Yamaha S6X

We took everything we learned from our Flagship CF concert grand and crafted an instrument that’s perfectly suited for the conservatory, recital hall or intimate stage. SX pianos are almost entirely handcrafted and feature our patented Acoustic Resonance Enhancement process to precisely control the aging of wood in the rims for a warm, elegant tone. A completely redesigned hammer helps produce a wide palette of colors with an intimate sound and depth rarely found in a concert grand.

A newborn piano with the aura of a vintage instrument
Yamaha’s Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E.) is the latest leap forward in the evolution of piano craftsmanship. What is A.R.E.? It’s an original treatment process that we use to season the rims used in SX Series pianos. As well as reducing the moisture content in the wooden rims, A.R.E. induces chemical changes that occur when young wood is aged under optimal conditions. This enables the rims to produce the warm and sweet tones of an instrument matured to perfection. The benefits of A.R.E. have already been proven in Yamaha’s acclaimed flagship Artida YVN500S violin, L Series and A Series guitars. Now, for the first time, A.R.E. comes to an acoustic piano. The seasoned rims of the SX Series give it a sound unlike that of any other piano. A deeply intuitive sound with sustained resonance and the precision to express even the most delicate pianissimo notes.

Rims—the key to acoustic clarity and warmth
For the inner and outer rims of the SX Series, Yamaha craftsmen carefully selected wood based on its acoustic characteristics. During construction, they reduced the number of glue layers, using more than 30% thicker wooden materials than those of forerunner S Series pianos, to bring out the inherent resonance of that wood. This approach has shaped the acoustic character of the SX Series, adding richness, clarity, and muscle to the bass and mid-range, while maintaining a warm and inviting overall tone.

New hammer felt expands the range of tonal color
In order to realize the ideal sound, one of the most important factors is that the hammers must complement the piano body. The SX Series employs exclusive hammer felt made with a newly developed formula. Yamaha tested countless prototypes in the quest to find the perfect match for this piano. The superb elasticity of this hammer felt allows the player to achieve clear and beautiful tonal colors, along with well-balanced density across the full range from bass to treble. As a player, you’ll relish the artistic freedom and expressive nuance offered by the SX Series.

The Yamaha S6X grand piano is available with the Disklavier ENSPIRE PRO system ( DS6X ENPRO ).

With the Disklavier ENSPIRE PRO system driving the exquisite action and acoustics of the SX Series, the result is effectively a holographic reproduction of the original artists’ intentions, as though they were invisibly sitting at the piano bench.

Additional features of the SX ENSPIRE PRO series include:
• Included WPS Wi-Fi adapter adds wireless connectivity directly to the piano, either peer-to-peer or on a network •
• Silent mode decouples hammers from strings for headphone practice using the built-in Yamaha CFX concert grand sample •
• USB audio recording function •

“The ENSPIRE PRO took the Disklavier concept to a new level, and the SX Series did the same for Yamaha acoustic pianos,” said Gary Klugman, director of marketing, Pianos, Yamaha Corporation of America. “With the two together, discerning piano owners can now truly have the best of both worlds—our finest acoustic pianos integrated with the best reproducing system made.”


SX Series

SX Series soundboards share the same DNA as our world-renowned flagship CFX.
The soundboards and ribs are crafted from hand selected European Spruce to deliver warm overtones and a wide range of colors.

Appearance and finish that embody the SX Series sound
The clean, modern design and graceful curves of the SX Series are the physical counterpart to its elegant and expressive sound. Taking the best from the forerunner S Series and augmenting it with practical innovations, the SX Series takes its place on the stage as a thoroughly contemporary piano.
