Yamaha CVP-303 Clavinova Digital Piano

Truly Grand
Gorgeous in sound, elegant in appearance, the new CVP series Clavinovas feature a stunning new design that draws on the best of past CVP models. The amazingly authentic voices and dynamic styles deliver truly professional quality sound, while the sophisticated yet easy-to-use features (including Internet connectivity) make the instrument an endless source of musical enjoyment – for young and old alike. Just one touch and youll understand … why its truly grand!

Traditional craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology

Unsurpassed beauty and elegance
Every bit as beautiful as it sounds, the Clavinova radiates the dignified, commanding presence of a grand piano with its solid, finely finished cabinetry. The Polished Ebony finish (309PE only) recreates the formal elegance and high-class appearance of a concert grand, while the Polished Mahogany models (309PM only) have warm, natural wood grain to complement and attractively furnish any interior. The CVP Series sports several beautiful finishes: Polished Ebony (309PE), Polished Mahogany (309PM), Mahogany (307M, 305M, 303M), Cherry (307C, 305C, 303C, 301C), and Dark Rosewood (307, 305, 303, 301).

State-of-the-art technology delivers authentic sound

Exceptionally realistic AWM tone generation
The heart of the Clavinovas voices is in the AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) tone generation technology – providing instrumental sounds of amazing realism and depth. The piano voices in particular benefit from the new Dynamic Stereo Sampling (DSS) system, which features recordings of differently played dynamics – from loud to soft – in order to fully capture the varying nuances in timbre and tone of a grand piano. Stereo Sustain Samples recreate the unique resonance of the strings and soundboard of a real grand piano when the damper pedal is pressed, while Key-off samples include the characteristic sound that occurs when a key is released and the dampers fall back onto the strings.

The wide world of music at your fingertips

Play like a pro
Unleash the performer in you

Performance assistant technology makes playing like a pro easy for absolutely anyone! Whatever your level, you can make great sounding music the moment you first touch the keyboard. It's musical magic – everything you play is beautifully and professionally embellished based on the chords being played, and the accompaniment of the Clavinova follows your every move, playing in perfect rhythm and musical harmony. With Performance assistant technology turned ON, every note you play essentially becomes the "right" note!

Automatic professional backing for your performance
The Auto Accompaniment features of the Clavinova open up a new world of performance possibilities. The dynamic accompaniment styles encompass virtually every musical genre, and give you several different intros, variations, fill-ins, and endings to make you sound like a pro. If you dont know which style to choose, let the powerful Music Finder feature help. Simply select a song title or keyword, and it reconfigures the entire instrument, including the proper voices, style and effects.

Song playback and recording
When it comes to playing back popular songs with complete rhythmic backing and accompaniment, the Clavinova has you covered – with a total of 120 songs in the built-in Song Book (56 songs on the CVP-301). You can call up the music notation for each song, and even the lyrics for certain songs. For the creative musician, the Clavinova contains a virtual 16-track recording studio, letting you craft complex songs and arrangements one track at a time, using the realistic voices built into the instrument.
