Musical instrument hire with the option to own
The pinnacle of the Yamaha custom series range
Please select instrument options
The Yamaha YUS5 is the flagship model of the YUS custom upright range, each of which is an enhanced version of one of the well-regarded U-series pianos. Various upgraded components provide them all with a mature tone and exceptional resonance, while the addition of a sostenuto pedal makes the YUS more versatile than many small grand pianos.
This particular model is based on the Yamaha U5 and, like the other YUS pianos, features upgraded string material and premium grade hammer felt. The hammers themselves have deluxe walnut mouldings, and there is also a lever operated celeste rail included for muffling the sound completely.
Perhaps the most striking aspect externally is the levered music desk which is large enough for the most detailed scores imaginable. Behind the desk are what Yamaha describe as ‘acoustic ports’ – essentially windows - in the top door which let the full sound of the YUS5 resonate towards the player. The sound can really fill a room and gives this instrument full performance potential.
Like most Yamaha pianos, the YUS5 is available with a Silent or TransAcoustic module built in. These systems enable the instrument to be heard through headphones, using an extremely high quality binaural sample of the Yamaha CF concert grand piano, while the acoustic sound is completely muted. TransAcoustic pianos also have the ability to amplify samples and recordings using their own soundboards, effectively allowing players to control the volume and tone of the instrument and play along with backing tracks among many other ingenious features.
