Keys

We’ve spent years searching for the perfect piano for our studio.  We chose our Yamaha C7 for the tone that comes from its legendary soundboard. Yamaha selects only the finest 10% of quarter-sawn solid spruce for their C7’s. Its playability and incomparable tone are why the C7 is the most recorded piano in the world. You’ve heard it on many of your favorite records, now it’s time to hear it on yours.
