Yamaha C6 Grand Piano
For our recitals we rent a Yamaha C6 high quality 7 feet Grand Piano from Piano Distributors. The rental is sponsored 50% by Westchase Music School and 50% by Mr. Hanspeter.
Yamaha’s commitment to the continuous reevaluation of the core processes of sound creation has made the grand pianos of the C series the best-selling grand pianos in the world.
The sound – Apart from their royal look, grand pianos are bigger than upright pianos. This allows their strings to be longer. Longer strings can vibrate more accurately than the shorter and produce wider overtones; therefore they have a richer and fuller sound. In other words, size matters here…
The touch – Grand pianos come with a far more responsive key action due to the double escapement technique. This allows the pianist to express and play nuances which can not be done in regular upright pianos.
Quality – Piano manufacturers use the best materials with careful manufacturing systems when building grand pianos since these pianos are professionally used in concerts, competitions, recording etc.
