      Yamaha CP33 88-Key Stage Piano (707439)

Was $999.99

Powerful features for playing live at a sweet price!

The Yamaha CP33 Stage Piano is a fantastic instrument, especially for its modest price. It boasts 88 weighted keys with graded hammer-effect, 28 voices including 3-layer piano samples, sustain half-pedaling, and two effects processors. It has MIDI in/out and USB for computer connectivity, and 64-voice polyphony.

Made to be played
The authentic piano voices and rich expressiveness of the Yamaha CP series keyboards come alive at your touch, and the sound is big enough to blast through a full band onstage—yet nuanced enough to work magic in an intimate club.

Expressive power
Yamaha's extensive experience in crafting fine acoustic pianos was key in creating the ultimate digital pianos. Yamaha's advanced Graded Hammer Effect (GHE) action gives all keys an authentic resistance that increases from the top register to the lower—just as on an actual acoustic piano. Which means that you can naturally pound out thunderous low notes with your left hand and let the fingers on your right dance and fly with the high notes. This 88-key keyboard practically plays itself, working with you—not against you—and brings out the very best in your performance.

Sound choice
Crafting the authentic sound of the Yamaha CP-33 keyboard involved extraordinary attention to detail. Yamaha used meticulously recorded stereo samples of top-quality instruments, taken at various playing strengths, and included subtle elements such as Stereo Sustain (open strings while pedaling), and even Key-Off Samples (recordings of felt dampers coming to rest on vibrating piano strings)—providing the most authentic-sounding and finely nuanced acoustic piano voices possible. There's also a wide variety of other dynamic sounds, including vintage electric piano, organ, guitar, strings, and much more.

Stay in control
As master keyboard controllers, the CP-33 stage piano lets you take command of your gear. Play and control external synthesizers and tone generators (such as the MOTIF-RACK ES) during your performance. Assign different internal voices to different sections of the keyboard or even create complex, multi-textured layers of sound. There are 2 instrument Zones on the Yamaha CP-33 keyboard, with dedicated Zone sliders on the panel that let you easily tweak the level of each instrument as you play. You can also freely reassign the sliders and wheels to control other sonic characteristics of the connected gear as desired, such as sound attack, decay, brightness, and filter cutoff.

Take center stage
Step out front and make your presence known. The CP-33 piano keyboard has a special Mono Piano sound, complete with a compression effect, designed specifically for live performance. It has the punch and power to stand out, even in full band situations.

Lock it up
Onstage, you need to make sure everything goes smoothly. Sometimes an errant hand (yours or someone else's) can touch the panel controls and change your special settings, giving you a rude surprise in the middle of your performance. The Panel Lock button lets you prevent that, keeping all settings fixed and secure, until you're ready to change them yourself.

A light and compact piano keyboard
Despite its full 88-key keyboard, realistic grand piano sound and extensive features, the Yamaha CP-33 is exceptionally compact, light, and portable. It goes wherever you go, sets up anywhere you need, and gives you complete piano performance everywhere you play.

Pedal to the metal
The Yamaha CP keyboards give you the same pedal control as an actual grand piano. The CP-33 has Sustain Pedal and AUX jacks (which can be configured as Soft or Sostenuto, or even Expression). On certain piano sounds, Sustain can be partially applied—reproducing the "half-damper" effect of slightly muting the resonating strings on a real piano.

  • Solid Digital Piano

    As reviewed by Somebodytookit on 2/4/2008

    The Good: The keyboard is solidly built using metal casing versus plastic that easily cracks, but still light enough to heft without hurting something. There are no built in speakers, cf. the CP300, which means you can take the $1000 you saved and buy a pair of awesome studio monitors or keyboard amp and sub. The piano action is far better than the Rolands, my only explanation for those who prefer Rolands is they must never play acoustic pianos. In fact if you want better piano action you would probably have to upgrade to a Clavinova. Howver, I feel confident that I can play the CP33 for extended periods without my acoustic skills suffering. The Yamaha has few frills, e.g. a music rest, but Yamaha does sell one specifically for the CP33/300 for ~$40 if you need it. The unit comes with a pedal which can be used for sustain or aux. Yamaha is also now shipping Cubase AI4 with the piano which is nice. The Bad: For some reason the bottom of the piano is particle board versus metal. Not sure why. The audio outs are 1/4" TRS not XLR. Some people complain that the lack of built in speakers means you don't get the feedback that you would feel in an acoustic piano. Personally I prefer listening to the music through some awesome monitors anyway. The keys make a thumping sound which can be annoying, especially the black keys. And sometimes the keys have a little too much bounce. All in all, this is a sound purchase perfect for gigs, as a MIDI master, in-home studio performance, you name it.

  • Great, but needs some changes.

    As reviewed by Ruben Carrillo on 12/15/2013

    What drew me to this keyboard was the action and the price. I mostly use sample plugins for my work with MIDi orchestration and scoring. I needed a keyboard that had a natural velocity curve (as my past M-Audio MIDI keyboards were terrible for). That means you play soft and get soft sound, you play medium and you get medium, you play hard - and you know the rest. Cheaper keyboards were always too sensitive in one area or lacked in others. This keyboard works well as a gig keyboard as far as durability of its body and the quality of its pianos and e-pianos. I don't really care for the other instruments as I have grown accustomed to the higher quality of sampled libraries. Though, I should mention that the acoustic pianos - even after adjust tone brightness - tended to sound thin on studio monitors, pa speakers, and headphones. But one simple raising of high mids on the mixer solved this. What I absolutely hate about this board (which is why I gave it only 4 stars) is the fact that the pitch and mod wheels are are the top left corner. This is a terrible place to put them unless you are standing while playing. As an acoustic piano lover, I prefer easy access. I use the mod wheel a lot while recording tracks. Another thing I hate is the fact that this board doesn't have escapement. There are many sample libraries that take advantage of this feature and real pianos have escapement. It limits what I can do in my DAW. The third thing - and definitely the least - is the fact that the power cord is so cheap! I think Yamaha was trying to save on production costs and decided to use a standard 12v power adapter instead of the professional 120v AC power cord used on pro keyboards like the Motif or Roland Fantom. I feel like I have to constantly watch what kind of things are near to avoid damaging the fragile connection. All in all, I am very pleased with this keyboard's quality and its price. And the fact that it comes with a sustain pedal pleases me even more.

  • Great

    As reviewed by on 2/27/2007

    The action on this keyboard is excellent. All of the instrument sounds are great, and you can really tell a ton of time and effort was put into recording them. Was considering this or the Roland 300SX and went with Yamaha because the keys felt more solid. Very happy with this purchase.
