A world-class performance grand piano.

The Yamaha C3 is one of the world's most widely celebrated grand pianos.  It has been universally acclaimed for decades as a wonderful marriage of sound engineering, stable and consistent manufacturing, and remarkable attention to musical detail.  It is a gold-standard performance grade instrument that is suitable for the most discerning pianist.

With the comparable new model (the Model C3X) now priced over $52,000, this C3 represents a great opportunity to own one of the world's most popular pianos at an incredible price.

An enjoyable instrument!

The action of this piano is even and consistent and its tone is characteristically Yamaha - clear, crisp, and bright but with plenty of body.  Overall it's a very enjoyable piano to play.

Practice silently and record your performance.

This piano features a QRS PNOscan Silent system installed by the previous owner.  Silence your piano to listen through headphones without disturbing others in your home.  Connect an external device like an iPad to record your performance, share it with others, and compose your own music.

Beautifully reconditioned in 2012

This piano was extensively reconditioned in 2012, with the following work performed:

  • New strings and tuning pins
  • Action refurbished, fully voiced, regulated and adjusted for optimal playing condition
  • New bright white key-tops
  • All new under-string felt
  • Soundboard refinished to beautiful condition
  • Harp re-gilded to new gold finish
  • Hardware buffed and polished
  • Original polished ebony cabinet buffed and polished to excellent cosmetic condition.

The perfect size for the best tone.

Acoustically speaking, grand pianos which are 5'7'' to 6'1'' in length are almost ideally sized for an even, balanced tone across the entire instrument. Large enough to accommodate bass strings that give the instrument power, volume, and fullness, but not so large that the bass overpowers the treble register. It's optimally sized to give you the smoothest, most even transitions from the very bottom to the top. You're going to love it!
