Yamaha YUS Series
The world’s grandest upright.
The YUS Series are superbly crafted instruments with inspiringly rich sound and delicate balance. The simplicity of the cabinet gives superb acoustics to the subtlest note, and specially designed hammers provide rich tone. And the simple, meticulous design rounds out a piano that enhances the performance of professional and home pianists alike.
The YUS Series takes upright piano quality and performance to a new level. YUS Series pianos share many features from the Flagship CF Series pianos. From hand-wound German strings and concert quality hammer felt to meticulous voicing and regulation, a YUS brings out a range of colors more reminiscent of a grand piano than a traditional upright. It’s quite simply the grandest sounding upright available.

The top ten percent of solid spruce from around the world is hand selected from the Kitami Mill in Hokkaido, Japan for the YUS piano soundboards. The crown is reinforced with full-length, solid spruce ribs for a refined, dynamic tone expected in a grand piano.
Yamaha artisans wind each bass string by hand to the exacting standards and sound profile of every YUS piano at the factory in Kakegawa, Japan.
Each YUS piano features a proprietary Yamaha tone escapement system that helps provide the clarity of tone and power that is rarely found in an upright.
Often copied but never equaled, the patented Yamaha aluminum action rail helps assure our piano keyboards are resistant to tiny fluctuations in humidity and temperature over time.
