Introducing the Yamaha U5 upright piano

Made in c.1999 our Yamaha U5 is a great second hand purchase. It shares much in common with the Yamaha U3S, including its solid spruce 'floating' soundboard, action, key coverings, sostenuto pedal and 131cm tall frame. Additional refinements over the standard U3 specification include a lever operated celeste mechanism for quiet practice, a tilting music desk and an opening front panel to enable the sound to project much more like that of a grand piano.

Visually the piano is almost identical to the current top of the range YUS series model, YUS5, with beautifully veneered mahogany accents on the music desk and an elegant soft-close fall that smoothly retracts into the piano when opened.

The piano is a powerful and resonant instrument, a great alternative to a new U1 or U3, with superior component and tonal quality to that of a small grand.

A wonderful professional quality instrument, on display and ready for selection.
