Yamaha CLP685 Clavinova Piano - Polished Ebony

Yamaha’s new Clavinova CLP range for 2017 is here. With incredible new sample sets, realistic feel keys, and many more features designed to create as authentic a sound as possible, we anticipate that these pianos will be an extremely popular choice for professionals and beginners alike.

We think:

Clavinovas have been amongst the leading instruments in the digital piano world for years, offering an extremely authentic piano sound and an array of excellent features, housed within a stunning looking piano body.
All pianos in this range have a weighted 88 note hammer action keyboard which reproduces the touch of an acoustic instrument, from the heavier feel in the lower register to the lighter touch in the upper octaves, facilities to record your performance, and Yamaha’s excellent grand piano sound.
The new range of CLP pianos now have a Bluetooth interface, which allows you to pair your IOS or Android device. Through this feature, you can play music on your device through the CLP speakers, so you can play along to your favourite songs.
Yamaha Apps can also be used with an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, for a more creative and fun playing experience.
The CLP685 houses some of the best Yamaha technology, from the sound sampling to the highly realistic piano action. This is by far, one of the best Yamaha CLP pianos available.

The Grand Piano Sound

The CLP-685 pianos use samples recorded from two high end grand pianos: The CFX - Yamaha’s finest concert grand, chosen and played by the winner of the 2010 International Chopin Piano Competition - and the famous Imperial concert grand from Bösendorfer. These grand pianos were tuned by a highly experienced piano technician, with each individual note then being recorded separately for the Clavinova CLP series.

Virtual Resonance Modelling

With VRM, the natural resonance of an acoustic grand piano is emulated within the Clavinova. This piano has been improved, and so adds more realism to your playing. By calculating the states of the would-be strings at every given moment (based on factors such as the notes played, timing, register, quantity of notes held down, how the pedal is being played, and so on), the CLP-685 piano can accurately reproduce the sound of the distinctive and rich reverberation created in the body of an acoustic grand piano.

Linear, Hammer, Action!

The CLP-685 pianos feature a Linear Graded Hammer Action to reproduce the differences in weight and return of each individual key. No two keys are the same, which enables you to express your music in a more advanced way.

Details in Sound

Thanks to Yamaha Smooth Release Technology, the CLP can reproduce the crisp sound heard from playing staccato notes, but also the lingering sound heard from playing legato. With an acoustic piano, when a key is pressed and then released, a subtle change in sound is heard, as the damper is lowered onto the string to mute the sound. Key-Off samples reproduce this subtle effect, by using actual recorded sounds of a key being released.

Full Body Resonance

The CLP-685 has been designed so that the speakers, speaker positioning, and body materials allow the piano to resonate optimally. For a sound image that is even closer to a grand piano, this range also features “Tone Escapement”, allowing the sound to reach the listener’s ears without being trapped inside the instrument.

Stereophonic Optimizer

The Stereophonic Optimizer feature adjusts the stereo image of the piano’s output, when listening through headphones. Similar to a stereo widening effect, this will make whatever you are playing sound great through your cans.
