Yamaha Gallery Collection
The art of music.
The Gallery Collection takes its design cues from classic 19th century European pianos. These traditional uprights are beautiful inside and out with a Yamaha advanced soundboard, precision components and a bright, balanced, warm tone. You simply can’t take your eyes, or your ears, off them.
The soundboards and ribs in Yamaha’s Gallery Collection pianos are crafted from solid spruce that has been hand selected at their Kitami Mill in Hokkaido, Japan, giving these pianos a richer, more resonant voice and evenly balanced timbre across the entire keyboard.
Years of cutting-edge research, including a proprietary wood-drying process, results in back posts that maintain their shape, strength and resonance for years to come.
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. Every Gallery Collection piano features a full-perimeter frame built to exacting specifications at the Iwata Forge in Japan.
Yamaha has spent over a century refining the piano maker’s art. You can see and feel the attention to detail in the finish on every Gallery Collection piano.
Gallery Collection hammers are crafted of the finest materials and painstakingly designed for each model to provide optimum tone, response and a lifetime of musical enjoyment.
Yamaha artisans oversee the winding of pure copper and adjust the balance and tension of each bass string to the exacting standards and sound profile of every Gallery Collection piano.
Often copied but never equaled, the patented Yamaha aluminum action rail helps assure their piano keyboards are resistant to tiny fluctuations in humidity and temperature over time.
Seasoned for Destination
Yamaha specifically seasons this piano for the market. The tuning stability, finish and overall musical integrity are enhanced over the long life expected of a fine piano.
Each key of a Yamaha piano is individually tested and measured for the corrections needed to obtain uniform “down weight” pressure. Yamaha actions play correctly and uniformly. This balancing helps ensure a lifetime of superior touch and control across the keyboard.
