Here at The Piano Shop Bath we are delighted to be selling pre-owned acoustic upright Yamaha pianos from our shop right here in the West Country. As part of our extensive range of competitively priced pianos, customers can expect to find both the U1 and U3 acoustic upright models available to try out and purchase right here in our showroom in Bath.
From the manufacturer that is known for making everything from instruments to motorbikes, furniture to robotics, Yamaha pianos offer the same durability and quality that we’ve come to expect from one of the largest electronics corporations on the planet. Yamaha was established over a century ago in 1887, and has since become the world’s largest producer of musical instruments. As well as the acoustic upright pianos that we sell here at The Piano Shop Bath, Yamaha are renowned for pouring their expertise into grand pianos, stage pianos, digital keyboards and synthesisers.
The Yamaha U1 and U3 upright acoustic pianos are known for their advanced scale design, which provides a richer tone with an evenly balanced timbre across every key. The hammers have been redesigned to accommodate durability over time and quick responsiveness. The Yamaha U3 is generally considered to produce warmer, richer tones than the U1, mainly due to its longer strings and larger soundboard. However the U1 still holds up on its own, producing beautiful tones with a balanced keyboard action, all in a smaller size cabinet that will suit homes where space is at a premium. It’s easy to hear and see why music departments and conservatoires across the country use both models extensively.
If you’re considering purchasing a pre-owned Yamaha upright piano, a useful way to identify the age of the piano is to consult the serial number. Yamaha include a unique serial number for each line of their instruments, indicating the year that the piano was released. The 7-digit serial number can be found underneath the top lid, located in the top right corner of the iron frame. Here at The Piano Shop Bath we’ve compiled the following list to help you identify the age of the Yamaha pre-owned acoustic piano which you may be interested in:
|Serial number beginning with…||Approximate date of manufacture|
