Yamaha C3 : moosers's user review
The Yamaha C3 is a grand acoustic piano that has all the modern features and design that a great acoustic piano should. It has 88 keys, three pedals, and is quite large in size overall. I have used this piano in my school's recording studio for doing overdubs and I love the sound that this piano has. It is easy to play as it feels good the fingers and a I feel confident while I'm playing it. I'll usually get a stereo spread of the piano using a pair of large diaphragm condenser microphones and this gets me an extremely wide piano sound. It is actually pretty easy to get a good sound from the Yamaha C3 as it has a full sound that is suitable for a variety of different genres. I've used the piano for recording rock, pop, and folk music for the most part as that is what I play, but I definitely think that it would make for a great piano for recording classical and jazz music as well. I assume that if you are thinking about buying a grand acoustic piano that you understand you will be paying a decent amount of money as any good piano like this will. This being said, when compared to some of the other acoustic pianos out there in this quality range, this is actually a great deal. Since Yamaha is such a large company they can afford to mass produce these pianos and sell them at an extremely low cost like this, even if it seems like a lot of money to those unfamiliar with the world of acoustic grands. Yamaha definitely knows what they are doing as they got their start making pianos, and the C3 is a great example of the quality of work that they are capable of. This piano is worth a look for anyone who wants an acoustic grand piano!
