Yamaha Clavinova CLP 795GP
The CLP Series of digital pianos utilizes cutting-edge technology to recreate the experience of performing on a grand piano, allowing the pianist to play the keys with many variations of speed and depth to achieve an unlimited variation in tone and create uniquely personal performances. With expressive capabilities approaching those of a grand piano, the Yamaha Clavinova CLP 795GP is sure to make playing the piano so much more enjoyable than ever before.
The Yamaha CLP 795GP features the latest GrandTouch/GrandTouch-S keyboard, with a broad dynamic range of touch and response on the level of a grand piano.
Excellent consistency and nuanced expression give the pianist the utmost control over touch. The GrandTouch keyboard also features wooden keys, showcasing Yamaha’s expertise with wood for pianos. Just as with grand piano keyboards, the solid wood is cut from the very best parts of well-dried lumber, making the keys more resistant to warping than keyboards made of laminated wood. The wooden texture and structure of the keys create a more grand piano-like feel.
Grand Expression Modelling is a groundbreaking new technology that enables the pianist to use their techniques to produce the limitless tonal variation unique to grand pianos. The ability to vary the intensity and speed of touch to produce different tones adds another dimension to the joy of musical expression.
Virtual Resonance Modelling performs a real-time recreation of the resonance created by the behaviour of the strings and body of the instrument — the foundation of the beautiful sound of a genuine grand piano.
The latest acoustic design technology delivers lifelike concert grand piano tone and resonance to your home for you to enjoy. The CLP 795GP also features binaural samples of the Yamaha CFX, specifically for playing with headphones. Binaural Sampling uses two special microphones set at the ear position of a performer, which records the sound from a piano as it would actually be heard. Listening to this effect through headphones gives the impression of being immersed in the sound as if it was actually emanating from the piano. Moreover, you can enjoy the sound naturally for a long time without ear fatigue. This innovative technology offers hours of musical fun!
Newly sampled Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial voices
The Clavinova grand piano sounds are recorded from several world-renowned concert grand pianos. One of them is the CFX, Yamaha’s top-flight concert grand piano. Pianists worldwide are enamoured with the impressive, dazzling, richly expressive sound of the CFX in concert halls. Another sampled concert grand is the Imperial, the flagship model of Bösendorfer, a time-honoured Viennese piano brand with an ardent following. The Imperial is known for its abundance of colour and natural, warm feeling. Yamaha faithfully reproduces the idiosyncrasies of these concert grand pianos by carefully recording the entire tonal range of each of the 88 keys, making minute adjustments to capture the most harmonious tones each piano has to offer.
88-key Linear Graded Hammers
This Clavinova is the first digital piano keyboard ever to feature realistic weighting on every key.
Every single key on a grand piano keyboard is weighted differently. This is because the strings for each note are slightly thinner and shorter in the treble register, becoming thicker and longer towards the bass register.
The 88-key Linear Graded Hammers of the Clavinova is the first-of-its-kind to faithfully duplicate this graded touch with differing weights and key return on each one of its keys. This results in a feel and response astonishingly like a grand piano and allows players to appreciate a more authentic touch.
The GP Response Damper Pedal
Using the damper pedal subtly alters the nature of a piano’s sound and is essential to providing the pianist with all the necessary expressive tools to convey their musical vision.
Clavinova digital pianos feature a damper pedal that continually detects depression depth and allows half-pedalling, letting players make minute adjustments to pedal depression and return. This changes the depth and character of their piano sound.
The GP Response Damper Pedal offers a grand piano-style resistance curve, which starts light to the touch and grows heavier as the pedal is depressed further. This allows players to become accustomed to the nuances of delicate pedalling.
Period instrument voices open the door to the world of classical music
The CLP-785/795GP* is Yamaha’s first instrument to be equipped with the voices of the fortepiano, the predecessor to the modern piano.
The sounds emitted by a fortepiano are simpler than those of a modern piano and decay much more rapidly. Hearing the sounds of the instruments played when the likes of Mozart, Beethoven, and Chopin were composing their songs should illuminate the original intent behind the notes on the page. Here is a novel opportunity to communicate with historical composers by playing these period instruments.
*These models are equipped with the voices of four fortepianos beloved by Mozart, Chopin, Beethoven, and Scarlatti.
The fortepianos shown in the picture are from the collections at the Hamamatsu Museum of Musical Instruments.
Multi-track Song Recorder
The recording function featured in Clavinova digital pianos allows you to record your performances* with a single touch, which is useful when you want to review your playing objectively. Additionally, you can record up to 16 tracks for simultaneous playback, so different hands can be recorded separately or overdub parts with different voices.
*Recordings are made in MIDI format, and can also be recorded to USB flash memory. Compatible software is required for the playback of recorded data on a computer.
USB Audio Recorder
Record performances to USB flash memory and create audio files* you can save and playback on a computer, share with friends or create a CD.
*Data is saved in WAV format.
Connect wirelessly for Bluetooth® audio
You can play music through the audio system on the Clavinova* by using a Bluetooth-enabled smart device.
You can stream audio data such as mp3 files and enjoy playing along with any songs on your smart device. *Availability of Bluetooth audio varies by country.
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. You can use these built-in songs for practising with your right and left hands separately, or simply enjoy listening to them.
Playing the piano along with rhythm playback
The CLP-700 Series comes complete with 20 different and simple rhythm patterns (drums and bass accompaniment) that suit many types of music. You spice up your performance with some backing musicians, make practice more interesting, or open up your creative flow with inspiring new ideas.
The Clavinova CLP Series’s flagship grand piano-style model features a counterweighted GrandTouch keyboard and the finest sound system in the series.
