Yamaha CVP-809GP Clavinova Grand Digital Piano - Polished Ebony
In 1983, Yamaha introduced the world to a new kind of piano. A compact electric keyboard that could faithfully recreate the power and performance of a concert grand. Nearly four decades later, the Yamaha Clavinova continues to inspire players of all levels with its authentic acoustic action, elegant design and the unmistakable tone of the finest concert grand pianos ever made. It’s no wonder TIME included the Clavinova on its list of the most influential technologies of the last fifty years.
Our flagship CVP is everything you’d expect from a Clavinova. And more. Bring in virtual session musicians. Harmonize with backup singers. Add authentic voices to hundreds of digital instruments. An intuitive color touchscreen controls a new world of entertaining possibilities. You won’t believe how it sounds. Or what it can do.

Accompaniment Styles lets you add ensembles of virtual musicians to your performances simply by playing chords in real time. Add any one of hundreds of musical genres, from small jazz ensembles to full orchestras. You control the harmony and dynamics and these ensembles follow you. Developed by professional studio musicians, it’s the perfect accompaniment for any style of music you can imagine.

Guide lamps help intuitively guide your fingers through some of your favorite songs. Choose a song in our Follow Lights song library and the recording plays along with you at your speed. You’ll be playing the right notes at the right time, in no time.
TRULY AUTHENTIC KEYBOARD VOICES
Yamaha Super Articulation 2 Voices (SA2) add natural non-keyboard sounds like fret noise and body knocks from guitars and inhales, exhales and glissandos from wind instruments to your performance. You’ll sound like you’ve taken years of lessons on every instrument simply by playing your keyboard.

Invite up to three virtual session musicians into your Piano Room to accompany you as you play in 40 different musical styles.

CVP Series Testimonials
Schools love the CVP first and foremost because of the amazing piano sound and feel! I have been told many times that schools appreciate the user-friendly recording for rehearsals/performances. Another aspect to the CVP that schools enjoy is being able to easily record contest pieces – You can record soloist in one take to a USB for easy recording! With the many instrument sounds and backing tracks on the CVP I have also been told educators can easily demonstrate instruments of rhythms of other cultures when talking about certain topics.
Churches love the CVP because of the amazing piano sound and feel. I have been told the high quality organ, woodwinds, and strings really add to the worship music experience. If you have many piano players at your church you can easily set the CVP up to be customized to each pianist’s preferences. Recording has never been easier if you are working with choirs or perhaps you are not able to make it to a service as well.
For home use the CVP is very versatile! You have an amazing piano, almost endless instruments to pick from for playing or recording, and the same with backing tracks! Your creative options are nearly endless. The play along features are incredibly engaging and fun and you can also sing karaoke if you’d like.
