Kurzweil CUP-2

The Compact Upright Piano 2 by Kurzweil looks just like the real thing but its dimensions are smaller than an average acoustic piano. It therefore suits those looking for a quality piano but who lack space. Despite its compact design it packs in a full-sized keyboard and a very powerful sound system.


The Kurzweil CUP-2 uses the same sound chip as the PC3 series of controller arrangers, this gives it an exceptional sound quality. The 88 voices are also taken from the PC3 series with the Triple Strike Grand Piano given its own button for quick recall. The Split and Layer functions enable two voices to be selected at the same time and there is relative volume control. The CUP-2 has 64-note polyphony.

The speaker system is 4-way stereo and is powered by immense 140W amps, giving it a massive sound that can easily fill a concert venue without the need to link in extra speakers.


The CUP-2 is built with the Fatar TP/40W keyboard, a wood keyboard made to copy the hammer action and weight of an acoustic piano’s keyboard. It is fully weighted and graded so that the bass keys feel heavier than the treble. It is also touch sensitive, which means that the dynamics of the notes are subject to the power with which the pianist plays the key with, just as on a real piano.

There are 3-pedals built into the CUP-2, soft, sustain, and sostenuto.


The CUP-2 includes a pull-out control panel to maximise the beautiful design of the piano and ensure its similar appearance to an acoustic upright. Features accessed through this include reverb and chorus effects, again taken from the PC3 and so are of the highest quality.

There is a single track recorder with enough memory to store 9 recordings. For accompaniment the CUP-2 includes 51 demo songs pre-set into the piano, or for a rhythmic backdrop to the music there are 78 different drum patterns. There are 3 user pre-set buttons that allows the player to configure their own preferred sound set-ups and access them immediately.

The connections on the CUP-2 are composed of Aux In/Out, MIDI In/Out, and a USB type B connection that allows direct connection with a computer sequencer without the need to install software drivers. 2 headphone jacks are located on the front control panel.
