Designed for the experienced pianist and professional musician, Yamaha U1 upright pianos are made in Japan and feature outstanding tone, touch and durability. A perennial favorite among discerning pianists, U1 upright pianos offer outstanding musical performance, setting the standards by which many other upright pianos are measured.
The U series have rich, resonant voices with evenly balanced timbre across the entire keyboard. Special rib configurations add strength to the soundboard whilst back post and other advances further enhance rigidity, resonance and structural stability. U series hammers use materials specifically selected for each model to provide optimum tone production, response and long term durability. A damping mechanism, formerly used only in grand pianos prevents the fallboard from dropping abruptly onto the keyboard, guarding against accidental injury or damage. These world standard instruments have numerous advances in materials and construction. Refined scale designs and components improve tone and others enhance strength and durability. Extra wide music desks also provide plenty of room for sheet music.
Many people believe that the depth and volume of sound produced from an acoustic piano will never be replicated in any digital model. The full, rich sound produced from an acoustic piano lends itself to full expression and dramatic pieces. The structure and quality of the cabinet ensure that this beautiful instrument will become a valued part of your home to be enjoyed for many years to come. Yamaha have become widely regarded as one of the most respected acoustic piano producers in the world. Their exceptional attention to detail, high quality features and craftsmanship provide you with a consistent instrument that you can put your full trust in.

All Pianos are delivered by Gear4music having been tuned and prepared before delivery. It is recommended that you have your new Piano tuned 4-6 weeks after delivery to its final location. A new piano requires tuning due to the changes in temperature and humidity of its environment which can cause expansion or contraction of the components altering the tension of the strings. Movement of the piano’s cabinet within the delivery process can also be a factor in this. The cost of this tuning is the responsibility of the customer and is not part of the purchase price.
PLEASE NOTE: Acoustic Pianos do need to be individually set up prior to dispatch. This process can take 3-4 weeks.
