Yamaha Premium Acoustic Grand Pianos
CP73 and 88 feature three premium concert grand pianos: the Yamaha CFX, Yamaha S700 and the Bösendorfer Imperial 290. These pianos provide full dynamic expression and nuance through meticulous recording and voicing.[ CFX ] With over 17 years of development, the Yamaha CFX is our flagship 9’ concert grand piano. The CFX offers sparkling highs, powerful bass with incredible dynamic range and the strength to project over a full symphony orchestra.[ Bösendorfer ] Bösendorfer is unique amongst piano makers as the only manufacturer in the world still utilizing the Viennese handcrafted design tradition. This produces warm bass, singing treble and rich tonal colors known as the “Viennese Sound.” The 9.5’ 8-octave Imperial 290 is the flagship of Bösendorfer grand piano. The extended bass notes resonate with every key you strike, and the massive soundboard supports projection at all frequencies.[ S700 ] The S700 is a handcrafted acoustic grand piano built by Yamaha master artisans. It has the power to cut through dense arrangements while remaining delicate and expressive in solo and sparse settings. The S700 was one of the most popular grand piano Voices from the S90ES and S90 stage synthesizer.
Yamaha Acoustic Upright Piano
The UI is the most popular upright piano in the world. The CP73 and CP88 U1 Voice features a vintage, well-used character. This makes it perfect for any music needing the vibe and sound of an authentic upright piano.[ SU7 ] The SU7 is the flagship Yamaha acoustic upright piano. The SU7 delivers rich, resonant tone from shared CFX concert grand hammer specification.
Electric Pianos & Keyboards
[Yamaha CP80] Yamaha introduced the CP80 and CP70 electric grand pianos in 1978 to give musicians great grand piano sound that could cut through a live band. The CP80 sound on the CP73 and CP88 is powerful and fat with wide, dynamic range.[ 76 Rd ] The 76 Rd tine electric piano has wide dynamic range, high quality and is great for FX. Suitable for all genres of music.[ 75 Rd ] 75 Rd has a dirtier, “funkier” tine electric piano sound, great for music requiring vibe and character.[ 73 Rd ] 73 Rd has a vintage, fat and warm tine electric piano sound perfect for ballads and accompanying singers.
The Wr reed electric piano Voice offers vintage and modern versions with wide dynamic range. Organs, Clavi and Keyboards: CP73 and CP88 also feature a wide range of other keyboard sounds including: tonewheel, transistor and pipe organs plus clavi, FM pianos and more to cover any playing situation.

VCM (VIRTUAL CIRCUITRY MODELING) Effects
Virtual Circuitry Modeling re-creates the sound and behavior of vintage effects and high-end studio signal processors by modeling the circuits down to the original analog component level.
The feel of an instrument is how a musician conveys their uniqueness. CP73 and CP88 feature keyboard action designed with knowledge informed by over 100 years of acoustic piano-making to provide piano players with the action they need for maximum expression.
