      Yamaha CSP-150 Polished Ebony digital Piano - Innovation for effortless performance

      Clavinova is an innovative lineup of digital pianos that have continued to evolve while seeking to provide the touch and tone of a concert grand piano-the ultimate symbol of piano excellence. This authentic grand piano experience is the product of the knowledge and expertise that Yamaha has accumulated over more than 100 years of crafting acoustic pianos. Utilizing state-of-the-art technology to achieve grand piano quality, Clavinova digital pianos offer an inviting playing experience that is perfect for players of all levels. They emulate the touch and tone of a grand piano to make the transition from digital to acoustic piano a seamless and enjoyable one.

      Yamaha CSP-150 Polished Ebony digital Piano - The sound of some of the finest concert grand pianos in the world

      With two world-renowned concert grand pianos available at the touch of a button, the CSP Series lets you choose the perfect piano tone for the music you want to play. Offering far more than just sampled sounds, the CSP Series reproduces the Yamaha CFX concert grand and the legendary Bӧsendorfer Imperial in meticulous detail.

      Yamaha CSP-150 Polished Ebony digital Piano - A fully immersive concert grand experience-even with headphones

      Yamaha's advanced binaural sampling technology is now available on the Clavinova. The technology uses samples from the CFX, Yamaha's acclaimed concert grand piano, recorded with specialized microphones that capture locational information and other nuances discerned by the human ear. The resulting sound is so natural, so enveloping, that you'll soon forget you're even wearing headphones at all.

      Yamaha CSP-150 Polished Ebony digital Piano - Variety is the spice of life

      The CSP-150 Polished Ebony features hundreds of high-quality instrument Voices including "Natural!", "Sweet!" and "Cool!" Voices sampled specially to compliment the instrument types. Yamaha's Super Articulation Voices (SA) add genuine performance attributes of the real musical instruments as though they were being naturally performed by a virtuoso of that instrument instead of from the keys of a piano keyboard. Examples include "fret noise" or "body knocks" from a guitar or the "inhales", "exhales" and glissandos from wind instruments. By simply varying your touch and playing techniques or using the pedals, SA voices will add significant authenticity to your sound.

      Yamaha CSP-150 Polished Ebony digital Piano - When you want to play more than just piano

      One of the defining features of a CSP Clavinova is the multitude of different Styles that can be controlled in real-time by playing chords on the keyboard. Accompaniment Styles introduce ensembles of virtual musicians to your performances in a variety of musical genres. From small jazz ensembles to full orchestras, you control what chords or harmony they play by what you play, plus you control the dynamic of the ensemble. Developed by professional session musicians from around the world, Styles add authentic, studio-quality backing players to your performances - even when you play by yourself.

      Yamaha CSP-150 Polished Ebony digital Piano - The Graded Hammer 3X Keyboard (GH3X)

      The touch of the CSP-150 keyboard has been praised by pianists for a performance feel that makes you forget you're playing a digital piano, offering authentic response to the force of your touch and a natural key return. Utilizing the same hammering system and spring-less mechanism as a grand piano, GH3X actions accurately reproduce the touch of an acoustic piano from the heavy feel in the lower register to the lighter touch in the upper octaves.

      Yamaha CSP-150 Polished Ebony digital Piano - Escapement mechanism of Clavinova Keyboards

      The escapement mechanism in a grand piano moves the hammers away from the strings quickly after they strike them, in order to prevent any interference with string vibration. This mechanism produces a slight clicking sensation when the keys are pressed gently. Since Real Grand Expression offers players superb sound, touch and pedaling, we decided to create an escapement that delivers outstanding playability, repetition, and response without impeding performance. The Clavinova keyboards feature an escapement mechanism that reproduces this sensation near the bottom of the key dip. They have been designed in such a way that the click is discernible only on the lightest keystrokes, similar to the keyboard of a grand piano. These keyboards have been adjusted to provide additional friction that balances key repetition and response without impeding performance.

      Yamaha CSP-150 Polished Ebony digital Piano - Synthetic ivory and ebony keytops-a pleasure to play even after hours of performance

      Our fingers are more sensitive than we think, and for pianists, the texture of the piano keys is extremely important. The NWX keyboard features white keys made from the highest quality synthetic ivory, developed independently by Yamaha. The black keys are finished in synthetic ebony. Synthetic ivory keytops reproduce the tactile surface of the real ivory keyboards once used in older acoustic pianos. It features highly absorbent material that prevents fingers from slipping even after hours of practice, while retaining the ideal texture and feel. Resulting from well over a century of experience in making acoustic pianos, this exclusive Yamaha technology achieves a finish that feels natural and comfortable. In addition to the feel, the appearance and fine texture of these keys is unmatched by any other digital piano, and is sure to inspire pianists from the moment they experience it.

      Yamaha CSP-150 Polished Ebony digital Piano - Keyboard Stabilizers-unique Yamaha mechanisms for improved keyboard stability and durability

      Keyboards fulfill the vital role of transforming emotion from your fingertips into sound and therefore, must be smooth to play in order to maintain superb touch for prolonged performances. That is why Yamaha has fitted Keyboard Stabilizers to all 88 keys, offering players a natural touch and improving the stability and durability of the keyboard.

