Yamaha Clavinova CSP Series
The reintroduction of CSP Clavinova has been long awaited and completes the trio of Yamaha Clavinova ranges.
CSP stands for Clavinova Smart Piano, and this is apparent in its design. Here is a Digital Piano with only two buttons! The two CSP models sit in-between the long-established CLP (Classic Piano) and CVP (Clavinova Versatile Piano) ranges. Whilst CLP Clavinova will still appeal to the purist piano players, and the CVP will continue be the choice of the player who wants the luxury of everything, CSP is ultimately the perfect piano for all the family.
So, what sets CSP apart from other Digital Pianos? It must be the combination of a fabulous design, dynamic sound system and a unique operating system. The instrument is controlled by Yamaha’s exclusive Smart Pianist app, which works on iOS and Android devices. This app takes away the need for a complicated control panel on the piano, as all the functions of the instrument are shown graphically and logically on a tablet or phone.
CSP will make pianists of all abilities smile. Advanced players will love the feel and response from the keyboard on both models. The CSP170 even has Yamaha’s renowned NWX action with white wooden keys. That means that you are playing on keys made from similar materials to those on an acoustic grand piano. Non-players will be entranced and amazed with the Stream Lights feature. These lights work in conjunction with the many songs already installed on the Smart Pianist app. CSP Clavinova will show the non-player which note to play and will then wait until you find the right one. You’ll be playing your first party piece in no time!
The Smart Pianist app also features the “Audio To Score” feature. This very clever feature creates a virtual sheet music score from the songs on your smart device, so you can play along with your favourite band or singer. For those of us who like to play “live”, you’ll love the automatic accompaniment feature. This offers you a comprehensive selection of musical genres that fit your favourite styles of music. Simply play a combination of three notes across the keyboard, and CSP will join in with a dynamic backing accompaniment. You’ll sound like a band or an orchestra, even though you’re playing alone.
Recording your playing is one of the many fun things you’ll do with the CSP Clavinova. Record your music with the Smart Pianist app and create audio files that you can save and listen to anytime on your smart device. With over 400 of Yamaha’s state-of-the-art sounds to choose from, you can sound like anything from a piano to an orchestra, and from classical music to the latest EDM pop and club hits.
CSP150 and the more luxurious CSP170 (with the white wooden keys and enhanced sound system) are a welcome re-addition to Yamaha’s superb range of Clavinovas. They are the ultimate fun instrument and here at Rimmers Music, we love them almost as much as you will. Don’t miss out on the fun – you could be playing one today!

More About the Yamaha CSP-170...
The Yamaha Clavinova CSP-170 Digital Piano is ideal for musicians requiring an instrument to suit the entire family. The sound source combines Bosendorfer and CFX samples for an engaging sound with complex tonal response. The CSP-170's NWX keyboard has real wooden keys and ebony/ivory simulation tops for an authentic feel that's comfortable throughout your performance. This model features over 600 voices ranging through a variety of styles, suiting modern and traditional musicians alike. The Smart Pianist feature connects the Clavinova to your smartphone or tablet, allowing you to easily edit and enhance the piano to your exact preference. The CSP-170's satin black finish is a classic finish, whilst the upright design will complement any environment.
The Smart Pianist app provides access to new advancements in music development. By connecting your smartphone or tablet via the dedicated USB cable slot, you can instantly access new features to assist personalising the CSP’s features. The ‘Audio to Score’ function works out your songs’ chord progressions, and provides the sheet music instantly to play along with. The backing band feature allows you to scroll through a vast variety of instruments to add a full band sound to your pieces. The CSP’s Master Tune accessibility is a seamless way to edit and enhance the piano to your specific preference.
This digital piano uses sampling from two bespoke acoustic pianos for the most realistic tone possible. The CFX is one of Yamaha’s most popular concert grand piano, whilst the Bosendorfer Imperial is widely regarded as one of the world’s finest acoustic instruments. By combining the characteristics of these instruments, Yamaha’s samples have the detail and authenticity of a true acoustic piano. The keys are sampled individually, before being tuned with each other so that your performances sound as natural as possible. Yamaha brings acoustic expression to digital convenience with the Clavinova’s samples.
Yamaha understand that students are most inspired by learning their favourite songs, so have incorporated a song recognition function into this model. By loading the song, the piano will distinguish the chord and melody patterns before displaying them on a score sheet for you. The on board stream lights guide your hands to the timing and positions for each note, for a flawless performance.
The feel of the CSP-170 lets musicians perform at their highest ability. This model’s NWX keyboard is both comfortable and sensitive for all styles of player. Each key has a core made from specially dried wood for a classic response. The hammers feature a weighted feel with each register having a progressively lighter response, which is similar to an acoustic piano. The NXW keyboard features the escapement mechanism that copies a grand piano’s ‘click’ at the lower third of each key. This allows you to become familiar with the exact response of each key, for a comfortable performance.
