Yamaha CLP 675 Digital piano

We decided to replace our Kawai acoustic piano with the Yamaha CLP 675 digital piano which allows us to play at lower volumes. We bought the Kawai piano over 20 years ago at ‘Piano & Vleugels Eindhoven‘ (the Netherlands), and now could replace the Kawai with the Yamaha from the same shop. This is really a nice shop, nice people, and great service.

  • Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial grand piano samples
    • The CFX is Yamaha’s flagship 9’ concert grand piano, and offers sparkling highs and a powerful resonant bass
    • Originally founded in 1828, Bösendorfer is the only manufacturer in the world still utilizing the Viennese tradition of hand-crafted design that produces the uniquely warm bass, singing treble and rich tonal colors known as the “Viennese Sound”. The development of Bösendorfer pianos has been influenced by such famed composers as Brahms and Johann Strauss. In 2008, Bösendorfer became part of the Yamaha Group and in 2014, the revered tone of the Bösendorfer Imperial was featured in the Clavinova CLP Series.

  • Improved VRM (Virtual Resonance Modeling)
    • In a grand piano, sound resonates throughout the body of the instrument, producing a rich reverberation that envelops the listener in sound. This phenomena is reproduced perfectly in the Clavinova through VRM.
  • Smooth Release
  • Key-Off samples
  • String Resonance
  • Damper Resonance
  • 256-note polyphony
  • 36 Voices
  • GrandTouch keyboard with synthetic ebony and ivory keytops (wood is used for the white keys)
    • Pianists prefer grand pianos not only because of the way they sound, but also because of the way the keys respond to their touch. When grand piano keys are struck, there is a certain weight or resistance to the touch. Similarly, when keys are released, they return to a resting position based on the balance between the key and the internal mechanics of the keyboard. It is difficult to reproduce the natural return of the keys of a grand piano in a digital piano, due to differences in the mechanics. Yamaha carefully studied these characteristics when developing the GrandTouch keyboard, and has now reproduced this fine balance in the Clavinova digital piano.
    • Our fingers are more sensitive than we think, and for pianists, the texture of the piano keys is extremely important. The GrandTouch keyboard features white keys made from the highest quality synthetic ivory, developed independently by Yamaha. The black keys are finished in synthetic ebony. Synthetic ivory keytops reproduce the tactile surface of the real ivory keyboards once used in older acoustic pianos. It features highly absorbent material that prevents fingers from slipping while retaining the ideal texture and feel.
