Thirty years of technology and experience distilled into a brilliant instrument. Introducing the Yamaha CP33 stage piano.
In 1976, Yamaha released the first of the CP series stage pianos. These 'electric grands' became instant classics with their authentic sound and live performance convenience. Thirty years later, Yamaha celebrates those milestone keyboards by unveiling the greatest in the CP series: the CP33. Drawing on their rich tradition and experience, this instrument gives the live performer all the sound and expressiveness of a superbly mic'd grand piano with the portability and versatility of a modern digital instrument.

Made to be played
Like all fine instruments, the Yamaha CP33 simply begs to be played. Sit down with one, and the instrument becomes an extension of your hands and your musical imagination. The authentic piano voices and rich expressiveness 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.
Yamaha's extensive experience in crafting fine acoustic pianos helps us in creating the ultimate digital pianos such as the CP33. Their 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 keyboard practically plays itself, working with you -- not against you -- and brings out the very best in your performance.
Crafting the authentic sound of the Yamaha CP33 involved extraordinary attention to detail. They used meticulously recorded stereo samples of top-quality instruments, taken at various playing strengths, and included subtle elements such as String Resonance (harmonic overtones), 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 Yamaha CP33 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 two instrument Zones on the CP33, 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 Yamaha CP33 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.
Light and compact
Despite its full 88-key keyboard, realistic grand piano sound and extensive features, the Yamaha CP33 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 CP series keyboards give you the same pedal control as an actual grand piano. The Yamaha CP33 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.
