Clavinova CLP Series
Everything you could want in your first piano. Grand Expression Modeling delivers expressive capabilities approaching those of a grand piano, along with the voices of two of the world’s finest grands: the Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial.
Yamaha’s latest keyboard action combines a broad dynamic range and responsive touch, offering precise control over a wide tonal range, while the consistent grand piano hammers and synthetic-ivory and ebony keys provide a comfortable and slip-resistant playing experience akin to that of a grand piano.
Escapement mechanism of Clavinova keyboards
Clavinova keyboards are equipped with an escapement mechanism, emulating the behavior of a grand piano, where the hammers move away from the strings after striking them to avoid interference with string vibration. This mechanism creates a subtle clicking sensation that is perceptible only on the lightest keystrokes, akin to a grand piano’s keyboard. Carefully calibrated to balance key repetition and response, the Clavinova keyboards offer an enhanced playing experience without compromising performance.
Clavinova pianos offer exceptional playability, versatile functions, and a sleek design that seamlessly combines a compact form with modern aesthetics. With a focus on creating a natural and immersive playing experience, unnecessary elements are eliminated from the player’s field of vision, allowing them to feel as if they are sitting in front of an acoustic piano. Yamaha’s consideration for players who transition between Clavinova and grand pianos ensures a comfortable and worry-free performance experience. Moreover, Clavinova pianos effortlessly blend into everyday life, with contemporary accents and color options to complement various interior designs and lifestyles.
Grand Expression Modeling
The CLP-700 Series introduces Grand Expression Modeling, enabling pianists to achieve an extensive range of tonal expression similar to that of a grand piano by precisely controlling intensity, speed, and depth of key presses, allowing for techniques like trills, legato, and melody emphasis, enhancing the performance experience and facilitating learning and exploration of various musical techniques with joy and expressive freedom.
The sound of some of the finest concert grand pianos in the world – Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial
The Clavinova grand pianos in the CLP Series feature meticulously sampled sounds from world-renowned concert grand pianos, including Yamaha’s renowned CFX and Bösendorfer’s Imperial. With attention to detail, Yamaha captures the full tonal range of each key, faithfully reproducing the distinct characteristics and expressive qualities of these beloved concert grands, allowing pianists to experience the impressive, expressive sound of the CFX and the rich warmth of the Imperial in their own playing.
Virtual Resonance Modeling
Clavinova pianos feature Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM), an innovative technology that faithfully reproduces the intricate sympathetic resonance found in grand pianos. By simulating the complex interaction of vibrations between strings, soundboard, and other components, Clavinova pianos deliver a richly varied and immersive sound experience, including the subtle nuances of damper movements and the resonance of various piano elements. Enjoy the authentic dynamics and deep sympathetic sounds akin to playing a grand piano with Clavinova.
A fully immersive concert grand experience—even with headphones
The CLP-725 features binaural sampling of the Yamaha CFX, capturing the authentic piano sound from the perspective of the pianist’s ears. This method ensures the Clavinova piano reproduces the ambience and natural resonance of acoustic pianos, creating a grand piano experience even when using headphones. Pianists can immerse themselves in the music without feeling the presence of headphones, thanks to the lifelike sound quality. Additionally, the Stereophonic Optimizer function replicates the natural sound diffusion of piano effects, closely resembling binaural sampling for non-CFX piano voices.
