Bringing home the Yamaha Arius YDP-141, my NO. 1 ranked digital (Video)

Over a year ago I surveyed digital pianos at Guitar Center and Best Buy, and drooled over Yamaha Arius. It was hands down my favorite electronic of the lot.

So why was I investing in a plug-in, when I had three acoustics jammed into my living room? Main reason: I’m moving to the Bay area imminently and need a transportable “piano” to play gigs about town.

My first one coming up benefits the Gooden College Connection on Friday, Oct. 5th at 7 p.m.. NO ACOUSTIC available. They’ll pack Arius into a van and bring it to the Albany Community Center. (The top part rolls off easily) And what remains is the pedal frame and support.

If I need volume, I have lots to spare though I prefer to set it a tad above 3/4 capacity.. depends of course, on the space and its reverb quotient.

Here’s a sound sample taken in my piano piano room. Excuse the pile-up of odds and ends due to the move prep.

The Arius cost me $1058.14 out the door including tax. And I’m told that Guitar Center’s Labor Day sale has been extended.

Highly recommend. Go for it! Any G.C. around country should give you the sale price. Tell ’em I said so.
