"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 one 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 utilises unique Yamaha technologies to achieve smooth tonal transitions in response to the touch of the player.
Natural Wood X (NWX) keyboard
Natural Wood X (NWX) keyboards are created using Yamaha's unrivaled expertise of wood acquired through more than a century of crafting fine pianos. Just as with grand pianos, the material used for the NWX keyboards is cut from wood that has been carefully dried specifically for use in making musical instruments.
Utilising the same hammering system and spring-less mechanism as a grand piano, NWX keyboard action reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano from the heavy feel in the lower register to the lighter touch in the upper octaves. And the three-sensor configuration accurately senses and interprets the behaviour of the keyboard for a response and feels very similar to that of a grand piano.
