Yamaha CP-80


Yamaha Corp.


End of 70th - Beginning of 80th


The Yamaha CP-80 was the biggest version from the "CP series". It's not a normal E-Piano like today's. The technology is simple: real piano strings were played like in a big piano. But because of the piano body is so little, the sound couldn't be amplified through it. So the sound is taken by microphones and amplified electronically.
There was even the Yamaha CP-80M with MIDI. The CP-80 was also called the "Yamaha Electric Grand Piano".

Usage in Kitaro's music:

Piano sound.
