The Yamaha CP4 STAGE is simply the best stage piano Yamaha has ever made. A selection of voices from Yamaha’s Premium hand-crafted grand pianos including CFX, CFIIIS and S6, vintage Electric Pianos with VCM effects and a variety of sounds based on Yamaha’s flagship MOTIF synth have been matched with an 88-note wooden-key Graded Hammer action to provide the ultimate piano touch and response.
The CP4 STAGE’s slim, lightweight design combines portability with elegant style. It also features an easy-to-understand interface with large lighted buttons for splits and layers. That gives you all the controls you need right at your fingertips.
Wooden Keys – The perfect piano touch and response
The CP4 STAGE features wooden keys with synthetic ivory key tops. An “A” Grade Hammer action similar to that of a grand piano is a delight to play. Like a grand piano, the keys in the lower register are heavier and the keys in the upper register are lighter.
Ease-of-Use – A simple and intuitive interface
Handy Voice Category buttons lets you call up the sounds you need quickly and easily. You can even store your favorite sounds for each category. The large lighted buttons make it easy to split and layer sounds even on the darkest stages. Therefore, 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.
