Overview

The CP40 Stage features a selection of grand piano sounds based on the Yamaha CFIIIs, one of Yamaha's Premium Collection grand pianos. A selection of vintage electric pianos including VCM effects and a variety of sounds from their flagship Motif round out the sound set so you're ready for any musical situation. The Graded Hammer action gives you true piano touch and response. The CP40 Stage's slim, lightweight design (36lb.) combines portability with elegant style. An easy to use interface with large lighted buttons for splits and layers gives you all the controls you need right at your fingertips.

Premium GP
As the largest acoustic piano manufacturer in the world Yamaha was able to hand select from their vast collection of hand-crafted grand pianos to create the sounds heard in the CP40 STAGE.

[CFIIIS] The Evolution of Excellence
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.

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] Synonymous with the Electric Piano
Yamaha's Rd I offers 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. From a quiet ballad or jazz standard to countless rock classics, the Rd I 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 the 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
Category Select 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 with the touch of a button.

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

    Comments about Yamaha CP40 STAGE 88-Key Graded Hammer Stage Piano:

    I traded a Roland FA 08 in to get the Yamaha CP40. I am so glad. Finally a stage piano that not only sounds like a piano, but plays like one too. The touch and sensitivity of the keys is unparalleled. I am stoked and look forward to lots of playing time with my new instrument.

    Great Stage Instrument

    Comments about Yamaha CP40 STAGE 88-Key Graded Hammer Stage Piano:

    I first purchased the Roland RD300NX, and was very disappointed. From touch (both the gradation in weighted keys and the synthetic ivory feel) to actual sampling and sounds, I found the RD300NX to be a let down. But everywhere that the NX failed, the CP-40 has succeeded! As a piano performance major and worship leader, I have some very specific needs in a keyboard. Here are some of the features I appreciate about the CP-40 Touch: Great balance and response in the weighted keys. Solid wood keys covered in plastic like most acoustic pianos. Sounds/Sampling: I love best the second acoustic piano setting "CS+" It is bright and crisp and cuts through the sound of a band nicely. The onboard equalizer (three faders for Low, Mid, High) lets you easily adjust the color of the tone to your preference. There are some surprisingly great string patches as well! You can hear the crisp attack of the bow on the string, while not sounding too reedy or thin. Decent to good organ patches, and the leslie function (controlled by one of the mod wheels on the left) is not too over the top. Not quite the level of control I'd want on the frequency/speed of the leslie, but still better sounding than the RD300NX in my opinion. I find that all the other sounds on a keyboard beyond pianos, organs, and strings, are just bonuses. I haven't fully explored the CP-40s other offerings yet. Some decent synth pads, though I usually look for simple soft or warm pads that just add fill and depth to sound. The CP-40 has only 1 or 2 such pads that I like fairly well. Overall I believe the CP-40 is as great stage instrument for either solo performance or for use with a band.
