We took everything we learned from more than a century of crafting fine pianos to create an instrument to inspire the next generation of players. The result is an elegant, compact piano with a responsive keyboard and a clear, resonant tone. Whether you’re a beginner, a budding virtuoso or accomplished musician, the b Series is an absolute joy to play.

Long Lasting Design
Years of cutting-edge research, including our proprietary wood-drying process, result in back posts that maintain their shape, strength and resonance for years to come.
Yamaha was the first company to use an advanced Vacuum Shield Mold casting technology called V-Pro to create a stronger, lighter, more durable frame. Every b Series piano features a full-perimeter frame built to our exacting specifications at our Iwata Forge in Japan.
b Series hammers are crafted of the finest materials and painstakingly designed for each model to provide optimum tone, response and a lifetime of musical enjoyment.
Yamaha artisans in our factory in Kakegawa, Japan oversee the winding of pure copper and adjust the balance and tension of each bass string to the exacting standards and sound profile of every b Series piano.
Often copied but never equaled, the patented Yamaha aluminum action rail helps assure our piano keyboards are resistant to tiny fluctuations in humidity and temperature over time.
