Yamaha craftsmen truly believe that a piano is a living creation. Thousands of individual parts come together to create a piano, nearly all of which are made from natural materials. Combined with the prideful excellence of fine Japanese craftsmanship, Yamaha pianos are the world’s most popular pianos for good reason.
Yamaha pianos embody the unique design philosophy of a “singing” piano, giving the player the freedom of expression like that of a singer who naturally expresses their feelings from within, giving them a voice and transforming their emotions into sound. The player’s musical thoughts, expressively conveyed by their fingertips, are reproduced with identical delicate nuance, faithfully reflecting the player’s emotions as if the very intent itself is resonating in the air. Drawing on Yamaha’s meticulous study of how the energy of pressing a key produces sound and how that sound is radiated in space, Yamaha have crafted a piano which incorporates this “singing” capability within the body of the instrument.
