Excerpt: Given decent amplification, it's a real 9' Steinway sound with very powerful bass. If all U want is the sound of a 9' Steinway, U don't care about the expression, & U can't qualify for a $5,000,000,000 government loan, skip real pianos completely. Mind U, you're replaying previously recorded samples, not making your own sounds. No matter how hard U try, U can't make it play sounds other than what was recorded in manufacturing.
Excerpt: The Grand piano is excellent, both organs are excellent, and the electric painos are super too. The harpsecord is very good and both the clav & the E Bass are excellent. The worst sound in the keyboard is the guitar which doesn't sound anything like a guitar (they try for a Nylon string sound) the strings are very good blended with the grand sounds great. I use it with a 200 watt carvin PA head and a pair of EV ZX190 speakers.
Excerpt: Good sound quality, a big improvement over the P-90 (that i also own). The piano sounds greats and more mellow. The pianos are by far the best in this price category. I also like the organ 2 with the leslie at 15, wich becomes warm and full. If your looking for a professional stage piano with master controller capabilities this is it. I use the CP-33 and the P-90 live, as a professional musician, and they're reliable, simple and with good sound quality.
Excerpt: Top of the line piano samples, very expressive multi layer samples that come to life as you play. Yamaha has always came out on top when it comes to piano samples, and again they have done it better. The CP-33 is a large step up from the P-series units in both sound and feel. This review considers only the piano sounds, the other sounds are very true and nice, but not needed.
