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 utilising 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.
Smooth tonal transformations perfectly matched to key pressure
Pianists can change the volume of the sound as well as its dynamics to achieve both mellow and bright tones by simply changing the pressure they apply to the keys.
The Clavinova features long, carefully-sampled recordings of notes on a piano, reproduces them in rich detail and utilizes unique Yamaha technologies to achieve smooth tonal transitions in response to the touch of the player.
From staccato to legato - superbly expressive sound that responds to the player's touch
Featuring Yamaha Smooth Release technology,it offers the crisp tone heard when playing staccato as well as the lingering sound produced by releasing the keys more. This provides finely-nuanced response to the pianist's playing.
Graded Hammer 3X (GH3X) keyboard
Utilizing the same hammering system and spring-less mechanism as a grand piano, the GH3X keyboard action accurately reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano from the heavy feel in the lower register to the lighter touch in the upper octaves. They also feature the three-sensor configuration, which accurately sense and interpret the behaviour of the keyboard for a response and feel very similar to that of a grand piano.
The newly developed GH3X keyboards also feature an escapement mechanism that reproduces a slight clicking sensation near the bottom of the key dip, and they have been designed in such a way that the click is discernible only on the lightest keystrokes, similar to the keyboard of a grand piano.
Multi-track Song Recorder
The recording function featured in Clavinova digital pianos allows you to record your performances* with a single touch, which is useful when you want to review your playing objectively. Additionally, you can record up to 16 tracks for simultaneous playback, so different hands can be recorded separately or overdub parts with different Voices. (* Recordings are made in MIDI format, and can also be recorded to USB flash memory. Compatible software is required for playback of recorded data on a computer)
A comprehensive range of keyboard Voices
In addition to its world-class grand pianos, the Clavinova CLP Series boast a library of impressive Voices including, electric pianos and a variety of organs. Enjoy the freedom to choose the ideal Voice for the genre of music you want to play.
The ability to adjust performance volume is extremely useful at home where players may not always be able to play at high volume levels. Often at low volumes, both bass and treble may become difficult to hear. To counter this, Clavinova is equipped with Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC), which adjusts the sound automatically, allowing players to enjoy

- 256-note polyphony
- Graded Hammer 3X (GH3X) keyboard with synthetic ivory keytops and escapement
