Yamaha Expands LA Atelier Facility

Christian Wissmuller • Upfront • November 2, 2013

Yamaha Corporation of America has added a new strings facility within the 5,000 square foot Los Angeles Atelier. Located at Yamaha’s headquarters, the Atelier serves the artist and education community with a venue for designing, creating, testing, servicing and restoring band and orchestral instruments.

With the increased growth of Yamaha Strings in electric and acoustic markets, along with the desire to better service customers with special set-up configurations, the company designed and built a dedicated workspace for these instruments.

“The Strings Atelier will help us improve our technical productivity and interaction with our artists and educators,” said Ken Dattmore, marketing manager for strings, Band & Orchestral Division, Yamaha Corporation of America. “The facility helps us support the continued growth of electric and acoustic product lines.”

At the new facility, artists and visitors will have the opportunity to work with Yamaha’s top technicians. The new resource also features movable acoustic panels, industry-leading sound processing technology and advanced video conferencing capabilities, allowing users to consult with Yamaha’s experienced instrument designers and repair experts around the globe.
