Piano sound, keyboard touch and pedal feel; the goal is to achieve the true expressive capability of a grand piano, which can

playing traditional piano music.

The Clavinova CLP Series next-generation piano sound source recorded from a world-class Yamaha full concert grand piano. A keyboard that allows you to fully express emotions in sound. Clavinova has not only refined all performance-related elements, it has unified them into a piano capable of reproducing the player's true expression. The result is true grand piano-like experience we call "Real Grand Expression". With a beautiful appearance inspired by acoustic piano cabinetry, these are digital pianos that refine everything you want, to the highest level, for enjoyable piano performance.

Real grand piano sound, just for you

With two world-renowned concert grand pianos available at the touch of a button, the CLP Series lets you choose the perfect piano tone for the music you want to play. Offering far more than just sampled sounds, the CLP-500 Series reproduces the Yamaha CFX concert grand and the legendary Bӧsendorfer Imperial in meticulous detail.


The powerful tone of the acclaimed CFX

Yamaha's flagship 9' concert grand piano, the CFX, offers sparkling highs and a powerful resonant bass with a sound that projects to the furthest reaches of any concert hall. The CFX was played by the winner of the prestigious International Chopin Competition in 2010, and has since gained recognition as one of the greatest concert grands of modern times.

The legendary sound of a Bösendorfer Imperial

Crafted in Vienna using traditional techniques exclusive to Bösendorfer, this legendary grand piano features a characteristic warm tone known as the "Viennese Sound", perfect for playing stately melodies from composers such as Brahms and Beethoven.

Specifications vary depending on model


More than just great sound

There is more to a great performance than sound alone; any pianist knows that playing well relies on everything from the touch of the keyboard to the resistance of the pedals to even the aesthetics of the instrument design. The CLP Series offers grand piano touch and tone together with a well-crafted, traditional, upright piano cabinetry.

Select models utilize Yamaha's acclaimed Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) technology to reproduce the resonance of strings for every note on the grand piano keyboard in nuanced detail.

A grand piano to the touch

With the newly-developed Natural Wood X (NWX) and Graded Hammer 3X (GH3X) keyboards, the CLP Series brings a new level of realism to digital piano performance. There are precision counterweights for perfect key balance when playing delicately even at the back of the key. The new escapement feel reproduces the mechanical release when the keys of a grand piano are pressed gently. Just like an acoustic grand, every key is weighted differently; keys in the bass register have a heavier feel that gets progressively lighter as you move up the keyboard.

This passion for authenticity is also evident in the GP Response Damper Pedal, which constantly detects pedal pressure and return. The resistance curve of a concert grand piano ensures that your feet won't know the difference.

Practice made perfect

The CLP Series makes practice something to look forward to with practical features that make it easy to improve your performance.


Natural sound image—even using headphones

Unique to Yamaha, the Stereophonic Optimizer adjusts the spacing of the sound and the separation from the piano when listening via the headphones, resulting in a spacious sound image that will inspire you to play for hours at a time.

A comprehensive range of keyboard Voices

In addition to its world-class grand pianos, the Clavinova CLP Series boast a library of impressive Voices including an upright piano, electric pianos and a variety of organs. Enjoy the freedom to choose the ideal Voice for the genre of music you want to play.

Easy-to-use interface

An easy-to-read LCD and intuitive layout enable simple operation of your Clavinova, giving you more time to focus on playing.

Time-tested practice aids

Train your hands with some of the most widely accepted exercises in the world using proven practice methods from Hanon, Bayer, Czerny and Burgmüller. With the CLP Series, you can use lesson functions to focus on each hand individually, or display compatible scores on your iPad using Yamaha's exclusive NoteStar application.

Play along with a variety of rhythms

Pick any number of high-quality rhythms, including various jazz, pop and latin patterns, to add new dimension to your performances and enhance your timing.
