Yamaha has spent over a century refining the piano maker’s art. You can see and feel the attention to detail in the finish on every Gallery Collection piano.
THE FINEST WOODS
The soundboards and ribs in our Gallery Collection pianos are crafted from solid spruce that has been hand selected at our Kitami Mill in Hokkaido, Japan, giving these pianos a richer, more resonant voice and evenly balanced timbre across the entire keyboard.
BACK POSTS, FORWARD THINKING
Years of cutting-edge research, including our proprietary wood-drying process, result in back posts that maintain their shape, strength and resonance for years to come.
SPECIALLY DESIGNED HAMMERS
Gallery Collection hammers are crafted of the finest materials and painstakingly designed for each model to provide optimum tone, response and a lifetime of musical enjoyment.
ADVANCED V-PRO FRAME
Yamaha was the first company to use an advanced Vacuum Shield Mold casting technology called V-Pro to create a stronger, lighter, more durable frame. Every Gallery Collection piano features a full-perimeter frame built to our exacting specifications at our Iwata Forge in Japan.
SPECIALLY CRAFTED BASS STRINGS
Yamaha artisans oversee the winding of pure copper and adjust the balance and tension of each bass string to the exacting standards and sound profile of every Gallery Collection piano.
WORLD’S FIRST ALUMINUM ACTION RAIL
Often copied but never equaled, the patented Yamaha aluminum action rail helps assure our piano keyboards are resistant to tiny fluctuations in humidity and temperature over time.
