Yamaha YUS5 Professional Upright w/ Sostenuto


Type: Upright

Size: 52"

Year: 2023

Finish: Polished Ebony w/ Mahogany Trim

Serial No.: 6566097

Series: YUS Professional

Yamaha’s U Series is almost ubiquitous when it comes to upright institutional pianos – it is the most popular vertical piano line in the world, found in countless schools, studios, churches, and private homes.  The U series set the bar for quality and reliability demanded by professionals.


The YUS line steps things up a notch, elevating the standard U3 series model to even loftier performance levels with European hand-wound strings, improved hammer felts, higher grade spruce in the soundboards, and extensive voicing and regulation in the factory.


The 52” YUS5 upright has the equivalent soundboard area of a mid-size grand.  The depth of tone, especially in the bass, is impressive and very satisfying, rivaling many conservatory grands.  And like most grand pianos, the YUS5 has a true sostenuto middle pedal – rarely found on vertical pianos, making this ideal for a dedicated pianist — from motivated intermediate to advanced, who desires the experience of playing on a top-of-the-line professional, full upright piano with no compromises.


This YUS5 was ordered during the height of the pandemic-induced supply chain shortages, finally coming into our store after more than a year of waiting.  Our customer had this piano home for only three months – he decided he would prefer the same model in its hybrid TransAcoustic (TA3) version so that he could also play completely silently, and layer other digital sounds with it.


For all intents and purpose, it’s a new piano.
