The C3 is part of Yamaha’s conservatoire range of pianos made in Japan and borrows many of its features from Steinway.
In particular, it uses duplex scaling on the treble strings, which are tuned an octave higher to add brightness to the tone of each note. A similar technique is used on our Bluthner which has an aliquot system, and our Bosendorfer which uses a Cappo d’astro bar to achieve the same effect.
It also has a 3 pedal arrangement with the middle pedal being a damper selector.
