Why Yamaha’s upright piano is still the best in the business
Digital pianos are a great technology for music, but they’re also a lot more expensive than most other options.
Yamaha’s X5 is no exception, and it’s the company’s latest attempt to compete with a lot of other manufacturers’ offerings.
We recently had the chance to talk to its chief marketing officer, Daniel Bowers, about the X5’s impressive performance.
Yamaha says the X3 and X5 are the only upright pianos on the market that can play standard recordings and have been in production since 2005.
That’s over 20 years.
When the X4 debuted, it was priced at $1,200.
The X5 has a starting price of $3,499, and its full-size model starts at $5,799.
Bowers said Yamaha’s approach to pricing is based on “the economics of the market.”
The X3, X5, and X3 Plus all sell for $1 (plus a $150 premium), and the X6 has a price tag of $2,999.
We were able to confirm that the X7 starts at a more modest $2.99.
If you’re going to spend that much money on an instrument, you should get the most bang for your buck.
But, we know, it’s worth noting, there are some differences between the X8 and X9 models.
For one, the X9 has an 8-inch screen, while the X10 has a 10-inch one.
The difference is that the 8- and 10-in.
models are a little larger than the X1 and X2, while a 10.6-in model has a 4-inch display.
Both have touchscreens, too.
We also heard that the Yamaha X5s are the most expensive upright pianas, and they’re the ones you’ll likely be able to find in stores.
They also have a “progressive” sound that’s a bit more punchy than most of Yamaha’s offerings.
“The X5 Pro is a bit of a special instrument for us because it’s such a versatile instrument,” Bowers told us.
“You can use it in a more traditional way and the more progressive sounds that come out of the X2s, the more you can use the X20s in a classical way.”
Bowers and Yamaha’s marketing department didn’t give us any details about what the X15s sound like, but we heard it sounded like the X11s.
The Yamaha X10 is another midrange-heavy offering that’s more expensive.
It’s available with a 7-inch touchscreen and a 2-inch monitor, both of which cost $2 in the U.S. The price will drop to $1.49 for the full-sized model and $2 for the 5- and 7-in models.
You can also get a 12-inch model for $2 more.
Yamaha has been making smaller upright pianes for years, but the X-10 and X10 Plus are its biggest and best.
The 12-in and 5-in versions start at $3.99 and $3 for the 7- and 12-ins.
Both are available in white, black, or silver.
If your budget is tight, we’d recommend going for the X40s, X50s, or X60s.
They’re smaller, lighter, and have higher-quality components.
If they don’t sound like a big improvement, you can go for the more affordable X60.
The most expensive model, the Yamaha CX-S, starts at just $1 per month.
If that’s not enough, you could consider the Yamaha R30.
The R30 is a midrange-driven version of Yamaha CXL, and there are two versions: a 12.3-inch, $1-per-month model that comes with a 2.6GHz processor, a 7.1-inch version with a 4GHz processor that costs $2 per month, and a 12 inch model with a 5GHz processor.
Both versions include a “Progressive” mode that lets you adjust the bass and treble in the same way as the X70s.
Yamaha isn’t making a ton of money from the R30s, but it’s a good starting point for people who want to get into the world of high-end music.
Yamaha also has the Yamaha T20, a 6-inch piano with a touch screen.
It costs $1 a month for the 12- and 5.25-in version.
And you can get a 14-inch and 6.25in version for $4.99 per month in the United States.
Yamaha doesn’t have a specific price for the Yamaha Z1s, and we’ve only heard them in person.
But if you’re into music and want to take your piano to the next level, we think the Yamahas are worth a look.
