The Legacy of the CFX Continues

Preserving tradition is not the same thing as refusing to change; rather, it is from the ongoing search for perfection that traditions emerge.
And when it comes to the tradition of crafting a grand piano, there is a sound, a tone to which only those who strive constantly to outdo themselves can aspire. For almost half a century, Yamaha's world-renowned C Series grand pianos have continued through a gradual process of refinement. The CFX full concert grand piano was built from the knowledge, techniques, and experience gained during this long period. Craftsmen poured everything they new into the creation of this instrument, seeking to attain sonic perfection and achieving bold new steps in piano design. The CX Series extends this work further, providing a clear sound with a clean attack, sparkling tone, and transparent harmonies, all encased in an elegant, flowing form.
The end result is a series of instruments that is refined in tone, yet bold in design—the product of a dedication to innovation that allows Yamaha to remain true to its musical heritage. CX Series pianos represent progress that is commensurate with Yamaha's 125th anniversary year - progress that will transform any room in which you play into a concert hall.

Revolutionary new music wire in the middle and treble registers offers beautiful sustain and harmony.


The hammers used in the CX Series utilize the same felt as the CFX, giving these pianos bright tonal colors and a finely nuanced sound.


As with the CF Series, Yamaha utilizes unique crown manufacturing techniques on CX Series pianos that allow the soundboard to resonate with the emotions of the performer.
