Why Yamaha Pianos?

Absolutely! Where do we even start with Yamaha in regard to their amazing pianos?!

Yamaha started out making organs back in the late 1800s. Mr. Yamaha himself saw an organ in a classroom and thought, "Wow, we should be making these right here in Japan!" Being a brilliant and tenacious inventor, he went to work making the best organ he could. Yamaha's curiosity lead him down the path of making upright pianos and then eventually grand pianos in the 1890s. This was the start of what eventually would become the largest musical instrument manufacturer in the world.

Yamaha has been making pianos for over 130 years and with that experience they have developed some of the best pianos in the world today. From 1990 to 2010 Yamaha underwent a research and development process where they completely re-engineered their pianos. Yamaha started with their handmade premium CFX concert grand piano and took everything they learned to improve all of their acoustic piano series.

Yamaha has become the majority favorite at the world stage. For example, the highest level musicians in the world are beginning to prefer Yamaha to any other brand. In 2016 at the prestigious International Chopin Competition, 70 out of 151 competitors chose Yamaha’s CFX 9’ Concert Grand Piano to perform on, making it the most popular piano on stage out of four available brands. Out of the top 10 finalists, 7 performers chose Yamaha as their piano of choice to perform with. During this competition, there were 3 special prize awards, 2 of which were awarded to Yamaha performers. The winner of the competition, Seong-Jin Cho, ultimately performed on a brand that was not Yamaha, but later selected a Yamaha CFX for his prize recital in Paris.

Now that you are aware of their highest level acoustic pianos, keep in mind that quality and attention to detail flows all the way through their digital pianos from entry-level to Clavinova to their Hybrid piano models. With any of Yamaha's pianos, you will enjoy decades of music making.

Most people are not aware of Yamaha's commitment to education and quality, but now you know. Yamaha has truly developed pianos that are deserving of the title "Best Pianos in the World."

An acoustic piano is a traditional piano made of wood, strings, hammers, and cast iron frame that you have to tune on a regular basis. The proper terms for this kind of piano is called an acoustic piano.

Other terms for this type of piano are called: upright pianos, spinets, and consoles.

Weighted actions are ideal (yes they are good!) for anyone looking to purchase a digital piano to learn piano. Weighted actions provide resistance in the key action to help feel closer to that of an acoustic piano. For example, the low notes of the piano have a little bit more resistance than that of the high notes on the piano.

Piano teachers recommend, if not require, at least weighted action pianos at home before you start lessons. It really is important when learning piano to at least have a weighted action digital piano, although it is tempting to spend less money on a non-weighted action digital piano.

More on this, as the price goes up on digital pianos one of the main things that usually changes is a better weighted-action. There is so much nuance in the action of acoustic pianos that digital pianos do the best they can to represent and recreate the feeling of an acoustic piano.

Yamaha, being that they have some of the best acoustic pianos in the world, does their best to make their digital pianos feel as close to their acoustic pianos as they can. They do an amazing job at this and people are always impressed with the feel of Yamaha digital pianos.
