The U1 is the entry level instrument in Yamaha’s U Series of professional-quality pianos. This piano features the same high quality components and high standard of construction as the U3, but with more compact dimensions. The U1 also has a less powerful tone than the U3, so is ideally suited to smaller rooms where a U3 might overpower, both physically and in terms of volume. Though the U1 is a smaller instrument, the quality of the tone is still full and precise, and the keyboard action light and responsive. We recommend U-Series Yamaha pianos to pianists of all abilities; the light, refined action makes these instruments suitable for the youngest beginners while the quality of touch and tone and sturdiness of build means a piano for life, for the most discerning pianist. The U1, like all Yamaha pianos, has a useful practice pedal, enabling evening practice without disturbing others. A pre-owned or refurbished Yamaha U1 is in the same price range as many new Korean or Chinese instruments, and is the perfect choice for the player (or parent) looking for a high quality ‘Piano for Life’ at an affordable price. We usually keep at least one or two Yamaha U1 pianos in stock; this 1976 instrument is in very fine condition and has been thoroughly serviced by our technicians. The tone is full and powerful, without being excessively bright, and the touch light and responsive, typical of Yamaha pianos. Feel free to call or email us with any queries relating to this piano, or visit our Bath showroom, open Tuesday to Saturday.
