Yamaha SX Series Grand Pianos

New SX Series S3X and S6X designed for professional use in conservatories, salons, clubs and studios were unveiled which inherit highest level of technology found in Yamaha’s top line CFX concert grand pianos.

They are refined models of S Series pianos much favored for over 30 years featuring A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) treatment in wood materials of their rims first employed in piano manufacturing at Yamaha, newly designed soundboard, ribs and hammers. Photo: S3X (right) and S6X.
The piano wires on bass range are hand-wound individually by seasoned craftsmen for more stable pitch, fat and beautiful deep sound.
The result is superb sound with added expression, warmth and depth, and colorful tonal palette.

Yamaha will distribute S3X on Oct. 10 and S6X on Jan. 10.
