YAMAHA CLAVINOVA

In 1983, Yamaha introduced the world to a new kind of piano. A compact electric keyboard that could faithfully recreate the power and performance of a concert grand. Nearly four decades later, the Yamaha Clavinova continues to inspire players of all levels with its authentic acoustic action, elegant design and the unmistakable tone of the finest concert grand pianos ever made. It’s no wonder TIME included the Clavinova on its list of the most influential technologies of the last fifty years.

In 2008, Downtown Piano Works opened as an exclusive Yamaha only dealership. Our expertise and tremendous available stock make us an ideal place to learn about and choose a Yamaha piano. Available for purchase directly online, or by appointment in person at Downtown Piano Works, the Clavinova line of digital pianos offer something for everyone. We look forward to providing you with the most up to date information, competitive pricing and best possible service.

 CLP 700 SERIES

The soul of a Yamaha acoustic piano. The heart of Yamaha innovation. The Clavinova CLP blurs the line between acoustic and digital with authentic grand piano touch, tone and power. All with intuitive controls that let you do things only Yamaha digital pianos can do.

FEATURES

The advanced binaural recording process recreates the tone, power and nuanced colors of the flagship Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial concert grands. The resulting sound is so natural you'll almost forget you're playing a digital piano. Weighted, graded keys reproduce the authentic touch, response and natural key return of a grand piano while the Smooth Release Technology captures the colors and nuance when playing staccato, legato and everything in between.  Synthetic ebony and ivory keytops have a natural, comfortable feel that players of all levels can't wait to get their hands on. Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) recreates the resonance of the soundboard, rim and frame to emulate the natural feeling of an acoustic piano... even when playing with headphones. The Clavinova CLP can do more than ever. Now it's easy to access all of it with your iOS or Android devices. The Yamaha Smart Pianist controller app lets you adjust settings, choose Voices, record performances and more. The CLP-700 Series are Yamaha's first instruments to be equipped with the voices of the fortepiano. This 18th century predecessor to the modern piano was played by master composers such as Mozart, Chopin, Beethoven, and Scarlatti. Piano and Strings. Bass and guitar. French Horn and Cello. Dual and Split Voice modes let you play two Voices at the same time for nearly infinite musical inspiration.
