Yamaha’s extended height 44-inch Console Piano.
It’s additional four-inches in height give it a string-length advantage over the standard 40-inch height of most Console pianos, so this is called an elevated Console. A Studio Upright piano starts at 45” tall – a mere one-inch taller than this model. The taller cabinet allows lengthier strings that deliver more power and continue to vibrate for a longer period of time that improves the “duration of tone” or sustain time. A taller piano also permits a more expansive soundboard in square inches producing a stronger overall tone-quality and especially, a more robust bass response. The piano-action inside benefits from a larger cabinet too, because it permits longer key-sticks, levers and larger individual parts for a more responsive feel that is also easier to regulate properly. As to vertical pianos – The taller, the better!

Eight Period furniture styles to select from
Traditional Sheraton style in satin mahogany wood.
This model was designed for the United States market in a traditional American furniture style, whereas most Yamaha pianos are in a square, simple, unadorned polished black style. The cabinet veneers are in red mahogany with a satin lacquer finish in a light, delicate Sheraton style with round, fluted legs and brass ferrules at the floor. The mahogany wood grain on the lid and sides has an interesting pattern. The music rack is ornate with a free-form design and the ornate hardware and pedals are solid polished brass. The functional music desk is sturdy for larger books with a sheet music lip for long musical scores. The middle pedal has the mute rail function for nearly silent practice. The original bench with matching fluted legs is included. The Yamaha model M500S elevated console piano was built at the modern Yamaha factory in Thomaston, Georgia so it is “Made in the USA!”
Stylish music rack and music desk is sturdy with a sheet music lip.

88 Keys Piano Warehouse & Showroom price – only $3950.
This instrument is a one-owner and has been a long-time resident here in Albuquerque, so it is happily acclimated to our unique climate. Though the piano was built in 2004 it has a modest amount of wear (low mileage). The overall condition is excellent; structurally and aesthetically. We provided a thorough action regulation, cleaning and multiple tunings for pitch stability in our restoration shop. The tuning pins are tight so it holds tune well and the all-important soundboard and bridges are perfect. Given Yamaha’s well-earned reputation for maintenance-free durability, this piano should provide decades of enjoyment and musical fulfillment. We’re happy to warrant the instrument for two years. Complimentary local, first-floor professional delivery is included.
