The Yamaha CP5 digital piano takes the core sounds and technologies of the CP1 and offers them in an instrument that is both flexible and affordable. In fact, it adds an range of AWM sounds. Clavs, organs, strings and more make the CP5 perfect for church and live situations where everything needs to be performed on one keyboard.

Questions and Comments
I am thinking of buying a stage piano and would like more advice and your opinion on the yamaha CP series – Have 1st downloaded your free digital piano guide which has been very interesting reading – – i am a flutist foremost, but a pianist secondly who swore she would never play on ‘digital’ keyboards. I love my own piano dearly (nearly more than my
flute) and have been playing for more years than i want to count, however turning up for a tango gig to find the upright a semitone flat and making do on a small wurlitzer instead opened my eyes to having to be more prepared – ie take my own instrument. Definitely need an 88 key for tango, but has to be portable – (not with fixed stand) – realise i must make a journey to civilisation to try some of these beasts out but just wanted to verify that i was on the right track in thinking about the yamaha cp series?
Grateful for your opinion

The Roland FP-7F is my favourite portable
piano (with built-in speakers).
The tone (which is sampled from a Steinway
concert grand) is rich, clear and vibrant.
The key touch is smooth and responsive.
Although a little noisy when playing with
headphones. But nothing much to worry
