This is What Our Expert Had to Say…

Jack thinks:
'The simple, beautiful, traditional-style looks of the Yamaha CLP635 will provide every musician with all necessary attributes. Looking for a digital piano that performs exceptionally close to an acoustic? The CLP635 will have you covered. If you are keen on getting creative, composing and recording and are looking for a piano that will also interact with your computer, this Clavinova is sure to cater to your needs. The perfect fusion between the natural tone and action and a good range of creative aspects makes this instrument perfect for the whole family. It is beautifully finished in Dark Walnut, which will warm up any room and harmonise particularly well if the surroundings are decorated using warm shades. If I had to choose a digital piano that delivers like an acoustic, this would be one of my top picks.' 

How Have Yamaha Achieved This Remarkable Sound in the CLP 635 Yamaha Clavinova?

There are a number of different elements which work together to create a truly superior instrument. Below is a brief overview of the different elements which we feel you might be interested in.

Grand Samples

Yamaha have taken samples from both the CFX Grand Piano and the Bösendorfer Imperial grand piano; the recordings have then been carefully tuned by an expert master grand piano technician. Each sample has been individually recorded for each of the 88 keys on this beautiful digital piano. Giving you the scope to play a wide selection of styles, without compromising on the quality of sound.

Choice of 36 Voices

Unlike it’s predecessor (the Yamaha CLP 625), the Dark Walnut CLP 635 Yamaha Clavinova has 36 different voices which is perfect for those who want to play with different styles and develop their creativity as a musician. Voices include electric pianos, strings and organs.

Key-Off Samples

In order to capture the true essence of the CFX Grand Piano and the Bösendorfer, Yamaha have recorded the moment that the pianist lowered the damper onto the strings in order to mute the sound. Thus, recreating a true reproduction of the sounds emitted from these two beautiful grand pianos.

Acoustic Optimiser

While Yamaha have stayed true to the authentic and traditional quality of CFX Grand Piano and the Bösendorfer Imperial grand piano, they have also introduced a touch of technology to help enhance the experience for the pianist and their audience. This is evident in the incorporation of the Acoustic Optimiser, which has been fitted to regulate the flow of sound and control the tone. This guarantees a smooth sound across the entire 88 keys.

Smooth Transition Between Tones

Yamaha have also thought about the movement of jumping between different notes, which is why they incorporate long, carefully sampled recording of notes to achieve this smooth transition. This is represented nicely in the image below;

Smooth Release Technology

Intent on recreating the perfect experience for the pianist, Yamaha have also included their latest Smooth Release Technology. This innovative technology enables the pianist to switch between sharp staccato passages to the lingering lull of a legato passage – and all with perfect ease.

256-Note Polyphony

The 256-note polyphony allows the pianist to successfully play a number of notes simultaneously without cutting off. This is a useful feature for those who want to practice duets or complex passages.

Strong Resonance & Dynamic Ambience

Internal speakers have been carefully positioned to project a resonating sound to both pianist and listeners alike. Plus, Yamaha have incorporated a new reverb system into the design of the Yamaha CLP 635 Clavinova which adds depth and ambience to the projected sound; reproducing the effect of playing in a large concert hall or cathedral.

Graded Hammer 3x (GH3X) Keyboard

The Dark Walnut CLP 635 Yamaha Clavinova has also been designed with a graded hammer 3x (GH3X) keyboard which recreates the sensation of playing an acoustic instrument. It uses a hammer mechanism, minus the springs, which reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano. And, as any pianist will tell you, there is nothing quite like playing an acoustic piano.

The Digital Perks to the Dark Walnut CLP 635 Yamaha Clavinova

The Yamaha CLP 635 Clavinova successfully captures the essence and spirit of the grand pianos which is has carefully taken its samples from; however, Yamaha haven’t neglected the modern-day needs of a pianist. It’s for this reason why the CLP 635 Yamaha Clavinova has a choice of handy technical features which are a must-have for any pianist in today’s world.
