If you could dream up the ultimate digital piano, what would it look like? Most likely, it would be very close to the Yamaha CVP-809, their best Clavinova to date. From its gorgeous 9 inch LCD touchscreen display to the over 1600 voices with super articulation features, hundreds of accompaniment styles from all around the world, and instant song creating capabilities, the CVP-809 is packed with more features than you can imagine, making it the best digital piano for professionals and beginners alike.
World Class Sound
The flagship CVP-800 Series lets you choose the perfect piano tone for the music you want to play. Offering far more than just sampled sounds, the CVP-800 Series reproduces the Yamaha CFX concert grand, selected and played by the winner of the 2010 International Chopin Piano Competition, and the legendary Bӧsendorfer Imperial, both sampled in meticulous detail.
More Voices & Styles
Among the 1,605 on-board Voices in the CVP-809, there are plenty of non-piano Voices. In combination with the wide array of backing Styles, you’ll be able to enjoy great-sounding performances with polished introductions and endings and authentic band and orchestra accompaniments across a wide array of genres, including jazz and pop. Play your favorite tunes as they are written, or try your hand at arranging and recording your compositions with built-in 16-track USB Audio recording.
Realistic Piano Touch and Action
This superb sound has been paired with the GrandTouch keyboard, which allows pianists to play with nuanced dynamics through the entire range of the instrument, and faithfully reproduces the individual differences in the weight and return of each key. The flagship CVP-809 and CVP-809GP also feature counterweights that give them a superb touch very similar to that of a grand piano, with the subtle delicacy required when using techniques such as pianissimo.
