ELECTRIC GRAND PCP-80
Yamaha Electric Grand Piano CP-80
The original Yamaha CP-80 was a unique instrument. Not perfect, but definitely unique and inspiring. And these are probably the two most important things a musician looks for. The Prominy Electric Grand PCP-80 is unique and inspiring as well, a pleasure under the fingers. Oh, and you wont't ever need to take care of its tuning!

|About the Yamaha Electric Grand CP-80
|The Yamaha Electric Grand CP-80 was manufactured by the Yamaha Corporation
Musicians who love rock, progressive rock, fusion, jazz, funk and various
types of music love the characteristic warm piano sound of the Yamaha CP-80.
This electric piano is considered among the top in standards and is a "must-have"
A huge number of albums and musicians feature the CP-80 on their productions.
These musicians include George Duke, Michael McDonald of the Doobie Brothers,
Eddie Jobson in UK, and Peter Gabriel in Genesis. They love its characteristically
unique, sharp attack piano sound. Adding a chorusing effect or blending
this piano's timbre into a mix of acoustic and electric instruments adds
a luscious sound to any project. The production possibilities are endless.
When you touch a key of the CP-80, the inside hammer strikes directly at the internal tension string. Its structure is mechanically similar to that of a classic acoustic piano.
The CP-80�fs structure is unique because of the pick-up-microphones installed near these strings to receive the sound. There are 88 pick-up-microphones for each of the 88 keys in this keyboard.
The CP-80 looks cool and has an excellent sound. But it's also very hard
to maintain and keep in good condition because of its mechanical structure.
The CP-80 is a very sensitive device to tune. It detunes easily when moved,
there's a change in temperature, or a change in humidity. In the worst
case, the internal tension strings could break. It takes an expert tuning
engineer to tune perfectly.
Transporting the CP-80 is not easy. The keyboard is disassembled into two sections of which each section weighs a hefty 200 lbs.
