YAMAHA CLP645 Clavinova | Black
When Time Magazine recently included the Yamaha Clavinova in its Top 50 Gadgets of All Time it was a timely reminder of just how much the range has done to redefine our perception of exactly how good a ‘Digital Piano’ can be.
Since the first models in the mid 80s Yamaha’s R&D department, working in conjunction with an astounding breath of international artists, have constantly pushed the boundaries of design innovation in their mission to distil the sound, touch and feel of some of the world’s finest grand pianos into an instrument that would be practical and affordable for all.
With the launch of their new 600 Series Clavinovas have yet again redefined what we can expect from a digital piano introducing increased specification and performance right across the range.
In their constant search for the ultimate in real piano feel, Yamaha have given the CLP645 a Natural Wood Keyboard with synthetic ebony and ivory key tops, just like on a real acoustic piano. This means that any transitions to or from this piano to a real piano will be very smooth and natural with no need to change your technique to a new feel or dynamic response. The CLP645 also features Bluetooth connectivity allowing you wireless access to a whole world of support apps from Yamaha and other developers.

Introducing GrandTouch and ebony keytops
The newly developed GrandTouch keys offer more responsive touch and a greater dynamic range than ever before. The pianist can experience a natural, balanced response from the tip to the very back of each key. The black keys on all keyboards of the new CLP-600 series are finished in ebony. Synthetic ivory key tops reproduce the tactile surface of the real ivory keyboards that were 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.
Real grand piano tone
Two world-renowned concert grand pianos in one. The powerful tone of the flagship Yamaha concert grand, the CFX, and the unmistakable sound of a Bösendorfer Imperial are available at the touch of a button. In the CLP-685 you will also find the Yamaha C7 Studio Grand. In additional to this, all models from the CLP-635 upwards include an Upright Piano voice.
Physical modeling techniques provide authentic reproductions of internal grand piano reverberations and offer rich, endlessly varying expressive capabilities. VRM reproduces the resonance characteristics of the strings for every note on the grand piano keyboard in nuanced detail.
Enhanced Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) for rich and bright sound
In a grand piano, sound resonates throughout the body of the instrument, producing a rich reverberation that envelops the listener in sound. These phenomena are reproduced perfectly in the Clavinova through Yamaha Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) technology. The piano body resonates just like an acoustic piano. The acoustic system of the Clavinova reproduces the sensation of the entire piano vibrating, just like the feeling of playing an acoustic piano.
Even headphones produce a larger than life experience.
Thanks to advanced binaural sampling technology, you can enjoy the highly realistic sensation of playing a concert grand piano even when you are using headphones. For the first time Yamaha’s advanced binaural sampling technology is now available on the Clavinova. The technology uses samples from the CFX 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.
Built-in Bluetooth audio
You can play along with music from your favorite music apps via the Clavinova’s built-in Bluetooth interface.
