CX Grand Piano FEATURES
The Players Piano
CX pianos have been redesigned with many of the innovations of our flagship CFX to give artists a more versatile tonal palette while still maintaining the bright, percussive sound that has helped make C series pianos the most recorded in history.
A Soundboard above the rest
The soundboard of the CX takes its cues from our flagship CFX. The finest spruce from our Kitami Mill in Hokkaido, Japan is delicately shaped by our craftsmen to create the iconic CX series sound.
Like our flagship CFX, the back posts of the CX are crafted from the finest spruce and made thicker and more substantial to support the most powerful fortissimo.
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 worthy of the grandest grand piano. Every CX frame is built to our exacting specifications at our Iwata Forge in Japan.
A more redefined hammer
We took everything we learned from our flagship CFX and reinvented the hammers to create the iconic sound of the CX with even more range of tonal colors and nuance.
specially crafted bass strings
Yamaha artisans wind each bass string to work in harmony with the hammers, soundboard and every part of this exceptional instrument.
superior voicing and regulation
CX pianos are expertly voiced and regulated by master technicians in Kakegawa, Japan to express every nuance.
CX Series Testimonials
Josh Gratton | Piano Department Manager/Piano Instructor
The CX Series… I have played on The GB1K and GC Models for many hours over the past years. Keep in mind the genre I have studied the most is classical. I have played classical, rock, jazz, I’ve spent hours improvising, I’ve worked scales, I’ve played pop, I’ve listened to so many people play on these models, and I can honestly say I have enjoyed every minute of it. When you are looking at the CX series, you are looking at a grand piano that has top notch material, engineering, design, sound, and touch.
There is a reason the CX series grand pianos are the most recorded pianos in history. They are a dream to play, the response of the action is superb, and the sound is both crisp and full of colors. The C3X has alive and bright (not too bright!) tone that allows you to be expressive with classical music yet still have fun playing rock, pop, and jazz. The larger cabinet CX series continuously develop a bit of a warmer tone overall with deeper bass tones, longer sustained notes, more projection, and more complex colors in the sound.

I would say that it is a smaller piano but without any compromises, it has quality of larger CX pianos. It has beautiful tones and responsive actions and it will help me to attain even and precise executions of my fingers on the keys. It is a great concert preparation tool for my concerts. Suitable for someone who is serious in learning classical piano repertoire, also definitely an excellent choice for teaching instrument.
It features absolutely gorgeous and powerful bass sound, strong yet warm at the same. This piano reminds me of large bells of European churches, since it has rich and noble prolonged sound. Superb balance of lower, mid and upper register which makes it easy to play anything. Instead of I have to adjust to the piano, this piano will help you to bring out most natural ways of your playing.
I have played several concertos on the CX7 in recent years. The most recent was when I played Beethoven’s Emperor concerto here in town, which I felt it was most suitable quality piano to play with the classical style chamber orchestra. Suitable for up to mid-size concert halls, schools or churches
For chamber music, I love to play on the CX6, little sibling to the CX7. It has the ideal balance for the chamber music. I own CX6 at my home.
