In 1983, Yamaha introduced the world to a new kind of piano. A compact electric keyboard that could faithfully recreate the power and performance of a concert grand. Nearly four decades later, the Yamaha Clavinova continues to inspire players of all levels with its authentic acoustic action, elegant design and the unmistakable tone of the finest concert grand pianos ever made. It’s no wonder TIME included the Clavinova on its list of the most influential technologies of the last fifty years.
The CLP-735 sets the bar for what is required for an instrument to be called a Clavinova. Its unobtrusive display lets you browse the 36 high-quality instrument Voices with ease. Choose from two world-class concert grand pianos, the Yamaha CFX and the Bösendorfer Imperial. Plus new fortepiano Voices allow you to hear the music of Bach and Mozart exactly as the composers would have heard it in their day. New to the CLP-700 series, you'll now experience the sound of the binaurally-sampled CFX and Bosendorfer Imperial grand pianos through your headphones. You can enjoy the realism of Virtual Resonance Modeling and high-quality digital effects through the on-board stereo speaker system. Play along with built-in rhythm patterns and record your performances using the built-in USB audio recorder. And with over a century of acoustic piano manufacturing heritage, it only makes sense that the best digital pianos come from Yamaha.
