This Yamaha M500 S piano has only had one owner. It is in excellent condition and has had regular maintenance. If you have any questions, please let me know. I need to sell this piano because I do not have the space to keep it. Below are the manufacturers specifications. Sheraton Mahogany Acoustic Upright Piano. Full length ribs into a notched liner. Solid spruce soundboard and ribs. Solid copper wound bass strings. Aluminum alloy action rails. Spruce keys with hardwood buttons. Grand piano key travel. Cut thread tuning pins. Yamaha designed hammers with T-fasteners. Vacuum Shield Mold Process (V-Pro) plate. Yamaha specifically seasons this piano for the U. The tuning stability, finish and overall musical integrity are enhanced over the long life expected of a fine piano. Permanent Crown Solid Soundboard. Yamaha utilizes a process that creates a permanent crown in the soundboard and at the same time minimizes soundboard cracking. The customer can feel confident that not only will the piano last for years, but the beautiful sound of a Yamaha piano will last a lifetime. 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. 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. 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. Extruded Aluminum Action Rails. Yamaha engineering developed a unique Extruded Aluminum Alloy Action Rail (bearing a Yamaha patent) this 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. 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. 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. 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. This service is a thorough check up and adjustment procedure to “rejuvenate” a piano after play-in and acclimation to its new environment.
