Yamaha gallery collection piano hero image background

The Gallery Collection takes its design cues from classic 19th century European pianos. These traditional uprights are beautiful inside and out with a Yamaha advanced soundboard, precision components and a bright, balanced, warm tone. You simply can’t take your eyes, or your ears, off them.

  • Sound boards standing vertically in rolling racks at the piano factory.
    The soundboards and ribs in our Gallery Collection pianos are crafted from solid spruce that has been hand selected at our Kitami Mill in Hokkaido, Japan, giving these pianos a richer, more resonant voice and evenly balanced timbre across the entire keyboard.
  • View of the back of an upright with the soundboard and posts visible.
    Years of cutting-edge research, including our proprietary wood-drying process, result in back posts that maintain their shape, strength and resonance for years to come.
  • View of the back of an upright piano open to show the back posts supporting the board.
    Yamaha was the first company to use an advanced Vacuum Shield Mold casting technology called V-Pro to create a stronger, lighter, more durable frame. Every Gallery Collection piano features a full-perimeter frame built to our exacting specifications at our Iwata Forge in Japan.
  • Rows of hammers installed in an upright piano being built.
    Gallery Collection hammers are crafted of the finest materials and painstakingly designed for each model to provide optimum tone, response and a lifetime of musical enjoyment.
  • Gloved hands wrapping a piano wire around a tautly held wire.
    Yamaha artisans oversee the winding of pure copper and adjust the balance and tension of each bass string to the exacting standards and sound profile of every Gallery Collection piano.

    Often copied but never equaled, the patented Yamaha aluminum action rail helps assure our piano keyboards are resistant to tiny fluctuations in humidity and temperature over time.
