Yamaha has updated its line of C Series acoustic grand pianos with the introduction of the C3XA and C6XA, enhancing the design of the soundboard, the ribs, and the braces.
The two instruments have the following features:
Soundboard and ribs
In order to give shape to the rich reverberation of the XA, Yamaha focused on the soundboard’ s crown. The piano’ s strong ribs have been redesigned and glued to the soundboard, resulting in a perfectly shaped crown with excellent stability.
In order to integrate the braces perfectly with the soundboard, the ribs, and the instrument as a whole, their design has been totally revamped – for example, the back beam, which is located behind the key bed, is now considerably larger. Thanks to these enhancements, the piano delivers a sound that is solid and sustained, powerful and splendidly resonant.
To accentuate the acoustic properties of the instrument as a whole, the XA features a new type of music wire, capable of producing a wonderfully bright, highly present sound.
The music holder has been redesigned for the pianist who appreciates the joy of playing just as much as the piano’ s exquisite tone, with a shape that embodies the rich sound and exquisite tone of the XA. Meanwhile, the lamp stand on the right-hand side sports the XA insignia with pride. These, together with a host of other enhancements, conjure up an air of luxury while portraying a visual interpretation of the piano’ s sound.
Pricing of acoustic pianos is notoriously difficult so we’ll leave that to your ingenuity. Availability to be confirmed.
