        Yamaha CLP-535 White Ash Digital Piano Real Grand Expression: Sound, touch and pedals, all perfectly integrated to give you the sensation of playing a grand piano.

        Real Grand Expression; a phrase that defines the expressive capability of Clavinova. It is the key components of the sound, the touch and the pedals, together with the application of technology developed through a history of acoustic piano manufacturing. With Real Grand Expression, these elements are combined perfectly into a single instrument, creating the exact sound you want through the touch of the keys and the feel of the pedals. When you play a Clavinova, you can imagine that you are playing a grand piano.

        Yamaha CLP-535 White Ash Digital Piano - Two of the worlds finest grands...

        The CFX, Yamaha's finest concert grand selected and played by the winner of the 2010 International Chopin Piano Competition and the Imperial from BÖsendorfer, a brand held in high esteem by pianists throughout its long history. These renowned pianos are characterised by distinctive traits such as power, versatility, subtlety, lightness and mellowness. Both of these superb pianos' Voices are featured in the Clavinova. Tuned to perfection by a highly experienced piano technician with the sound from each key sampled individually, Clavinova truly captures the unique tonal character of each of these outstanding instruments. With Clavinova, you can enjoy the exquisite beauty of the sought-after tone that the CFX and BÖsendorfer Imperial deliver.

        The Clavinova faithfully recreates the sound of an acoustic piano by utilising features such as String Resonance to emulate the mellow tonal colors that occur when strings react to one another. The result is a beautiful tone with rich, deep reverberation. In addition to the reverberation of the strings themselves, Damper Resonance reproduces the broad, deep sound field of an acoustic piano. It also mirrors the tonal changes that result when a damper pedal on a grand piano is depressed. It includes sounds such as those emitted from the key bed and emulates the cumulative resonance that occurs when all of these sounds blend together.

        Yamaha CLP-535 White Ash Digital Piano -Smooth tonal transitions, perfectly matched to the players touch

        A pianist changes the volume and dynamics of the sound by varying the pressure applied to the keys. A Clavinova responds perfectly to give the player an outstanding level of performance control. By using long, carefully-sampled recordings of notes on a piano and unique Yamaha technologies to achieve smooth tonal transitions, rich sonic detail is delivered in response to the touch of the player.

        Yamaha CLP-535 White Ash Digital Piano - From staccato to legato, superbly expressive sound that responds to the players touch

        Featuring Yamahas Smooth Release technology, Clavinova recreates the crisp tone heard when playing staccato as well as the lingering sound produced by releasing the keys slowly.

        Yamaha CLP-535 White Ash Digital Piano - 256-note polyphony

        Powerful polyphony ensures that more complex passages of music can be played without notes cutting off.

        Yamaha CLP-535 White Ash Digital Piano - Graded Hammer 3X (GH3X) keyboard

        Using knowledge gained from many years of piano manufacturing, Yamaha Clavinova has an incredibly realistic keyboard feel that recreates the sensation of playing an acoustic instrument. By using a similar hammer mechanism (with no springs) as that found in a grand piano, the GH3 keyboard action reproduces the touch of an acoustic instrument, from the heavier feel in the lower register to the lighter touch in the upper octaves. It also features a three-sensor configuration which accurately senses and interprets the behaviour of the keyboard to create a response and feel very much like that of a grand piano. The newly developed GH3X keyboard features an escapement mechanism that reproduces a slight clicking sensation near the bottom of the key travel. It has been designed in such a way that the click is discernible only on the lightest keystrokes, similar to the keyboard of a grand piano.

        Yamaha CLP-535 White Ash Digital Piano - Keyboard Stabilizers for improved stability and durability

        The keyboard fulfills the vital role of transforming the emotion from your fingertips into sound and therefore, it must respond in a stable and consistent manner. That is why Yamaha has fitted keyboard stabilizers to all 88 keys, giving the player a natural feel and improving the stability and durability of the keyboard.

        The keys on a Clavinova are constructed so that the fulcrum is as far from the key tip as possible. This improves playability and comfort, especially when pressing at the back of the key. This construction provides good key travel, even when performing pieces played mainly on the black keys and the backs of the white keys, allowing nuanced variations in touch and broadening your expressive range.

        Yamaha CLP-535 White Ash Digital Piano - Full-bodied tone and resonance

        The sound of a Clavinova is calibrated in fine detail, with speaker positioning and body materials checked to ensure that the entire instrument resonates optimally. To create a sound field that is very close to that of a grand piano, the Clavinova features tone escapements in several locations throughout the body that allow the sound from the speakers to be projected to the listener without being trapped inside the instrument.

        Yamaha CLP-535 White Ash Digital Piano - Acoustic Optimizer

        The body of the Clavinova contains Acoustic Optimizers that regulate the flow of sound and control tone. A new technology developed from Yamahas intimate knowledge of the acoustic properties of musical instruments, Acoustic Optimizers deliver a natural, smooth sound across the entire keyboard.

        Yamaha CLP-535 White Ash Digital Piano - Multi-track song recording

        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 or archive your playing. You can record up to 2 tracks for simultaneous playback, so that each hand can be recorded separately or parts recorded using different sounds.

        Yamaha CLP-535 White Ash Digital Piano - USB Audio Recorder

        Record performances to USB flash memory and create audio files (WAV format) you can save and play back on a computer or portable audio device, share with friends or use to create a CD.

        Yamaha CLP-535 White Ash Digital Piano - New reverb that offers dynamic ambience and spatial effects

        A new reverb system allows to you experience the sensation of playing in a large concert hall, cathedral or other venue, adding depth and atmosphere to the sound. Now you can experience concert hall ambience and spaciousness in the privacy of your own home.

        Yamaha CLP-535 White Ash Digital Piano - IAC (Intelligent Acoustic Control)

        The ability to adjust performance volume is extremely useful at home where players may not always be able to play at high volume levels. However, at low volumes, bass and treble may become difficult to hear. To counter this, Clavinova is equipped with Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC), which adjusts the sound automatically, allowing players to enjoy balanced sound at any volume level.

        The first thing that comes to mind when you look at a CLP535 is that it looks exactly the same as a more expensive CLP575 , as the non digital look of the CLP range in general is one of its strong points , buying the CLP535 obviously gets you that great look for less buck ! . We have the White Ash version in store and it looks great, looks like it should be at least aroung the 2k mark. The recent addition of the more mellow sounding Bosendorfer Piano sample along with its tech capabilities via USB stick, at this price makes the CLP535 a very good all round attractive option.
