Parts for CP70
« on: September 30, 2013, 07:18:25 AM »
Hey guys,

here I've got a totally rocked CP70B, which needs a complete overhaul. New strings, new tolex, new keybushing, etc. pp. I don't want to refurbish this one because I don't think, it's worth the effort.
That's why I want to split this one for parts.

If you need anything, just let me know. I've got the legs, legplates and sustainpedal too.

I'm located in Germany. International shipping is no problem.


Thanks,
Chris

I would love to restore one of those.  Definitely beyond repair?

Mike.

These are extremely difficult to tune- they were fine stage substitutes before digital pianos were made, but I don't recommend restoring one unless you have restrung pianos before, and know that it will still be extremely difficult to tune,even with new strings. New bass strings would be super expensive, and you will need the old bass strings to send out for duplication.

I am with Steve on this.  Restringing a CP70 is a pain, and you need the proper piano tuner's tools to do it... especially to get a proper becket and neat coil on the tuning pins.   Generally only the wound strings need to be replaced since those exhibit the most inharmonicity with age.  The wire strings are generally OK.

Yamaha published their own stretch tuning chart for that piano.   Those strings in the lower half of the keyboard act more like bars due to their tension, length, and thinkness, and therefore have a lot of inharmonicity in the overtones.  This is why they are nasty to tune.

 If you really want to restring one, however, you can get a set of wound strings from Mapes Piano Wire Co. for about $350-$400.  They are very familiar with CPxx strings... make sure you specify the exact model when ordering as there were some differences.

Hi there,

I would be interested in the pedal if you can tell me what the shipping would be to 5086 South Australia?

Cheers,

Chris

Shouldn't that be relatively easy to make- at least to hold you over until you find an original?

You could use wooden dowel, or maybe cymbal stand parts?

Well, I don't have the chains to keep the pedal positioned so it tends to move on me when i dig in to my shows so I would like the threaded one but I think I will try to fab something in the mean time.

You can do the old drummers trick and mount the pedal on a board or a rug that you can put your stool on. Your weight will keep it from moving around..
