We are SO excited... come help us break it all in!


Our quest for the ultimate piano sound led us to the Yamaha CP-300 Digital Piano. You will love its true piano feel beneath your fingers as well as its extremely yummy strings, electric piano, organ -in addition to its unrivaled Grand Piano sound... Its a very, very long list of delicious sounds this thing makes. We did more than a years worth of research and testing and listening to all the major brands before we took this sweetheart home. We are in love. Can you tell?
