What we think of the Yamaha S4BB
The Yamaha S4BB is without a doubt a fine piano. Built to compare and out perform both in terms of price and performance quality, the Steinway model A, the S4BB is a wonderful and sought after concert instrument.
With this fine instrument Yamaha go to extraordinary lengths to ensure that material quality is consistently excellent.
The S4 soundboard is crafted from only the finest spruce available. Grain tightness and angle are measured to ensure the most resonant soundboard possible. This is coupled with a vacuum processed frame, so produced to ensure that there are no imperfections. This is then hand finished to give its characteristic shine.
Actions are manufactured specifically for this line of instruments. They are hand assembled and tested and then several actions are tried in each individual piano and only when the Yamaha technicians have found the perfect match is a serial number stamped on the action to match it to the specified instrument.
S series pianos are consequently wonderfully clear and precise in the treble, they are rich and dark in the bass and the responsiveness of the action creates an instrument which is very satisfying to play.
Ultimately if you are looking for a piano of this nature it is certainly beneficial to select from more than one example. To that end we have an arrangement with Yamaha UK whereby we can organise for several models to be prepared and made available in their selection facility. This enables any potential customer to select from as many as 3 examples.
