Hi,

I recently purchased a Yamaha-P125 and it's been great so far! The only issue I've noticed is that when I hold a key down and then play another key close it it, there's a strange high pitched, almost whisling, effect. Is this just from their sample of a grand piano or do you think it's a defect with the keyboard?

EDIT: I wonder if this is what I'm experiencing and it's just the simulation of a grand? https://www.reddit.com/r/piano/comm...d_is_developing_weird_aftertone/ej4buco/

Hello, Greymagic27, and welcome to Piano World!

I'm probably not the best person to respond to your thread, but several years ago I had a similar experience with a brand new Yamaha P90 digital stage piano I purchased. The difference was, I could play just a single note in the upper treble, and hear the awful ringing/whistling noise, although I heard the odd nuance on several of the upper treble notes. It (the odd ringing overtones) was very obvious and very annoying. The P90 did not have internal speakers, so I had to use a keyboard amp. I thought it was the amp, and took the amp back to the store (because I bought it locally at a music store) and exchanged it for a different keyboard amp. Nothing changed, and I still heard the same odd ringing overtones.

I contacted Yamaha customer service, who connected me to the warranty service department. I explained to them what I was hearing, and they said they would get back to me. A few days later, they emailed me back, and said there was nothing wrong with the P90, but my hearing was the problem, although they never examined my P90. I also read online that other people were complaining about the odd ringing overtones on the Yamaha P90, so it was not just me.

Needless to say, I was very disappointed. The online seller I bought the P90 from said I would have to deal with Yamaha warranty service, because there were no refunds or exchanges, so I sold the P90 on ebay at a loss, and bought a Casio Privia 310, and, it sounded great in all registers, all notes, and no odd ringing, and I enjoy it to this day.

I'm sorry to say but it was a bad experience for me, and though I love Yamaha acoustic pianos, I'll never buy another Yamaha digital piano.

Not sure this has helped you any, but if you call Yamaha warranty service, they will likely tell you it is not the P125 but your hearing that is the problem.

Good luck!

Rick

I listened to your audio file, although I had to download it a couple of times, and I did hear the ringing overtone. It was actually similar to the ringing overtones I heard on the P90. So, the issue is likely embedded into the samples of your P-125. But I'm no expert.

Good luck!

Rick

Thanks for the quick reply!

I had the same thought about it being part of the GP sample as it doesn't happen on any of the E pianos.

I've cross posted it onto the digital piano forum but if it's part of the samples there's not much I can do! It's not a major issue either way but I just wanted to know what's going on.

Is there a setting to adjust the sympathetic vibration? This occurs on an acoustic piano as the upper most keys are not dampened and will ring slightly when a corresponding lower note is played.

I've had a look but I can't see anything in the manual for it. I'm thinking it's just the sample they took
