The Finest Of The Finest Wood
Yamaha craftsmen hand-select the top one percent of wood from around the world at our Kitami Mill in Hokkaido, Japan. The inherent resonance of these woods, from European Spruce in the soundboard and ribs to mahogany and maple in the rims, helps give CF pianos their huge, well-rounded sound and extraordinary range of colors.
Handcrafted By Master Builders
A patented wood maturation process we call A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) allows our craftsmen to precisely control the moisture content in the hand-selected wooden rims of every SX Series piano. The result is a warm, intimate tone with the sustained resonance comparable to a vintage instrument.
A Case For Resonance
The innovative shape and thickness of the back beam and posts help give CF pianos the backbone and power to fill the world’s most famous concert halls with warm, nuanced sound.
Hand-Modeled, Sand Casted Frame
Every CF frame is built by hand to our exacting specifications at our Iwata Forge in Japan.
Like No Hammers On Earth
Yamaha craftsmen spent nearly two decades experimenting with the shapes, sizes and materials of the hammers so they perform in perfect harmony with every part of the CF piano.
Hand-Wound Bass Strings
Our artisans painstakingly wind pure copper by hand to adjust the balance and tension of each bass string to the exacting standards and sound profile of every CF piano. You will hear the attention to detail in every note.
Voiced, Regulated & Tuned To Perfection
Each CF piano is meticulously voiced, regulated and tuned by master technicians in our Concert Piano Workshop to bring out the nuanced colors, harmonics and resonance from this superb instrument.
Beautiful Inside & Out
The finish of the CF is applied by hand, one layer at a time, and buffed to our stringent specifications using traditional methods. A semi-gloss finish is applied on the top board to reduce distracting reflections from stage lights.

Piano Casing

The shape, thickness, and even manufacturing process of the back beam and posts were changed, and the one-piece inner/outer rim is also made using a newly developed process. The result is a deep rich sound with outstanding tonal projection that can fill the concert hall.

Ribs & Soundboard

Only the most carefully selected European spruce is used for the soundboard. A new method for attaching the ribs to the soundboard helps free it from stress, adding rich overtones to the sound for a wide range of expressive tonal colors.

Metal Frame

The frames are individually hand molded and sand cast to enhance the strength and stability of the pianos. This contributes to the outstanding tonal character and sustain of the series. The CF6 and CF4 feature an open pin block design which improves both the attack and sustain of the notes.


The hammers have a big effect on the tonal clarity and character, and also help determine how the sound projects and sustains. Yamaha uses the best possible materials and treatments for optimum performance despite possible changes in temperature and humidity.

Piano Wire

All aspects of the piano wire have been researched―from the wave patterns of various harmonics to the way it reacts when struck by the hammers. Both materials and manufacturing methods are very important, and Yamaha’s bass strings are hand wound by skilled craftspeople.


The pianos of the CF Series share a beautiful silhouette which mirrors the elegance and purity of their sound. Unnecessary ornamentation has been eliminated in favor of a sleek modern design throughout. The pianos look as good as they sound.


The wood of the CF Series is smoothed numerous times, gradually changing the grade of the sandpaper. And the finish is applied one layer at a time with meticulous buffing in between. The result is a rich black appearance of unusual beauty.
