The U series is seen as a respected choice among music professionals and institutions. They are a long established model and, as a result, have become refined to the nth degree by Yamaha’s artisan designers and producers.
The specially designed hammers for the U3S result in an unrivalled tone across the entirety of the range. This is further maximised through the Advanced Scale Design, developed by Yamaha to increase clarity and strength. The 131 cm acoustic chamber also leads to extended power and projection, resulting in a high quality sound output.
The U3S comes fitted with a ribbed soundboard and sturdy back posts in order to improve rigidity, providing the perfect basis for a solid, uncompromising sound that retains definition, from the richest base, to the brightest treble.
The Yamaha Floating Support System incorporated into the U3S to give a grand piano esque sound quality, depth and range to this upright. It allows the spruce soundboard to vibrate more freely, enabling richer bass and mid-range tones. The US3s finely tuned action and perfectly weighted keys; result in an excellently balanced piano, responsive to the playing style of any musician. A mark of this pianos longevity, durability, quality and success, is reflected in the incredible uptake it has received in schools.
