Yamaha Clavinova Celebrates 30th Birthday – Digital Piano Range History Revealed

Clavinova 30th Anniversary
I have enjoyed Yamaha instruments for many years, in particular their keyboard & digital piano range and today Yamaha have announced that the Clavinova is celebrating its 30th anniversary.

Since 1983, Yamaha have released a variety of digital piano instruments – starting out with a very basic FM representation of sounds right up to the more modern and exquisitely captured samples taken from their elite acoustic range. It is fascinating to see, and in fact ‘hear’ how technology has progressed, the techniques used by Yamaha to evolve and adapt these hardware and software advancements over the years to bring us the performer a more realistic portrayal of a ‘real’ piano without many of the disadvantages.
