Introducing the Yamaha C1X TA3 TransAcoustic grand piano
The Yamaha C1 grand piano is a wonderful combination of compact design and big resonant sound quality. At 5'3'' the instrument is big enough to produce a real depth of sound but small enough to fit domestically. The C series, as of January 2013, had their first major redesign. The C1X now has a redesigned soundboard crown, new string material and a much more refined set of hammers which resulted in a massive overall improvement. It is perfect for beginner, intermediate and professional pianists alike and is available in a selection of attractive finishes, polished ebony, polished mahogany, satin walnut, white and satin ebony.
First and foremost an acoustic piano, a TransAcoustic piano is a versatile tool which combines the best features of a digital piano with the inimitable resonance and feel of an acoustic instrument.
Specially positioned transducers transform the piano's soundboard into a natural loudspeaker, meaning you can practice at a lower volume without wearing headphones. Dominic Barnett – Chamberlain Pianos
