Our Flagship CF Series is the culmination of nearly two decades of research and development to create the world's finest concert grand piano. The CF is the rare union of clarity of tone and power that pianists crave. Each piano is crafted entirely by hand for a precise response that brings depth, nuance and an endless range of colors to the player's tonal palette. It is simply a superb instrument.
The CF4 will fit in a recital hall or teaching studio, but has a surprisingly big sound. This piano is characterized by a wide spectrum of tonal colors and being able to create the most expressive phrases.
The finest of the finest wood
|Yamaha craftsmen hand-select the top one percent of wood from around the world at our Kitami Mill in Hokkaido, Japan. The inherent resonance of these woods, from European Spruce in the soundboard and ribs to mahogany and maple in the rims, helps give CF pianos their huge, well-rounded sound and extraordinary range of colors.
Handcrafted by master builders
|The CF soundboards, ribs, back posts and rims are crafted and assembled by hand in our Concert Piano Workshop in Kakegawa, Japan to assure that nothing gets in the way of the clear, rich vibrations of the wood.
A case for resonance
|The innovative shape and thickness of the back beam and posts help give CF pianos the backbone and power to fill the world’s most famous concert halls with warm, nuanced sound.
Hand-modeled, sand casted frame
|Every CF frame is built by hand to our exacting specifications at our Iwata Forge in Japan.
Like no hammers on earth
|Yamaha craftsmen spent nearly two decades experimenting with the shapes, sizes and materials of the hammers so they perform in perfect harmony with every part of the CF piano.
Hand-wound bass strings
|Our artisans painstakingly wind pure copper by hand to adjust the balance and tension of each bass string to the exacting standards and sound profile of every CF piano. You will hear the attention to detail in every note.
Voice regulated and tuned to perfection
|Each CF piano is meticulously voiced, regulated and tuned by master technicians in our Concert Piano Workshop to bring out the nuanced colors, harmonics and resonance from this superb instrument.
Beautiful inside and out
|The finish of the CF is applied by hand, one layer at a time, and buffed to our stringent specifications using traditional methods. A semi-gloss finish is applied on the top board to reduce distracting reflections from stage lights.
