Introducing the Yamaha CP88 Digital Stage Piano, the ultimate synthesizer that combines tradition and innovation to take your performance to the next level. Designed with portability in mind, the CP88 offers world-class sounds and cutting-edge technology without compromising on the quality of the instrument.
CP Digital Piano Series
The CP Digital Piano Series is the result of decades of research and development by Yamaha. Known for their outstanding craftsmanship, Yamaha has launched an all-new range of revolutionary stage pianos that feature incredible digital features while maintaining the touch and feel of an acoustic grand piano. The CP88 is an ideal choice for piano purists who want to play with the fullest expression.
Optimized for the Stage
The CP88 is fully equipped with a perfect set of connectors, making it tailor-made for stage applications. In addition to standard 6.3mm (1/4 inch) jack outputs, the CP88 also features balanced XLR outputs for directly connecting to mixing desks or stage boxes. A stereo input via two 6.3mm jacks enables connection to additional sound sources like smartphones or another keyboard.
Natural Wood Grand Hammer Action
Featuring a finely tuned keyboard suitable for every performance, on any platform. The individual keys are carefully made with a springless design for the most consistent feel. The lower register keys have more resistance that gradually becomes lighter, providing the natural touch and likeness of an acoustic piano. Thanks to the sensor sound receptors, the piano has the capacity to register the subtle nuances of your performance and relay them accurately to show your individual style.
Virtual Circuitry Modelling (VCM)
With the all-new Virtual Circuitry Modelling (VCM) technology, the CP88 has the capacity to re-create the sound and behavior of vintage effects and high-end studio signal processors. The piano can model the circuits down to the original analog component level, providing incredibly authentic sounds for you to explore.
