Overview

The CP4 is simply the best stage piano Yamaha has ever made. The CP4 Stage features sounds from Yamaha's Premium Collection of hand crafted grand pianos including the CFX, CFIIIs and the S6. Vintage electric pianos complete with Virtual Circuit Modeling stomp box effects and a variety of Bass, Clav, Organ, Strings and Pad sounds from their flagship Motif round out the sound set so you're ready for any musical situation. Yamaha's Natural Wood Graded Hammer keyboard with Synthetic Ivory Keytops (with real-wood white keys) gives you the perfect piano touch and response. The CP4 Stage's slim, lightweight design (38lb.) combines portability with elegant style. Most importantly, an easy to understand interface with large lighted buttons for splits and layers gives you all the controls you need right at your fingertips and the easy to read, ultra-bright fluorescent display make the CP easy to use even on the darkest stage.

Premium GP
"Premium GP" features the authentic sound of Yamaha Premium Grand Pianos. As the largest acoustic piano manufacturer in the world we were able to hand select from our vast collection of hand-crafted grand pianos to create the sounds heard in the CP4 STAGE.

[CFX] [CFIIIS] The Evolution of Excellence
The new flagship of the CF Series, the CFX full concert grand piano represents the pinnacle of Yamaha's tradition of piano crafting. Beautifully made and with an exquisite tone that extends across the entire dynamic range, the CFX has the power to project its sound to the furthest reaches of any concert hall.

The CFIIIS is another superb full concert grand piano hand-crafted by Yamaha, with a full, bright sound and resonant, authoritative bass that make it perfectly suited to ensemble performance.

[S6] A Warmer More Delicate Sound
The S6 offers a lush tonal presence with a warm, subtle depth to its sound. Featuring select bridge materials and new refinements in the specifications of its copper-wound springs, the S6 delivers a rich, resonant tone with a perfectly pitched, harmonious bass, making it the idea piano for accompanying vocals or quiet ballads.

Vintage EP
The CP STAGE features an impressive selection of vintage electric pianos from different eras, enhanced by Yamaha's renowned Virtual Circuitry Modeling technology, which allows the reproduction of the classic stomp box effects that were such an integral part of their sound.

[CP80] The Electric Grand
Striking its strings with an authentic grand piano action and using pickups to convert their vibration into an electrical signal, the CP80 is an electric grand piano in the truest sense. The moment this instrument burst onto the scene it won immediate acclaim for its pronounced attack and unique harmonic overtones.

[DX7] The Historic DX Electric Piano
Operating on the principle of FM tone generation, the Yamaha DX Series debuted at the beginning of the eighties as the world's first digital synthesizers. The impressive variety of sounds that the DX made available left musicians around the world in awe, particularly the electric pianos, which quickly found a home in many different musical scenes.

[Rd I] [Rd II] Synonymous with the Electric Piano
Yamaha's Rd I and Rd II offer the timeless electric piano sound that helped define the music of so many artists in the seventies. The Rd I reproduces the tone achieved using tines and hammers, while the Rd II reflects the remarkable progress in musical instrument technology that occurred in the latter half of the decade. From the mellow modulation of a quiet ballad or jazz standard to the percussive attacking sound heard in countless rock classics, the warm resonance of the Rd I and the clarity and power of the Rd II will take you back to this inspiring musical era the moment you begin to play.

[Wr] A Pioneering Electric Piano
Perfectly emulating the distinctive hammer-and-resonator sound of another star of the sixties and seventies, the Wr voices in the CP STAGE offer everything from the thick, powerful tone of earlier models of these renowned electric pianos to the brighter clarity that later efforts achieved. These voices accurately reproduce the playing characteristics of the original instruments, so that a light touch will give a delicate tone, while playing with more force will result in a thicker, uniquely distorted sound.

Ease-of-Use
A simple and intuitive interface gives you instant access to all the controls that you need.

Change Voices
Voice Category buttons lets you call up the sounds you need quickly and easily-you can even store your favorite sounds for each category. In addition to all the great piano voices, a variety of bass, clavinet, organ, strings, and pad sounds based on the sounds in our flagship MOTIF synthesizer round out the voice library, so you're ready for any musical situation.

