Enhanced Keyboard Design
For better play and feel, the SU7 sports the longest keys in the Yamaha line of upright pianos. This longer key design inspires playability with the enhanced touch and feel of Ivorite®—a proprietary material developed by Yamaha to replicate the touch, feel and look of natural ivory keys. The superior touch provided by these keyboard materials and the design enable the pianist to create sound rivaling that from a grand piano.
As the flagship of the upright piano line, the SU7 incorporates the highest quality materials in all aspects, including the action parts. The polished design and superbly engineered precision of the individual parts ensure a smooth, responsive touch and accurate control over pianissimo. With superior agraffes and hammers up to specification with those used in the coveted Yamaha CFX concert grand, the SU7 boasts premium, concert-worthy quality.
A number of refined details complement the SU7’s traditional upright piano design, including a fine artificial leather affixed to the bottom of the music rack and a high-quality, gloss-finished wood panel on the inner surface of each sideboard. These small, yet significant details in the design give the SU7 a simple beauty and premium quality that is pleasing to the eye.
The SU7 features a six back post construction with a high-quality European spruce soundboard – the same that is used in Yamaha concert grand pianos. The superior materials and precise manufacturing techniques of the craftsmen used on the soundboard and back posts of the SU7 offer outstanding quality as well as durability, and enables the pianist to achieve a beautiful room-filling sound.
