The CP88 is Yamaha’s flagship stage piano, and boasts authentic acoustic and electric piano sounds with a focus on performance with most tweakable functions controlled via a dedicated knob or switch, making for quick, intuitive control over the sound of the instrument in a live performance setting. It is one of the most inspiring stage pianos currently available from any manufacturer.
The CP88 features Yamaha’s Natural Wood Graded Hammer action with synthetic ebony and ivory keytops, giving the player complete control over ever nuance of their playing. The CP88 includes 10 world class acoustic piano voices and 14 authentic electric piano voices with dedicated control sections for each, giving the user the option to shape the specifics of their sound easily in real time. The CP88 also includes 33 additional sounds that can be layered or assigned to a certain section of the keyboard.
A range of effects, both voice-specific and global, add a depth of realism to the sound and can be controlled directly from the front of the keyboard.
At 18.6kg, the CP88 is extremely lightweight for a stage piano of this calibre – perfect for musicians taking this instrument on the road.
