Power and precision all wrapped in elegance
Featuring a pure and powerful tone that emanates from this superbly built cabinet, the Yamaha YUS1 Upright Piano in polished ebony is a piano that you can adore for a lifetime. Such is the build quality, that as time passes, the tuning stability, finish and overall musical integrity will enhance over a natural course. This particular model comes with Yamaha's acclaimed silent piano technology, making this a truly superb hybrid.
Less than 10% of the wood that passes through Yamaha's lumber yard and wood processing plant make it into one of the YU series piano's as the requirement for quality is so high. Because of this, you receive only the best solid spruce soundboard to deliver the best amplification of sound with the best tone and sustain.
The Yamaha YUS1 Upright Piano also utilises full-length ribs to reinforce the crown in its soundboard. This ensures that the tone quality will remain for many years to come and improves tuning stability over time.
Every single key of the Yamaha YUS1 is painstakingly tested to ensure that you get a fully consistent down weight across the full 88 note keyboard. This "uniformity" ensures a lifetime of superior response and dynamics for your practice and performances.
The keys are also crafted from spruce which is chosen for its very light properties that excel when you need to play with fast repetition.
More on Silent Technology
There, of course, will be times when practice may disturb neighbours or people in the same room. Yamaha has the perfect solution for this. Once you plug headphones into the sound engine located on the left-hand side of the piano, underneath the keyboard, and click the middle pedal, the piano will stop operating acoustically and an internal sound engine will take over. What this means for the player is a completely authentic acoustic playing experience that works alongside the CFIIIS sound source to deliver an equally superb, digital recreation of the acoustic piano.
Delicious, superbly built and with a character of sound that will impress even the most discerning of pianists, the Yamaha YUS1 Upright Piano makes an excellent addition to your home or venue for a lifetime.
