The main features of the P1 are listed down the page
Classenti P1 Features
Digitally sampled in Japan.
88 Full Size, Fully Weighted Piano Keys
Represents the full 7¼ octave range of an upright or grand piano. The keys are exactly the same size as a real piano.
Touch Sensitive Keys
The harder (or faster) you strike the key, the louder it sounds. Gives added expression to your music.
Touch Sensitivity Levels: 4. This allows you to play each note at 4 different volume levels (p, mp, mf, f).
Graded Hammer Action Keyboard
With heavier key weighting in the bass, getting progressively lighter as you go up the keyboard. This mimics the exact feel of an upright or grand piano.
8 Instrumental Voices (In addition, each voice can be combined with another. This creates a total of 15 different sounds)
Piano 1, Piano 2 (Brighter sound. Good for jazz), Electric Piano 1, Electric Piano 2, Harpsichord, Organ, Strings and Vibraphone.
4 x 5 watts - that’s 20 watts stereo amplification!
Record and Play Back
This feature allows you to record your own music. All you need to do is press the ‘record’ button and start playing. When you’ve finished playing, press the ‘play’ button and it will play back your song. The recording feature is also compatible with PC music file formats. In other words, you can record yourself in a file format that can then be transferred to other media (CDs, MP3 etc.)
No need to buy one, it's built-in. Essential for learning how to play in time. You can adjust the speed to suit the music you are playing.
The Classenti P1 has a built-in transformer which allows you to use the piano in any Country. It automatically adjusts to your Country's voltage!
AC mains adaptor with UK plug included.
1 Pedal: Real piano type sustain pedal in silver
Sustain pedal. On upright pianos it's sometimes referred to as a ‘damper pedal’. This pedal allows you to sustain any note, or notes, without having to hold the key down.
Note: If you need 3 pedals then you can connect a universal 3-pedal unit. This unit connects to the pedal socket at the back of the piano. Currently we don't sell a 3-pedal unit.Key Weight Control
Prefer a heavier or lighter touch? No problem, just use the key weight control button to select from three settings: Standard, heavy and light. The piano’s default setting is standard. The keys remain touch sensitive on all settings.
Cabinet (Keyboard section)
Slim line, sleek, stylish, curved edge design. Satin black finish. Black control panel. Can easily be stored away.
Wooden Stand (Available as an extra)
The wooden stand is an extra and isn't included in the price. With just 4 hand-tight screws connecting the keyboard section with the legs, the P1 can be put together or taken apart, on your own, in less than a minute!
You might want the wooden stand because it:
Folding Music Desk
The music desk is on two hinges. It folds down if you need to store or transport your piano. And it can be easily removed.
Japanese engineers created the Classenti sound by combining a multitude of tones from the world's finest concert grand pianos. These engineers didn't just take the sound from one grand piano they took the richest, most vibrant ones; enhanced them, then came up with a digitally sampled version that's quite unique. I don't know how they did this, but the result is a clean, piano sound that's incredibly realistic.
The sound of the P1 is a little on the bright side (like most Japanese pianos!) This is mainly to do with the size, power output and position of the speakers. Larger, more powerful speakers would certainly add more warmth to the sound. If you want a richer sound then check out the Classenti CDP1
2 x Headphone jacks to connect headphones. Two players can play with headphones at the same time. Located on the left side underneath the keyboard section.
64 Note Polyphony
This allows you to play up to 64 notes simultaneously (I know you only have 10 fingers, but this includes notes held down by the pedal and combinations of sounds).
You can connect to your computer and other MIDI compatible hardware. Allows interaction with piano tuition PC software, and music notation software such as Sibelius, Finale, NotationComposer, MagicScore, MusicTime, QuickScore and many more. If you're into composing them the MIDI In/Out is a must.
AUX In (also known as 'Line in' or 'audio in')
The Aux-in (or auxiliary-in) allows you to connect external music sources (with RCA outputs) such as your PDA or MP3 player.
AUX Out (also known as 'Line out' or 'audio out')
If you want to give a live performance, connect your Classenti piano to your hi-fi system through the AUX-out (or auxiliary-out).
Change your piano’s pitch to play along with other instruments such as trumpet, clarinet, etc. Or make some musical pieces more comfortable for singers.
This produces a slight echo on each note to mimic the sound a grand piano makes in a concert hall.
Dual Voice With Layer Balance
Choose any two sounds and merge them together. A very nice combination is piano combined with strings.
Master Volume Switch
You can turn the sound right down for late night playing, or up to its maximum for loud performances.
You can turn your piano on or off without having to reach for the mains socket.
What Else Is In The Box?

