A very compact upright designed and built by Yamaha with a clean, melodic and positive tone. Near in price to many similar size modern-style uprights of inferior makes or second hand, the B1 is clearly a great choice when keeping the cost down, enjoying benefits of new and having confidence in the Yamaha brand.This has to be one of the most popular pianos where delivery access and room space are a concern. Free from pillar legs, this modern-style piano takes up less space visually – and physically when it is negotiating a tight corner or staircase!
Our “No Drop Shipping” Promise
When buying from Venables Pianos, we provide our all important “No Drop Shipping” Promise
. We will “know your piano” before you receive it.
- Your piano will arrive with us from Yamaha – if not already in store – and we will carefully test and check each component
- full inspection of cabinet
- regulate (adjust the keyboard, action and pedal mechanism for optimum touch),
- voice (adjust the hammers for an even and responsive tone) – even on a bespoke level (warm, neutral, clear)
- and of course tune this piano before delivery.
This work is in addition to the standard manufacturer’s factory and pre-dealer despatch “preparation”. The difference is remarkable and assures you of quality control and instrument preparation we are proud to put our name to.It is unfortunate that due to the low profit of the lower priced pianos and trading models of music stores that the assumed trust in the Yamaha brand means high volume low margin sales with corners cut. Once the piano is in your home, a freelance piano technician would likely charge over £320 to provide the technical attention we deliver in all our pianos here. To instruct Yamaha Music Europe GMBH (UK)’ appointed piano carriers to deliver directly to you saves the cost of delivery to you from the store, omits any quality control and piano prep operations by the store, and ultimately a false economy. New acoustic pianos are not ‘boxed appliances’ and regardless of brand reputation for quality and uniformity, it is simply impossible to deliver the same standard of piano to your home whilst bypassing traditional piano store service.
