  • * A.R.E.: Acoustic Resonance Enhancement
    Yamaha’s proprietary technology for aging wood in a short time to improve its acoustic characteristics. Through precise control of temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure, the acoustic properties of the wood can be manipulated into a more ideal condition, similar to the acoustic characteristics of wood materials in instruments that have been played for years. Existing timber reform technologies are achieved utilizing chemical agent-based reforming method; however, A.R.E. does not use chemical agents in the processing stage at all. Therefore, this technology has a lower environmental impact.
