Pianist Magazine Hails New Yamaha SX Pianos
Don’t think about how this piano was produced. Simply enjoy it. These were the instructions of a development engineer at Yamaha, and I did as I was told. The engineer was just one member of an extensive team who have worked on the company’s new series of SX grand pianos. The series was launched in April at Musikmesse, the annual musicindustry trade fair in Frankfurt.
Good advice, you would think. What really matters about an instrument, surely, is not how it’s made but how it sounds. But a little history is in order. Yamaha launched their previous S series of grand pianos back in 1980. The SX series is the product of five years of research and development which has had far-reaching consequences for the piano’s design and manufacture. The series features a host of technical innovations intended to take the piano to a new sonic level.
Renowned journalist John Evans visited the Yamaha booth at the recent Frankfurt Musikmesse on behalf of Pianist Magazine to evaluate Yamaha’s all new SX Series grand pianos.
He was hugely impressed with the characteristics and qualities of the range and you can read his insightful and informative review in the download below.
