Yamaha CVP-601, finished in Polished Ebony, joins the all new line-up of CVP-600 series Clavinova digital pianos new for 2013. Yamaha CVP-601 Clavinova in Polished Ebony comes loaded with the RGE (Real Grand Expression) sound engine, which produced an incredibly realistic recreation of an acoustic piano. Clavinova CVP601 also features the superb GH3 keyboard action for powerful expression.
The RGE Sound Engine technology gives Clavinova CVP601 an expressive capability similar to that of a concert grand piano and incorporates a new Smooth Release function, which can enunciate staccato notes with the sound of lingering resonance heard when gently lifting your fingers from the keys. It reproduces the unique resonances of an acoustic piano via the String Resonance feature, which expresses the mellow sounds of the other strings resonating. Key-Off samples are also featured, delivering the delicate change in sound the instant the damper touches the string, just before you raise your finger from the key.
Clavinova CVP-601 comes loaded with the GH3 keyboard that has been praised by pianists for a performance feel, giving this instrument a touch that makes you forget it's actually a digital piano. This keyboard feel comes from a hammering system and spring-less mechanism based on an acoustic grand piano. The GH3 action also features a 'Graded Hammer' design to faithfully reproduce the keyboard touch of an acoustic piano, from the heavy feel in the lower range to the lighter feel in the higher range.
Yamaha CVP-601 offers a fantastic new feature called Piano Room that you can use when you really want to focus on piano performance and savour the piano sound. You can select from three types of pianos, grand, pop grand and honky-tonk and also a playing location, such as concert hall, cathedral or stage. Instantly the tone and ambience effects change, giving your performance a totally different feel.
Clavinova CVP 601 features a large screen so that musical notation and text can be clearly displayed, making the many functions of the Clavinova easier to use. The screen can also display lyrics and chords. CVP-601 enables users to record their performances with the USB Audio Recorder, so you can you review and gauge your progress, or you can listen to them on a portable music player.
All in all Yamaha CVP-601 Clavinova in Polished Ebony delivers an exceptional digital piano packed with features and tones that deliver the experience of playing an acoustic piano, but with the benefits that only digital technology can deliver.
