Real Grand Expression - Sound, Touch, Pedals
The CVP-601's expressive capabilities have been developed using Yamaha's Real Grand Expression - the integration of acoustic sounds, touch and pedals into a digital piano. As you play the CVP-601 you will truly feel as though you are playing a grand piano.
The RGE Sound Engine delivers ultimate expressive capabilities with perfectly sampled tones. The Smooth Release of the keys deliver smooth variation depending on the touch you place on each key whilst the String Resonance gives the mellow sound of other strings resonating.
The 88 GH3 (Graded Hammer 3) keys consistently reproduce the feeling of playing a grand piano. The CVP-601's damper pedal with half effect further expands your play.
The CVP-601 piano boasts a massive 867 voices (including Mega and Super Articulation special voices) with 257 accompaniment styles. The 128 note polyphony means you can play dense pieces without any notes dropping out.

New intuitive features like Piano Room allow you to choose your own settings and piano sounds. Vary things such as the piano type, lid position and ambiance and sound as if you are playing in a church or on a huge stage all from the comfort of your own home!
Backing Band and Orchestra
Playing with a backing track instantly transforms you to a member of a full orchestra. High quality voices like Super Articulation bring a new dimension to the experience. Choose from a huge variety of accompaniment styles from varying genres using the CVP-601's Mega Voice Technology.
For less experienced players the Chord Fingering can be set to produce a fitting accompaniment using just one finger whilst the Chord Tutor gives a perfect overview of all chords. The Style Recommendation function can help you find the best style for any piece.

When you add this product to your shopping basket, you will be provided with our standard courier delivery option, which is a 'to your door' service. You may need to help the delivery driver as this product comes packaged in large boxes!
This option may not be suitable if you are unable to help the driver if required, or if you need the piano delivering upstairs but you don't have anyone else available to help. Please consider whether this is the most appropriate delivery service for you, as other delivery options are also available for an additional cost.
2 Man Delivery Service
If you select this option, two delivery personnel will deliver the piano boxes to any ground floor room of your choice, rather than just your front door. Please note that this service will take a few days longer than the standard courier service and the courier company will call you to arrange a convenient delivery date after you have placed the order.
If you would like more information, please call us on 0843 155 0800.