Layer & Split
One touch is all it takes to layer and split sounds.
The large lighted buttons make it easy to split and layer sounds even on the darkest stages, allowing you to switch from a full piano, to a piano voice layered with strings, or piano with a split bass sound. The Main Solo function lets you go back to playing piano across the entire keyboard the touch of a button.

Wooden Keys
Yamaha's NW (natural wood) keyboard gives you the perfect piano touch and response

The CP4 STAGE features wooden keys with synthetic ivory keytops and a Graded Hammer action similar to that of a grand piano (the keys in the lower register are heavier and the keys in the upper register are lighter).

Yamaha's innovative GH3 keyboard has three sensors: in addition to two sensors to detect keystroke strength, it includes Yamaha's original Damper Sensor. This enables you to use advanced techniques such as playing the same note repeatedly with perfect articulation, previously only possible on a grand piano, which blends sounds without the use of the damper pedal. You also enjoy the keyboard touch of a grand piano, including keys with weight gradations - heavy in the lower end and lighter in the higher end. The NW (Natural Wood) keyboard, with the same structure as the GH3 keyboard, and synthetic ivory keytops also provide the feel of a grand piano, even the fingertip sensations.

Portable
The CP STAGE combines portability with elegant style in a professional package.

Features
  • 45 Premium Grand pianos including the CFX, CFIII and the S6
  • 47 Vintage electric pianos (tine, reed, DX and original CP80)
  • 341 Voices including Basses, Strings, Pads and more based on Yamaha's flagship Motif

I recently purchased the CP4 from Guitar Center and been playing it in my studio and with my band. I'm VERY happy with the purchase. I am a professional musician who plays out regularly. I have multiple keyboards and my main stage piano has been the CP300 for many years. I love that keyboard but have grown tired of lifting it and wanted a lighter 88 key option. I've played on Nord's (own an electro), Kurzweil's, Korg's, and Roland's (own a Juno). Nord and Kurzweil sound beautiful but have "springy" keyboard action and I can't get as expressive on them as I do with Yamaha CPs. I also prefer the brighter Yamaha acoustic samples especially playing in my rock band. The new CP4 wooden keys feel and respond GREAT and the new CFX samples are excellent.

There are mixed reviews on the CP4 Stage Piano. Not surprising because there is no perfect keyboard (or we would all be using it). I still love my CP300 but I have to say Yamaha did a great job on CP4 and I would highly recommend it. I have always tweaked the factory piano sounds on my keyboards. I found the factory CFX setting had Hall reverb and was too much. I changed that along with key click and even the damper pedal resonance and found a CFX sound that I really love. It is easy to set up your own performance files and save the sounds you use frequently. I found the electric piano and organ sounds to be better than the CP300 - the Rhodes sounds are incredible. It is a plastic housing but it is quite thick and I think it will last if you buy a good case.

My negatives: (1) Yes . . . I wish they had some string resonance options. (2) Wish Yamaha would make a bigger screen on their stage pianos. (3) They put the head phone jack on the back next to the other ¼ inch outputs. The CP300 has it on the front left. You need a longer cable that will loop UNDER the keyboard in order to use headphones otherwise the cable goes over the keys - bad design. None of these are show stoppers for me.

I bought the CP4 for with high expectations that it would far exceed the sound and action of my aging CP33 road warrior. Unfortunately, I am disappointed: 1. The CP33 is much better built. 2. The sound is not as good as the CP4 but close and thats what bothers me. 3. Why no sting resonance in the CP4 is a mystery. Some say it sounds flat or dead without it. Im starting to see that. 4. The action in the CP4 is very good but all they did is shove thick popsicle sticks inside the the plastic GH action and extra an extra sensor. Nothing major there. 5. The CP4 is very nice for $1,500. $2,100 is almost embarrassing. Conclusion: If you like Yamaha ,be sure to look at the CP40 first, as well as Casio, Kawai, Korg, Kurzweil, and Roland. It might make more sense especially if your budget was already for $2200 - you will save a bundle and exceed the CP4 in many ways. Too late to return mine but not a bad DP to be stuck with. I guess it's buyer beware when buying into the hype. The best thing about this stage piano is the marketing.

