The Yamaha N1X is the newest hybrid grand piano addition to their AvantGrand series. It provides the sound, touch, and authentic feel of a 9′ concert grand piano in a fraction of the space and price. The N1X’s wooden keys and wooden action are identical to ones found in premium acoustic pianos, but you never need to have it tuned, since it doesn’t have strings!
First introduced at the 2019 NAMM show, the N1X improves upon its predecessor in a number of ways – new piano samples from Yamaha flagship CFX 9′ concert grand and Bösendorfer Imperial Grand, more powerful speakers, more instrument voices (such as digital pianos, celesta, harpsichord, and organs), binaural 3D audio of the CFX piano through headphones, and now the ability to use a Yamaha UD-WL01 USB wireless LAN adapter to connect with the free Smart Pianist app for iPhone and iPad. Smart Pianist makes it easy to navigate through all the instrument voices, and customize the piano sounds to an incredible degree – it’s like having all the tools of a master piano technician at your disposal!

The Yamaha N1X is an ideal instrument for performance, teaching and practicing in small studios, and even for escaping into your own musical oasis through the headphones’ binaural 3D sound of the CFX concert grand.

World Class Sound

With two world-renowned concert grand pianos available at the touch of a button, the CLP Series lets you choose the perfect piano tone for the music you want to play. Offering far more than just sampled sounds, the CLP-600 Series reproduces the Yamaha CFX concert grand and the legendary Bӧsendorfer Imperial in meticulous detail.

Genuine Concert Piano Touch and Action

Thanks to a specially designed grand-piano action and a wooden keyboard, the AvantGrand truly becomes an extension of your body as you play. The nuanced touch and response of the grand piano are an essential standard yardstick for piano quality. It offers the player a specially-developed grand piano action that features the same configuration as the action of a real grand. The hammers strike the “strings” from underneath, allowing minute adjustments to the weight distribution of the hammers, and to the movement of the hammers themselves, for a smoother feel when playing. In addition to a hammer sensor, this instrument employs a non-contact key sensor that has no effect on the movement of the keys, affording excellent recognition of the player’s pressure on the keyboard, timing, and the other delicate nuances that affect musical expression. This combination provides an impressive sensitivity for the entire range from pianissimo through to fortissimo, and the ability to translate even the swiftest trills of the pianist with transparency. The wood construction of the keyboard mirrors that of the grand piano, and features New Ivory II on the white keys. This is a unique material developed by Yamaha, with a texture superbly close to that of natural ivory, allowing you to play swift passages with ease while also offering a sure response for slower pieces.

Authentic Grand Piano Pedals

Light to the touch at first, with subtle firmness partway through its travel, and lightening again as the player pushes further; the pedals of the grand piano have subtly different stages that can be felt when the pedal is depressed. Skilled players take advantage of these pedal movements by using extremely delicate pedaling that allows them to achieve finely nuanced expression in their play. In developing this instrument, we set out to reproduce the sensations of a grand piano’s pedals as faithfully as possible. The resulting pedal allows for music as you believe it should sound, equally responsive for more impressionistic pieces that require a lot of half-pedaling.

Unprecedented Realism

The sound of an acoustic piano resonates throughout its entire body. The bass range in particular is an essential part of the reverberation that is continually transmitted to a player’s body. In the AvantGrand, this is replicated by our newly-developed Tactile Response System (TRS) that focuses on reproducing reverberation. This system features two transducers in the soundboard, the area underneath the keyboard, resonating natural reverberation throughout the entire instrument. The player receives the natural sound felt f rom hands touching on the keyboard and feet depressing the pedals; the epitome of real piano playing. This system can be turned on and off, and the vibration set to one of three levels.
