What we think of the Yamaha NU1 AvantGrand hybrid upright piano
The Yamaha NU1 Hybrid instrument is most certainly fantastic value for money and brings the quality evident in the whole range of AvantGrand instruments to a new price point.
The NU1 incorporates the same action as you would find in a standard Yamaha acoustic upright piano. The quality of action components creates a distinctive and responsive touch just as it does on an upright piano. The NU1 also features a superb sample of the most recently developed CFX concert grand piano, itself one of the finest instruments available of its type. This is coupled with a wonderfully powerful and rich 40W amplifier and speaker system which gives wonderful projection to the sound.
The NU1, price wise, is comparable to the NEW Yamaha B1-SI silent upright piano and it is certainly worth comparing the two in store.
