Description

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.

 

Room-filling sound


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.

 

Rich, resonant woods


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.

 

Back posts; forward-thinking



These pianos share the robust back post design of our conservatory series pianos, giving them the powerful resonance, durability and tuning stability you might expect in a larger grand piano.

 

Hand-wound Yamaha bass strings

Bass strings are crafted and hand wound under the watchful eye of Yamaha artisans exclusively for each piano.

 

Advanced V-Pro frame

Yamaha was the first company to use an advanced Vacuum Shield Mold casting technology called V-Pro to create a stronger, lighter, more durable frame worthy of the grandest grand piano. Every frame is built to  exacting specifications at the Iwata Forge in Japan.

 

A hammer like no other

Yamaha’s unique hammer felt, crafted in Japan, has been designed to bring out the subtle tones of the instrument, and is tested to withstand fluctuations in temperature and humidity and continue playing beautifully for years to come.
