SpecificationsFeatures Real Grand Expression - sound, touch and pedals -perfectly integrated to give you the sensation of playing a grand piano.
By harmonizing the three key elements of sound, touch and pedals in a single piano, the CVP-600 Series gives you the feeling that you are playing a grand piano.Achieves grand piano performanceand more. The RGE Sound Engine delivers the ultimate expressive capability.
The Clavinova uses the Real Grand Expression (RGE) Sound Engine,Yamaha's next-generation digital piano sound source. This lets you enjoy the playing response and expressive capability of a concert grand piano. It features a new Smooth Release function which uses a key-off velocity sensor to express note decay with great clarity, and clearly enunciates staccato notes with the resonance heard when lifting your fingers from the keys. RGE succeeds in capturing the essence of a piano performance to create grand piano-like, richly expressive experiences.Subtly reproduces resonance with the depth you hear from an acoustic grand piano.
The Clavinova subtly reproduces even the unique elements of an acoustic piano. The String Resonance feature expresses the overtone series of strings above and beyond the actual notes you're playing. Key-Off samples actually deliver the delicate change in sound acoustic pianos make the instant the damper falls back to the string. The addition of these sounds results in a tonal experience that is not only beautiful, but also natural and rich.Experience real piano touch with Yamahas Natural Wood keyboard.
The Clavinova NW (Natural Wood) keyboard could only be made by Yamaha, with woodworking techniques perfected from over a century of building fine acoustic pianos. Like a grand piano, the keys are made of solid wood that has undergone the long drying process required for use in a musical instrument. By selecting only the highest quality sections of each piece of wood, keys that are more resistant to warping and deforming than those of laminated wooden keyboards are created. The keys have three sensors, like the GH3 keyboard, that amplify sensitivity to the pianist playing them. Combined with the solid texture of wood, this provides an outstanding playing experience and performance.Synthetic ivory keytops remain tactile during long performances.
Pianists enjoy a touch that clings firmly to their fingers, just like the ivory keyboards historically used in top-class pianos. Synthetic ivory keytops feature a soft, slightly porous surface that gives all keys added grip and natural friction for improved ease in playing, especially during long performances or practice sessions. The keys smooth, refined texture imparts a feeling of luxury and is easy to clean.88-key Linear Graded Hammers reproduce a unique weight for each key, a first for digital pianos.
Each key in the Clavinova keyboard has a unique weight. On a traditional acoustic piano, the strings are short and narrow in the treble section and get progressively thicker and longer in the bass section. To produce an even sound, the hammers hitting the keys become larger from low to high. Thanks to the 88-key Linear Graded Hammers, this is the first digital piano to precisely recreate the keyboard touch of a grand piano where the weight, touch and return of every key is different. Since the experience is extremely close to that of a grand piano, you can achieve better playing technique.
The Hammers of all 88 keys have different weights.The GP Response Damper Pedal provides an authentic grand piano pedal feel.
The damper pedal is an important piano-playing element because it continuously varies the sound as you press it down. The Clavinova provides acoustic piano behavior by constantly detecting the amount of pedal travel and finely adjusting the amount of note elongation and reverberation. Additionally, the GP Response Damper Pedal reproduces the typical grand piano feeling, for example less resistance when starting to press and a heavy feeling when the pedal begins to take effect. As a result, players achieve greater control when operating the damper pedal.Personal Piano Room: your choice of piano and venue.
The CVP-600 Series offers a great new feature called Piano Room that you can use when you really want to concentrate on piano performance and savor your piano sound. You can select from four styles of acoustic pianos - Grand, Pop-Grand, Upright and Honky-Tonk - then you can select a performance location, such as concert hall, cathedral or stage.
