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. What sets the all new CLP 785 flagship piano apart from other CLP models (with the exception of the CLP 795 grand piano) is the caliber of speakers used and the GrandTouch Keyboard action. The GrandTouch action has the individual key counter weights found in a grand piano for unrivaled realism in the resistance and return of each key. The all new CFX and Bösendorfer samples absolutely sing through the powerful 300W sound system with Spruce Cone speakers. Spruce wood is used in the sound boards of Yamaha acoustic pianos because of its superior tone quality, and that same wood is used in the CLP-685 speaker cones. You will lose yourself in the sound of the updated binaurally-sampled CFX which is a totally immersive headphone experience. Selecting Voices and adjusting settings is easy using the intuitive touch screen user LCD interface.

The World's Finest Concert Grands At Your Fingertips

Yamaha's advanced binaural recording process recreates the tone, power and nuanced colors of their flagship Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial concert grands. The resulting sound is so natural you'll almost forget you're playing a digital piano.



Plays Like a Grand

Weighted, graded keys reproduce the authentic touch, response and natural key return of a grand piano while our Smooth Release Technology captures the colors and nuance when playing staccato, legato and everything in between.


Keys The Other Digital Pianos Can't Touch

Yamaha's proprietary synthetic ebony and ivory keytops have a natural, comfortable feel that players of all levels can't wait to get their hands on.


Authentic Acoustic Resonance

Yamaha's innovative Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) recreates the resonance of the soundboard, rim and frame to emulate the natural feeling of an acoustic piano. Even when playing with headphones.


Beautiful In Every Way

Clavinova CLP is available in a wide range of cabinet designs, finishes and colors. A stunning addition to your home, no matter which model you choose.


Intuitive IOS and Android Controls

Clavinova CLP can do more than ever. Now it's easy to access all of it with your iOS or Android devices. The Yamaha Smart Pianist controller app lets you adjust settings, choose Voices, record performances and more.


Fortepiano Voices

The CLP-700 Series are Yamaha's first instruments to be equipped with the voices of the fortepiano. This 18th century predecessor to the modern piano was played by master composers such as Mozart, Chopin, Beethoven, and Scarlatti.


Make Your Voices Heard

Piano and Strings. Bass and guitar. French Horn and Cello. Dual and Split Voice modes let you play two Voices at the same time for nearly infinite musical inspiration.
