GC SERIES OVERVIEW

The GC Series combines the duplex scaling and rich tonal character of the renowned C Series grand—maintaining a treasured overall sonic balance as a piano, and inheriting the exquisite touch response and richly expressive power unique to Yamaha.

THE FRAME

The frame in a piano must be able to withstand a total string tension in excess of twenty tons; not only does the frame work to support the string tension, but it has a profound effect on the instrument’s sound. Yamaha makes its own frames, relying on a method of casting referred to as “vacuum process,” the world’s first such technique developed over many years in creating some of the best piano frames. During this time we have built up a storehouse of knowledge on factors such as the manner in which controlling the temperature and composition of casting, and even the coating used on the frame itself, affects the acoustic characteristics of the piano. This is a major reason that Yamaha is able to ensure reliable quality when crafting our pianos.

VOICING AND REGULATION

The depth of the piano keyboard is such that there is only 10 mm of travel available to the player. Even so, the range of tonal changes produced by that small distance are so broad that they cannot be reproduced with modern digital technology. Yamaha devotes an incalculable amount of time crafting and enabling the sound that players strive for. In meticulously adjusting the action to efficiently transmit even the most delicate nuances in the player’s touch, and fine-tuning the sound by needle-piercing the hammer itself to create a beautiful and varied tone, the master craftsmen and their consummate skills ensure the highest quality of these instruments.

SEASONED FOR DESTINATION

Yamaha specifically seasons every piano for its destination. The tuning stability, finish and overall musical integrity are enhanced over the long life expected of a fine piano.

LID PROP SAFETY CATCH

The GC Series is equipped with a lid prop catch to prevent your fingers from injury if the piano lid closes unexpectedly.

SOFT-CLOSE FALLBOARD

The fallboard is fitted with a soft-landing mechanism, freeing you from the worry of it shutting on your fingers unexpectedly.

SILENT Piano™

SILENT piano™s are genuine acoustic pianos equipped with Yamaha’s advanced silencing technology. When the keys are played in SILENT Mode, the hammers are stopped immediately before striking the strings so that the piano itself generates no sound. Sensors installed below the keys decipher how the keys are played and relay the data to the digital tone generator, which generates sampled sounds that can be heard through a pair of headphones. By allowing players to play a true acoustic piano sound under normal circumstances, or to put on headphones and play in SILENT Mode to avoid disturbing others, SILENT Piano™ makes any time a good time to sit down at the piano.
