In any setting, the Yamaha CP4 Stage is an exceptional piano. Featuring 45 grand piano sounds from Yamaha's Premium Collection, plus 47 vintage EPs, you'll never have to settle for "close enough." In addition, you'll find 341 voices covering basses, clavs, organs, strings, and pads, based on the acclaimed Motif soundset. The 88-note graded hammer action keybed with real wood keys feels superb, and the CP4 Stage weighs less than 40 pounds, making it easy to transport.

Yamaha has been crafting fine acoustic pianos for over a century, and as the largest acoustic piano manufacturer in the world, they are able to select from an immense collection of hand-crafted grand pianos to create the sounds in your CP4 Stage. The flagship CFX concert grand represents the apex of Yamaha's piano-making tradition. Flawlessly made and with an exquisite tone that spans the complete dynamic range, the CFX has the awesome power to fill any concert hall. With the CP4 Stage piano, you have instant access to the CFX, as well as the superb CFIII and the S6.
Yamaha's Graded Hammer Wooden Key action with synthetic ivory keys gives you incredibly realistic grand piano touch and response. This advanced 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 pound out thunderous low notes with your left hand and let the fingers on your right dance and fly on the high notes. Add to that the inimitable feel of real-wood white keys with synthetic ivory keytops, and you've got a keyboard that begs to be played.
Yamaha knows what you need in a professional stage piano, and that includes being able to use it as a full-fledged MIDI controller. (When you have access to a superb keybed like the one in the CP4 Stage, you'll likely want to use it for everything.) That's why, in addition to USB and traditional MIDI, the CP4 provides a full compliment of controller features, including pitch and mod wheels and two CC pedal inputs, so you can control your software or hardware synths with the expression to ignite passionate performances. The CP4 Stage also comes with the FC3 foot pedal, which supports half-damper techniques and lush soundboard resonance.
The CP4 STAGE from Yamaha is a digital stage piano that features a selection of sounds (voices) from Yamaha's hand-crafted grand pianos, including the CFX, CFIIIS and S6. Also included are well-known vintage EPs (electric pianos) with VCM effects, the piano sounds of the venerable DX series of digital synthesizers, and a variety of sounds based around the company's flagship MOTIF synthesizer. All of this has been matched with an 88-note, wooden-key Graded Hammer action keyboard that provides the authentic piano touch and response. Additionally, the lightweight design combines portability with elegant style. Yamaha's GH3 keyboard has three sensors: in addition to two sensors to detect keystroke strength, it includes a Damper Sensor that enables the playing of the same note repeatedly with perfect articulation. This also blends sounds without the use of the damper pedal. Voice Category buttons facilitate calling up sounds quickly and easily with favorites storable for each category. Large lighted buttons make it easy to split and layer sounds even on the darkest stage, making it simple to switch from a full piano, to a piano layered with strings, or with a split bass sound. A single button press returns the piano sound to the entire keyboard.
