  • Closeup of board in process of being built out with some of ribs/crown visible.
    P Series soundboards and ribs 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, results in back posts that maintain their shape, strength and resonance for years to come.
  • 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 for our pianos. Every P Series frame is built to our exacting specifications at our Iwata Forge in Japan.
