Yamaha launches new Stage pianos
Adding to their heavy roster of instruments, Yamaha pianos have announced two new pianos to be launched in November 2013.
The CP4 and CP40 were unveiled to a selection of international dealers at an exclusive launch event which took place in Italy.
Whilst many manufacturers take the opportunity of making their newer models more expensive or exclusive, the new Yamaha pianos will be different in that they will use many of the features of the existing and popular CP1 but for a much lower price, making them more accessible to students, semi-professionals and home users.
Those existing features will include the sounds and dynamics which can be found on many of Yamaha’s acoustic and vintage models, and these are firm favourites of many existing fans, including those who adore the Yamaha UL Piano. In addition, the two new models will feature Yamaha Premium Sound, Advanced Wave Memory and an 88 note wooden graded hammer keyboard with synthetic ivory keys.
Both models will also feature slim line designs and low weights of only 17kg each, together with relatively low recommended retail prices of £2,035 for the CP4 and £1,526 for the CP40 when launched.
At the same event, Yamaha also announced that they are currently working on a batch of new synth designs and that these will be premiered in the near future.
Choosing Between Traditional and Modern
The choice between a traditional piano and a more modern electric version is one which is not only highly contested but also deeply personal. Whilst some people prefer the ease of electric pianos which come with a lack of need for piano tuning Middlesex and of course a range of sounds and effects, there are traditionalists who not only prefer the playing ability of their classical models but also prefer the look, feel and appeal of playing a more traditional piano.
The launch of new digital pianos by Yamaha and other major manufacturers, and their ability at piano shop London does not mean, however, that there is less of a need for the traditional measures and in fact the use of the piano in live music and studio sessions is more popular than ever.
