The pianos of the CX series have more depth and significantly increases the resonance and nuances of the overall sound. The back frame has been increased 20% allowing for more strength to convey the reverberations of the strings. These are serious pianos. A new sound board that amplifies the expressiveness of the artist. The new strings offer long sustains and a wide range of harmonics. The experience gained in our manufacturing of the harp translates into a solid instrument. The hammers are developed from the flagship instrument of the concert CF. Intonation and regulation bring pianos to life.
The new CX Series is an improvement on the very successful C Series, which was launched in 1967. Yamaha has fully drawn on the technology developed for creating the CFX (introduced in 2010), and these models incorporate Yamaha’s expertise in sound craftsmanship. The C3X and higher models in the series are equipped with soundboards based on the soundboard technology of the CFX, and to project a richer resonance, the design of the back posts has also been changed. To pursue further expressiveness, they have also improved the strings and hammers.
The sleek, yet sophisticated external design of the CX Series also was influenced by the appearance of the CFX. The CX Series inherits the legacy of “pianos that truly sing” that Yamaha pursued when developing the CFX. Just as the sounds made by a great singer reverberate throughout his or her body, so do the rich resonances that are projected when the vibration of the strings is transmitted to the soundboard. And added to this is an unparalleled ability for changing musical nuances, which gives the CX Series pianos outstanding expressivity.
