Introducing the Yamaha C3XTA2 grand piano

Yamaha's C3X is certainly what you would call an 'industry standard' grand piano. For a 6-foot performance or practice piano you can do no better, especially when you compare performance versus price.

Now in its second generation, TransAcoustic uses the piano soundboard as a natural speaker, enabling digital sounds to be played without the need for headphones or additional speakers. You can turn down the volume, play along with backing tracks or layer digital sounds on top of the expressive sound of the C3X making it a superb blend of acoustic and digital piano technologies.

This latest generation also has Bluetooth connectivity for audio streaming and app connectivity, making it a wonderfully versatile grand piano for home or stage.

Yamaha CX Series

The CX Series extends Yamaha’s foundation of knowledge, techniques, and experience further than ever before, providing a clear sound with a clean attack, sparkling tone, and transparent harmonies, all encased in an elegant, flowing form. From beginners to maestros, from living rooms to music schools, the CX Series features a variety of sizes that reflect its identity, offering a model for any performer and performance environment.

Heritage & Innovation

Refined in tone, yet bold in design, CX Series pianos are the product of dedication to innovation that allows Yamaha to remain true to its musical heritage. Representing progress that is commensurate with Yamaha's 125th anniversary year - progress that will transform any room in which you play into a concert hall.

Soundboard

Resonating with the emotions of the performer As with the CF Series, the CX Series utilizes unique crown manufacturing techniques resulting in dramatically improved projection and the unprecedented response that performers demand.

Revolutionary new music wire

The CX Series utilizes music wire that produces a rich sound with a full complexity of overtones in its middle and upper registers offering beautiful sustain and harmony. Coupled with the support from a solid foundation, this gives CX Series pianos a rich, harmonic sound.

Hammers based on those of the CFX Series

Yamaha, unlike most other piano manufacturers, produces most of its own high-quality components and the hammers used in the CX Series utilize the same felt as the CFX, giving these pianos bright tonal colours and finely nuanced sound.

Back posts

The part of the piano that accepts this force and transforms it into deep reverberation is called the back frame, which could be likened to the skeleton in a human body. CX Series pianos feature a thickened back frame for improved support, providing a rich, resonant tone.

Lid Prop Safety Stop

The CX Series is equipped with a lid prop stopper to prevent your fingers from being caught when the piano lid closes unexpectedly.

Soft-Close Fallboard

The fallboard is fitted with a soft-landing mechanism that means you no longer have to worry about the fallboard shutting on your fingers unexpectedly.
