This Ebony polish 52" studio upright Yamaha was built in 1971. It has had a single owner, and was lovingly cared for in a home, not a school or teaching studio. There is a lot of life left on the hammers, and since it is 52 inches tall, has a larger speaking length to the strings - hence a nice full sound. It is a brighter instrument, characteristic of the Yamaha sound. A padded double bench is included, with room for music underneath.

Yamaha Piano History

The Yamaha Corporation built it's first upright pianos in 1900, with grand pianos soon to follow. This Japanese company has continually sought to improve its instruments by sending its engineers to study with European piano manufacturing greats, as well as bringing experts to Japan to advise in their factory. The Yamaha Music school was started in 1954, and soon thereafter the company began to diversify with production of motorcycles, water craft, as well as other instruments.

In 1973 Yamaha bought the Everett Piano Company located in South Haven, MI, and produced pianos for the US market factories that were located in Michigan, Georgia. These factories closed in 1986 (Michigan) and 2005 (Georgia). Today all of the Yamaha pianos are made in Asia, including Indonesia, China and Japan.

Yamaha has maintained its success to become one of the largest piano manufacturing companies in the world, and acquired the German Piano Bosendorfer in 2008, maintaining it's manufacturing plant in Austria. Today Yamaha is one of the most recognized names in the musical world.
