Yamaha UX Professional Upright Piano For Sale
Most people are conversant with the renowned Yamaha U upright series. Well, the Yamaha UX is a higher line piano than the common U series and it also highlights finer woods and higher grade felt. Why is it called UX? One may be concerned about the origin of the X designation. Frequently, model numbers of pianos will either be random letters or numbers or in most cases they may point out the size of the piano in centimeters.
It is characterized by a reinforced crown in its soundboards. Reinforcing the crown within the soundboards makes sure that for years and many more years after, the tone quality will remain up to standard. Furthermore, the process improves tuning stability. Glue is used to attach the soundboards to the notched liner; the inner rim on the piano.
Just like the Yamaha U3M upright piano, the Yamaha lumber mill and wood processing facility uses solid spruce instead of the alternative poplar or laminated spruce. This is also similar to all fine pianos. The best spruce is quarter sawn with only less than 10 percent chosen and retained for the Yamaha piano soundboards. Solid spruce guarantees the best tone, sustain and amplification of sound.
For the Yamaha UX professional Upright piano, the Vacuum Shield Mold Process also known as V-pro is utilized for casting the iron frame. Two notable advantages of V-pro plates are, they are visually more attractive and robust. Specific dimensions are crafted more precisely now than ever before.
Metal Action Rails
One of the best creations Yamaha engineered to improve piano action in the last 100 years is the metal action rails.

The metal action rails eliminate the recurring fluctuations in wood rails caused by occasional weather changes – the fluctuations greatly affect touch. Consequently, there will be a stable, long-lasting action regulation.
On all models of pianos, Yamaha uses Spruce for the keys.
