    Yamaha CP33 Review
    Overall Customer Rating44444

    Yamaha’s CP-33 is a stage piano created for musicians who want something more portable and versatile than an acoustic piano to play on stage for live performances. Unlike many digital pianos, this stage piano isn’t attached to a stand, which makes it easy for performers to transport it to gigs and rehearsals. Its triple-layer grand piano sound samples are high-quality and clear, making it a great alternative to a traditional grand piano when using a full-size or baby grand just isn’t practical.

    In a close resemblance of a traditional acoustic piano, the new Arius provides a realistic key touch experience on the higher and lower notes. The graded hammer keyboard requires a heavier touch on the lower notes and a lighter touch on the higher notes, providing a uniform keyboard experience regardless of whether you are using this piano for practice or performance.
