Yamaha GC1 Grand Piano Polished White
The Yamaha GC1 (also known as a Yamaha GC1M) is a beautiful baby grand piano with a depth of 161cm (5ft 3inches). Made in the Yamaha factory in Japan you are assured a quality instrument. The polished white cabinet looks amazing and the key action with fast response time make this piano a pleasure to play. The overall tone has a lovely depth and dynamic change on touch. From soft ballad music to fast forte classical music, this piano gives you the feel, tone and experience you are looking for. I think this piano is excellent value for money.

More About The Yamaha GC1 Baby Grand Piano Polished Ebony

The GC Series combines the duplex scaling and rich tonal character of the renowned C Series grand; maintaining a treasured overall sonic balance as a piano, and inheriting the exquisite touch response and richly expressive power unique to Yamaha.
The frame in a piano must be able to withstand a total string tension in excess of twenty tons; not only does the frame work to support the string tension, but it has a profound effect on the instrument’s sound. Yamaha makes its own frames, relying on a method of casting referred to as 'vacuum process', the world’s first such technique developed over many years in creating some of the best piano frames. During this time we have built up a storehouse of knowledge on factors such as the manner in which controlling the temperature and composition of casting, and even the coating used on the frame itself, affects the acoustic characteristics of the piano. This is a major reason that Yamaha is able to ensure reliable quality when crafting our pianos.
Voicing & Regulation
The depth of the piano keyboard is such that there is only 10 mm of travel available to the player. Even so, the range of tonal changes produced by that small distance are so broad that they cannot be reproduced with modern digital technology. Yamaha devotes an incalculable amount of time crafting and enabling the sound that players strive for. In meticulously adjusting the action to efficiently transmit even the most delicate nuances in the player’s touch, and fine-tuning the sound by needle-piercing the hammer itself to create a beautiful and varied tone, the master craftsmen and their consummate skills ensure the highest quality of these instruments.
Seasoned For Destination
Yamaha specifically seasons every piano for its destination. The tuning stability, finish and overall musical integrity are enhanced over the long life expected of a fine piano.
Lid Prop Safety Catch
The GC Series is equipped with a lid prop catch to prevent your fingers from injury if the piano lid closes unexpectedly.
The fallboard is fitted with a soft-landing mechanism, freeing you from the worry of it shutting on your fingers unexpectedly.
