The Piano Action

Yamaha Grand Touch Piano Action

Yamaha CVP-809 GP Digital Piano Action


  • Grand Touch Piano action with Wooden Keys is Yamaha’s TOP of the Line Digital Piano Action.
  • 88 note Linear graded action – piano keys are heavier at the bottom and lighter at the top like a real grand piano!
  • Synthetic Ebony and Ivory Keytops for more control and a better feel.
  • Counterweighted White Keys for increased control while playing quietly.
  • Escapement – 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.

Yamaha CVP-809 GP Digital Piano

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.


Built in Piano Room
