I have a beautiful CP 80, everything is perfect aside form the output from the XLR and the 1/4". The xlr seems to get a lot of hiss and feedback, and the 1/4" seems to be at very low out put, the volume knob also doesn't seem to do much.. Any advice would be great!!

Bought right out of the crate from Japan, I had my Yamaha piano tuner join me to pry it out of the crate and assemble it behind the (then) Music Shoppe (north of Toronto) in 1983. I've had 1 string replaced since and can literally count the maybe 7 times I've had it tuned - and tuned myself, as this baby stays in tune.. even when I was on the road (I have 2 custom flight cases). In 1986 I had a MIDI retrofit installed locally from FORTE MUSIC MIDI MOD, I beleieve from California. This is hands down THE BEST expressive piano I've EVER played (now 43 years & counting). Can't say enough about it, actually.

This instrument does one thing, and only one thing, very well. The action is perfect, the dynamics are perfect, and the sound is not exactly grand piano, but perfect for what it does. It is built like a rock, and looks cooler than any other instrument or synth other than maybe the B3 on stage. Get one, learn how to use a tuning hammer, and live in keyboard nirvana. My first one cost me $4200 new, and my last one only cost me $610, in nearly mint condition...WHAT A STEAL !! Parts are impossible to find; but hey, it's a Yamaha Piano, built to take it and stay intact. In owning 2 of them over 25 years, the only thing that I have ever broken were strings (2).

Has a sound no sampler can duplicate. Very dense and liquid, like Mercury! Try running one side through phase & delay, the other side dry. Man, what a trippy ride! I have two CP-80's, one for parts and the other for an extra harp. I'm always looking for another! They are a total pain to move and spare parts are impossible to find. Tuning is also constantly required, almost daily. I don't care, it's a GLORIOUS instrument!
