Yamaha Clavinova CLP-220
See the reviews below.


I use it for 6 months. It suited me until I decided to drive Grand2 The Steinberg on my PC. Unfortunately, the keyboard does not have the USB (standard, however, spread widely), I had to buy an adapter Midi / USB 49 €. It also lacks entries for ironing out the sound card directly into the speakers.

I also began to have trouble neighborhood when I play with headphones at night (small poorly insulated apartment) because the keys are particularly noisy, something that I missed when tested in store. A note for fans of black keys to sweaty hands, as they are a bit slippery. Failure apparently corrected by adding synthetic ivory substitute on the series.


As discussed below, the sound is somewhat flat and spacious. I confirm. Add the reverb did not change much. I do not use today with almost no external sound banks.


The euphoria Yamaha will not last long with me. Beyond the "fine piece of furniture" is hiding a piano but eventually correct it the minimum face of concurrency. Brand in tune gives the impression here to rest on its laurels for best option to charge any price, every time pretext to go to the upper range.

Yamaha Clavinova CLP-220
-I will not repeat the technical, the first to notice everything.
Unlike the second-opinion, since this space is reverb is included in the
keyboard, Room, Hall 1, Hall 2 and stage and depth of each type of reverb and
-You can record your performance on a sequence (one after it
then delete réenrgistrement is not a 16-track)
Built-metronome, tempo adjustment
-Sensitivity setting of the keyboard, MIDI IN and OUT connectors that can download songs from your computer to the Clavinova, 2 headphone jacks,
-50 Pieces of demos with partitions.

- Grand Piano 1 (great with the reverb)
- Grand Piano 2 (tone more suited to the popular style)
- E Piano 1
- E Piano 2
- Harpsichord 1
- Harpsichord 2
- Vibraphone
- Church Organ 1
- Church Organ 2
- Violins
Overall the sounds other than a piano are very good.


- Having bought this piano for my daughter to study and my thing is rather the guitar (I play 30 years) and the home studio. I studied 2 years with a piano teacher, and I confess, I got given it's stronger than me from buying this wonderful instrument. I wanted to touch a piano, it was on that compared to my arranger is not the same, at least with little experience the feel at the moment for me. The configuration for me who a home studio is a breeze, the manual simple and sufficient (5 minutes I had read everything and all included).


The grand piano is perfect for me, I find it very realistic. The effects are correct, the term I do not have a problem.


I use it for 4 weeks (assiduously)
I love the feel and the sound of the Grand Piano
Value for money in 1300 (it is a black lacquer) I find it okay
This is my first piano study, and that's fine for starters, I do it again this choice.

Yamaha Clavinova CLP-220


Versatile, so I am looking for an instrument or sound and touch are as neutral as possible


Okay, its flat, somewhat spacious trs


On the advice of some members of Aviss this site, I tried all CLP-220 and 230 and my God what a bad surprise: as a pianist, I t's. May be that my expectations about the product taient too large.
We are far from piano touch and sound does not rise (as if there was no case of rsonnance).

Hipopo75's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Yamaha Clavinova CLP-220
88 keys - heavy touch (touch piano)
10 sounds: two grand pianos, electric pianos 2, two harpsichords, two organs, strings, vibraphone.
MIDI out
3 pedals. From left to right: soft, sostenuto, strong.
Record: 1 Track / 1 piece

Size: 140.7 x 42.4 x 81.9 cm

Weight of the piano: 42kg
Carton weight: 65kg

Available in four finishes:
- Rosewood, sober trs, trs class
- Cherry, trs clean, very modern;
- Mahogany, trs ugly;
- Black lacquered more expensive, but no class. In this finish, clavinova 220.230 and 240 are in fact ridiculous because only parts are lacquered. Yamaha could have made an effort even when, especially given the price that we pay this option is "black laququot;.


User manual
Trs is clear, nothing wrong.
There is also a sheet showing a hit keyboard shortcuts. This sheet is indispensable in the Premire weeks of use.
A booklet of 50 pieces of score music is also classic Submitted. The piano sr intgre well these pieces in its internal memory. A beginners will have plenty to do.
The mtronome
Simple. It is not because it is dsagrable adjustable volume.
FYI, I have a little over 6 years of piano derrire me. I play on the Gaveau family and have some fun during the Pleyel of my grand-mre. Regarding the touch of the clavinova, for short, I would say it is simply excellent. The touch of this piano numrique is clearly in the group of head of all those I've experienced.
Note that the keys make less noise, unlike some pianos a big o "plop" and "tock" is heard each time you press, even modrment, a key.
The pedals
- The soft pedals varies slightly trs trs patch, but not the tone and volume as indicated in the manual. To hear a diffrence PDAL supported and over, you really listen. In the beginners I had a doubt, I thought mine DCON and I'm all on the same MODEL vrifier store. Test me confirm that this silent PDAL indeed the just for show and / or esthtisme.
- The sostenuto pedals work well trs, even if it does not really utilitbr /> - the strong pedals - the only really useful - it also works well trs.
6 buttons, a volume knob, a start / stop, and that's it. It's minimalist. Some prfreront A model with a screen full of buttons, but I wanted something that looks like a piano, not a synth with a dash. Just a piano. MODEL With this, I have used.

