Don't Forget

The more affordable version of the CP4.

The CP40 Stage features a selection of grand piano sounds based on the Yamaha CFIIIs, one of Yamaha's Premium Collection grand pianos. A selection of vintage electric pianos including VCM effects and a variety of sounds from their flagship Motif round out the sound set so you're ready for any musical situation. The Graded Hammer action gives you true piano touch and response. The CP40 Stage's slim, lightweight design (36lb.) combines portability with elegant style. An easy to use interface with large lighted buttons for splits and layers gives you all the controls you need right at your fingertips.

Premium GP
As the largest acoustic piano manufacturer in the world Yamaha was able to hand select from their vast collection of hand-crafted grand pianos to create the sounds heard in the CP40 STAGE.

[CFIIIS] The Evolution of Excellence
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.

Vintage EP
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] Synonymous with the Electric Piano
Yamaha's Rd I offers 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. From a quiet ballad or jazz standard to countless rock classics, the Rd I 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 the 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
Category Select lets you call up the sounds you need quickly and easily-you 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 sounds.
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 with the touch of a button.

The CP STAGE combines portability with elegant style in a professional package.

Comments about Yamaha CP40 STAGE 88-Key Graded Hammer Stage Piano:

This thing is a hoss, but that's what you get with 88 keys. The sounds are truly amazing and pristine. I love the graded hammer action. It was fun revisiting the DX7 sounds that were all over the radio in the 80's.

I have a Nord Electro 4 which I love, but I find it hard to play piano and EP parts because the keys are semi-weighted. Graded hammer action is the way to go if you want to maximize your piano chops.

The CP40 will get you through any gig EXCEPT if you need organ sounds. You'll need to go elsewhere if you need B3 or combo organ simulation. Everything else is on the money.

At this price point, this board is worthy of your consideration. I'm glad I took the plunge.

      Comments about Yamaha CP40 STAGE 88-Key Graded Hammer Stage Piano:

      I bought this to replace my Yamaha P90. The P90 action is far superior. The P40 has a nice sound but really feels toy-like. The key travel is a little long, the feel is sloppy and bouncy, and very light plastic feeling. If you quickly play something your first impression may be that this thing is pretty good, but after a couple songs - meh. I can only think this model is there so that experienced professionals will spend another grand on the P4 with the "wooden" keys. Why do companies put this stuff out with on-board recording, terrible organ, clav, string patches, and 75 reverb settings? Don't they realize most of us have synths and organ sounds with the appropriate key feel and all we want is a piano? Ugh. I can't see how any pro musician with some amount of ability would rate this at more than two stars.
      It's also very chunky, much thicker and wider front to back than the old P90. And very surprising my 15 year old P90 feels so much better. Doesn't have wooden keys but feels like it does unlike this thing.
