Yamaha 5′-3″ Baby Grand Piano.
Yamaha has had a well-deserved reputation for superior quality control and virtually perfect preparation at the factory. They arrive at the dealer in flawless condition. Technicians are enthusiastic about servicing them due to their exceptional engineering design. The Yamaha model GH1 grand piano is a less expensive version of the very popular G1. The G-series line of grand pianos were built in the main factory in Hamamatsu, Japan. They were arguably Yamaha’s most popular grand piano line and had huge financial success. The Gh1 has the same scale-design as the G1 and the same action with the exception of a part of the keyframe. It also has a lighter plate, fewer braces and a less robust pinblock construction. The middle pedal is a bass sustain pedal instead of a true Sostenuto. It has a standard scale design and no Duplex scaling. There isn’t a lock and the cabinetry and bench are plainer.
Many highly respected musicians are Yamaha Artists and endorse these pianos, especially in the pop and jazz genres. Elton John comes to mind, with his bright fire engine red concert grand. One can’t view YouTube musical performances without seeing the ubiquitous Yamaha piano logo in most of them. Incidentally, the logo design is three tuning forks intertwined. They have a crisp, clear tone which is rather pleasing for runs up and down the keyboard. The company also builds excellent digital keyboards, guitars, sound and recording equipment, horns and reed instruments, and much more. Many schools of music have become All-Yamaha Schools as a means to attract students desiring quality musical instruments during their studies and practice. You will find their products nearly everywhere else too: homes, churches, on stage, in the recording studio, and the like. 88 Keys Piano Warehouse & Showroom price – $9,950.
As always, this Yamaha model GH1 grand piano is sourced locally, per our company policy. It was purchased right here in Albuquerque in 1998 at the Yamaha dealer, Music World and has spent its entire life here. So, it is happily acclimated to our unique desert Southwest climate and low relative humidity. It is in excellent condition – structurally and aesthetically, and should offer you decades of musical enjoyment. It was played very little so the moving parts in the action have minimal wear. It was always serviced by competent and knowledgeable technicians. We had only to do our usual dealer prep in our restoration shop and nothing more. That means pitch correction, voicing, tightening action screws, minor action regulation, cleaning inside, etc. It has the classic Yamaha touch; fast, accurate and responsive with an excellent repetition. The tone is classic Yamaha, meaning harmonic-rich and sonorous with an excellent dynamic range. That means the pianist can perform the subtlest pianissimos and most forceful fortissimos. The original bench with storage is included. The finish is a traditional classic satin ebony. Complimentary local first-floor professional delivery is included.
