Yamaha Piano Advice
The more you know (despite the initial confusion) the more able and confident you will be in choosing the right piano for you. We would therefore encourage you to take the time to read every word on every page of this information site.
The demand for Yamaha pianos has increased considerably in recent years and Yamaha's range of pianos has developed accordingly. The styles of cabinets are more suited to the European preferences, and more importantly - the tone, which is considerably more rounded and resonant. However, the number of models available is more than overwhelming with 12 uprights and 12 grands, plus the Silent series and Disklavier series hybrids. This almost too-comprehensive range is certainly confusing and it is worth knowing how Yamaha work, so that you can understand the range better.
Some models are merely variations of each other, and despite the difference in price, there may not be any difference in performance or quality - other than aesthetics. Also, there are 'resonating thresholds' where a size of piano suddenly produces a far superior tone and range and the models below such a threshold may all sound quite alike - despite their genuine differences in design and quality.
