Affordable Acoustic Pianos - Keyboard Magazine

Yamaha acoustic pianos are known for their high build quality and sonic consistency: Given baseline maintenance and tuning, any specimen of a given model anywhere in the world is going to sound and play like any other. You know what you’re getting—and in the case of time-tested products like the C series grands and U series uprights, what you’re getting is world class.

Playing Yamaha's CFX Concert Grand and NU1 Hybrid Pianos - Keyboard Magazine

We recently paid a visit to Yamaha, and while we can't tell you (yet) about everything they showed us, we did get some hands-on quality time with their newest flagship concert grand piano, the CFX. Now, it wasn't as if the CFIIIS was any slouch, but the CFX represents a new direction for Yamaha in terms of design principles and manufacturing techniques. It inarguably belongs on any very short list of the very finest concert grands in the world, and will surely provoke passionate debate among piano aficionados as to whether it's in fact the best.

Action

Assembling the action mechanisms of a piano requires highly skilled technicians and specialized techniques. A mere one-millimeter deviation in strike-point position can adversely affect the sound. Unlike other manufacturers, Yamaha produces each and every one of the 5,500 components in-house using its proprietary precision machinery, resulting in actions that are extremely precise and faithful to design specifications. Also, to withstand many years of use, action mechanisms must be made highly resistant to continuous impact as well as to the effects of changes in temperature and humidity. Yamaha takes advantage of its proprietary technology for drying and gluing maple wood, the main material of an action mechanism, to produce piano actions that are marked by precision and durability. By thoroughly studying extensive feedback from pianists and music experts around the world, Yamaha makes constant efforts to produce action mechanisms that achieve the response pianists seek.

Soundboard

Yamaha has developed proprietary methods for soundboard production, ranging from the selection and drying of the raw spruce to the gluing of the panels. Knowing that soundboards play a vital role in determining sound quality, Yamaha handles every aspect of their production in-house–from the procurement of the finest grade spruce through the final finishing. With Yamaha proprietary drying technology, moisture content can be evenly reduced from every part of the wood. This method for uniform drying not only enables Yamaha soundboards to produce high-quality sound, but also makes them highly resistant to warping and twisting for superb durability. As a result, Yamaha pianos can retain their characteristic tone for many years to come. The cumulative knowledge of Yamaha enables us to create soundboards that are not only superb in resonance, but also aesthetically appealing with each panel neatly aligned by color and grain.

Frame

Yamaha is one of the very few piano manufacturers in the world that produces all of its own frames in-house using one of two methods: vacuum process casting and traditional sand casting. The frames for many of the Yamaha upright pianos and some of its grand pianos are produced using an advanced casting technology called V-Pro—Vacuum Shield Mold Process—an advanced casting method that creates a mold from dry sand held in place by plastic film and a vacuum. Yamaha was the first in the world to incorporate this process into piano frame production. Yamaha uses traditional sand casting to make the frames for its high-end uprights and grand pianos, such as the CFX concert grand. Frames produced via traditional sand casting contribute to a deep, rich piano sound. The Yamaha frames are also designed to be durable, resistant to the effects of changes in temperature and humidity, and are capable of supporting tremendous string tension in concert with the back posts.

Spruce Soundboard

At the Yamaha lumber mill and wood processing facility, the finest spruce is quarter sawn; and less than 10% of the total is selected and reserved for Yamaha piano soundboards. Solid spruce, rather than laminated spruce or poplar, is the choice in all fine pianos for the best amplification of sound, best tone and sustain.

Full Length Ribs

Yamaha reinforces the crown in its soundboards by using ribs that continue to the edge of the soundboard, and are glued into the notched liner (or inner rim on the grand piano). Reinforcing the crown ensures that the tone quality will remain for years and years and improves tuning stability.

V-Pro Plate

Yamaha uses V-Pro (Vacuum Shield Mold Process) in casting the iron frame (plate). V-Pro plates are stronger and visually more appealing. Critical dimensions are produced more accurately than before.

Metal Action Rails

Yamaha engineering developed a unique Extruded Aluminum Alloy Action Rail (bearing a Yamaha patent) that is one of the best innovations for improving a piano action in the last 100 years. The usual fluctuations in wood rails that effect touch, caused by periodic weather changes, are eliminated allowing stable, long-lasting action regulation.

