Yamaha launches Clavinova CSP pianos9:49, 21st September 2017
Yamaha has unveiled its new Clavinova CSP series.
The CSP instruments are high performance clavinovas featuring the sounds of the Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial concert grand pianos. They also feature Stream Lights which visually aid the learning process, giving advance warning of which notes to play.
The instruments can be combined with the Smart Pianist app, which gives access to hundreds of sounds and backing bands, all of which can be adjusted to match the player’s style. For example, within the ‘piano room section’, the lid position of a grand piano can be adjusted by swiping the screen.
The app also boasts interactive scores for over 300 accredited piano exercises, as well as a range of popular scores. It can even access the user’s personal music collection through their smart device and create chord charts and piano scores.
Yamaha’s Leanne Barrell said: ‘The CSP Clavinova will bring the joy of piano performance and learning to a huge new audience of music lovers that want to connect with the instrument in a hugely entertaining way. It symbolises the Yamaha philosophy of enriching lives through music.’
There are two CSP models available: CSP-170 and CSP-150. The two models differ in terms of keyboard action and speaker system, and both are available in polished ebony, black and white.
The CSP-150 costs from £2,231, and the CSP-170 from £2,768.
