Yamaha GB1K & GC Series
These babies are prodigies.
These aren’t just baby grands. They’re our babies. Yamaha designers, engineers and craftsmen were challenged to bring out the expressive tone, subtle colors and dynamics of a conservatory grand from a more compact instrument. The GB1K and GC Series put the unmistakable sound of a Yamaha grand piano in more places, and in reach of more people, than ever before.
The beautiful GC Series combines the duplex scaling and rich tonal character of the coveted C Series grand with cost-saving advantages in materials and production to create an instrument that’s both exceptionally expressive and uncommonly affordable.
The GB1K and GC Series pianos may be small, but they have a powerful resonance and tone that brings out the subtle nuances of every note.
Great pianos start with the finest wood. Soundboards and ribs are crafted by Yamaha artisans using hand-selected spruce from the Kitami Wood Mill in Hokkaido, Japan.
Bass strings are crafted and hand wound under the watchful eye of Yamaha artisans exclusively for each piano.
