I found a Yamaha C3 (made around the year 2003) and its black keys have a very Round front. It certainly makes it more comfortable to play (with the less sharp edge). I've never seen anything like this on other pianos. Have you seen this type of black keys on other C3 or other brands?
Any thought are welcome[img]http:///Users/nahai/Desktop/yamaha black keys[/img][align:right][/align]

The link to your image is broken, looks like you pasted it directly from somewhere without uploading?

Anyway, the C3 rounded keys also come up in the following thread:

I also found the black key shape on Yamahas from this time to be unique at first. Can’t say that I notice it much, an hour into a practice session.
