"I never take the time to write about my experience with any company. I mean, why should you not expect that a company would provide a good product and service. But in the case of Kraft Music, I feel compelled to let others know how exceptional this company is. This is a company who still does business the old fashioned way. I cannot recommend them enough and I do to anyone looking for quality instruments at a great price." - Brian, MA
"I must say, this was the easiest internet order I ever made. I ordered the bundle on Sunday, Oct. 18 and it arrived Thursday, Oct. 22nd. The items shipped by UPS arrived in perfect condition. I will highly recommend your site and thanks for the great delivery time and service!" - Deb, PA
The Compact Upright, CUP-2, the latest addition to Kurzweil's growing family of home digital pianos, offers a contradiction that most players will surely welcome; a top of the line, powerful sound system in what seems to be an impossibly small, discreet enclosure.
Using the same chip technology as the acclaimed PC3 Series, the CUP-2 brings professional studio sound quality into your home. The CUP-2's 88 onboard sounds have been taken directly from the PC3, and represent the best of nearly two decades of Kurzweil sound design and engineering.
The famous Kurzweil Triple Strike Grand Piano is front and center (with a dedicated Grand Piano button), but the CUP-2 also provides world-class sounds in every category; rich strings and orchestral sounds, realistic electric pianos, drums, basses, guitars and synthesized sounds.
While the CUP-2 leaves a very small footprint in any room, it can also fill any room, great or small, with spectacular concert hall sound quality with its 140 watt bi-amped speaker system, the same system used in the top of the line X-Pro Upright.
A Marvel of Design, Sound & Styling
Heads will turn at the CUP-2's modern streamlined cabinet. Beautifully designed and standing approximately 42" high, the CUP-2 will complement any home, school, or studio environment. It incorporates a slow close fall board which doubles as a music desk. The sleek onetouch slide out control panel allows easy access to all of your functions. The Kurzweil CUP-2 uses the proprietary MARA® chip, giving you up to 32 layers per voice with exceptional digital signal processing. With its specially designed 130-watt bi-amped 4-speaker system, the CUP-2 leaves a small footprint in any room, but fills any size space with spectacular sound. Whether classical or popular music, Kurzweil's design and ingenuity set the stage for something remarkable.
Genuine "Wood Key" Graded Hammer Action
The CUP-2 uses an 88-note "wood embedded" graded hammer action, heavier in the lower end to progressively lighter in the upper end. The Grand Touch® TP40-Wood action by Fatar of Italy uses a special sandwich design of (Kostil® Wood). This sophisticated action with an increased throw perfectly balances response and momentum. The action is perfectly weighted in 4 separate zones using Kurzweil's custom parameters of velocity mapping, balancing response and momentum for inspiringly true piano feel.
The Next Generation Of Custom Sound Chip Technology
After years of development by Kurzweil's Boston-based engineers, Kurzweil's next generation custom chip technology is now included throughout their new piano lineup. Designed specifically to the highest musical and audio quality standards, this technology offers a range of deep expression and spectacular sound unlike any other.
PC3 Series Technology
Features hand-picked programs taken directly from the acclaimed PC3 Product Series.
Depth Is The Key To A Realistic Piano Sound
Using Kurzweil's Triple-Strike Grand Piano sample and up to 32 layers per voice, the sounds are unequalled in dynamic range, expressiveness, and realism. And multiple ambience effects realistically enhance those sounds just like a fine concert hall.
Realistic Orchestral Instrument Sounds
Every instrument has unique sonic characteristics governed by its physical structure, and Kurzweil has captured and recreated these faithfully. The Kurzweil digital pianos provide exceptional control, responsiveness, and dynamic range, with the ability to recreate other instrument sounds as realistically as they do piano.
