In setting out to design a piano that could resonate with the pianist, the designers of the CX Series have created instruments that can truly sing. Now with a Yamaha SH2 Silencing system you can enjoy all of the dynamics and nuance of your acoustic grand in headphones as well!

Yamaha CX Series Grand Piano in Home Environment

The legacy of the CFX continues

Some of the most timeless hits have been recorded on a Yamaha C Series piano. Now this legendary piano has been refined with many of the innovations from the flagship CF. The back posts, soundboard, ribs, strings and hammers have been redesigned for a more delicate attack, rich harmonics, infinite colors and a beautiful resonance capable of long sustained pianissimo tones and nuanced, expressive fortissimo. In the process of refining a legend, the CX has redefined what a grand piano could be.



The Player's Piano
CX pianos have been redesigned with many of the innovations of our flagship CFX to give artists a more versatile tonal palette while still maintaining the bright, percussive sound that has helped make C series pianos the most recorded in history.

A Soundboard Above
The soundboard of the CX takes its cues from our flagship CFX. The finest spruce from our Kitami Mill in Hokkaido, Japan is delicately shaped by our craftsmen to create the iconic CX series sound.

A Powerful Foundation
Like our flagship CFX, the back posts of the CX are crafted from the finest spruce and made thicker and more substantial to support the most powerful fortissimo.

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 CX frame is built to our exacting specifications at our Iwata Forge in Japan.

A More Refined Hammer
We took everything we learned from our flagship CFX and reinvented the hammers to create the iconic sound of the CX with even more range of tonal colors and nuance.

Specially Crafted Bass Strings
Yamaha artisans wind each bass string to work in harmony with the hammers, soundboard and every part of this exceptional instrument.

Superior Voicing and Regulation
CX pianos are expertly voiced and regulated by master technicians in Kakegawa, Japan to express every nuance.
