The Yamaha U3S is the industry-standard upright piano for serious piano study. Famed the World over, the U3 is a piano requiring little introduction to the trade and music academies. Tall uprights have longer keys internally, so the touch will be more responsive. Longer strings and greater soundboard area ensure a fuller tone.This is the first Yamaha
upright piano variant at full height (131cm) representing great value and a true benchmark in professional standard.In place of the typical muffler pedal, the U3S middle pedal is ‘sostenuto’. Like a grand piano middle pedal, Sostenuto is for selective note/chord sustain. This is a key reason for this instrument being so highly respected in practise rooms in school music departments.This piano includes our expert piano preparation
assuring you of excellent performance and reliability. Buy your New Yamaha U3S from Venables Pianos.
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.
