Yamaha C7 Grand Piano
Today's C Series grands also incorporate all of the quality construction
features found in prior C Series models.
Rims are formed from layers of select woods, laminated into shape in special presses, then seasoned to allow the wood to stabilize. Sturdy back posts are joined in a radial configuration and fitted to the rim using exceptionally strong and stable dovetail joints, enhancing both the pianos durability and the integrity of the acoustic chamber.
Iron plates, the internal frame of the piano, are cast in a vacuum molding process that virtually eliminates flaws and imperfections, then attached with an adjustable mounting system that allows precise control over string downbearing — critical for the best tonal performance. A metal tone collector connects the back posts to the plate, reflecting sound energy back through the case for a fuller, more sustained resonance.
Soundboards are crafted from select clear spruce and cured in a proprietary process that ensures a durable, natural crown. This is further reinforced with full-length spruce ribs, securely mortised and glued into the inner rim. Bridges are formed from fine-grained hardwoods chosen for optimal sound transmission, and precisely notched and pinned to carry the strings.
Produced from special steel and pure copper wire, strings are installed with the aid of special equipment for consistent, even tensioning. Duplex scaling, which tunes non-'speaking' lengths of the strings, enriches primary tones with complementary harmonics.
