The Yamaha C3 is one of the most popular grand pianos in the world. It comes from Yamaha’s state-of-the-art factory in Japan and is among its popular Conservatory Series Grand Pianos. Many artists gravitate towards Yamaha because of the refinement of the action and reliable consistency of performance. Yamaha’s manufacturing is so precise that there is more consistency from piano to piano than in other brands and high-quality models such as this tend to hold up well over time if well maintained.
A Yamaha piano just isn’t a Yamaha piano if it doesn’t have clear, crisp tones and a descent bass range—well this C3 piano delivers. At 6’1″, we got a taste of the “real bass” feel found in larger grands and it had excellent dynamics too—allowing for a smooth transition from ppp to fff comfortably.
The C3’s keytops are fabricated with Ivorite, a synthetic “Ivory” substitute. We liked the Ivorite touch for a couple of reasons: First Ivorite, like Ivory, is porous and gives the pianist better grip over the plastic keytops found on smaller pianos. Second, again like Ivory, Ivorite has a dull finish and won’t reflect light nearly as much as white plastic keytops do—a bad thing, especially during a recital or performance.
The C3 is designed with a duplex scale—the non-speaking portion of the piano strings (located between the bridge pins and hitch pins). The purpose of the duplex scale is to add fullness and color to the sound. The metal tone collector is also worth talking about. It connects to the back posts and the iron plate of the piano allowing sound energy to transmit through the piano’s case for a fuller longer-lasting tone.
