Here we have a lovely piece of Yamaha history, a CP-80 in excellent condition for it's age. This 88 key electric grand piano sounds fantastic, the inbuilt tremolo is absolutely awesome.
The Original 2-pin Cannon power adaptor has been replaced with a standard 18 Volt 1-pin jack making it much easier to power with just a simple 18v power supply. Other than this modification and one missing metal hook for one sustain pedal chain it is in all original condition.
This Cp-80 has not been serviced but it is playing and sounding great with all keys, functions and sustain pedal working well. It is sounding great as is but may benefit from a tune once transported and setup in your studio/space.
Comes with original lid for packing down into a 'suitcase' format.
About the CP-80
The CP-80 was an electric grand piano developed to deliver the depth of expression of an acoustic instrument while holding its own when performing on stage with electric guitars played at full volume through an amplifier and speakers. In contrast to the CP-70, which has 73 keys, the CP-80 has 88 keys just like a grand piano.
Very similar to a cut-down acoustic grand piano, the CP-80 features the same frame action and frame construction as an acoustic piano, but can be split into two cases for storage, and utilizes an electric guitar-style pickup system to pick up the sound for amplification via an amplifier.
Its characteristic bright, edgy sound swept the music scene, with the CP-80 seeing extensive use in both live performance and recording scenarios.
