CX Series

The most recorded piano in history.


Some of the most timeless hits have been recorded on a Yamaha C Series piano. Now this legendary piano has been refined with many of the innovations from our flagship CF. The back posts, soundboard, ribs, strings and hammers have been redesigned for a more delicate attack, rich harmonics, infinite colors and a beautiful resonance capable of long sustained pianissimo tones and nuanced, expressive fortissimo. In the process of refining a legend, the CX has redefined what a grand piano could be.

    CX pianos have been redesigned with many of the innovations of our flagship CFX to give artists a more versatile tonal palette while still maintaining the bright, percussive sound that has helped make C series pianos the most recorded in history.
  • Closeup view of a soundboard not installed in the piano.
    The soundboard of the CX takes its cues from our flagship CFX. The finest spruce from our Kitami Mill in Hokkaido, Japan is delicately shaped by our craftsmen to create the iconic CX series sound.
  • View of the three horizontal back posts coming into a corner to join with a fourth vertical one.
    Like our flagship CFX, the back posts of the CX are crafted from the finest spruce and made thicker and more substantial to support the most powerful fortissimo.
  • Two small wood pieces with each head wrapped in felt on a table with another one plus a handful of felt on table in background.
    We took everything we learned from our flagship CFX and reinvented the hammers to create the iconic sound of the CX with even more range of tonal colors and nuance.

    Yamaha artisans wind each bass string to work in harmony with the hammers, soundboard and every part of this exceptional instrument.
