      Powerful features for playing live at a sweet price!

      The Yamaha CP33 Stage Piano is a fantastic instrument, especially for its modest price. It boasts 88 weighted keys with graded hammer-effect, 28 voices including 3-layer piano samples, sustain half-pedaling, and two effects processors. It has MIDI in/out and USB for computer connectivity, and 64-voice polyphony.

      Made to be played
      The authentic piano voices and rich expressiveness of the Yamaha CP series keyboards come alive at your touch, and the sound is big enough to blast through a full band onstage—yet nuanced enough to work magic in an intimate club.

      Expressive power
      Yamaha's extensive experience in crafting fine acoustic pianos was key in creating the ultimate digital pianos. Yamaha's advanced Graded Hammer Effect (GHE) action gives all keys an authentic resistance that increases from the top register to the lower—just as on an actual acoustic piano. Which means that you can naturally pound out thunderous low notes with your left hand and let the fingers on your right dance and fly with the high notes. This 88-key keyboard practically plays itself, working with you—not against you—and brings out the very best in your performance.

      Sound choice
      Crafting the authentic sound of the Yamaha CP-33 keyboard involved extraordinary attention to detail. Yamaha used meticulously recorded stereo samples of top-quality instruments, taken at various playing strengths, and included subtle elements such as Stereo Sustain (open strings while pedaling), and even Key-Off Samples (recordings of felt dampers coming to rest on vibrating piano strings)—providing the most authentic-sounding and finely nuanced acoustic piano voices possible. There's also a wide variety of other dynamic sounds, including vintage electric piano, organ, guitar, strings, and much more.

      Stay in control
      As master keyboard controllers, the CP-33 stage piano lets you take command of your gear. Play and control external synthesizers and tone generators (such as the MOTIF-RACK ES) during your performance. Assign different internal voices to different sections of the keyboard or even create complex, multi-textured layers of sound. There are 2 instrument Zones on the Yamaha CP-33 keyboard, with dedicated Zone sliders on the panel that let you easily tweak the level of each instrument as you play. You can also freely reassign the sliders and wheels to control other sonic characteristics of the connected gear as desired, such as sound attack, decay, brightness, and filter cutoff.

      Take center stage
      Step out front and make your presence known. The CP-33 piano keyboard has a special Mono Piano sound, complete with a compression effect, designed specifically for live performance. It has the punch and power to stand out, even in full band situations.

      Lock it up
      Onstage, you need to make sure everything goes smoothly. Sometimes an errant hand (yours or someone else's) can touch the panel controls and change your special settings, giving you a rude surprise in the middle of your performance. The Panel Lock button lets you prevent that, keeping all settings fixed and secure, until you're ready to change them yourself.

      A light and compact piano keyboard
      Despite its full 88-key keyboard, realistic grand piano sound and extensive features, the Yamaha CP-33 is exceptionally compact, light, and portable. It goes wherever you go, sets up anywhere you need, and gives you complete piano performance everywhere you play.

      Pedal to the metal
      The Yamaha CP keyboards give you the same pedal control as an actual grand piano. The CP-33 has Sustain Pedal and AUX jacks (which can be configured as Soft or Sostenuto, or even Expression). On certain piano sounds, Sustain can be partially applied—reproducing the "half-damper" effect of slightly muting the resonating strings on a real piano.

      Features

      • 88 keys with graded hammer effect weighted action
      • 64-note polyphony (max.)
      • 3-layer piano samples with Dynamic Stereo Sampling
      • Samples for key-off, sustain pedal, and string resonance
      • Sustain half-pedaling

        It's one of the few equipment purchase I would make again without reservation, and recommend to anyone who can afford it.
        If you want a stage piano, buy this, now that the price has come down. There might be something better than the CP-33, but you wouldn't need it. Prior to the CP-33's generation of keyboards, digital piano sounds weren't quite there. As of the CP-33, they've nailed it. I have owned mine for five years, and I like it just as much now as when it was new. It does not include a lot of sounds, but the ones it does are all useful and convincing, e.g. electric pianos and organs. Don't forget that the Variation button provides a second version of each patch. Pressing the Variation button with the organ selected causes a realistic transition between slow and fast Leslie rotation, which is the finest sound in the world, in my opinion.

        I own a Yamaha U3 upright. The CP-33's keyboard feels just as good, and sounds just as good if played through a high-quality amp. I use a Motion Sound KP-200S or a Roland SA300.

