With the CFX, Yamaha now moves center of the stage.
The nine foot CFX is a full sized concert grand piano characterized by a wide palette of tonal colors and the ability to create the most subtle expressive nuances. The CFX can project over the sound of a symphony orchestra, even in very large halls.
The crowning glory of the Yamaha line, today's CFX concert grand incorporates numerous refinements in performance, appearance and safety, elevating this revered instrument to an even higher standard of excellence.
Wood, iron, felt and leather. Perfect harmony.
In the making of pianos the choice of materials is a much-considered subject. For Yamaha, the concept of perfection starts by setting the selection criteria on which all its materials are chosen. For Premium Pianos only the world’s finest materials are used. They are then crafted into each and every component – always with the consideration that it is the blend and harmony of each element that ensures the pedigree of the end result. Wood that has been specially selected based on the grain structure, strength and resonance is seasoned for long periods so that it is perfect to form the ribs, soundboard and bridges. High-grade felt for the hammers, the leather used in the mechanism of the action, which is itself engineered to the highest precision levels, or the cast-iron plate that is produced at Yamaha’s own foundry: it is the interaction and synergy among all these materials which turns an instrument into a Yamaha Premium Piano. This dedication is applied to every individual stage of production and the most rigid quality controls possible ensure that each instrument attains the desired quality level. It is the fusion of all the elements that is critical – every component, each material, the method of assembly and the quality checks that create the final product. Add to this the experience of the master builder, the demands of the artist and the technological expertise available from a long tradition of craftsmanship, and then it is clear to see how Yamaha succeeds in creating what pianists experience as the form of perfect harmony between performer and piano.
