Unparalleled in their beauty and musical range, grand pianos are the ultimate expression of the piano maker’s art. Embodying over 100 years of accumulated expertise, these instruments epitomize the quality, performance and value for which Yamaha has long been renowned, as we enter the second century of Yamaha grand pianos.
Crisp attack. Sparkling tone. Clean harmonies. This is the birth of a new series of grand pianos that builds on the legacy of Yamaha’s CFX concert grand piano.
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.
The GB1K, Yamaha’s most compact and affordable grand, is a popular choice for locations where space is somewhat limited, with full resonant tone comparable to that of many substantially larger models.
With the power, tonality and expressive range of classic grand pianos, Yamaha baby grands are an admirable choice for smaller rooms and budgets.
The beautiful GC2 combines the duplex scaling and rich tonal character of the coveted C2 grand with cost-saving advantages in materials and production to create an instrument that’s both exceptionally expressive and uncommonly affordable.
Superb balance and rich tone. Every inch of the compact CX Series instruments exudes Yamaha’s passion for the ideal piano.
They possess a clear, crisp sound, pure, and with a superb depth of tone. The C2X is also available in chrome. The unique Chrome colored frame and beautifully lacquered interior of the elegant C2X Chrome create a refined understatement that will perfectly complement today’s diverse tastes in décor.
In setting out to design a piano that could resonate with the pianist, the designers of the CX Series have created instruments that can truly sing.

A powerful, forceful presence, CX Series pianos possess a wealth of reverberation, taking in the nuances of a player’s intentions and reflecting them in the depth and projection of the music itself.
