Yamaha U1

Designed for the experienced pianist and professional musician, Yamaha U1 upright pianos are made in Japan and feature outstanding tone, touch and durability. A perennial favorite among discerning pianists, U1 upright pianos offer outstanding musical performance, setting the standards by which many other upright pianos are measured.

Thanks to comprehensive redesign, these world-standard instruments are better than ever, with numerous advances in materials and construction. Refined scale designs and components improve tonal performance, while other modifications enhance strength and durability. Extra-wide music desks provide plenty of room for sheet music. Concepts adapted from Yamaha grand pianos translate to extraordinary standards of excellence and elegance.

 


Advanced Scale Design

Refinements in all elements of sound production have given today's U series a richer , more resonant voice with evenly balanced timbre across the entire keyboard.

Soundboard and Frame
Special rib configurations add strength to the soundboard, while back post and other advances further enhance rigidity, resonance and structural stability.

Redesigned Hammers

U Series hammers use materials specifically selected for each model to provide optimum tone production, response and long-term durability.

Soft-Close Fallboard

A damping mechanism, formerly used only in grand pianos, prevents the fallboard from dropping abruptly onto the keyboard, guarding against accidental injury or damage.
