When Yamaha purchased the Everett company in 1973, with it came the Cable-Nelson name. This name was in production and made in the USA until 1981. Then, starting in 2006 until 2014, the name was again used on pianos produced in China. These pianos were made to the Yamaha standards, but at an entry level price. This Cable-Nelson is one of those pianos, with a simple style and quality workmanship it is a great piano for a great price. Owned by one family, it has been well cared for and regularly maintained.

Yamaha Piano History

The Yamaha Corporation built it's first upright pianos in 1900, with grand pianos soon to follow. This Japanese company has continually sought to improve its instruments by sending its engineers to study with European piano manufacturing greats, as well as bringing experts to Japan to advise in their factory. The Yamaha Music school was started in 1954, and soon thereafter the company began to diversify with production of motorcycles, water craft, as well as other instruments.

In 1973 Yamaha bought the Everett Piano Company located in South Haven, MI, and produced pianos for the US market in factories that were located in Michigan and Georgia. These factories closed in 1986 (Michigan) and 2005 (Georgia). Today all of the Yamaha pianos are made in Asia, including Indonesia, China and Japan.

Yamaha has maintained its success to become one of the largest piano manufacturing companies in the world, and acquired the German Piano Bosendorfer in 2008, maintaining it's manufacturing plant in Austria. Today it is one of the most recognized names in the musical world.
