Two world class concert grands in one digital piano

Two Pianos in One

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.

Natural Wood X (NWX) keyboards are created using Yamaha’s unrivalled expertise of wood acquired through more than a century of crafting fine pianos. Just as with grand pianos, the material used for NWX keyboards is cut from wood that has been carefully dried specifically for use in making musical instruments.

Utilizing the same hammering system and spring-less mechanism as a grand piano, NWX 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. The three-sensor configuration accurately senses and interprets the behavior of the keyboard for a response and feels very similar to that of a grand piano.

NWX keyboards also feature an escapement mechanism that allows the player to re-strike a note without the key returning to the full upright position, just like the keyboard of a grand piano.

Key Counter Weights

Counterweights are embedded in the keys of a grand piano to balance the weight of the hammers and offer more precise control when playing delicately at low volumes. The Clavinova features carefully-adjusted counterweights for improved playability when playing pianissimo and better key return in rapid passages. The keyboard of the Clavinova has been fine-tuned to offer optimal balance, emphasizing its superb playability and grand piano response.
