The Yamaha Clavinova CLP525 PE Digital Piano is part of Yamaha's new Clavinova Traditional range. It features a contemporary cabinet in a stunning high gloss polished ebony finish.The Clavinova range contains the latest in digital piano technology and makes use of some fantastic new features that simulate the feeling of playing a grand piano. The Synthetic Ivory Keys create the sensation of playing an acoustic piano as they feel just like the ones of a Grand Piano.
Real Grand Expression: Sound, touch and pedals, all perfectly integrated to give you the sensation of playing a grand piano.
Real Grand Expression; a phrase that defines the expressive capability of Clavinova. It is the key components of the sound, the touch and the pedals, together with the application of technology developed through a history of acoustic piano manufacturing. With Real Grand Expression, these elements are combined perfectly into a single instrument, creating the exact sound you want through the touch of the keys and the feel of the pedals. When you play a Clavinova, you can imagine that you are playing a grand piano.
Outstanding piano sound
It starts with a grand piano...
Grand piano voices are created by recording the sounds of a Yamaha CFIIIS concert grand piano. A single piano was selected and then tuned to the finest possible standard by a master piano technician. The sounds were then recorded in meticulous detail, resulting in a superbly harmonious piano tone.
Smooth tonal transitions, perfectly matched to the player's touch
Variations of sound according to touch
A pianist changes the volume and dynamics of the sound by varying the pressure applied to the keys. A Clavinova responds perfectly to give the player an outstanding level of performance control. By using long, carefully-sampled recordings of notes on a piano and unique Yamaha technologies to achieve smooth tonal transitions, rich sonic detail is delivered in response to the touch of the player.
From staccato to legato, superbly expressive sound that responds to the player's touch
Featuring Yamaha's Smooth Release technology, Clavinova recreates the crisp tone heard when playing staccato as well as the lingering sound produced by releasing the keys slowly.
Left: Rapidly lifting your fingers (staccato), Right: Slowly lifting your fingers (legato)
Powerful polyphony ensures that more complex passages of music can be played without notes cutting off.
Superb playability and feel
Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) keyboard
Using knowledge gained from many years of piano manufacturing, Yamaha Clavinova has an incredibly realistic keyboard feel that recreates the sensation of playing an acoustic instrument. By using a similar hammer mechanism (with no springs) as that found in a grand piano, the GH3 keyboard action reproduces the touch of an acoustic instrument, from the heavier feel in the lower register to the lighter touch in the upper octaves. It also features a three-sensor configuration which accurately senses and interprets the behaviour of the keyboard to create a response and feel very much like that of a grand piano.
Synthetic Ivory key tops
Synthetic Ivory key tops reproduce the tactile surface of the Ivory keyboards once used in acoustic pianos. It features highly absorbent material that prevents fingers from slipping even after hours of performing, while retaining the ideal texture and feel.
Keyboard Stabilizers for improved stability and durability
The keyboard fulfills the vital role of transforming the emotion from your fingertips into sound and therefore, it must respond in a stable and consistent manner. That is why Yamaha has fitted keyboard stabilizers to all 88 keys, giving the player a natural feel and improving the stability and durability of the keyboard.
A natural feel throughout the length of the key
The keys on a Clavinova are constructed so that the fulcrum is as far from the key tip as possible. This improves playability and comfort, especially when pressing at the back of the key. This construction provides good key travel, even when performing pieces played mainly on the black keys and the backs of the white keys, allowing nuanced variations in touch and broadening your expressive range.
Clavinova key tips are far from the fulcrum, so the keys sink smoothly when played near the base
The mechanics of superior sound
Full-bodied tone and resonance
The sound of a Clavinova is calibrated in fine detail, with speaker positioning and body materials checked to ensure that the entire instrument resonates optimally. To create a sound field that is very close to that of a grand piano, the Clavinova features tone escapements in several locations throughout the body that allow the sound from the speakers to be projected to the listener without being trapped inside the instrument.
The body of the Clavinova contains Acoustic Optimizers that regulate the flow of sound and control tone. A new technology developed from Yamaha's intimate knowledge of the acoustic properties of musical instruments, Acoustic Optimizers deliver a natural, smooth sound across the entire keyboard.
Multi-track song recording
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 or archive your playing. You can record up to 2 tracks for simultaneous playback, so that each hand can be recorded separately or parts recorded using different sounds.
A comprehensive range of keyboard voices
In addition to pianos, the Clavinova CLP Series boasts an impressive library of additional voices including electric pianos, strings and organs. Enjoy the freedom to choose the ideal voice for the genre of music you want to play.
IAC (Intelligent Acoustic Control)
The ability to adjust performance volume is extremely useful at home where players may not always be able to play at high volume levels. However, at low volumes, 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 balanced sound at any volume level.
