Yamaha CK61 Stage Keyboard Piano
All-rounder for stage, studio – and everywhere else

The new Yamaha CK61 is made to be everything and everywhere: combining sound characteristics of the CP and YC instruments, the CK series specialises in making those sounds available wherever musicians need them. While traditional use on a stage or in a studio the CK61 can operate beyond the usual confines. The new models can be powered with batteries and with a line/microphone input and integrated loudspeakers, which also opens a world of possibilities to play on the move.

Take your sound where it’s never been before. Anywhere.
CK turns everywhere into a stage or studio with intuitive controls, built-in speakers, and all the sounds you need to create your own sound.


CK combines the sounds of the Yamaha CP Stage Piano with the organ and synth focused YC Stage Keyboard to give you a totally new sonic palette. All with an intuitive interface that lets you focus on the music, not the menus. You’ll have piano, electric pianos, strings and brass plus a dedicated organ section and modern synth sounds. Onboard special effects to make it your own. There’s even Analog to Digital (A/D) Input to plug in a mic or another instrument, apply effects and record directly to your laptop. Not to mention CK has built-in speakers and batteries to take your new sound to new places. The options are nearly endless.

CK features an intuitive, 1 to 1 interface that gives you the freedom to explore your sound. Everything, from dedicated Organ controls to Synth and Effects controls, is designed to keep you making music instead of diving into menus.

All the world’s a stage – or studio. And CK is the portable keyboard ready to play anywhere at a moment’s notice. Take it camping and livestream by a stream. Play in the park. Or on stage in Central Park. Bring it to your neighbor’s BBQ and steal their guitar thunder. All without compromising sound quality or features.

Yamaha’s new highly portable CK61 series stage keyboard
Introducing the new Yamaha CK series comprised of two models CK88 and CK61. Building on the success of the stage keyboards from Yamaha’s renowned CP and YC series, the CK instruments feature a wide variety of sounds, intuitive controls, comprehensive sound design capabilities and highly portable formats.

Three parts for versatile sound design
As a descendant of the popular CP and YC series instruments, the Yamaha CK Series employs the wealth of their predecessors’ high-quality sounds to create an even more versatile sound set. Pianos, electric pianos, strings, brass, organs and modern synths – the CK series has it all. What is more, CK61 can layer and split these sounds into three zones or layered with each other to generate vivid, organic and expressive sounds. Each part can individually be edited and processed with the integrated effects, and the mixed sound goes through an additional master effects section for the final touches. From resonant filters and envelopes to various drive and modulation effects to delay, reverb and a master equalizer, the CK series offers every option to finetune sounds.

Intuitive controls for riveting performances
One aspect that has been praised about all Yamaha stage keyboards is the intuitive controls. The Yamaha CK61 continues this tradition, putting all important parameters at the players’ fingertips. The architecture of the three parts makes it possible to easily and quickly switch between sounds and combine them during a performance, adding life to a show. Customisable colour coding of the various switches keeps everything clear, signifying which parameter is active for which part. Dedicated drawbar controls allow for on-the-fly adjustments to the organ for natural expression and a truly “organic” feel. The effect section enables quick setting of parameters, making the effects an integral part of the performative sound design.
