Clavinova CSP 170 - Matte Black
The CSP (Clavinova Smart Pianist) is the most sophisticated and user oriented digital piano in existence today. The two features that distinguish the CSP 170 model from the CSP 150 model are the larger speakers and the solid wood keys. The genius developers at Apple and the Yamaha Piano Division collaborated to create an elite digital piano unlike any piano you’ve ever seen. The piano is unique because it only has one button. Every feature is accessed through your iPad using the same IOS functions we are all so familiar with. The number one feature of the CSP is it’s ability to take any song in your iTunes library, and turn it into sheet music as well as chord charts instantaneously! Add in hundreds of studio caliber voices, incredible background rhythms, recording capabilities, 2 world class piano samples, stream lights for beginners and Karaoke, and you have a piano the whole family can enjoy. Because it’s app driven, it’s the only digital piano guaranteed to never become obsolete. All you have to do is update the app and you have all the latest upgrades. If you're wondering if a CSP Clavinova is right for you, watch the two demo videos. There's nothing else like it on the market!

You won't find a better price advertised online, you'll have a worry free warranty for 10 years, and you'll receive excellent customer service, free express shipping, ongoing tech support and a bench.

Audio to Score - The #1 CSP Feature

Audio to Score uses songs saved on your smart device and instantly converts the audio to sheet music. *Audio to Score feature is exclusive to Clavinova CSP.
Learn Your Favorite Songs In Minutes with Stream Lights
Stream lights won’t turn you into a concert pianist but it will have you playing your favorite pop tune within minutes. When your friends hear you play, they will think you’ve had years of lessons! When you get a taste of what it feels like to play actual songs you love, it will supercharge your motivation to take lessons, learn to read sheet music and put in the hard work and leave the lights in the rear view mirror.
Background Rhythms - for when your metronome gets boring
Would you prefer practicing with a tick tock metronome or with studio musicians? The background rhythms offer pop, rock, latin, and jazz drum styles to accompany you on any type of song you are learning. When you are practicing solo piano, it’s hard to get the feel for what it’s like to play with a rhythm section. Practice with the built rhythms to give yourself a head start for when you hit the stage. It’s also a great tool for song writing.
16 TRACKS OF RECORDING! Write music, record recital pieces, internal storage
Whether you’ve written a piece of music or just perfected a recital piece, capture it and save it using the built in recording features. That way you can track your performances over the years or just step back and listen to the parts of your song that need more work. All of your performances are saved into an easy to access folder in your app. From there you can download them to dropbox or export them to a thumb drive. You can record up to 16 tracks so if you want to lay down a bass beat, add piano, throw in some guitar and layer in some strings, you can create fully polished songs and save them in either audio or midi formats.
Free updates, year after year
Yamaha is always coming out with new sounds, new rhythms and new features. Because the brains of your piano are housed in an app, that app can be updated. That means you will always have the latest state of the art technology and that your piano will never become obsolete. There isn’t a digital piano on the planet that can make that promise!
Yamaha CFX Concert Grand Piano
The nine-foot CFX is a is a full sized concert grand piano characterized by a wide palette of tonal colors and the ability to create the most subtle expressive nuances. The CFX can project over the sound of a symphony orchestra, even in very large halls. The crowning glory of the Yamaha line, today's CFX concert grand incorporates numerous refinements in performance, elevating this revered instrument to an even higher standard of excellence. The CLP Clavinova puts the majesty of this $180,000 concert grand right at your fingertips.
Bösendorfer Imperial Concert Grand Piano
Bösendorfer has been perfecting the craft of piano creation for over 185 years. The legendary 97-key Imperial Grand has the largest soundboard of any piano and rich history of artist endorsements from Bartók, Debussy, Ravel and Franz Liszt to Tori Amos and Oscar Peterson. This $300,000 masterpiece sounds amazing on the CLP CLavinova.
SAVE $1000’s OVER THE LIFESPAN OF THE PIANO!! Even the best pianos are in jeopardy of warping, squeaking, going out of tune, having sticky keys and becoming less fun to play when those things are happening. If you tune your piano twice a year at $125 a pop, that’s a $1,500 expense over 5 years. It’s extremely rare for a Clavinova to have any issues at all. The touch remains consistent, the sound in perfect tune and the functions in perfect order for decades to come, saving you $1,000’s of dollars over the years.
Silent Practice with headphones!
If the piano is getting played for 20min, 45min, or hours a day, the noise of the piano can be disruptive to the home and the noise of the home can be distracting for the pianist. When you need to practice and the tv is on, the other kids are doing homework and the baby is sleeping, you’ll be grateful for headphones. If you think the Clavinova sounds great through speakers, just wait until you hear it through a nice set of headphones! Yamaha uses Binaural sampling which is a fancy way to describe a sophisticated recording technique using a special combination of microphones to reproduce the sound of an acoustic piano to the human ear through headphones.
Virtual Resonance Modeling
Think of VRM this way, playing digital pianos of the past was like eating a fine meal while you have a cold, it tastes ok but you miss the full aroma and subtle nuances of flavor. VRM adds the richness and tonal quality to the high definition sound of the instrument. VRM calculates the various states of strings for each of the 88 notes on the keyboard, from one instant to the next, and timing and depth of the damper pedals pressed. The enhanced VRM now calculates aliquot resonance in the upper octaves, and the full resonance of the soundboard, rim, and frame. This technology allows for vivd, bright, richly-varied expression that reflect the limitless number of factors inherent in piano performance.
Natural Wood X keyboard
Natural Wood X (NWX) keyboards (CLP 645) are created using unrivaled expertise that Yamaha has acquired through more than a century of crafting fine pianos. Just as with grand pianos, the material used for Natural Wood X keyboards is cut from wood that has been carefully dried specifically for use in making musical instruments. Only the best wood from the finest part of each tree is selected, resulting in a keyboard that is more resistant to buckling and warping than common laminated wood keyboards. The Yamaha Natural Wood X keyboard features the same action and three-sensor configuration as Graded Hammer 3X keyboards, which accurately senses and interprets the behavior of the keyboard for a response that feels very similar to that of a grand piano. This allows you to vividly perform smooth, flowing passages or light trills, techniques used in many classical and jazz pieces
Benefits of smooth release
From staccato to legato—superbly expressive sound that responds to the player’s touch
Featuring Yamaha Smooth Release technology, Clavinova offers the crisp tone heard when playing staccato as well as the lingering sound produced by releasing the keys more. This provides finely-nuanced response to the pianist’s playing.
The moment a pianist’s fingers are lifted from the keys of a grand piano, subtle changes occur in the instrument’s tone as the damper is lowered onto the strings to mute its sound. Key-Off samples features actual recordings of these changes, offering a faithful reproduction of the most subtle changes in the piano’s sound, allowing for a more realistic performance.
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. Since Real Grand Expression offers players superb sound, touch and pedaling, we’ve added escapement to deliver outstanding playability, repetition, and response without impeding performance. The Clavinova keyboards feature an escapement mechanism that reproduces this sensation near the bottom of the key dip. These keyboards have been adjusted to provide additional friction that balances key repetition and response without impeding performance.
Synthetic ebony and ivory keytops
Our fingers are more sensitive than we think, and for pianists, the texture of the piano keys is extremely important. The Clavinova features highly absorbent material that prevents fingers from slipping even after hours of practice, while retaining the ideal texture and feel.
