The Essence of Piano Playing – Yamaha Clavinova

The word ‘Clavinova’ has, over many years, become synonymous with digital pianos. Yamaha’s flagship range of digital pianos are designed with an express focus on feel and sound. The accurate grand piano-like feel is the result of the skills and instincts Yamaha has developed through many years of manufacturing acoustic pianos, so it’s little wonder how they get it as right as they do.

The Yamaha Clavinova series is divided into 3 ranges, the CLP, CSP, and CVP, with each range aimed at a different player and use-case. Let’s take a look through the range to help you find the Clavinova for you!

Clavinova CLP

The Clavinova CLP pianos are simple, no-nonsense, high-quality digital pianos. Yamaha have stripped away many of the interactive and expandable features of the rest of the Clavinova range to offer a playing experience as close to that of an acoustic piano as possible. Playabilty, sensitivity, and sound quality is the name of the game with the Yamaha CLP range.

Featuring the latest GrandTouch technology keyboards with a broad dynamic range of touch and response on the level of a grand piano. Excellent consistency and nuanced expression give the player full control over touch.


Yamaha’s Grand Expression Modeling is their outstanding new technology that enables the pianist to use their techniques to produce the limitless tonal variation unique to grand pianos. The ability to vary the intensity and speed of touch to produce different tones adds new dimensions to the joy of piano playing.

Sound Quality

The CLP range reproduces the dynamic range and diverse tone variation of the CFX and the Bösendorfer Imperial, while the new binaural sampling provides the full ambience of the sound. to add to this, Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) intricately simulates the full sympathetic sounds created by the overlapping resonance of the strings and body of a grand piano. Yamaha simply leave no stone unturned when it comes to sound quality.

Clavinova CSP

Combining incredibly high-end digital pianos with unmatched learning platforms is the aim of the CSP range. With beginners in mind, the CSP range offers integration with the Yamaha Smart Pianist app for smart devices, and descending Stream Lights that show which keys to play next while learning.

If you’re a beginner or are looking to get back into playing, the CSP range is the perfect digital piano.
