What We Think
The Yamaha GB1, or GB1k as it is also known, is a compact baby grand piano ideal for smaller spaces. It is often used in homes and schools as an alternative to larger uprights. As is typical with Yamaha pianos, the sound is bright and crisp and the action smooth. The copper wrapped strings are shorter to allow for the smaller body; Yamaha has been thorough in ensuring the GB1 Baby Grand Piano, though compact, makes no compromise on sound. The GB1 is a popular instrument for pianists who want the beauty of a grand piano in their home with the confidence that they are investing in a premium branded instrument. In addition, the GB1K piano can be used silently so that the sound can only be heard through headphones, making it ideal for peaceful play in your own home.
