The Durability and Uniqueness of a Yamaha Piano
The Yamaha piano is well known for its durability and the uniqueness with which it is created. Well before the company was officially established, Torakusu Yamaha built a reed organ in 1887 in Japan. This was less than 20 years after the official start to what is known as the “westernization” of Japan at the beginning of the Meiji Era in 1868. In 1897, the Yamaha Corporation was established as Nippon Gakki Co., Ltd. Production of upright pianos soon followed in 1900. Yamaha pianos continued to excel at international exhibitions and between 1902 and 1903 won a number of awards. The World Wars brought change to the company, both good and bad. The First World War resulted in grown in Japanese industry overall and this translated to the company itself. The Second World War resulted in only one production plant standing, due to bombing raids. However due to research conducted during the war, the company was able to produce their own metal cast iron plates. The company continued to grow and in 1967 the company produced their first concert grand piano. In 1987, the 100th anniversary of Nippon Gakki, the company formally changed the name to Yamaha Corporation.
Since their first development, Yamaha pianos are common to find almost anywhere one looks. It is widely accepted as one of the best piano manufacturers today. Part of this may have to do with the unique way in which the pianos are made. Every single piece of the piano is made inside the factory. This means from the largest part of the piano to the smallest, every inch of this Yamaha product, composed of 5,500 individual components, is manufactured and assembled in-house. The technicians who make and assemble the pianos are experienced and use special techniques that ultimately create a durable instrument.
In addition to assembling the piano from top to bottom in their factory, Yamaha also uses unique technology for gluing and drying its wood in such a way that it resists twisting and warping. The soundboard is carefully assembled using proven methods for creating sound of the highest quality. The plates are made either from vacuum process casting or traditional sand casting. The company was also among the first to use the Vacuum Shield Mold Process.
The quality of Yamaha pianos does not go unnoticed. Japanese composer and pianist Hiromi, jazz pianist Chick Corea, and even Bryon Janis, a pianist of international renown, choose Yamaha for their performances. These pianos vary greatly in type and price, but we can help find the perfect one for your needs.
