Yamaha Clavinova CLP 745 Digital Piano
Created for experienced pianists and beginners alike, this exquisite new CLP 745 digital piano offers endless opportunities for learning, creative musical expression and simple fun. The new instruments come with a maximum of natural playability, complete with the breath-taking sound quality that Yamaha has achieved through decades of acoustic concert piano craftsmanship.
Real Grand Expression 2 pays special attention to the sensitivity of the player. Even the tiniest nuances of the keystroke from touching to triggering the tone are converted into an unlimited variety of sounds. Another innovation is the Grand Expression Modeling, which translates even the finest sound variations produced by the player as if being played on an acoustic concert grand piano. This combined with the improved Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM), ensures an incredibly detailed reproduction of the complex interplay and smallest nuances created by acoustic concert pianos. These interactions consist of keystrokes, hammer movement, dampers, pedals, strings and finally, the resonance of the entire sound body. The new CLP-700 series offers all players an unforgettable, concert grand piano experience, while also being much more than just an alternative to an acoustic instrument.
The expertly crafted keyboards convey an outstanding level of authenticity and rich harmony. This is in part achieved by the different key lengths, counterweights and the pivot point between the white and black keys. In addition, they offer a high degree of expressive control in individually shaping the tone from Pianissimo to Fortissimo.
Another fascinating feature of the CLP 745 can be seen in the intricate samples of the exclusive Yamaha CFX and the Bösendorfer Imperial grand pianos. Their sound was recorded in a new procedure, as well as the coveted Binaural sampling of both concert grand pianos for playing with headphones. This innovative technology conveys a sense of space as if not wearing headphone at all and offers hours of musical fun while providing hearing protection even with louder volumes.
A first as well: The new CLP series now comes with added Fortepiano sounds for all aficionados of 18th and 19th century Fortepiano music.
The Allure of the CLP 700 Series
