The Yamaha CP33 is an 88-key professional stage piano and part of the high-quality CP series of products. The keyboard features the advanced Graded Hammer Effect action, which creates an authentic acoustic piano feel. Stereo samples of high-quality instruments provide the voices of the CP33 and include subtle touches such as string resonance, sustain and key-off to provide a realistic piano sound. Other voices include organ, guitar and more.
A full compliment of controls is provided on the CP33. You'll find everything from pitch and modulation wheels to two pedal inputs and two dedicated zone sliders. Perfect for use on stage or in a studio, the CP33 is lightweight for excellent portability without sacrificing quality. A special mono piano sound with compression has been designed specially for stage use, allowing you to stand out in full band situations.
Other features of the CP33 include a panel lock, which prevents unwanted settings changes, built-in effects such as reverb and chorus, comprehensive MIDI functions and a USB connector for recording your performances to a computer. For the serious player who needs a full feature set in a portable unit, the CP33 is a great option.

I'm using it to learn piano again. I had taken lessons as a child. The CP33's feel and sound are very enjoyable and rewarding.
In my opinion, this is still one of the best values in portable digital pianos/controllers. This is my second cp33. I sold my first one thinking I wanted something "lighter." Yes, I got lighter sounds, lighter road worthiness, flimsier materials. Just a less than pro experience than my good old road dog cp33. Now that I'm back, and the novelty of "lighter" has worn off, it feels great to be able to dig into a good, solid, reliable, simple and very, very portable "instrument." Yes, there are newer, flashier, pianos out there that are either too long, too heavy, too flimsy, too gimmicky. If you want that sweet spot of playability, dependability, high quality affordability and portability, this is the sweet spot.
