YAMAHA GRAND PIANO (click for sales)
Yamaha GH1 Baby Grand Piano
5' 3" Classic Collection Baby Grand Piano
Seasoned for Destination
Yamaha specifically seasons this piano for the U.S. market. The tuning stability, finish and overall musical integrity are enhanced over the long life expected of a fine piano.
Permanent Crown Solid Soundboard
Yamaha utilizes a process that creates a permanent crown in the soundboard and at the same time minimizes soundboard cracking. The customer can feel confident that the piano last for years and the beautiful sound of a Yamaha piano will last a lifetime.
Solid Spruce Soundboard
At the Yamaha lumber mill and wood processing facility the finest spruce is quarter sawn; and less than 10% of the total is selected and reserved for Yamaha piano soundboards. Solid spruce, rather than laminated spruce or poplar, is the choice in all fine pianos for the best amplification of sound, best tone and sustain.
What people are saying:
For what it's worth---to my ear the 4'11" GA1 sounds better than the GH1! You should make sure you include that piano when you're comparing various shorter grands (and you should also compare some full-size grands, too, so you know what the compromises are)
The GH-1B costs less than the C1 for the simple reason that it's not in the same class as a C1. It's made for a price point as a competitor to the Korean grands. The C1 is part of the Conservatory series on which Yamaha's excellent reputation is based

Full tuned duplex scale
Angled backpost design with tone collector
