Yamaha U3 Pre-Owned 1980 at The Piano Shop Bath. This Yamaha U3 piano is a highly regarded acoustic Yamaha piano, often considered the benchmark for high quality uprights. Yamaha U3 pianos are commonly found in universities, theatres and ABRSM exam schools. U3 pianos will be familiar to piano teachers and performing pianists alike. U3 Yamaha pianos are best between model years 1980 and 2000.
The Yamaha U3 piano is well known for its powerful, rich and resonant tone with a light playable action. The height of the instrument allows for very long bass strings, which gives the U3 piano its characteristic full sonorous tone. For an instrument of this size and power, the U3’s action is even refined and responsive, making it suitable for all players from the child beginner to the accomplished performer. This piano allows precise control when playing pianissimo – the U3 is not a ‘loud piano’ it’s a piano which produces a fine controlled tone across the full range of expression. The sturdy Japanese build quality of the Yamaha U3 makes it a reliable, long-lived instrument which will continue to play well for a lifetime. The U3 is fitted with a useful ‘practice pedal’, which muffles the sound enough to play without disturbing others or in the evening.
This Yamaha U3 within our piano showroom in Bath was built in 1980, has a black gloss case in very good condition and has had its playing action thoroughly regulated by our dedicated technicians. This piano has a rich tone consistent across the full range, with neither the bass or treble being overpowering. The action plays wonderfully, having the characteristic U3 responsiveness. The Yamaha U3 piano is a great instrument and this particular piano is a great example. Feel free to call or email us with any questions or visit our showroom (open Tuesday to Sunday) and play!
