The timeless Yamaha logo, depicting a tuning fork, was created way back in 1967 when the company was known as a big-name manufacturer of high-quality pianos. The logo has remained largely unchanged since then, despite a few modification attempts in the late 1980s.
There are actually three tuning forks which overlap each another to subconsciously spell out the letter “Y”. Contained within a circle, these forks symbolize effective production, strong sales and modern technology. All these attributes are reflected in the finely tuned instruments and machines of Yamaha.
The Yamaha logo features a custom-made, asymmetric typeface.
