Introducing the pre-owned Yamaha U3S upright piano c.2006
Privately owned since new and lightly used, our second hand Yamaha U3 upright piano is an ideal choice for the advanced musician, delivering professional level quality at an intermediate level price.
The U3 has always been a yardstick for performance quality uprights, a modern example such as this benefiting from a sostenuto pedal, as found on a grand piano, along with a floating soundboard specially designed to enhance the piano's resonance.
It is said that buying a U3 is the closest one can get to a grand piano without actually buying one, with a quality of tone and a level of responsiveness that exceeds many a small grand, and it is this which makes it the leading choice for many professionals, teachers, institutions and amateur pianists all over the world.

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.
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.
