Yamaha Concert Grands
« on: March 29, 2017, 05:33:04 AM »
As everybody knows, Yamaha used to put out several models of concert grands during the 90's- most notably the CFIII and the CFIIIS. However, I've never seen a 'CFIIIS' label on the lower right side of the frame on a Yamaha concert grand, just 'CFIII'- although the piano in question was designated a 'CFIIIS'. So how could I distinguish a 'CFIIIS' from a plain 'CFIII' just by looking at it? Also, I heard that before the CFX model came out, there was a CFIV, possibly a CFV, and a CFVI. Is any of this true?

Thanx

Since no-one seems to know the answer to any of my questions in the post above, how about this: What sets the Yamaha CFIIIS apart from the CFIII, other than the Wurzen hammers?

pretty specific/specialized question, you'd likely get better answers by targeting your audience a bit better.
questions like this are likely best posed to the sales person/yahama rep-yamaha dealer rep, they would have training and experience in these kinds of details, and likely it would be the most up to date and current answer you can get. Why not go to the showroom and ask the person selling it?

@visitor Well, actually, I would think that this would be a particularly good place to get some feedback, since there are apparently a few technicians on this site; any feedback, of course, is welcome; besides, I assume you can get info on this forum that you might not be able to get from a dealer; remember- not all dealers know what they're talking about relative to what they happen to be selling.  :-\
