Yamaha Clavinova Digital Pianos

REAL PIANOS REVEAL THE ESSENCE OF PIANO PLAYING

The finest digital pianos that Yamaha makes, Clavinova pianos satisfy the needs and desires of piano lovers around the world.

The amazingly accurate grand piano-like feel is the result of the skills and instincts Yamaha has developed through many years of manufacturing acoustic pianos, paired with cutting-edge technology.

To experience the pure joy of playing the piano, look no further than Clavinova.

Yamaha used all-new samples for the voices of two world-class concert grand pianos—the bright, brilliant voice of the Yamaha CFX, and the warm, deep resonance of the Bösendorfer Imperial. The highly distinctive sounds of these pianos feature lush harmonics and vivid resonance created from the sympathetic vibrations of the strings and soundboard, faithfully delivered in response to your articulation and pedaling. Richer tonal gradations than ever before give you an even greater range of dynamic expression. Additionally, binaural sampling was used to create the voices of the two famed pianos. Even through headphones, the voices are natural and full, preserving the acoustic sound to such a degree that you forget that you’re not hearing the sound straight from the instrument itself.

Experience the ability to play an even broader range of songs the way they were meant to be played. CLP-700 Series converts the slightest variations in touch into a limitless range of sound that captures your individuality as a musician. Thanks to the latest technology, CLP-700 Series is as expressive as grand pianos, and offer a more wonderful playing experience than ever before, taking your expectations of what a digital piano can do to higher heights.

Experience the distinct characteristics of two concert grand pianos

Yamaha used all-new samples for the voices of two world-class concert grand pianos—the bright, brilliant voice of the Yamaha CFX, and the warm, deep resonance of the Bösendorfer Imperial. The highly distinctive sounds of these pianos feature lush harmonics and vivid resonance created from the sympathetic vibrations of the strings and soundboard, faithfully delivered in response to your articulation and pedaling.

Acoustic design that realistically simulates the sound image of a grand piano

When you play a grand piano, you experience the sensation of being enveloped in the resonance of the instrument. The high-end models of the CLP-700 Series use Grand Acoustic Imaging—advanced acoustic technology that simulates the sound image and sound field of a grand piano. The technology recreates the full experience of playing a grand piano, with the sensation of the hammers striking the strings in front of you, the reverberations from the strings dissipating away from you, and the sense of depth that comes from the sound resonating from the soundboard. The keys to creating such a realistic environment are the optimal placement and balance of the individual bass, mid, and treble speakers, and the addition of transducers. Each and every tone sounds like it was emitted from the proper place on an actual grand piano, and the transducers simulate the expansion of the sound to fill the venue. The cases of the grand piano models are even used to simulate the radiation of grand piano sounds, creating a lush listening environment for the audience as well.

Period instrument voices open the door to the world of classical music

CLP-700 Series is Yamaha’s first instruments to be equipped with the voices of the fortepiano, the predecessor to the modern piano. The sounds emitted by a fortepiano are simpler than those of a modern piano, and decay much more rapidly. Hearing the sounds of the instruments played when the likes of Mozart, Beethoven, and Chopin were composing their songs should illuminate the original intent behind the notes on the page. Here is a novel opportunity to communicate with historical composers by playing these period instruments.