Balanced Action

Each key of a Yamaha piano is individually tested and measured for the corrections needed to obtain uniform "down weight" pressure. Yamaha actions play correctly and uniformly. This balancing helps ensure a lifetime of superior touch and control across the keyboard.

Uniform Key Travel

Yamaha designs all grand and vertical pianos to have the same key travel. Regardless of size, type or model of Yamaha piano, the keyboards will always feel the same.

Spruce Keys

Yamaha uses Spruce for the keys on all models of pianos. Spruce is very light and possesses a very high ratio of strength to weight. It is ideal for key construction, even though its cost is greater than either sugar pine or bass wood. Yamaha keyboards respond quickly providing fast repetition for the most intricate piece of music. Yamaha keyboards withstand heavy use over years of fortissimo passages.

Features

Real acoustic piano

Most importantly, a TransAcoustic™ piano is a wonderfully crafted acoustic piano produced in-house through Yamaha's vertically integrated manufacturing process. This guarantees high-level playability, long lasting durability and a beautiful sound. When the hammers strike the strings, vibrations travel through the solid-wood soundboard creating a vibrant tone that will stimulate the senses.


Play piano at any volume

There are times when the full sound of an acoustic piano may not be appreciated by your family or neighbors. For these situations, simply activate the TransAcoustic™ function and the hammers will no longer strike the strings. Non-contact sensors under each individual key detect your keystroke depth, velocity and timing and send this information to the tone generator. Just adjust the volume and hear the digital sound of your piano performance coming from the entire instrument.


Enjoy different sounds

The TransAcoustic™ piano offers 19 pre-installed sounds, allowing you to select a voice that perfectly matches your music. Select from the award-winning Yamaha CFX Concert Grand, or from a number of electric pianos, organs, strings and much more! Additionally, you can connect any external sound source to be played back through the entire instrument.


No external speakers needed

With Yamaha's TransAcoustic™ technology there's no need to connect external loudspeakers. At its most basic level, TransAcoustic technology turns the piano into a 'loudspeaker' and the soundboard is working as the membrane for that loudspeaker. There's no need to purchase extra speakers and cables. The piano is ready for you to play as soon as it's delivered into your home.


3D Sound Projection

Sounds played through speakers can often sound one directional as they are coming from a single source point. In contrast, the Yamaha TransAcoustic™ system uses all acoustic elements of the piano to generate a larger and more natural omni-present sound. This technology makes the entire instrument a resonator, producing a rich and complex tone.


Natural string resonance

The TransAcoustic™ technology transmits the digital sound directly to the piano soundboard and makes the piano itself behave like a loudspeaker. The sound you hear has the natural tonal characteristics of the soundboard. The vibration of the soundboard is also transmitted to the piano strings and creates the same natural string resonance as when you play an acoustic piano. With the soundboard producing a rich tone and the strings a natural resonance effect, instrument voices sound better than ever. Digital was never more natural.


Combine acoustic and digital sound

Perhaps the most scintillating sounds are generated when you combine the acoustic and digital properties of the instrument - gentle orchestral strings under a natural piano, for example. You can also combine the CFX concert grand piano sample with the piano's own acoustic sound to give it more power and depth. Can you imagine the sound and presence of a 9' Concert Grand emanating from the footprint of a 48" upright?


Play-along to music

Another way to enjoy TransAcoustic™ technology is to play the piano accompanied by pre-recorded tracks played through the soundboard. Because the instrument is a real, fully strung and resonant piano, the natural sympathetic vibrations of the soundboard, case and more significantly strings add a completely new dimension to performance. The sampled sounds come to life with a brilliant realism no other instrument can match. You can use the USB port to play back .WAV files or use the AUX-IN jack to connect an external music player.


Silent Piano SH included

The TransAcoustic™ Piano features Yamaha's renowned SILENT Piano™ SH technology, so practice sessions can also be conducted with headphones. The binaural sampled CFX concert grand piano sample uses a dummy head recording technique to capture the sound from the player's natural listening position. This offers the perfect environment to play without being disturbed or disturbing others. For all SILENT Piano benefits check our SILENT Piano™ web page.


The sound of Yamaha's acclaimed CFX concert grand

Played by the winner of the 2010 International Piano Competition, the CFX is Yamaha's flagship concert grand piano. TransAcoustic™ pianos feature a superbly detailed binaural sample of the CFX that lets you to enjoy the rich, resonant sound of the CFX in a more compact instrument.
