      Yamaha CVP-709 Polished Ebony Features - Refurbished by Yamaha

      Over a century of piano building experience culminates in a truly modern instrument.

      Experience a purely digital piano with the heart of a true grand. Youll feel the difference from the very first notes you play. Realistic touch and response, paired with the unmistakeable tone of the finest concert grand pianos ever made, the Clavinova delivers expressive capabilities and a dynamic range that redefines the standard for digital pianos today.

      Your dream piano studio awaits.

      The enhanced Piano Room now includes the world-class Yamaha CFX and Bosendorfer Imperial grand pianos, plus vintage electric pianos. In Session Mode, you can invite three virtual musicians into the room to "jam" with you as you practice and perform in one of 40 different musical styles. These session musicians will automatically follow your harmonies and your volume expression using the new Dynamics Control feature. You can selectively activate and deactivate each one depending on your musical needs at the time. Within this special room, you can even record your sessions with the touch of a single button.

      Virtually every instrument Yamaha builds can be found inside.

      Yamaha is the Worlds largest manufacturer of musical instruments, and CVP Clavinovas contain high-resolution, high-definition recordings only possible from a company with this rich herritage. Super Articulation (SA) and Super Articulation 2 (SA2) Voices are both highly advanced and easy to use, making you sound like a pro. With them youll hear the most realistic reproductions of legato and staccato performance techniques that are so essential to playing bowed and wind instruments. By simply varying your touch and playing techniques or using the pedals, SA and SA2 Voices will add significant authenticity to your sound.

      When you want to play more than just piano.

      One of the defining features of a CVP Clavinova is the multitude of different Styles that can be controlled in real-time by playing chords on the keyboard. Accompaniment Styles introduce ensembles of virtual musicians to your performances in a variety of musical genres. From small jazz ensembles to full orchestras, you control what chords or harmony they play by what YOU play, plus you control the dynamic of the ensemble. Developed by professional session musicians from around the world, Styles add authentic, studio-quality backing players to your performances - even when you play by yourself. You can use Styles to add embellishing Intros, Endings & Fill-Ins and even arrange songs in real-time.

      Now anyone can play a hit song, one light at a time.

      CVP Clavinovas are very patient: if you dont play the right notes, they wait until you do! This is made possible with the CVPs unique Guide feature. As the easiest way to play a song, the Follow Lights library teaches you popular melodies in a way only possible on a CVP Clavinova. Just follow the lights one note at a time, and fully-arranged orchestrations and arpeggios embellish your playing. Here, you dont play along with a recording, the recording literally plays along with YOU. Visit www.yamahamusicsoft.com/followlights to browse the entire library today.

      Get connected and start singing.

      You can connect a microphone to enjoy singing along with your keyboard performance or using Karaoke song files from YamahaMusicSoft.com. All input jacks are conveniently located at the front of the instrument, under the keybed for easy access. Only Yamaha could build an instrument with studio-quality effects like reverb, echo and even Vocal Harmony. Alternatively, you can connect a portable music device such as an MP3 player or smart phone to enjoy listening through the Clavinovas high-definition speaker system.

      An Exciting day with Yamaha! Staff Review by Justin Myerscough

      Every now and again myself and colleague Keith Rawlinson get to escape the shop for the day to preview new products with Yamaha , on this occasion it was for the August 2015 launch of the new PSRS series Keyboards - PSR-S670 - PSRS-770 - PSR-S970 and the new CVP700 series Digital Pianos - CVP701 - CVP705 - CVP709

      First Impressions of the Yamaha CVP709.

      The most obvious difference I think was the basic Piano sound itself , having now received the Bosendorfer piano sample, this is a completely different sound to the main Yamaha Grand Piano sample that we have been used to , a sound that is more mellow and full of character is the way that it comes across to me. The combination of this and the new speaker system really makes a big difference to the core sound of this product. We saw a an amusing and interesting demonstration of the new Spruced Cone Speaker and Twisted Flare Port using a large bottle of water !, basically if you tip the water out and hold it still, it takes a lot longer to get rid of the water than if you twist or spin the bottle, this translates to more of the bass being punched out quicker, producing a much nicer and tighter bass sound. The Spruced cone will also have a benefit in improving the tone.

      Piano Room

      This was an interesting new feature of the previous range that gave you lovely clear images of your chosen piano type ( grand, upright etc ) and the ambience from your desired location ( stage, hall,room etc ). This time they have made this feature into what I think is the most exciting and will be the most used feature of the product , because it is so simple and clear and intuitive. What happens is that if for example you start off with just the piano , you have a very clear image of the piano on the screen , you can then very easily just add your bass player and drummer or the complete backing band , it works so beautifully people are just going to love this feature , it also means you can use the instrument without even having to touch a single button, just operating it from the very clear touch screen, it even crossed our minds when we tried this that if you had some kind of " blanking plate " to cover all the buttons you would still be able to use it very nicely.
