Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (ARE)
Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (ARE) is an original wood reforming technology developed by Yamaha. Through precise control of temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressure, the molecular properties of the wood are gently modified to be more acoustically perfect - recreating the characteristics of the woods in instruments that have been played for years.