In short, it's perfect, nothing wrong use. I put 10/10.


The grand piano is a simply sublime. The sound is beautifully rounded. It's like a grand piano. To play classical, one can better RVer. The very first time I heard him, I took a slap. Really.
In contrast, the grand piano 2, he, I like much less. The sound is a bit mtallique, acute, and I do not like this kind of stamp-l. To play classical, it is not the IDAL. But for those who play ragtime or jazz, maybe they will be delighted with this Piano2? I found mdiocre. It looks like what 'lon hear in other brands. If notes are beautiful and trs prcises, others as a feedback, and I find it really dtestable. Nothing to do with the Piano1 so.
As for other sounds, for what little I use them, they seem to me correct. Neither sublime nor ugly, correct.
The amplification.
The CLP-220 is fitted with a system that 2x20W. It's more than enough. It RULES volume knob to three quarters and we have a piano. There's really no need for more in his living room. For my part, I do not use rgl that half have more than enough to me. And my downstairs neighbor is probably also less EMBT.
The kill-joys say that the sound did not sound the same. That's true. That's true but ... Trs average level of acoustic sound, was there, and I probably prfrerais my clavinova, rgl large Piano1. And I do not even mdiocres acoustic pianos. There a. .. much.
For each technology, its advantages and inconvnients.
If you intend to play your piano with headphones, invest in a quality headphone. I have no less than 3 headphones (HD201, PX200, PRO550) and a lot of in-ear headphones for portable yet but I shall decide to invest, and I do not regret it because I hear the diff ence. I advise you to purchase a Sennheiser Hi-Fi. Or other mark but if you want a headphone open and Hi-fi. Mine is an HD595. He is currently 139 euros on the net. There is also a MODEL HD555 99 euros and is made of the same barrel. The HD515, it has lower reputable. These three headsets are comfortable and trs can be worn for hours without problem.
I deprecated the HD201 is a closed headphone so long tiring. Moreover, he did not sound fabulous. I deprecated the more prodipe PRO550 which is the worst crap I've ever given t have hands. This headphone is so low it looks for mdiums and more treble. To listen to hip-hop can be excellent but is it for the piano, no. For a, it must be headphones as neutral as possible.
It is better to play on a CLP220 with HD555 for example, that a CLP280 with PRO550. There is no doubt the above. So if you want to play with headphones, put the award, worth it.
If you are not and Fortun I can advise you a little in-ear headphones: the Sennheiser MX450 + of purchase for an extension cable as it is unfortunately too short. This little headset dfend really well. on the other hand, there will be more tiring than open headphones.

I put 9 / 10. I persist and sign, a grand piano of the CLP-220 is sublime. I have also not found a sound as beautiful at the competitors. I take back a point for Piano2 because it pales in ct, 1. Note: I test the clavinova suprieurs and unfortunately I made the same observation.


I would do it for 6 months and the same choice if c'tait again. The report qualittoucher & sound) money left on the floor all the others.

Play 3 am if we want is something absolutely gnial. I'm really happy to have trs plunge. I was looking for a piano for my apartment numrique a student, can not bring the piano Obviously familly home. I've long thought my purchase. MODEL buy a used or new? Buy clavinova - plbiscit widely on the web - or a piano numrique another brand? Buy the Yamaha MODEL first prize - the YDP131 - or save 200 euros more and have the CLP220, MODEL cheapest range of Yamaha Clavinova CLP? MODEL buy a first price or the average range? How long does it take to have something correct? Etc., etc.. I made no fewer than six shops in two cities diffrent to test the maximum MODEL and as long as possible. Even a piano score numrique expensive and there is little notice of the consumer. The only way to get it right: even self-test.

My opinion: the Clavinova are good reputable and it is not usurped. In fact, hard to do better than clp220. Finally, if: ivory keys and bne, even when it would be classier. And that of real wood plutt against plate. But hey, a hand, there's nothing wrong on this clavinova. At the touch, it's nickel, and its level, too. The models suprieurs worth it really euros Difference? If I had thought this is not the 220 that I bought. For my part, I found the GH3 too hard and chantillonage INTERESTED 3 levels but really not necessary.
May be the CLP230 is it for some INTERESTED (for GH3, the many buttons and LED screen)? ... May be the 240 is it for other INTERESTED (GH3, LED screen, the many keys, the dynamic chantillonage, USB, 2x40W)? ... But for me .... I, who wanted a piano numrique correct. Just a piano ... Being a piano, a, dj rev 220 does well, so why pay more? The rest is dispensable frills.
