Review: By William Dang, piano teacher
Yamaha pianos are in my opinion one of the best branded
pianos that you can buy on the market for any household or improving piano
student. When you are purchasing one
that is a full upright, all the tones are very rich and resonate with a
beautiful sound. Even the easy
pieces like twinkle twinkle sound much more projecting on a Yamaha piano than on
any other piano.
The tone and the action of the piano is what you are paying
for. Having a good action and tone
means that you develop much more stronger hands and wrists and if you are lucky
enough to be practicing on one from day one, there will be a noticeable
difference in strength and tonal awareness. When it comes to playing advanced pieces, it’s a student’s ability to
control the projection that determines the overall expression and detail of the
Yamaha pianos are also excellent in retaining their value. A $5,000 - $10,000 investment on the
Yamaha piano will still hold 70% of it’s value 5 – 10 years down the road.
If you ever have to sell, it a good
maintenance record will mean it’s parts and tone are in good order and will be
high in demand by any astute buyer.
Given that there are so many pianos on the lower end of the
market with new mass manufacturing and demand for pianos, Yamaha has not given
in to producing lower quality products to compete at the lower end of the market
place, they have retained the values of their company of producing excellent
quality pianos that are always value for money when purchased.
One of their full upright pianos like
the U1, U3 or T121 can last a life time without any need to upgrade when you
become more advanced.
