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 preceding model P116, 121cm Yamaha uprights deliver a good bass, rich middle and clear treble – coupled with good dynamic range and responsive action.
Yamaha U1 piano cabinet
The cabinet features include a lock. The middle pedal is a standard muffler rail for muted practice. Front brass castors and rear steel castors. One piece fallboard and 2 piece top.For school use, public spaces or requirement to frequently move the piano a short distance, where the piano may not always be sited against a wall, a rear toe conversion can be installed to both upgrade the castors to school-type resin castors with a protruding rear mount for the rear castor. We offer this service frequently for such environments and use.
HIGH-QUALITY MATERIALS AND ADVANCED CONSTRUCTION
The exceptional high-quality sound and durability of the U series have been achieved through outstanding design, thorough quality control of the wood materials, and unique application of advanced technology to craft parts that are resistant to warping and twisting. The result is extraordinarily smooth and sensitive playability, with even the most delicate nuances preserved and given full expression. We have packed all of Yamaha’s unique commitment in this instrument to ensure that your piano playing enjoyment lasts for a long time.
