Yamaha Model UX30BL  Upright Piano (Year 1988-1990)

Dimension: 1530mm L X 620mm W  X 1310m H

*Please call us on 9550 9825 to check the stock availability. 

The Yamaha UX30BL Upright piano features a beautiful polished ebony finish. The UX series was a limited top of the line model introduced in Japan as an upgrade to the U-series, equipped with even higher grade wood and felt materials, nickel plated tuning pegs, higher quality action parts and sound board. Has a recessed fall board And large music stand with sound holes behind it, allowing sound to project from the front of the instrument. Designed for professionals with features of grand pianos. 

The biggest different is the use of an X brace (radial type) In back, allowing for longer bass strings and an overall richer, fuller sound with longer sustain; and it also holds tuning better.

A buying agent in Japan explains “The UX models are designation sold domestically in the Japanese market. So these models are not mass produced for the export market and it is rare to find it”.

The original, new retail price of X series instruments was about 30% higher than the U series. Due to the high manufacturing cost, Yamaha stopped making the piano with x brace. As you know, scarcity can increase price, therefore used UX series are often more expensive than the U series model.”

 

Details

Spruce Soundboard
At the Yamaha lumber mill and wood processing facility, the finest spruce is quarter sawn; and less than 10% of the total is selected and reserved for Yamaha piano soundboards. Solid spruce, rather than laminated spruce or poplar, is the choice in all fine pianos for the best amplification of sound, best tone and sustain.


Full Length Ribs

Yamaha reinforces the crown in its soundboards by using ribs that continue to the edge of the soundboard, and are glued into the notched liner (or inner rim on the grand piano). Reinforcing the crown ensures that the tone quality will remain for years and years and improves tuning stability.


V-Pro Plate

Yamaha uses V-Pro (Vacuum Shield Mold Process) in casting the iron frame (plate). V-Pro plates are stronger and visually more appealing. Critical dimensions are produced more accurately than before.


Metal Action Rails

Yamaha engineering developed a unique Extruded Aluminum Alloy Action Rail (bearing a Yamaha patent) that is one of the best innovations for improving a piano action in the last 100 years. The usual fluctuations in wood rails that effect touch, caused by periodic weather changes, are eliminated allowing stable, long-lasting action regulation.


Balanced Action

Each key of a Yamaha piano is individually tested and measured for the corrections needed to obtain uniform “down weight” pressure. Yamaha actions play correctly and uniformly. This balancing helps ensure a lifetime of superior touch and control across the keyboard.


Uniform Key Travel

Yamaha designs all grand and vertical pianos to have the same key travel. Regardless of size, type or model of Yamaha piano, the Keyboards will always feel the same.


Spruce Keys

Yamaha uses Spruce for the keys on all models of pianos. Spruce is very light and possesses a very high ratio of strength to weight. It is ideal for key construction, even though its cost is greater than either sugar pine or bass wood. Yamaha keyboards respond quickly providing fast repetition for the most intricate piece of music. Yamaha keyboards withstand heavy use over years of fortissimo passages.

X Braced Frame 

Featuring the famous ‘X’-braced frame for more power and stability and a longer life-span, this piano will be a beautiful addition to any home. It has a highly responsive touch and tone that is consistent across the entire keyboard range.
