A bit on Yamaha CX series grand pianos

Yamaha’s commitment to the continuous re-evaluation of the core processes of sound creation has made the grand pianos of the C series the best-selling grand pianos in the world. The technically demanding regulation process that is essential to a grand piano’s superior tone is given special emphasis in these instruments. Countless hours have been spent perfecting the hammers, strings, and the balance of the damping mechanism, with the final goal of rendering each note faithful to the intentions of the pianist. 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 built on the knowledge, techniques, and experience gained during this long period, with craftsmen pouring everything they knew into the creation of an instrument that took bold new steps in piano design, seeking to attain sonic perfection. 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.
