Yamaha CP4 Stage Piano Wins Frankfurt Musikmesse International Press Award
FRANKFURT, Germany (April 28, 2014)–The Yamaha CP4 Stage Piano received the Musikmesse International Press Award (MIPA) for best Stage Keyboard. More than 100 magazines from around the world participate in MIPA voting, selecting what they determine to be the best musical instruments and audio equipment in 38 categories at the Musikmesse 2014 music industry trade show.
Yamaha formally launched the CP4 Stage Piano at the 2014 NAMM Show this past January, and it became an instant hit with artists and dealers world-wide.
“We designed the CP4 to be the best stage piano that Yamaha has ever made, and it is gratifying that a large portion of the world’s music journalists are able to appreciate the results,” said Nate Tschetter, marketing manager, Music Production, Yamaha Corporation of America. “We spent a lot of time and effort crafting the model’s sounds, styling and interface so that keyboard players would sound their best no matter what style of music they play.”
The CP4 Stage features a selection of 45 Voices from Yamaha’s Premium handcrafted grand pianos, including the CFX, CFIIIS and S6; 47 vintage electric pianos with Virtual Circuit Modeling effects and a wide variety of 341 sounds based on the flagship MOTIF synthesizer. These sounds have been matched with an 88-note Natural Wood Graded Hammer triple sensor action to provide the ultimate piano touch and response.
The model’s slim, lightweight design combines portability with elegant style and features an easy-to-understand interface with large lighted buttons for splits and layers that gives performers all the controls they need right at their fingertips.
