Yamaha SU7 upright piano review and information
The Yamaha SU7 is a brilliant piano, made with the best materials to the highest standards, however, they come with a hefty price tag and are a rare piano to find second-hand. If you have any technical info or corrections for this article, please email email@example.com.
When was it produced?
The Yamaha SU7 is still being produced now. Production start date TBC.
Where was it made?
The SU7 is handcrafted at Yamaha’s premier factory in Hamamatsu, Japan. All of Yamaha’s finest pianos are made at this factory, including the ‘U-series’ upright pianos, which we always have in stock. This same factory is where Yamaha produces its stunning CFX concert grand piano, worth £140k.
What differences between similarly named models?
The Yamaha SU7 replaced the SU131. It has the longest key-length of any Yamaha upright, which allows for better touch control. It also has six back posts to provide more stability to the structure.

Opinions from the forums, blogs, articles etc.? (try not to quote other dealers).
The flagship of Yamaha’s upright models, the SU7 represents the pinnacle of upright piano performance.
Who should buy them?
The Yamaha SU7 is suitable for concert pianists, or those who require the touch and tone of a top-quality grand but want a piano with a much smaller footprint.
Who shouldn’t buy them?
It’s a very very expensive piano so may be out of most people’s range. Those on a smaller budget should go for a Yamaha U3 or one of the upgraded models such as the Yamaha U300, U30A, U30BL, etc.
New and used prices.
The RRP of a new SU7 is £23,972 (Yamaha UK). They are so rare seconhand that it probably isn’t worth bothering to look for one.
Alternative models to consider similar to this.
I would definitely recommend either the Yamaha U300, U30A, U30BL or UX3 before convincing yourself that you need to spend £24,000 on an SU7. These models are suitable for ambitious students but come at a much lower price.
The Yamaha SU7 is a ridiculously great piano, but my general advice is to bear in mind the availability of the SU7 on the second-hand market – there are probably none available anywhere. You will either have to wait a very long time, buy a new one, or go for a similar top-quality model.