        Easy to move at 25 pounds. Very sturdy. The display is minimal, for which I give it a 9 instead of a 10. Editing parameters, such as changing the split point, is very easy, but not obvious because of the simple three-digit LED display. You will have to look up each function in the manual the first time you edit it--but only once, because it's really easy to remember after that.

        Try pressing Grand 1 and Mono Piano at the same time for a particularly rich piano tone.
        Tough. If your stand collapsed, the CP-33 would probably survive.
        A great value, now that the price has dropped. Put this on the lower tier of your two-tier stand, with a good synth above it and you're ready to make money. I suggest the Yamaha PSR S710 or S9 the Sweet/Cool/Live voices are magnificent--or the Casio WK-7500 if your resources are more modest.

        For the price, this board is OK...but JUST OK. Action is heavy but may need more breaking in. Piano's are acceptable, epiano is limited, strings are marginal, everything else is useless. I have a $17000 Yamaha Clavinova grand which I love and maybe I compare everything to that and my old reliable Kurzweils for on stage (now too heavy for me to move), but I keep expecting more and better pianos from Yamaha. I sold my S08 which was garbage for half price just to get rid of it but I'll keep this one. For my mainly one night stand singles and light jazz with a group, it's acceptable. Get yourself a backup AC adapter. There's no way the piece of junk you get with this keyboard will last and, worst case scenario, it'll likely fail right after the first chord on a 4 hour gig with an audience of 5000. I guess it always amounts to the same thing: you get what you pay for.

                Comments about Yamaha CP33 88-Key Stage Piano:

                I recently joined a band that plays an upbeat tempo style of music. I wanted something that could handle the energy, was very simple, and was affordable. I am a Yamaha freak when it comes to pianos and keyboards, so my first destination was Yamaha's site. I looked up there and found the CP33. It was the only one that really appealed to me, due to it's simplicity. The piano voice comes out so clear and lovely. Very easy to listen to. I think you might want to change the setting to a more mellow, otherwise it may sound somewhat like a regular portable keyboard. I love all the great control you have over it, from action, to tone, to voice, to volume, and even to lock the buttons on the board so that you don't accidentally hit them to where they change the settings. I would so recommend it to anyone who has the same mind as I do! TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!

                CP33 is the BEST full size, full weighted piano in it's class. I have owned one for 5 years and have taken it everywhere. It is durrable to go to gigs, break down and set up over and over again and still work excellently. This tough keyboard has been with me to outdoor concerts and smoky bars. I have played so many places in the past five years it is traveling constantly. My advice buy a backup power cord as this is the weakest part. The sounds are great particularly the electric & acoustic painos, organs sounds are limited but Strings are very good. Still the best under $1000. and under 45 lbs. carry in/out without handtruck.

                Comments about Yamaha CP33 88-Key Stage Piano:

                The Yamaha CP 33 fits my stage needs perfectly. I wanted a no frills, road worthy, 88 key portable rig with a realistic piano sound, key action and touch. Excellent value, quality, sound. You can change the key touch (weight). Medium seems real enough from my experience. I use a Roland for organ sounds.
                I only give it a 7 because it doesn't have many features. However, I didn't want to pay for a lot of features and resident computer hardware that i don't use on stage.
                the key action and feel is just like most pianos. it sounds great on stage and on a live recording at a recent gig. Excellent, realistic piano sound. It seems to be built very well, very solid.

                Worth every penny. A big step up from cheap unweighted synths and weighted casio keyboards.
                GREAT piano sounds. I'm blown away by how realistic the samples sound, and the notes have a good sustain. Has a built in metronome that has transformed our band practices. Buy this for the piano sounds, not the strings or other instruments.
                Worth the money. I previously had a Roland Synth Keyboard, then a Casio, and then this. They aren't even comparable to the Yamaha.
                It's great. Heavy as heck, but great.

                Comments about Yamaha CP33 88-Key Stage Piano:

                My hybrid piano project required a real piano sound and weighted keyboard that would fit into a less than 52" space (the dimensions of a Vose & Sons grand piano keyboard). The only reason Features is not a 5.0 is because of the weak strings section sound, however, I was delighted with the control of multi-voice if you are into that. Everyone in the auditorium thinks this is a real piano. Delighted with the control and sound, especially in the "HEAVY" touch mode. This makes this keyboard feel like a grand piano and allows very quiet playing to a soft touch.
