Introducing the Yamaha U1 Upright Piano c.2013

A perennial favourite among discerning pianists, the U1 offers outstanding musical performance, defining the standards by which other upright pianos are measured. A perfect combination of outstanding engineering and attentive craftsmanship, the U1 is a reliable and robust instrument that is used and trusted by amateur and professional musicians all over the world.

While 121cm tall and the same size as the b3 and P121 models, the U1 is crafted in Hamamatsu Japan at the same factory as the CX Series grand pianos, and benefits from refinements including a more mature grade of spruce for the soundboard along with an elegant, soft-closing fallboard and an extended length music desk.

Our second hand Yamaha U1 upright piano was purchased new from Chamberlain Music in 2013 and has been little used by one owner in the years since. This piano presents a fantastic opportunity to acquire a current model generation Yamaha U1 at a fraction of the price of a new equivalent, and is currently being prepared in our workshop, soon to be on display and ready for selection.

Design heritage and expertise

The Yamaha U Series has been 65 years in the making and these new, improved models are better than ever before. Improvements include a redesigned scaling and frame for improved power and consistency, along with structural enhancements to improve stability and longevity. A long music desk is ideal for those longer scores or individual sheets.

Superior component quality and refinement

The Yamaha U Series is crafted at Yamaha's main factory in Hamamatsu, Japan by the same craftsmen who produce the class leading CX Series grand pianos. Wooden components come from Yamaha's wood processing plant in Asahikawa, Hokkaido, including the solid Alaskan spruce soundboard. These parts are specially selected for maturity and harmonic quality.

Specially selected hammers

Refined lambs wool hammers are specially selected for Yamaha U Series uprights, which have a layer of under-felt to enhance the warmth of tone and also ensure the hammers stand up to a lifetime of playing.

Soft-closing fallboard

The Yamaha U Series is the first series in the Yamaha lineup to feature a soft-closing lid or fallboard. A luxurious feature previously only found on grand pianos and means no more trapped fingers!

Low maintenance costs

Each instrument leaves Yamaha workshops in optimum condition, with the highest level of quality control and ready for a lifetime of service. Each Yamaha U Series upright is prepared by our in house technical team to ensure it delivers optimum performance.
