Why choose a Yamaha Upright Piano?

As the world's largest piano manufacturer, Yamaha has cornered the market in high quality and affordable pianos, making music more accessible to learners around the world. In 1887, Yamaha's founder Torakusu Yamaha repaired a broken reed piano and so the company was born. The company has been producing pianos and reed organs since 1900, later moving into digital instruments. The breadth of instruments available today makes the Yamaha brand a versatile option for professional and beginner musicians alike. We offer a selection of new and quality used Yamaha upright pianos for musicians of all abilities. You can also explore our range of Yamaha digital pianos and our selection of used Yamaha pianos in our Belbroughton showroom.

Yamaha Piano Materials And Construction

Yamaha upright pianos are made from a wide range of materials, depending on the series. They are commonly made from natural and hardwearing materials like dense, resonant wood like European spruce, mahogany, Japanese Sakhalin spruce and rock maple. The Yamaha organisation is known for the world-renowned Kitami Mill in Hokkaido. By milling their own wood, they can ensure that only the wood with the ideal characteristics makes it into a Yamaha upright piano.

Only the top materials are suitable for constructing the soundboard and outer casing to ensure a resonant tone and sturdy, long-lasting instrument. The rich tone is achieved through careful selection of the raw materials. The keys are made from acrylic resin, which is hard-wearing and will ensure your piano components last a lifetime.

New Or Used Yamaha Pianos

When choosing between a new piano and a used piano, you need to consider the following factors. Price is often the main motivation, with used pianos offering you the opportunity to own a high quality instrument for a fraction of the cost of a new instrument. If you are looking for the newer models, you may be more interested in to the latest Yamaha upright piano collections available to order online. Classical music fans will love the flexibility that comes with an acoustic piano, as it will allow you to play expressive pieces.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do Upright Pianos Retain Their Value?

An upright piano can retain its value provided it is well maintained and cared for. The main issue with upright pianos is moving them to a new location, as this will mean they need time to settle before they are re-tuned. To counter this, you could choose a digital piano rather than an acoustic piano. Many modern digital pianos offer the same sound and resonance of an acoustic instrument but without the need to keep it tuned.

Is Yamaha A Good Brand Of Piano?

Yamaha is known around the world as a quality brand for upright pianos, grand pianos, digital pianos and acoustic pianos. An upright piano from Yamaha is an excellent investment for your home or business. The Yamaha U series offers a refined look that is ideal for a smaller space. You could also explore the more modern Yamaha YUS series which includes a selection of silent upright pianos.
