The Yamaha C1 is one of the world's most celebrated performance baby grand pianos, designed to be enjoyed and appreciated by the most discerning pianists. This C1 was manufactured in Japan in 1996; it has been privately owned and well maintained. We found this instrument to be very enjoyable to play, with a responsive action and crisp, clear tone with a surprising amount of body and complexity for its size.
Contemporary Asian pianos feature high-polished ebony finishes almost exclusively - it's extremely rare that we come across one in this attractive satin ebony finish. It's a great choice for more classic interiors and rooms where a high-polished piano would be inappropriate. It's an enjoyable musical instrument in a package that is very aesthetically appealing!
