From the outstanding grand piano touch of the GH3X (Graded Hammer 3X) keyboard with escapement and Synthetic Ivory keytops to the intuitive design and integration with iPad, the Clavinova CVP-701 digital piano puts you in touch with your inner musician.
Two world class concert grands in one digital piano
Two world class pianos are contained within the CVP Clavinova, the CFX, Yamaha’s finest concert grand, and the Imperial from Bösendorfer. These two pianos are characterized by distinctive traits such as power, versatility, and subtlety.
Tuned to perfection by an experienced piano technician and having the sound from each key recorded individually, Clavinova captured the unique tonal character of each of these instruments.
Superb feel with a Graded Hammer 3X (GH3X) keyboard
Utilizing the same hammering system and spring-less mechanism as a grand piano, GH3X keyboard action reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano from the heavy feel in the lower register to the lighter touch in the upper octaves. It also features the three-sensor configuration, which accurately senses and interprets the behavior of the keyboard for a response and feel very similar to that of a grand piano.
Synthetic ivory key tops—a pleasure to play even after hours of performance
Synthetic Ivory keytops 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.
You won’t believe the sound is coming from a keyboard.
Yamaha’s Super Articulation Voices (SA) add genuine performance attributes of the real musical instruments as though they were being naturally performed by a virtuoso of that instrument instead of from the keys of a piano keyboard. Examples include “fret noise” or “body knocks” from a guitar or the “inhales”, “exhales” and glissandos from wind instruments.
All you need to know is the song. The Clavinova does the rest.
