Yamaha took the best of both worlds from their CP Stage Piano and YC Stage Keyboard for the ultimate experience in the CK Series Stage Pianos. With 61-key and 88-key options on hand, you can choose the best sonic partner for your musical pursuits. The CK Series brings streamlined functionality to the table, plus sounds from the CP Series and organ and synth from the YC Series. Hands-on controls like drawbars, synth-based tweakability, a 3-band equalizer, and direct access to each instrument category made the CK a quick favorite at Music Experience. The CK88 features a graded hammer standard action keybed for those who like the expressiveness of an acoustic piano. Lastly, with built-in speakers, A/D input, 4 zones of MIDI control, Bluetooth input, and battery-powered portability, you’ll quickly find something to love about Yamaha’s mind-bending CK Series of stage pianos.

Incredible sound only Yamaha can achieve

By merging the best of the CP Stage Piano with the organ-focused interface of the YC Stage Keyboard, Yamaha brings you a stage piano experience that can roar with fat-sounding synths or sing out with gorgeous pianos, organs, strings, brass, percussion, and more. However you prefer, Yamaha makes it easy to grab a sound and jam or minutely craft your unique sound. Users can access a host of onboard effects like reverb, delay, modulation, distortion, wah, filters, and rotary speaker effects. The graded hammer standard action keybed of the CK88 feels great under the hands for those wanting detailed expression similar to an acoustic piano.

Performance never felt so simple

The CK Series offers more than its incredible organs, synth, and piano sounds. You can split, layer, and mix sounds when you’re playing. For instance, players can split the keyboard at two points to play a vaporwave synth, a brass section, and a grand piano all at the same time. And you can dial in your synth sound with filter and envelope control. A Live Set function keeps performance setups stored in a memory bank for you to revisit later. Keyboardists can plug in a mic or other keyboard to perform using the A/D input. Lastly, a Bluetooth audio input makes playing along to your favorite tracks quick and straightforward.

Your 2nd in command and your roadie at the same time

Portability is the name of the game with the CK Series stage pianos. A one-to-one interface keeps your eye on the ball while making music, freeing you from intensive menu dives. The CK pianos also boast four zones of MIDI Master Keyboard Control, allowing you masterful control over hardware and soft synths. Yamaha equipped the CK Series with two customizable pedal inputs so you can double the expression. Unlike its previous brethren, the CK Series can run on battery power, so you can take it everywhere you play. Not to mention, the CK88 is lightweight at 28.9 pounds, and the CK61 is a minuscule 12.3 pounds. Change the way you play and perform with Yamaha’s CK Series.

What Yamaha Says...

With authentic piano, organ and synth sounds, intuitive controls and built-in speakers, the lightweight CK88 makes everywhere a stage or studio.


CK combines the sounds of the Yamaha CP Stage Piano with the organ and synth focused YC Stage Keyboard to give you a totally new sonic palette. All with an intuitive interface that lets you focus on the music, not the menus. You’ll have piano, electric pianos, strings and brass plus a dedicated organ section and modern synth sounds. Onboard special effects to make it your own. There’s even Analog to Digital (A/D) Input to plug in a mic or another instrument, apply effects and record directly to your laptop. Not to mention CK has built-in speakers and batteries to take your new sound to new places. The options are nearly endless.

Pianos, EP & Keys

CK features piano sounds from three legendary Yamaha grands: the CFX, S700 and CF3, plus the character-rich U1 upright piano from the Yamaha YC Series. “Digi Piano” sounds let you get your 90s dance party on. There’s also a selection of vintage electric piano sounds in both the reed and tine style, funky Clavi sounds and the classic 80s DX7-style FM electric pianos Yamaha helped make famous. You’ll have all the keyboard sounds you need to bring down the house, arena or backyard barbecue.


When it comes to organ, the versatile CK is all about options. Classic 60s surf rock? Check. Soulful R&B? Check. Gospel and everything in between? Amen. CK has a dedicated organ section based on the Yamaha reface YC mobile mini keyboard featuring five different organ types, rotary speaker effect, percussion and a newly enhanced vibrato/chorus. You get nine dedicated drawbars with controls for the rotary speaker, percussion and a vibrato/chorus section.


CK gives you a variety of complex synth sounds without the complex menus. You get analog style pads, leads and basses, synth brass, strings and pads. Even synth bells and textures to add to your synth sound palette. All with modern synth controls to tweak your sound without menu diving. Elegant filter and envelope generator (EG) controls to shape the tone and amplitude of all of them. Mono mode with panel switch and customization features that are great for synth leads and basses. Unison mode with panel switch, three modes and deeper adjustments. Make massive sounding synths for stabs, pads, leads, basses or anything you can imagine.


CK effects make it easy to turn its sounds into your sound. It starts with three dedicated effects processors: Drive, Effects 1 and Effects 2 plus an A/D Input with two dedicated Effects. Drive features five types of overdrive and distortion to add edge to your sound. Effects 1 and 2 gives you modulation effects like Chorus, Flanger and Phaser. Time-based effects like Delay and Reverb plus Wah, (even more) Drive, Tremolo and experimental synth effects such as Ring Modulation, Slicer, Lo-Fi, and more. Not to mention EQ. With 36 effects in all, it’s like having a built-in, customizable guitar pedal board. Master Delay lets you choose from four different delay effects including Tempo Delay. Master Reverb has three different reverb settings to put your sound in the right space. Both Master Delay and Master Reverb have their own send level from each of the three CK parts and A/D Input. Then finalize the tone of your sound with Master EQ. Plug a mic or instrument into the A/D inputs, apply effects and hear the resulting sound through the CK’s speakers or outputs. You can even record anything plugged into the A/D input to your computer via the built-in USB audio interface.

CK features an intuitive, 1 to 1 interface that gives you the freedom to explore your sound. Everything, from dedicated Organ controls to Synth and Effects controls, is designed to keep you making music instead of diving into menus.

Keyboard Action

The CK Series has two different keyboard actions for different kinds of players. CK61 features the new 61-key “FSB” or “Future System Basic” action, inspired by the famed “FS” or “Future System” action that was originally developed for Electone organs like the legendary FX-1. In the spirit of the original “FS” action, FSB uses a completely new structure. This action features a heavier initial key resistance and increased key travel for a wider range of expression and stability. This action is great for keyboardists playing organ, synths, strings and more, and provides piano and electric pianos with a dynamic, expressive response. CK88 features Graded Hammer Standard (GHS), 88-key, weighted and graded action to recreate the feeling of playing a Yamaha grand piano, without ever having to call the piano movers.


The intuitive User Interface lets you dive into the music, not the menu and features Dedicated Category buttons that make it easy to find the sound you’re looking for.

Filter & EG

CK Filter and Envelope Generator (EG) feature dedicated controls for the most commonly-used synth parameters and a dedicated bypass button to quickly return to the default state. You have total control to shape your sound.

Live Set

LIVE SETS store and recall the exact settings for anything on the front panel including your splits, layers and special effects. It also stores and recalls features such as A/D Input setting, sample playback and LED light color.

MIDI Master

A four-zone controller connects with your external MIDI devices to turn CK into a full-fledged MIDI controller with your DAW or master keyboard in your MIDI rig. Which means you get four additional sounds at your fingertips with complete control of the splits, octave adjustments, patch changes and more.


All the world’s a stage - or studio. And CK is the portable keyboard ready to play anywhere at a moment’s notice. Take it camping and livestream by a stream. Play in the park.