    Comments about Yamaha CP4 STAGE 88-Key Wooden Key Stage Piano:

    I purchased this unit mainly because of the action. I also have a Roland supernatural piano and it sounds wonderful, but for me the action, the key dip, is too severe for my touch. The Yamaha action is, for me, better. I realize that touch is subjective and many players will prefer the RD over the Yamaha.... heck, Billy Noels keyboard tech bought several of the RD's for their road shows so you know it's good gear. The Yamaha piano sound cuts more when playing with a band, while the Roland is darker and warmer sounding. I've only played one gig so far with it but I'm very pleased so far. Havent even gotten into the editing features yet, but it's extremely easy to split and layer on this board when playing live shows. Very intuitive!

        CP$ Great Stage Piano for "Professionals"

        By Dale

        from Brookline, MA

        Comments about Yamaha CP4 STAGE 88-Key Wooden Key Stage Piano:

        Funny how some complain about this incredible stage piano. I am telling you as a profession musician and teacher that the CP4 is one of the BEST dynamic sounding digital pianos on the market. Im not even going to talk about the suburb action or the super light weight - only because it's all about the sound that counts. The CP4 absolutely delivers on acoustic and electric piano. What makes it so professional is the ability to edit these sounds to near perfection if you spend some time with it. Did I mention the quality and build is fantastic. When you are done with hype of Roland, Nord, and Kurz or fall for the poor quality of Kawai, Yamaha CP4 will be there waiting for you. Im not saying that the CP4 is the best stage piano for everyone, it's just the best stage piano for what it is supposed to do. Thats what professional is all about.

        Not The Best Yamaha Stage Piano

        By Anthony

        from las vegas, nevada

        Comments about Yamaha CP4 STAGE 88-Key Wooden Key Stage Piano:

        I am a professional pianist/keyboard player and have played the Cp4 for 2 hours in the store and came away very disappointed in comparison to the Yamaha cp1 and cp5 that were in the store at the same time. The Cp4 key bed is slow and wears your hand out in fast playing for any length of time where as the key bed in Cp 1/5 is fast and more authentic. The Cp4 piano sounds are less quality in every way than the Cp1/5. I tried the Roland RD 800 and is a better key bed and piano sounds along with the ability to do more for less money than cp 4.

        Only 3 pianos NOT 45.

        from Callaway, FL

        Comments about Yamaha CP4 STAGE 88-Key Wooden Key Stage Piano:

        Nice stage piano, but when i got it all it has is 3 acoustic pianos with 15 EQ version of each. What the heck?! Sounds pretty good. Hardly nothing new we haven't already heard from Yamaha. CSX is ok but odd compression in overall sound. Plenty of loopin as usual for Yamaha. Action is as good as any high end stage piano. Guitar Center was great with return. Ordered the Roland RD-800. Should have just bought that in the first place but was trying to save some money. Big mistake. Yamaha need to put more into the product rather than marketing hype.

        What the heck happened to Yamaha????

        By Bob Tito

        from Sad, state

        Comments about Yamaha CP4 STAGE 88-Key Wooden Key Stage Piano:

        What happened to the the beautiful CP series. I sold my CP5 in preparation to order the CP4. What a huge mistake. The CP4 feels like a plastic toy piano and doesn't sound as good as my CP5. What have I done. Anyway, the CP4 does have nice action on the keys. The pianos are about the same as CP5 but just does not feel like a quality instrument. I was really expecting the best digital piano Yamaha claims it to be. How did they get away with saying that. Just because the added the mediocre CSX sound and dropped weight does not make this the best piano they ever made. Did they forget that they still make the CP1. Please Yamaha, go back to the drawing board and lets pretend the CP4 and CP40 never happened. You are one the best makers of so many wonderful instruments. Don't start dropping quality and spin it it with marketing. Please, you are so much better than that. I am returning the CP4 in a few days and hope I can find an alternative. So disappointed.

        Have tried them all, for a Digital, this come the closest to the Acustic Piano. This Keyboards user Manual is not user friendly but also has few others online plus come w/ a DVD. I bought this mainly for my Daughter to learn and play Piano not get a Work Station w/ Sequencer, at least not yet!...LOL Quality is not were it used to be back in the day. I see where they cut back with their material. Conclusion? I'm pleased for what it cost. I still plan to get a Real Grand in my home soon. Plus it will add as a piece of Furniture:)
