Introducing the Yamaha C3X grand piano

Yamaha's C3X is certainly what you would call an 'industry standard' grand piano. For a 6-foot performance or practice piano you can do no better, especially when you compare performance versus price. The C3 grand piano is a cornerstone for Yamaha, and whilst the company produce a range of larger and hand built grand pianos, the Yamaha C3 is incredibly important - a 6' grand piano will find itself in living rooms, practice rooms, class rooms as well as performance halls, churches and universities.

The sound quality is rich and expressive, the touch is very even and controlled too making the piano a very satisfying instrument to play. It is one of the most well known models in the entire Yamaha range and as such is a model that we always try to keep in stock, prepared and ready to try on our showroom floor alongside various other C series pianos, both new and second hand.

Yamaha CX Series

The CX Series extends Yamaha’s foundation of knowledge, techniques, and experience further than ever before, providing a clear sound with a clean attack, sparkling tone, and transparent harmonies, all encased in an elegant, flowing form. From beginners to maestros, from living rooms to music schools, the CX Series features a variety of sizes that reflect its identity, offering a model for any performer and performance environment.

Heritage & Innovation

Refined in tone, yet bold in design, CX Series pianos are the product of dedication to innovation that allows Yamaha to remain true to its musical heritage. Representing progress that is commensurate with Yamaha's 125th anniversary year - progress that will transform any room in which you play into a concert hall.

Soundboard

Resonating with the emotions of the performer As with the CF Series, the CX Series utilizes unique crown manufacturing techniques resulting in dramatically improved projection and the unprecedented response that performers demand.

Revolutionary new music wire

The CX Series utilizes music wire that produces a rich sound with a full complexity of overtones in its middle and upper registers offering beautiful sustain and harmony. Coupled with the support from a solid foundation, this gives CX Series pianos a rich, harmonic sound.

Hammers based on those of the CFX Series

Yamaha, unlike most other piano manufacturers, produces most of its own high-quality components and the hammers used in the CX Series utilize the same felt as the CFX, giving these pianos bright tonal colours and finely nuanced sound.

Back posts

The part of the piano that accepts this force and transforms it into deep reverberation is called the back frame, which could be likened to the skeleton in a human body. CX Series pianos feature a thickened back frame for improved support, providing a rich, resonant tone.

Lid Prop Safety Stop

The CX Series is equipped with a lid prop stopper to prevent your fingers from being caught when the piano lid closes unexpectedly.

Soft-Close Fallboard

The fallboard is fitted with a soft-landing mechanism that means you no longer have to worry about the fallboard shutting on your fingers unexpectedly.
