As we get into the high end equipment, the Yamaha CP300 stage piano jumps out as being something special in this category. This is a close to a real piano sound as you can get, close your eyes while it is being played and it is very hard to hear the difference.
No matter what genre you like to play, the Yamaha CP300 can produce the sounds that will enable you to play it to perfection. The sound is crisp and incredibly clear, and with the extensive range of voices and features you get on this digital piano, you have so much scope to really get creative and produce music without any limitations.
The 88 key keyboard uses Yamaha’s innovative GHE (graded hammer effect) system to provide a really authentic resistance any time a key is hit. This resistance increases from the top register all the way down to the lower, just as you get on a real acoustic piano. This will enable you to play the piano with the same vigor you would on an acoustic piano and put your all into your performances.
