What we think of the Yamaha Modus F02 digital piano:
The Yamaha Modus F02 digital piano is simply stunning. It incorporates the best features of the Yamaha Clavinova lineup of digital pianos with a truly elegant design that will become the focal point of any room. The RGE piano sound engine offers a rich and natural sound, and the speakers are great too providing superb clarity and resonance. It is available in a range of striking finishes including polished orange and polished red, both of which look very smart indeed.

Real Grand Expression (RGE) sound engine
This new sound engine, also found in the Clavinova CLP and CVP ranges of digital pianos. gives you the full playing response and expressive capability of a concert grand piano. In addition to providing smooth tonal changes that respond to your playing touch, it also features a Smooth Release function which clearly articulates staccato notes and produces the sound of lingering resonance when gently lifting your fingers from the keys - just like the soft damping action of real dampers. These effects capture the true essence of an acoustic grand piano to help you create and perform with authentic piano-like expression.
NW (Natural Wood) keyboard with synthetic ivory keytops and 88-key linear graded hammer action
The instrument’s keyboard has the luxurious feel of real ivory. The key surface is soft and slightly porous, giving the keys added grip and a natural friction that lets you play easily. The special Natural Wood keyboard uses real-wood white keys just as an actual grand piano. Moreover, Linear Graded Hammer provides an authentic action in which the lower keys are heavy in touch and the higher keys are light, with all the natural gradations in between. All in all, this gives you the performance functions and expressive power found only on grand pianos, including having repeated plays of the same note perfectly articulated, even when playing at high speed or with partial key release.
Optimal tone at any volume level
The Acoustic Optimizer is a new, unique Yamaha technology. Using a special design and position within the instrument, the Acoustic Optimizer physically adjusts the acoustical flow, which controls resonances and enriches the overall sound. The combination of Acoustic Optimizer and digital technologies provides an incredibly expressive capability.
