Founded in 1887 by Torakusu Yamaha, the Japanese brand Yamaha is one of the largest manufacturers of musical instruments, especially pianos, in the world.
Torakusu Yamaha, founder of the brand, began this incredible epic by designing a reed organ in 1887. The Nippon Gakki company was created, which later became Yamaha Corporation, allowing it to develop the design of instruments of music starting with upright pianos.
The Yamaha company will continue its rapid development by opening up to the world market in 1966. Yamaha will gradually be broken down into several sectors in order to diversify its production and its expertise:
