Real Grand Expression
This phrase defines the expressive capability of Clavinova. It is not only the full realisation of the sound, the touch and the pedals, but the application of technologies nurtured by crafting acoustic pianos to perfectly integrate these three elements into a single piano. This piano produces that exact sound you want through the touch of the keys and the feel of the pedals. As you play, you will truly feel as though you are playing a grand piano.
The tone of the finest concert grand pianos in the world
The CFX - Yamaha's finest concert grand selected and played by the winner of the 2010 International Chopin Piano Competition - and the Imperial from Bösendorfer - a brand held in high esteem by pianists throughout its long history - are renowned pianos characterized by distinctive traits such as power, versatility, subtlety, lightness and mellowness.
Both of these superb pianos' Voices are featured in the Clavinova. Tuned to perfection by a highly experienced piano technician with the sound from each key sampled individually, Clavinova truly captures the unique tonal character of each of these outstanding instruments.
Reproducing the Damper Resonance and deep reverberation of an acoustic piano
The Clavinova faithfully reproduces the sound of an acoustic piano utilizing features like String Resonance to emulate the mellow tonal colour that occurs when strings react to one another. The result is a beautiful tone with rich, deep reverberation.
In addition to the reverberation of the strings themselves, Damper Resonance reproduces the broad, deep sound field of an acoustic piano. It also mirrors the tonal changes that result when a damper pedal on a grand piano is depressed. It includes sounds such as those emitted from the key bed and emulates the cumulative resonance that occurs when all of these sounds blend together.
Synthetic ivory keytops - a pleasure to play even after hours of performance
Reproduces the gentle, tactile surface of the ivory keyboards once used in only the finest pianos. It features highly-absorbent material that prevents fingers from slipping even after hours of performing, while retaining the ideal texture and feel.
Full-body resonance, just like an acoustic piano
Similar to an acoustic piano, the Clavinova is calibrated carefully, with speaker positioning and body materials checked to ensure that the entire instrument resonates optimally. For a sound image that is very close to the grand piano, these instruments feature Tone Escapement in several locations throughout the body that allow the sound from the speakers to be projected to the listener?s ears without being trapped inside the instrument.
Acoustic Optimizer - Regulation to ensure a balanced tone
The body of the Clavinova contains Acoustic Optimizers that regulate the flow of sound and control tone. A new technology springing from Yamaha's intimate knowledge of the acoustic properties of the interiors of musical instruments, Acoustic Optimizers deliver natural, smooth feel and tone across the entire keyboard.
An easy-to-read LCD and intuitive layout enable simple operation of your Clavinova, giving you more time to focus on playing.
An abundance of piano lesson pieces
