Yamaha C3XPE Grand Piano 6ft 8 Polished Ebony

Yamaha C3XPE Grand Piano 6ft 8 Polished Ebony


The Yamaha C3X 6’1″ Conservatoire grand piano is the latest incarnation of what has to be the most popular 6′ grand in the World. Really, the famous Yamaha C3 “Conservatory Grand” needs little introduction… except on this occasion, the newly developed C3X does.

It’s quite different to the familiar C3. It does what the C3 did before, only better. Much better.

The soundboard crown is supported in a new way which enhances the resonance; the strings and hammer felt are upgraded and both the pianos back-beam and bridge have been widened. It isn’t marketing. The new Yamaha C3X really has had an overhaul!

There is a warmer and more fluid quality that wasn’t there before. Some C3s were quite aggressive. Punchy, powerful, projecting pianos; excellent workhorses; very functional – only they lacked personality and refinement.

The bass is less brassy and there is more emphasis on the fundamental tone. In the tenor, there is more range and depth, but the bright colours come through very well and the treble has good sustain and projection without being harsh.

The tone retains its clarity at stronger levels, and with the action just so responsive, the C3X gives great control. A very versatile instrument capable of mimicking larger pianos and yet being a suitable size for a wide range of environments, including where a piano mustn’t shout.
