Questions and Answers
Q/ Hi Graham,
I’m very impressed by your website with its comprehensive information. I am a retired piano teacher who hasn’t been able to play for several years due to a personal tragedy. I am just about ready to resume playing and would like to purchase a Clavinova. Before my circumstances changed, I was living abroad and had a Yamaha P-125 and a MOX 8. I had been writing children’s music for pleasure with the aim to try to publish. I was just beginning to understand Cubase etc and then all changed. The Yamahas were sold. I wondered about getting another keyboard with add-ons, but I think I’ve come to the conclusion that a good digital piano might be best.
Can you please tell me the difference between the CLP 5 series and the 6 series, specifically 545 and 645? Since I’m getting a bit arthritic, I don’t want to spend a great amount.
Many thanks for any help!
R/ Hi Barbara
The CLP645 has a brand new key action.
It feels closer to playing a real piano than
the older CLP545.
Its key touch is also more responsive, so
you have to work less to get a fast and
more reliable repetition from it.
The sound quality of the CLP645 is also
warmer, more resonant and a cleaner tone.
All in all it is a much better piano all round.
Thanks for your reply. One more question, please. Is there a huge difference between the CLP 635 and 645? I read your views on the wooden addition and feel that I don’t need it.
The wooden actions these days are MUCH better
than a few years ago.
It does make a difference to the feel of the keys.
They are firmer and you can control the dynamics
But the CLP635 is still very good.
For me it is more pleasurable and satisfying to
sit down and play the CLP645, because I feel
I can get more out of it musically.
