The Yamaha Clavinova CLP-785 is the flagship model in Yamaha’s new CLP-700 series. With GrandTouch Keyboardaction featuring the same individual key counterweights found in a grand piano, you’ll experience unrivaled realism in the resistance and return of each key. Sit down, close your eyes, and play—between the near-perfect sound, touch, and expressionism, you’ll swear you’re playing a world-renowned concert grand piano.

Features of the Clavinova CLP-785

The CLP-785 includes binaural sampling of the CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial for world-renowned grand piano sounds that resonate through the powerful 300W sound system and spruce cone speakers.

The GrandTouch-S™ Keyboard

Yamaha already did an amazing job of producing the best expressionism of any digital piano in the Yamaha Clavinova digital piano lines, but the GrandTouch-S™ keyboard takes it to a whole new level. The GrandTouch-S™ uses weighted, graded keys to reproduce the authentic touch, response, and natural key return of a grand piano.

Real Grand Expression 2

This feature in the Yamaha Clavinova CLP-785 allows you to use the slightest variations in your touch as you play, helping to capture your musical expression. You’ll experience Yamaha’s Smooth Release Technology, which captures the colors and nuances to the way you play, authentically replicating an acoustic grand piano’s touch and feel.

GP Response Damper Pedal

Enjoy the same damper pedal performance you’d experience on an acoustic grand piano. The Clavinova CLP-785 damper piano offers a grand piano-style resistance curve, starting out light and growing heavier as the pedal is depressed, creating a more realistic feel and response.

Touch Sensory Control Panel

With a touch, feel, and sound so similar to an acoustic piano, it’s no wonder Yamaha included a sensor control panel in the Yamaha Clavinova CLP-785. This control panel disappears when not in use to hide the powerful technology beneath the classic piano cabinetry to give you an even more authentic look and feel.

Binaural Sampling

You already know that the Yamaha Clavinova samples from two of the greatest Yamaha pianos in the world: the flagship Yamaha CFX concert grand piano and the Bösendorfer Imperial. With binaural sampling, the Yamaha CLP-785 reproduces an even more realistic, dynamic range and tone from these world-renowned pianos.

Virtual Resonance Modeling

The innovative Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) technology means the Yamaha Clavinova CLP-785 recreates the sound and reverberations you’d experience in a room with a grand piano. You’ll hear the resonance of an acoustic grand piano’s soundboard, rim, and frame, giving the sound an even more lifelike feeling. What’s even more impressive is that you will experience this resonance even while playing with headphones.

Fortepiano Voices

Play like the classical masters with piano voices specifically sampled to simulate the way great artists like Mozart and Chopin would have played.

Additional Features:

  • 4 Fortepiano Voices
  • 53 Voices
  • 14 Drum/SFX kits
  • 480 XG Voices

Differences Between the Clavinova CLP-785 and the CLP-685

The biggest difference you’ll notice between the Clavinova CLP-785 and the CLP-685 is the authentic grand piano touch and sound. While the Clavinova CLP-685 offered a realistic acoustic piano touch and sound, the CLP-785 takes this to another level with Grand Acoustic Imaging and Expression Modeling.

As an improvement to the CLP-685, the Yamaha Clavinova CLP-785 includes a heightened ability to play a more limitless range of sounds depending on the variations of touch and expression. It also even better simulates the mechanics of the hammers, strings, and keys in an acoustic grand piano to truly make you feel like you’re sitting at bench of one of the finest concert grand pianos worldwide.

In addition to these differences, the Clavinova CLP-785 also includes updated Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imerial Grand Piano sounds, new Fortepiano voices, and a touch sensor control panel.

Differences Between the Yamaha Clavinova CLP-745 and the CLP-785

The differences between the mid-level Clavinova CLP-745 and the CLP-785 include a Grandtouch™ keyboard with counterweighted keys for more realistic touch and playability. The CLP-785 also includes a GP Response Damper Piano, which simulates the resistance curve experienced with a traditional grand piano.

In addition to these differences, the Yamaha Clavinova CLP-785 also differs from the CLP-745 by offering additional voices including two additional Fortepiano voices, as well as having a touch sensor control panel which disappears when not in use.