Black satin will look particularly good in your home when accompanied with dark wood furniture. Black is the most versatile (and safest choice) out of all wood colours. And it blends in well with most shades of brown or grey.Piano Dimensions WITHOUT Wooden Stand
Length: 127cm (50 inches), Height: 11.5cm (4.5
inches), Depth: 34cm (13.5 inches)
Piano Dimensions WITH Wooden Stand

Depth: 34cm (13.5 inches)
Assembly Of Wooden Stand

Storing The Piano Away
The Classenti P1 can be put together or taken apart in less than 1 minute. Just undo the 4
hand screws, and the keyboard section comes away from its base.
The Classenti P1 comes with a 5 year
'at-your-home', parts and labour warranty.

Main Advantages Of The CDP1 (Next Model Up In The Range) Over The P1
Disadvantages of P1
The base (wooden stand) is lightweight (only 5 kg), which means it's not as sturdy as digital pianos with backboards.
The keyboard section is, on average, 5 kg heavier than most stage pianos under £1,000. This is because of the hammer action. Classenti chose to put a proper hammer action keyboard in their stage piano rather than a lighter, cut down version.

As a non-piano player, what is the difference between the signle foot pedal on the Classenti and the three pedals that are on the Yamaha?

The Classent P1 wooden stand is a separate unit
You can move the piano and stand as one, or unscrew
A single (sustain) pedal is all you need as a beginner...
The P1 will be available from the 1st or 2nd week of

Thank you for your quick response in regards the faulty power supply for the Classenti P1 piano.I have tried it in the piano and all seems ok.
Thanks again for your response
Question/ Hi Graham
I am strongly considering the Classenti P1 but have to say the CDP1 has also caught my eye.
I am mainly interested in a piano that I can use both at home and possibly take to other places and maybe play gigs etc - is the CDP1 simple to take apart and assemble to achieve this aim? I know the P1 is a Portable Piano, whereas CDP1 is not necessarily labelled so, but can it be portable too? The reason it has also caught my eye is because a) it looks great and b) it has three pedals. I do think I would use the stand whether I bought the P1 or CDP1, so I'm in two minds really. Is the CDP1 really hard to take apart/assemble and take in the car? Also, is there much difference in the sound?
Thanks very much for the advice, Matthew

The CDP1 has a slightly better sound than the P1.
Question/ Would you say the classenti p1 is the best, as I was confused as it said it is a stage piano and I think I read that with these the sound isn't as loud and that you need an amp?
Would you say it is the best when compared to other pianos as well?
Also could I have it delivered to the Enfield store for me to pick up instead of sending it to my house?

The P1 is certainly the best portable-type piano
You are welcome to pick it up from our Enfield store.
I am looking into possibly getting the Classenti P1 for my tiny apartment.
I love playing the piano and have been without one for over a year now, I have decided that enough is enough.
My flat is small and I as I am renting, the possibility of moving is always upon me so the portable nature of the P1 seems suitable.
I wondered what your thoughts were for the P1. Is it good for the pressure of the keys to a real piano. From looking at reviews it seems the sound quality is very good, would you agree?
Also, as I live with someone else in my flat and have close neighbours, could I plug headphones into the P1?
I also notice you only have the 1 pedal on this compared to a digital pianos 3 pedals. Do you find this is a problem for staccato pieces or can you always acquire a second pedal later on.
Based on my situation do you think I should perhaps look at alternative digital pianos or do you think that the Classenti P1 can provide everything I need instead?

Q/ "Why is the action on the Classenti digital piano so realistic?"
A/ After years of research and development, Classenti has patented a new piano action mechanism called “Real Hammer Action Mechanic With Adjustable Action Point”.
In plain English, this really means: The moving parts that are connected to the piano key have been designed to feel exactly like a real piano.Q/ "I have been thinking about the classenti but would be nervous about buying without trying it first. Do you know of any stockists in Dublin Ireland by any chance?"
A/ There aren't any stockists of Classenti digital pianos in Ireland.
Classenti digital pianos can only be purchased online. Classenti offer a '60 day money back if you're not satisfied' guarantee. This way you can try the piano out in your home without commitment.
Value for money
Parts such as the soundboard and sound chip are produced in France and Japan respectively. The sound was digitally sampled in Japan. The most important parts of the mechanism are made in Germany.
