Detailed Description

Exactly the same length as the C1X, the Yamaha GC1 is available at a more affordable price due to savings in materials and production. Nevertheless, it is based on the former C1M grand. A little longer than the entry-level GB1, the GC1 also benefits from Japanese-built craftsmanship, more refined parts and duplex scaling (lacking in the GB1). This gives it a far richer and more colourful tone across its range, but particularly in the higher treble where the duplex scaling allows sections of the string which are normally ‘non-speaking’ to partially resonate in sympathy with the main note. Being a smaller baby grand, the GC1 is highly suitable for smaller spaces, and a viable alternative to an upright piano.
