Yamaha CLP-430 Clavinova, finished in Polished Ebony, joins the all new CLP-4 series of digital pianos. Yamaha CLP-430 Clavinova Polished Ebony features Real Grand Expression (RGE) technology, offering sound, touch and pedals that are perfectly integrated to give you the sensation of playing a grand piano. Clavinova CLP430-PE has 88 keys, equipped with keyboard stabilizers that lets you play with a natural touch which greatly improves the stability and durability of the keys. Three pedals (damper, sostenuto and soft) are included with the Yamaha CLP 430 perfect for complex pieces requiring clear and refined tone, great for classical as well as more rocky styles of composition. With a maximum 128-note polyphony, smooth release and damper resonance, you are truly in control of every aspect of your playing.
The RGE Sound Engine delivers the ultimate expressive capability for the CLP Series. It features a new Smooth Release function which can express sound with great clarity, and clearly enunciate staccato notes with the sound of lingering resonance heard when gently lifting your fingers from the keys. CLP430-PE succeeds in capturing the essence of a piano performance to create grand piano-like, richly expressive experiences. Clavinovas are provided with distinctive piano voices in addition to the piano voices that offer playing response like that of a concert grand piano. Include a piano for ballads that gently resonates the start-up sound, a piano for jazz that adds depth to the sound, and a piano for popular music with bright, rich sound. Dual, which means playing two voices simultaneously, provides a rich sound by overlapping the piano sound with strings. By combining the voices in various ways the Yamaha CLP430 lets you enjoy many different styles of play.
The GH3 (Graded Hammer 3) keyboard faithfully reproduces the touch of a grand piano. Depending on the weight of the hammer, the force of your touch and the natural key return when you release it, the Clavinova faithfully reproduces the keyboard touch of an acoustic piano from the heavy feel in the lower range to the light feel in the higher range. Also important is Yamaha's unique three-sensor system, which accurately senses and interprets the behavior of the keyboard, just like a grand piano. Variations of sound is created according to touch. Volume adjustment is convenient for playing at home, where sometimes others may prefer you play softly. The Yamaha CLP 430 features an Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) function that automatically adjusts the sound, so you enjoy proper sound balance even at low volumes.
Two recording functions can be used selectively according to your purpose, recording through the clavinova or a USB memory device. The Panel Reveal Key Cover lets you perform with all signs of technology on the control panel, discreetly hidden. This adds to the traditional piano-like cabinet design of the CLP-400 Series. The new Clavinovas reduce power consumption as much as 50percent from previous models by using high efficiency amplifiers. Not only do these amplifiers save energy, they also improve sound quality. The more you play, the more you will appreciate this energy-saving performance.
Yamaha places so much importance on the joy of playing, the speakers, amps and other acoustic systems have been optimized so the player hears nothing but stunning sound during a performance. These musical instrument-like resonances give the impression that the Clavinova is more acoustic than it is digital. The capabilities you want in your first piano, like satisfying touch and sound, will make playing enjoyable with Yamaha CLP-430 Clavinova Polished Ebony.
