P Series soundboards and ribs are crafted from solid spruce that has been hand selected at our Kitami Mill in Hokkaido, Japan, giving these pianos a richer, more resonant voice and evenly balanced timbre across the entire keyboard.
Years of cutting-edge research, including our proprietary wood-drying process, results in improved back posts that maintain their shape, strength and resonance for years to come.
Advanced V-Pro Frame
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 for our pianos. Every P Series frame is built to our exacting specifications at our Iwata Forge in Japan.
The P22 boasts a specially designed music rack that spans the entire width of the piano, giving students and teachers the ability to view multiple pages of music at once.
Yamaha artisans oversee the winding of pure copper and adjust the balance and tension of each bass string to the exacting durability standards and sound profile of every P series piano.
P 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.
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.
