The C3 is a 6'1" grand piano and is commonly found at recording studios and conservatories all over the world. Its 6'1" length, duplex scale, tone collector system, Ivorite keytops, superb construction and finish make the C3 a fine piano to play and own.
A Yamaha piano just isn't a Yamaha piano if it doesn't have clear, crisp tones and a descent bass range—well this C3 piano delivers. At 6'1", we got a taste of the "real bass" feel found in larger grands and it had excellent dynamics too—allowing for a smooth transition from ppp to fff comfortably.
The C3's keytops are fabricated with Ivorite, a synthetic "Ivory" substitute. We liked the Ivorite touch for a couple of reasons: First Ivorite, like Ivory, is porous and gives the pianist better grip over the plastic keytops found on smaller pianos. Second, again like Ivory, Ivorite has a dull finish and won't reflect light nearly as much as white plastic keytops do—a bad thing especially during a recital or performance.
We liked the feel of the keyboard. The keyboard was very solid and well regulated. If you're used to playing on a well maintained piano, the C3 shouldn't be a problem for anyone to get used to.
