Yamaha’s latest keyboard action features a broad dynamic range and faithful response to every nuance of touch that puts a wide expanse of tone. From delicate to bold, its all at the pianist’s fingertips. The highly consistent grand piano hammers replicate the pleasing response felt when the hammers strike the strings, enabling precise control of the tone.

Highly absorbent synthetic-ivory white keys and synthetic-ebony black keys prevent slipping even during extended play. So, the Yamaha CLP-725’s keys feels just like those of a grand piano.


The escapement mechanism in a grand piano moves the hammers away from the strings quickly after they strike them, in order to prevent any interference with string vibration. This mechanism produces a slight clicking sensation when the keys are pressed gently.

The CLP-725 Clavinova keyboard features an escapement mechanism that reproduces this sensation near the bottom of the key dip. They have been designed in such a way that the click is discernible only on the lightest keystrokes, similar to the keyboard of a grand piano. These keyboards have been adjusted to provide additional friction that balances key repetition and response without impeding performance.


Clavinova pianos boast excellent playability and versatile functions. Along with a refined, authentic design that blends a compact form with modern aesthetics, Clavinova’s set the contemporary standard for digital pianos.

At the heart of the Clavinova design concept is the way the player feels when they take their seat in front of a Clavinova piano. Unnecessary elements are removed from the player’s field of vision to create a convincingly natural space that feels just like sitting at an acoustic piano. This represents Yamaha’s consideration to players who practice on Clavinova and perform on grand pianos. They are able to take the stage free of tension or worry because everything feels normal, as it should. A Clavinova piano is a part of the player’s everyday life. Contemporary accents and color variations are available to mesh with any interior design or lifestyle.


The interaction and interplay of the hammers, dampers, and strings inside a grand piano respond to the subtlest nuances of the pianist’s touch, creating a limitless range of tonal expression. Touch refers to the pianist’s control, not only of intensity (softness/loudness) in playing and releasing the keys, but also of the speed and depth with which the keys are pressed. The Grand Expression Modeling introduced in the CLP-700 Series translates the widely varied input from the pianist’s fingers into the same limitless tonal variation of a grand piano.

This makes it possible to vary the output by playing the keys to different depths and with different speeds, even when using techniques such as trills or legato or emphasizing the melody over the accompaniment.

Grand Expression Modeling excels at faithfully reproducing the output expected of these techniques in many well-known songs. In Debussy’s “Clair de Lune,” a loose touch creates the faint tone that makes the melody stand out more crisply. In Liszt’s “Un Sospiro,” the accompanying arpeggios accent the melody without overwhelming it, and varied expression of the melody gives it the same quality as vocals. While, in the last of the Chopin nocturnes, trills, legato, and other delicate techniques where fingers seem to float over the keys deliver the airy, smooth tonal expression required. Playing such pieces on a highly expressive piano helps the pianist learn various techniques and experience the same joy of expression as a painter, but through sound.


The CLP-725 Clavinova grand piano sounds are recorded from several world-renowned concert grand pianos. One of them is the CFX, Yamaha’s top-flight concert grand piano, which has been newly sampled for the CLP Series. Pianists around the world are enamored with the richly expressive & dazzling sound of the CFX in concert halls. Another sampled concert grand is the Imperial, the flagship model of Bösendorfer. It is a time-honored Viennese piano brand with an ardent following. The Imperial is known for its abundance of color and natural, warm feeling.

Yamaha faithfully reproduces the idiosyncrasies of these incredible concert grand pianos. They carefully record the entire tonal range of each of the 88 keys, making minute adjustments to capture the most harmonious tones each piano has to offer.


One of the allures of the grand piano is the sympathetic resonance created by the vibration of the entire instrument. CLP-725 Clavinova pianos elaborately reproduce this rich sympathetic resonance through a groundbreaking technology called Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM).

VRM creates a richly varied sound by simulating the complex sympathetic tones created when the vibrations of the strings are propagated to the soundboard and other strings. These correspomd to the timing and intensity of key playing and pedaling. CLP-700 Series pianos even replicate the sounds the dampers make when they are raised off the strings! This is in addition to the resonance of the duplex scaling, strings, soundboard, and case. Clavinova pianos allow you to enjoy the same momentary dynamics and deep sympathetic sounds that are produced by the entire body of a grand piano.


The CLP-725 features binaural samples of the Yamaha CFX. Binaural sampling is a method of sampling in which special microphones are placed on a mannequin’s head. These sit in the same positions as the pianist’s ears, so they capture the sounds how you’d actually hear them.

We chose this method to create the ambience and full, natural resonance of acoustic pianos in Clavinova pianos. This makes pianists feel as though they are sitting at a grand piano even when they play with headphones on. The experience is so pleasant that they forget they are wearing headphones, no matter how long they continue to play.

We also developed the Stereophonic Optimizer function to achieve the same effect for the piano effects. This technology replicates the natural sound diffusion in headphones nearly as closely as binaural sampling for the non-CFX piano voices.


Enjoy the piano more with Yamaha’s Smart Pianist app! This dedicated app adds a beautiful graphic interface and a variety of incredible features to your compatible Yamaha digital piano.


The recording function featured in Clavinova digital pianos allows you to record your performances*. You can accomplish this with just a single touch, which is useful when you want to review your playing objectively. Additionally, you can record up to 2 tracks for simultaneous playback. So, different hands can be recorded separately or overdub parts with different voices.

*Recordings are made in MIDI format. Compatible software is required for playback of recorded data on a computer.
