The Piano Action
Yamaha GH3X Digital Piano Action
The GH3X Piano Action was made to mimic a grand piano with out the hammers and maintenance. Weighted and graded the GH3x is heavier in the bass and lighter in the treble just like a real piano that this action is mimicking.
Towards the end of the keystroke you will feel the key “Let off” or the Escapement. This is done to mimic an acoustic piano action when the hammer is released from the players control before it strikes the string to prevent damage to the hammer shaft.

Virtual Resonance Modeling
A grand piano is a living, breathing instrument due to sympathetic resonance. When you strike a key you feel the vibration as it moves through the body of the piano. Resonance is created along the Dampers, Strings, The Duplex scaling and the cabinet/ body of the instrument. This is what gives a grand piano the celebrated nuances and the emotional depth of sound. The Clavinova has recreated this experience by using speakers and the inside cabinet of the CVP-701.
Built in Piano Room
The Piano Room features the world-class Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial concert grand pianos and has been expanded to include additional keyboard instruments including vintage electric pianos. In Session Mode, you can invite three additional session musicians into the room to accompany you as you practice and perform in 40 different musical styles. These session musicians will automatically follow your harmonies in either full-keyboard mode or split mode, and will also follow your volume expression using Dynamics Control. These session musicians can selectively be activated and deactivated depending upon your musical needs at the time. Within this special room you can even record your sessions with the touch of one button.
