Yamaha Clavinova CSP170 Digital Piano Satin White Package
What We Think
The CSP 170 really took me by surprise when first playing it! The fact that you can play it as just a standard piano or you can play it with layered sounds with capability of an iPad really helped me broaden my music taste. Also the capability of being able to play along with a favourite piece whatever style it may be, was also incredibly handy as the “follow the light” system was a real game changer for me when learning to play a specific song. The guide feature, which allows you to follow the lights as the songs playing, is such a good idea! This really helped me progress in my piano playing. The technology built into it is phenomenal, and the way it detects your playing so it knows when you’re going into a chorus when you’re playing along is SO clever. Well done Yamaha!
“Playing piano is such a fun thing to do, but it can feel a little solitary at times. Guitarists, brass and woodwind players can meet up with their mates and have a jam – it’s not so easy with a piano! Clavinova CSP brings your backing band to your home. The Smart Pianist app for iOS not only allows you to control your Clavinova with ease, but also gives you a professional backing band to play along with. From Classical to the latest songs, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Even if you’re a complete beginner, Smart Pianist will have you up-and-running in no time. Just follow the guide lights, and your band will wait for you to play the right notes!
Piano playing isn’t solitary any more. Thanks to CSP170, it’s for everyone.”
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.
