The U1 has become a perennial favourite among discerning pianists, setting the standard by which many upright pianos are measured. The U1 is the start point of Yamaha’s high end upright range, providing outstanding musical performance and an excellent tone.
This quality of sound is attained through Yamaha’s fine tuning techniques such as; the advanced scale designs for increased tone coloration and specially designed hammers that ensure the U1’s characteristically high quality sound is achieved. The structural integrity held by the U1 through the ribbed soundboard and solid back posts, makes certain that the increased rigidity results in a tone that resonates throughout the piano and across the entirety of the instruments range.
The U1’s classic design means it can fit seamlessly into any environment, making it a strong choice for the accomplished pianist wishing to add both a high quality instrument and a fine piece of furniture to their homes. This model is also particularly popular in schools due to its consistency and reliability.
