Yamaha Corporation announces that this year the Yamaha CP88/CP73 stage pianos and the Sonogenic SHS-500 keytars were selected to receive an iF Design Award, which is a prestigious German design award.
CP88/CP73 Stage Pianos
Powered by over 100 years of piano craftsmanship and 45 years of synthesizer innovation, the CP88 and CP73 stage pianos continue a rich tradition as the newest in the CP Series of keyboards designed for live performances. The CP88/CP73 stage pianos boast authentic acoustic and electric piano sound, realistic piano touch, and an intuitive one-to-one user interface. Durable, yet compact and light, the stage pianos are available in both 88-key and 73-key models.
Sonogenic SHS-500 Keytars
The Sonogenic SHS-500 is a "keytar", a digital keyboard that can be held like a guitar, designed to allow anyone to experience the fun of musical performance immediately, even if they've never played a keyboard before. With a JAM function that automatically matches notes played on the instrument to the chord progressions of songs played on connected smart devices, the SHS-500 lets even beginners enjoy performing along with their favorite songs. Weighing just 1.5 kg with a built-in speaker, these instruments can be operated using batteries only and come equipped with 30 instrument voices, a knob that lets you control a wide range of effects, and even a MIDI terminal. The Sonogenic SHS-500 features a simple design while still being a great choice for full-fledged performances and musical composition.
