 Piano review:- Yamaha

One of the world's most well-known brands, Yamaha Pianos date back over 100 years to 1900 when they crafted the first Yamaha piano. This gives their pianos a rich heritage along with years of dedicated development and innovation for which they are renowned. There are several model series to the Yamaha acoustic range and each one provides the characteristic fine bright tone that gives great clarity and definition.

This hallmark Yamaha sound is present on many popular music recordings and Yamaha have received many endorsements from musicians around the world including popular musicians Elton John and Jamie Cullum, and classical pianists HJ Lim and Maria Joao Perez. You can see the many endorsements and affiliations on the Yamaha website.

Brand History

The Yamaha Corporation began with the manufacture of pianos well before they made motor bikes and all the other products. The longevity of the Yamaha brand brings with it a constant innovation and refinement with their instruments improving every year. Between this drive for development and the traditional handing down of knowledge from one generation to the next, the Yamaha brand ensures that the character and excellence of tone and reliability is delivered from each piano.

Playing a Yamaha Piano

Yamaha have a strong commitment to sustainability and environmental protection and have maintained an ISO 14001 certification at each manufacturing plant. Their long history of production is testament to this awareness and responsibility of management and resources.

Key features

Tone and Materials

From selecting and working with woods to their careful design, every step of the Yamaha manufacturing process has evolved over their long history. This produces an evenness that is evident in their tonal quality and balanced, responsive touch. This balanced response across the keyboard enables the pianist to achieve an equality of expression for any given piece of music.

Silent and Disklavier

With a history of innovation Yamaha were one of the first companies in the world to incorporate digital technology into the traditional acoustic piano instrument. With their Silent, TransAcoustic, and Disklavier products they provide almost unlimited flexibility in their application for practice, recording, and song writing.
