Concert Grand YF3 is based on robot-assisted deep multisampling of a meticulously well-kept 9' Yamaha CFIII concert grand piano. Extremely sensitive and responding to the lightest touch, Concert Grand YF3 offers the volume of sound and depth of tone color needed to fill any musical project or concert hall.

When Yamaha craftsmen unveiled the CFIII in 1983, it was an instant hit. Praised by both critics and performers for its sound and playability, it's been used by a number of notable pianists, including Chick Corea, Hiromi Uehara and Glenn Gould.

It was also the first Yamaha piano to use the company's new "Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action II" (SHS II), which is designed to provide a more realistic feel and response. Though discontinued, the CFIII is still considered to be one of the finest concert grand pianos in the world and one that can be yours today in the Concert Grand YF3.

Using DPA microphones for the close miking and Schoeps mics for medium-distanced coincident pair, this spectacular piano was recorded at the legendary Fonoprint Studios in Bologna, Italy, within the walls of a 15th century convent.

In addition to our many IK sample sessions over the years, Fonoprint has hosted the very best Italian and international artists from Ennio Morricone to Luciano Pavarotti to Andrea Bocelli.
