Description

At 5’3’’ the Yamaha C1X grand is a relatively small piano, but its exceptional build quality provides characterful tone and makes for a satisfying performance and practice instrument. It is part of the X series, a recently redesigned range of the ever popular Conservatoire grand pianos. After almost 20 years of research and development, Yamaha have made some important changes for these revamped models.

New piano wire improves the middle registers dramatically, giving extra levels of sustain and sympathetic resonance, and the hammers are now made with the same European sourced felt as the concert pianos which results in a finely nuanced attack and superb tonal clarity. Yamaha have also redesigned the soundboard crown with a new thickened back frame for huge resonance and much improved structural support.

The C1X has a full sostenuto pedal mechanism, 3 position prop stick for the lid and a wide music desk, suitable for large scores. As a baby grand, it does not have the full range of tonal colour that one might expect from a larger instrument, but for its size, the designers have achieved something quite remarkable. It has justifiably become the domestic piano of choice for serious musicians all over the world.

Like most Yamaha instruments, the C1X is also available as a silent piano. With a flick of a switch, this system stops the hammers from hitting the strings and engages sensors under the keyboard to trigger wonderful concert piano samples which can be heard through headphones. This is particularly useful in practice situations where pianists might disturb family or neighbours, but the silent piano module is also USB compatible making it invaluable in the studio and opening up all sorts of interesting features when paired with software and apps.

TransAcoustic technology is a more recent development and is also available as an add-on to the Yamaha C1X. This has all the function of a silent system but also turns the solid wood soundboard into a speaker, thereby enabling players to adjust the volume, and amplify a vast range of triggered samples and backing tracks without any other equipment.
