Yamaha U1 piano review

The Yamaha U1 is an industry standard instrument. With a responsive touch, wide dynamic range and good sustain, the professional series Yamaha U1 upright has become an established favorite amongst institutions, tutors, students and in the home.

It is widely known that quality upright pianos over 120cm in height invariably sound so much better than those just under. In comparison with the preceeding model P116, 121cm Yamaha uprights deliver a good bass, rich middle and clear treble – coupled with good dynamic range and responsive action.

It is these most recent examples of 121cm Yamaha uprights that have created such a strong market. Earlier offerings still bearing the U1 name do not feature the wide tone range, colour and precence in the bass. So in fact, if you are considering a reconditioned / pre-owned Yamaha U1, don’t be fooled that our praise is for the same instrument.

Whilst we promote new, quality pianos for a good reason, sometimes the piano you want is out of reach and of course a pre-owned example may be tempting. The best option for you in such case is to invest in a B3E or P121. These new models are heavily based on the current and best design U1 – and so they inherit much of the qualities. They do need more preparation to get the best from them, but they are most often the better choice vs a pre-1999 Yamaha U1.
