collapse expand iconDescription

The Yamaha CP73 73-Key Digital Stage Piano is a powerful portable digital keyboard designed for live performance and stage use. Featuring 73 full sized keys with graded hammer action, the CP73 provides an authentic grand piano feel for practicing and performances. Its Virtual Circuit Modeling technology creates rich, complex resonance in response to the player's touch, making this instrument a pianist's favorite. The CP73 is a versatile instrument ready to accompany any musical style.

Responsive Hammer Action Keys Provide Authentic Feel

The CP73 features 73 full-sized keys with graded hammer action, providing an impressively realistic grand piano feel. The heavier touch in the lower register and lighter touch in the higher register mirrors the hammers inside an acoustic grand piano. This graduated touch response allows for nuanced control and full, dynamic expression when performing.

Virtual Circuit Modeling Provides Rich Tonal Complexity

Yamaha's Virtual Circuit Modeling technology creates the complex resonance of an acoustic piano by modeling the interaction between strings, dampers and soundboard. The resulting resonance provides rich overtones that respond dynamically based on touch and pedaling. With VCM, the CP73 delivers stunningly expressive grand piano tones for an authentic playing experience.

Weighing in at just over 28.9 pounds, the CP73 is designed to be taken anywhere. It features an elegant yet durable cabinet, making it suitable for stage use and transportation between gigs.

With this robust set of sounds and features, the CP73 delivers dynamic and inspiring performances in any musical style.
