The Yamaha U3 is a very highly regarded acoustic piano, and has been for the last forty years. This model is commonly found in universities, theatres and ABRSM exam schools, and will be familiar to instrumental teachers and performing pianists alike.
The U3 is well-known for its powerful, rich and resonant tone and light, playable action. The height of the instrument allows for very long bass strings, as long as most baby grand pianos, which gives the U3 its characteristic full, sonorous tone. For an instrument of this size and power, the U3’s action is consistent, refined and responsive, making it suitable for all players from the child beginner to the accomplished performer, and allowing 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 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.
We usually have at least one or two pre-owned or refurbished U3 in stock, usually in gloss black like the one below, so why not visit our showroom and try one for yourself?
