Tired of lugging those giant heavy old stage pianos around with you all over the place?
Got a burning desire to play Superstition as you’re walking down the street?
Have Yamaha got a solution for you!
The Yamaha Reface CP is a tiny compact alternative to the classic Electric Pianos such as the Rhodes, the Wurlitzer and the Clavinet. You can either use this as a stand-alone portable keyboard, perfect for playing all those 70’s classics anywhere you like (since it’s battery powered) or you can connect it up to another keyboard and use the Reface as a sound module.
Iconic 70s stage keyboards
With sounds from the infamous keyboards of the 70s, the Yamaha Reface is all you need to recreate the classic vintage sounds you love without breaking the bank (or your back!)
As well as being able to play classic electric piano sounds, you can apply vintage effects and reverb. A great way to put your own spin on the memorable voice of the Wurlitzer, or hear how the Clavinet would sound in a whole new room environment. Instantly take 6 pianos from a concert hall to a packed club without the removal van.
Its design is living proof: The reface CP is a spiritual successor of the unique stage keyboards of the 70s. It brings emotional and powerful vintage sounds into today’s mobile world without any compromise regarding sound, playability or polyphony.
As a Combo Piano, the reface CP offers six classical keyboard sounds with excellent quality thanks to SCM (Spectral Component Modelling) and AWM2 sound generation. Carefully selected vintage effects increase the authenticity of the sounds even further, instantly evoking memories of legendary songs throughout the history of rock and pop – for example by Keane, U2, Genesis and Billy Joel.
