Hello, I would like to know how Yamaha soundboards are made (sprice, solid, laminated...). Also, how many back posts do the pianos have. How does this differ between their pianos? And what any other important do they have? Thank you for your help!

The middle pedal probably lifts the bass dampers. That makes the bass notes sustain only, while the treble does not. Sort of a poor man's sostenuto pedal. The bass strings can vibrate in sympathy when a treble note is played, hence the overtone yo

That is a good question. On the old upright pianos I've owned, I don't think the middle pedal did anything of consequence. Or, maybe I just couldn't tell if it did or not. Rick
