"Premium GP" features the authentic
sound of Yamaha Premium Grand Pianos. As the
largest acoustic piano manufacturer in the world
we were able to hand select from our vast
collection of hand-crafted grand pianos to create
the sounds heard in the CP4 STAGE.
[CFX] [CFIIIS] The Evolution of Excellence
The new flagship of the CF Series, the CFX full
concert grand piano represents the pinnacle of
Yamaha's tradition of piano crafting. Beautifully
made and with an exquisite tone that extends
across the entire dynamic range, the CFX has the
power to project its sound to the furthest reaches
of any concert hall.
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.
[S6] A Warmer More Delicate Sound
The S6 offers a lush tonal presence with a warm,
subtle depth to its sound. Featuring select bridge
materials and new refinements in the
specifications of its copper-wound springs, the S6
delivers a rich, resonant tone with a perfectly
pitched, harmonious bass, making it the idea piano
for accompanying vocals or quiet ballads.
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] [Rd II] Synonymous with the Electric Piano
Yamaha's Rd I and Rd II offer 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, while the Rd II reflects the remarkable
progress in musical instrument technology that
occurred in the latter half of the decade. From
the mellow modulation of a quiet ballad or jazz
standard to the percussive attacking sound heard
in countless rock classics, the warm resonance of
the Rd I and the clarity and power of the Rd II
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 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.
A simple and intuitive interface gives you instant
access to all the controls that you need.
- Change Voices
Voice Category buttons lets you call up the sounds
you need quickly and easily%u2014you 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
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 the touch of a button.
Our NW (natural wood) keyboard gives you the
perfect piano touch and response.
The CP4 STAGE features wooden keys with synthetic
ivory keytops and a Graded Hammer action similar
to that of a grand piano (the keys in the lower
register are heavier and the keys in the upper
register are lighter).
Yamaha's innovative GH3 keyboard has three
sensors: in addition to two sensors to detect
keystroke strength, it includes Yamaha's original
Damper Sensor. This enables you to use advanced
techniques such as playing the same note
repeatedly with perfect articulation, previously
only possible on a grand piano, which blends
sounds without the use of the damper pedal. You
also enjoy the keyboard touch of a grand piano,
including keys with weight gradations - heavy in
the lower end and lighter in the higher end. The
NW (Natural Wood) keyboard, with the same
structure as the GH3 keyboard, and synthetic ivory
keytops also provide the feel of a grand piano,
even the fingertip sensations.
The CP STAGE combines portability with elegant
style in a professional package.
The CP STAGE has a slim design that makes it
incredibly light and easy to carry (CP4 STAGE:
17.5kg (38.5 lbs), CP40 STAGE: 16.3kg (36 lbs)).
