brands in this price range since I have not tried them, but to me this keyboard is really impressive. The touch sensitive keys are very responsive and although felt a bit heavier at the beginning, I quickly got used to them.

In terms of sound, my favourite is of course the main grand piano, which I use mostly and which in my view sounds quite realistic through the great integrated speakers on this instrument (or my headphones). The additional sounds (electric pianos, organs, strings, bass, etc.) are also useful depending on your purposes.

The two-track recording option allows me to quickly sketch ideas, which I can develop later. I have not yet tried using the “Smart Pianist” app, which is intended to further expand options. By the way, I would have preferred to have Bluetooth as well for more versatile connections. But the connection to my laptop through USB was relatively easy and the drivers were automatically installed. So now using the piano also as a midi keyboard opens new possibilities through various VSTs.

Overall, a great and versatile instrument for the price, with a pleasant, rich and natural piano sound and an amazing keyboard.

Feels and sounds wonderful
emcgon, 03.10.2018
My first stage piano was a Yamaha P105. It is a fine instrument, but there were a few things I didn't love. I felt the piano sound was just a little disappointing. I also didn't like that when I took the output from the 1/4" socket, the built-in speakers were muted (so I couldn't use them for monitoring). The built-in speakers were a little anaemic anyway. I was just about to trade up to a P115 when this came out.

The P125 addresses all of these shortcomings and much more. The piano sound is noticeable richer. It adds a whole lot of other sounds, most of which are themselves excellent. The keybed is the same as the P105 and the P115, but that's no bad thing - it feels great. The keys are perhaps a little heavier than other pianos I have played, but not uncomfortably so. The built-in speakers are clear and powerful enough for solo playing or playing with a small group. And although there are a minimal number of controls (buttons and LEDs), the way they are used to access features like transpose are well thought out. A discrete display showing the current settings would have been nice, but there isn't one.

It is not an instrument that is likely to stand up to too many hard knocks, I think: gigging musicians might want to look elsewhere unless they are prepared to treat it with a bit of care. It is mostly plastic. Mine had a fall which caused all of the keys on the lowest octave to become dislodged. Thankfully, nothing actually broke and I managed to reassemble it (there are more than 70 screws holding it all together !) but I think I was lucky...it could easily have been different.

Apart from my concerns about its ruggedness, it feels great and sounds great and I'm very happy with the upgrade from the P105.

Thrilled with my new piano
PaulMowbs, 16.07.2020
When the UK went into lockdown, I dug out an old keyboard from storage hoping to start learning to play. Its limitations soon became apparent, so I decided to look for something economic, but which had more of a piano look, feel and sound. After a bit of research, I found that Thomann had exactly what I was looking for in the P-125; it was in stock, and was competitively priced in comparison to UK dealers. Delivery took only a few days, which was great considering it came over from Germany.

While there are competitive products from other manufacturers, as a beginner, I love my Yamaha. I think it sounds great, it’s not too bulky, and it has all the connectivity I need. I was particularly pleased that the usb connection is not just for data, but will also play an audio signal through the piano’s speakers - not something I had considered before buying it.

While I hope to continue to use my piano for some years to come, when I do finally decide to upgrade, I will definitely come back to see what Thomann has to offer.

Great Stage Piano
Yannis87, 27.11.2020
All in all I believe this is the best stage piano at it's price. I have tried different stage pianos but the feel and the sound in the Yamaha is extraordinary. Pair it with your mobile through the Yamaha App and you have absolute control on tuning, instruments, reverbs etc. You can even change every individual key. Totally worth. Highly recommended.

I am using it for local gigs. Totally satisfied! The sound cuts through nicely. The keys are very comfortable, the feel is pretty closed to a real piano. The price is unbitten!

Great buy
Joel T, 15.04.2020
If you are looking to purchase a first digital piano and are unsure, I'd highly recommend this model. I've surveyed the market for 4 months for the best keyboards with great features and an affordable price range, this just stood out. I've made the instant decision to purchase this and haven't regretted a bit. The sound quality is amazing, crisp and very effective on touch, sustain. The interface is pretty basic but has a great functionality to use the app to use these functions, digitally. Overall very impressed with it's built, quality, sound, speakers, sustain impact and tones. I have it set up on a Cross stand but a bench with pedals would be ideal.

Highly Recommend and Best Customer Service
AntoWhite, 11.05.2020
This piano is absolutely fantastic! Weighted keys are slightly heavier (I think) than certain pianos I played before which is great! The keys are so smooth and polished! Ideal with the backboard and so convenient you can put it away and bring it with you. It is big but not as heavy as you would think. I would highly recommend buying this digital piano for anyone that would like to use it to learn or play piano!

Only negative aspect is that I did not get a cover with it to prevent it from becoming non-smooth but that is down to myself, not Thomann. I use it learn piano and has encouraged me more to play and practise as I had a cheap keyboard beforehand but this is powerful and great sound from it with its sustain pedal also!
