Yamaha pianos made in Japan (not Yamahas built in Indonesia, China, or Taiwan) are some of the most sought-after pianos on the market today.
Yamaha does an incredible job building a quality product and an even better job in product placement and marketing. As a result, Yamaha has ascended to a super high desirability status. Some would argue, even over Steinway!
If you are searching for a quality, upright by Kawai, Boston, Essex, or any other quality piano manufacturer you will certainly want to check out what is considered by those in the know to be a musical stand-out and a classic perennial favorite.
