Yamaha's history began in 1887 when its founder, Torakusu Yamaha, repaired a broken reed organ. Shortly thereafter, he successfully completed the first reed organ to be built in Japan. From this unique blend of expertise and sensibilities, gained from a devotion to sound and music, a company was born. It remains committed to creating excitement and cultural inspiration together with people around the world.
Today, the Yamaha Corporation is a Japanese multinational corporation and conglomerate with a very wide range of products and services, predominantly musical instruments, electronics and power sports equipment. It is one of the constituents of Nikkei 225 and is the world's largest piano manufacturing company.
