Unsurpassed Beauty and Elegance

The Polished Ebony finish recreates the formal elegance and high-class appearance of a concert grand, while Dark Rosewood finish will complement and attractively furnish any interior.
The Ultimate in Piano Enjoyment
Authentic sound, elegant expressiveness
Unmistakably grand, the new CVP400 Series Clavinova puts the luscious, expressive sound of a real acoustic grand piano at your fingertips. The amazingly authentic piano sounds at the heart of this instrument were sampled from a full concert grand piano smoothly blended for the most natural dynamic changes. Special care was also taken to accurately reproduce the complex sound nuances when the dampers fall back onto the strings strings (Key Off), the rich sound when the damper pedal is pressed (Sustain), and even the special phenomenon when the hammer hitting the strings of one key causes the strings of other keys to vibrate (String Resonance).
Real grand piano key touch and response (CVP409/407/405/403/401)
The Natural Wood (NW) keyboard on the CVP409/407 uses real-wood white keys to reproduce as closely as possible the experience of playing an actual grand piano-including the authentic touch and feel of the keys, the weight balance between key and hammer, and the weight gradation between low and high keys. This specially crafted keyboard lets you use techniques possible only on real grand pianos, such as having successive notes blend smoothly even without pressing the damper pedal, or playing the same key repeatedly and quickly with perfectly natural articulation. The CVP409 also has Synthetic Ivory key tops that feature a soft and slightly porous surface, giving the keys added grip and a natural friction for improved ease in playing. Yamaha's famed Graded Hammer 3 (CVP405/403) and Graded Hammer (CVP401) technologies give those respective keyboards a remarkably natural piano touch and expressive response.
