More musical enjoyment for one and all
Yamaha applied 100 years’ experience in crafting acoustic pianos to bring you the CVP Series, which, like all Clavinovas are, first and foremost, pianos. For unrivalled sonic realism there’s Yamaha’s proprietary Dynamic Stereo Sampling AWM tone generation. As a further step towards providing the ultimate piano sound, CVP Series models also feature stereo samples of a specially selected Yamaha CFIIIS concert grand. Plus the GH (Graded Hammer effect) for incredibly natural touch response. But that’s not all. The new extra-large LCD makes operation incredibly easy and offers a score display for more performance versatility and learning support than ever. Which adds up to more musical pleasure for the whole family. All from beautiful, naturally finished instruments that are at home in any modern interior.

Sweet! Live! Cool! Natural! And Other Great Voices
