Virtuosos of tomorrow are seated at a Yamaha piano today
Yamaha grand pianos play an integral part in the growth and development of emerging artists. Prized not only for their tone and touch, but also for their consistency and durability, they are to be found wherever musicians are making their mark. Long a leading choice of the finest schools and conservatories, Yamaha grands are equally prominent on stage at international piano competitions and performing arts organizations around the world.
Delivering the quality and performance you've come to expect
To earn acceptance by the world's leading professionals, a piano must be far more than simply adequate. It must be truly a superlative instrument, to excel in every aspect. Of only a handful of instruments chosen for this honor, Yamaha grands are consistently played and praised by some of the greatest concert artists of our time, and recognized with distinction throughout the performing arts community.
The CFIIIS is skillfully handcrafted in the Yamaha concert grand factory. Bass strings and hammers are hand-made. Only the finest of materials are used in this piano. The high-level factory craftsmen perform every aspect of construction. The customer is assured of having the very highest quality of piano manufactured by Yamaha, the largest manufacturer of pianos in the world.
Seasoned for Destination
Yamaha specifically seasons this piano for the U.S. market. The tuning stability, finish and overall musical integrity are enhanced over the long life expected of a fine piano.
Permanent Crown Solid Soundboard
Yamaha utilizes a process that creates a permanent crown in the soundboard and at the same time minimizes soundboard cracking. The customer can feel confident that not only will the piano last for years, but the beautiful sound of a Yamaha piano will last a lifetime.
Solid Spruce Soundboard
At the Yamaha lumber mill and wood processing facility, the finest spruce is quarter sawn; and less than 10% of the total is selected and reserved for Yamaha piano soundboards. Solid spruce, rather than laminated spruce or poplar, is the choice in all fine pianos for the best amplification of sound, best tone and sustain.
Full Length Ribs
Yamaha reinforces the crown in its soundboards by using ribs that continue to the edge of the soundboard, and are glued into the notched liner (or inner rim on the grand piano). Reinforcing the crown ensures that the tone quality will remain for years and years and improves tuning stability.
Extruded Aluminum Action Rails
Yamaha engineering developed a unique Extruded Aluminum Alloy Action Rail (bearing a Yamaha patent) that is one of the best innovations for improving a piano action in the last 100 years. The usual fluctuations in wood rails that effect touch, caused by periodic weather changes, are eliminated allowing stable, long-lasting action regulation.
Each key of a Yamaha piano is individually tested and measured for the corrections needed to obtain uniform "down weight" pressure. Yamaha actions play correctly and uniformly. This balancing helps ensure a lifetime of superior touch and control across the keyboard.
Yamaha uses Spruce for the keys on all models of pianos. Spruce is very light and possesses a very high ratio of strength to weight. It's ideal for key construction, even though its cost is greater than either sugar pine or bass wood. Yamaha keyboards respond quickly-providing fast repetition for the most intricate piece of music. Yamaha keyboards withstand heavy use over years of fortissimo passages.
