HI ALL FROM THE CLAVINOVAGUY!

Post by clavinovaguy » 12 Feb 2016, 20:28

It is I, the Clavinovaguy, aka. Jim the Geezer. I'm 78 years old, and am the proud owner of a Clavinova CVP 307 that was gifted to me by my lovely wife of 59 years, Shirley, the "Goddess of the Desert." I took piano lessons at the age of eleven, for three years, and am still trying to learn how to play the piano, sixty-seven years later. Fortunately, learning is fun, so I'm really enjoying my golden years with it. Currently, my Clavinova has the flu, and is discombooberized (technical term) waiting for a new circuit board. Care to guess what a new circuit board costs for a Clavinova? $998.00 plus tax and installation, for a total of $1,550.00. That's one-fourth the cost of my Clavinova when it was new in 2007. Well, I hear the Goddess coming, so I gotta pretend I'm working so she doesn't present me with another assignment. Cheers to all. The Clavinovaguy

Yikes! That's a lot of money.
Too bad they couldn't install the replacement from a CVP 709 and turn it into a brand new model. :D

Welcome, and yes that is a large amount for the board but think of the enjoyment yet to come.

I don't think that would work, but you bring up a good point. Someone that knew electronics well enough may be able to buy all the internal electronic parts for a 709, and replace the old parts in an older Clavinova, and save some bucks. The cabinet would be the old Clavinova, but all the innards would be a 709. What do you think about that? Would that be possible? The Clavinovaguy

Hello and Welcome,

Hope you are back to playing. I had to comment on your use of the word "discombooberized" as I have not heard that term for more years than I can count. My Dad use to say it all the time. You brought a memory back to me. Thanks.
