Built in 1992. Very rare custom hand-painted finish. In 1902, Torakusu Yamaha, founder of the Yamaha Corporation, built the first Yamaha grand piano. Two years later, the Yamaha grand piano won the Honorary Grand Prize at the St. Louis World's Fair. Today, the Yamaha C series grand piano is easily the most recorded and recognizable piano in the world. Yamaha C5 piano is the next size up from the C3. At 6'7", and 770 lbs (66 lbs heavier then the C3) the C5 has much of the same features as the C3. Some of these features include Ivorite keytops, the tone collector system, duplex scaling, Humid-A-Seal pinblock and more. The Disklavier will play piano-only disks OR disks with fully orchestrated background accompaniment. You can even record on this state-of-the-art instrument!
Where the C5 Yamaha piano shines is in the bass region. One can appreciate the C5's sound when it is positioned in the center of a large enough room and played. We loved the fact that when played, the C5 had more of a deeper, powerful bass compared to the C3. Overall, the tone is nice, crisp, and clean as expected by a Yamaha piano.