      Yamaha CSP-150 Polished Ebony digital Piano - For a sound that truly resonates with the listener

      In a grand piano, strings and sounds resonate throughout the entire body of the instrument producing a rich reverberation that envelops the listener in sound. Not only are the strings you are playing vibrating, but other strings ring as a reaction to ones you play. This is one reason the piano's sound is so complex and rich.

      This phenomenon is reproduced perfectly in the Clavinova through Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) which calculates the various states of the strings for each of the 88 notes on the keyboard from one instant to the next. As a result, the Clavinova reflects the limitless number of factors inherent in playing an acoustic piano such as which keys are pressed, the strength with which the keys are played and pedal timing.

      Yamaha CSP-150 Polished Ebony digital Piano - Acoustic Optimizer

      The speakers attached to the body exhibit a phenomenon in which, if nothing is done, the volume of the sound will increase due to the resonant frequency of the body. Conversely, installing pipes with the same resonant frequency within the body suppresses this resonance. Acoustic optimizers utilize this phenomenon.

      This improvement of the sound is something that has only been possible thanks to Yamaha‘s thorough knowledge of the internal acoustic characteristics of musical instruments.

      Yamaha CSP-150 Polished Ebony digital Piano - Sing in perfect Harmony… with yourself!

      You can enjoy karaoke backing with songs stored in your Clavinova or downloaded from YamahaMusicsoft.com. The lyrics are shown on the Smart Pianist app and the words change color as the song advances, so you know exactly when to come in.

      Plug in a microphone, and you can sing along with your playing. The Vocal Harmony engine creates advanced sounding harmonies, enriching your voice and is even capable of correcting your pitch!

      Yamaha CSP-150 Polished Ebony digital Piano - 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 Smart Pianist App

      Yamaha CSP-150 Polished Ebony digital Piano - Audio Recorder

      Record performances to Smart Pianist App and create audio files* you can save and play back on a Smart device.

      Yamaha CSP-150 Polished Ebony digital Piano - Play your favorite songs right away with the "Audio To Score" function

      Smart Pianist features an "Audio To Score" function that automatically creates a piano accompaniment score from songs on your smart device, allowing you to enjoy playing along with your favorite tunes.

      Yamaha CSP-150 Polished Ebony digital Piano - Backing band accompaniment that you can sing along with

      Enjoy accompaniment from a dynamic backing band, even when you're playing by yourself. The accompaniment provides a wide variety of patterns across a range of genres to match your performance. You can also connect a microphone and sing along with harmony functions that allow you to automatically create a chorus backup for your performances, even when you're singing alone.

      Staff Review by Alan Hamilton

      I visited Yamaha Music's head Office on the 3rd September 2017 to attend the launch of the new Yamaha CSP series pianos

      It's fair to say I have attended lots of new product launches since I took over A&C Hamilton Musical Instruments in 1989, I have always enjoyed them and I'm always amazed by the improvements I have seen.

      The Yamaha CSP digital piano is a very different idea. Although nothing is truly unique - the idea to bring them altogether in 1 package that works is. Every single objection that I could have to the concept has been dealt with.

      Is it a good quality Musical Instrument? - Absolutely, it's based on the CLP range which is Yamaha's premium range of digital pianos. Put all the technology to one side and you have a brilliant stand-alone piano

      Is it easy to use? The app that Yamaha have created works the same way any other app works, it's obvious, intuitive and it's easy to connect to the piano

      does it look good and will it have wires everywhere? . It looks great and there are no wires

      Yamaha have created a new style of piano that is based on tried and trusted methods. Wherever you get your kicks from playing Yamaha have found a solution, made it easy and then gone further and allowed you to do what you hadn't dreamed of doing. I was impressed how the demonstrator took a tune from his collection (this is an audio file(mp3) the app analysed it and produced a chord chart instantaneuosly.

      A chord chart is enough information for you to accompany a singer (or yourself) and it will sound great

      the demonstrator then took the chord chart and played along with one of the backing styles ( keyboard or CVP players will get this!)

      It would be easy to then record the song and your vocals to the audio recorder and have a piece that sounds impossibly different from the original, save it as an MP3 and email to your friends

      All this was done in easy obvious steps in a matter of seconds

      Another feature that bowled me over... Scales and practice pieces work! Hundreds of years of music tuition has told us this... nearly every piano teacher will confirm this... outstanding musicians will still do this. I need to do it more to loosen my fingers. Yamaha have included with the app bucket loads of tuition practice pieces and scales.

      The music comes on the screen, you can read the music, or follow the lights, the app is constantly showing where you are in the piece it's so simple.

      Keys lighting is not a new concept, it's been around for 30 years. It has a fundamental floor, when the light comes on you should already have hit the note! Again using modern games methods Yamaha have addressed this problem and provide an intuitive warning that you going to need to hit the key... it's brilliant and again very simple

      All in all it was a great day. My thanks to Yamaha for inviting me and I hope everyone gets the chance to see the Yamaha CSP-170 close up - it's inspirational
