"Real Grand Expression" - Voices, Touches, Pedals - Perfect for grand piano playing
The term "Real Grand Expression" defines the expressive capabilities of the Clavinova digital piano. It not only fully reflects the timbre, touch keys and pedals of the grand piano, but also subtly combines the traditional piano-making craftsmanship with these three elements. Through the way you touch keys and pedal, you can fully present the tone you want to express, giving you a grand piano-like playing experience.
Detailed and beautiful sound
Hear the sound as if it were played live
The grand piano sounds are sampled from Yamaha's top-of-the-line grand piano, CFIIS. A senior piano tuner selects a piano that is most suitable for recording samples and tunes it to the best condition. And pay attention to every nuanced detail of the recording, resulting in a perfectly harmonious piano sound.
Smooth pitch-changing performance in perfect harmony with keyboard play
Sound processing that changes according to the playing expression
By changing the way the keys are touched, the player can freely express subtle changes such as the volume of the playing, the strength of the piano sound, and the softness and brightness of the tones.
The CLP-525 perfectly reproduces the sound with rich details through careful sampling of each sound for a long time, and coupled with Yamaha's unique technology, it can perfectly and sensitively respond to the tonal changes of the player's playing.
From staccato to smooth, it fully reflects the player's sensitive and excellent playing performance.
Paired with Yamaha's smooth tone release technology, the Clavinova is able to extend the crisp tone when playing staccato. Respond to the player's meticulous playing expression.

256 maximum number of voices
The increase in the number of vocalizations makes it possible to play a large number of notes at the same time without the lack of vocalizations causing some notes to be missed.
First-class playing experience
GH3 (Graded Hammer 3) gradient keyboard
In addition to having a grand piano-like percussion system and a springless device, it is also equipped with a GH3 gradient keyboard to reproduce the feel of a real piano with heavier keys in the lower range and lighter keys in the upper range. At the same time, three sets of induction systems are built in, which can accurately sense the delicate sound changes that the player wants to present, which is very similar to the tactile feeling of playing a grand piano.
The ivory-like keyboard finish maintains a tactile feel for extended play.
The elegant imitation ivory keyboard allows people to enjoy the touch of the keys close to the fingers like a top grand piano. At the same time, the soft and breathable surface of the keys increases the grip and friction when playing the keyboard, which can avoid the dilemma of slippery hands caused by long-term playing or practice, making it easier to play.
Keyboard Reinforcement Stabilizer - Yamaha's unique keyboard technology that further enhances keyboard stability and durability
The keyboard plays an extremely important role in expressing subtle emotions. A comfortable playing feel is necessary in order to maintain the sensitive tactile feeling of playing for a long time. Yamaha features a keyboard-enhancing stabilizer on all 88-key keyboards, providing players with a natural and authentic feel and improving keyboard stability and durability.
Even the last part of the key has a natural and realistic feel
The construction of the CLP-525 keyboard is to take the entire keyboard support point within the instrument body as far as possible from the top of the keys, which improves playability and comfort.
This device provides very good keyboard progression dynamics. Even if the main position of the performance is on the back end of the black keys or the white keys, it can show rich performance expressions according to your delicate playing dynamics, and further expand the performance. range of strength.
The keys of the Clavinova keyboard are designed to be far away from the support point, so that the keys can be pressed smoothly when playing the keys close to the body.
Excellent sound technology
The overall resonance system is like a traditional piano
Just like a traditional piano, in order to ensure the best state of the Clavinova resonance design, the positioning of the horn and the material of the body have been completely confirmed under the delicate calibration. To bring the sound closer to a real grand piano, the instrument's tone escapement is designed so that the sound can reach the listener's ears without being restricted by the body of the instrument.
Sound optimization system - ensures a balanced tone
The CLP-525 is equipped with a sound optimization system that adjusts the flow and tone control of the sound.
The new sound-optimizing technology was developed from Yamaha's longstanding knowledge of traditional instruments. This feature enables the digital piano to deliver a natural, smooth and rich sound.
Built-in Song Recording
The recording function of the CLP-525 allows you to check your performance at any time by recording your own performance with just a simple button. Additionally, you can record up to two tracks of parts and play them back simultaneously. That is, you can record the performance of the left and right hands separately, or add different Voice parts.
The recording file format will be saved as Standard MIDI file (SMF). If you install compatible software on your computer, you will be able to play your recorded performance files.
"IAC Smart Audio Control" is a function suitable for playing at home.
When playing at home, it is not always possible to play at a high volume, so the ability to adjust the volume becomes quite useful. Often, when turning down the volume, you will find it difficult to hear the highs and lows clearly. But the IAC Intelligent Audio Control (IAC) feature on the CLP-525 automatically adjusts the sound so you can enjoy the correct sound balance at any volume setting.
The Musical Instrument APP expands your musical horizons.
Combination of Clavinova with APP
If you have an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, you will be able to download and use Yamaha apps to make playing easier and more fun! (Some apps require a different country account to download, and app content may vary by region)
