    Brought Yamaha U3 recently, Dominic was most helpful. When you speak to someone on the phone or in person, and they provide helpful, no pressure insight information to assist making the right piano decision, this completes the sales process. Dominic ticks these boxes. Buying a Piano is a big investment for most people, getting it wrong due to not getting the right tone piano for the room for example, could impact the sound to say the least, so having comfort, no pressure advice is most welcome. The delivery company is very professional, quick and go the extra mile. We would recommend Chamberlain Music / Dominic to anyone, visit the store or have a call with Dominic before you commit to a purchase, as what we did. They also have good informative buying advice on their website, which I also found quite useful in the early search process.

What we think of the Yamaha U3S upright piano

The Yamaha U3 is built along the lines of the Yamaha U1, but is 10cm taller than its smaller cousin. The increased size of the U3 makes a huge difference to the overall sound quality of this expansive upright piano. The sound is big, resonant and beautifully controlled, and this is an instrument to take players beyond the realms of grade 8. The piano is constructed from carefully selected materials both internally and externally and consequently the action posses a real sensitivity. The U3 is equipped, like the U1, with a soft close keyboard fall and two piece top lid. However, this instrument also differs from the U1 in a number of key areas. The music desk is wider and longer which is perfect for longer scores or manuscript. The middle pedal is a sostenuto pedal, the same as you would find on a Yamaha grand piano, which allows you to selectively sustain some notes whilst playing normally on other parts of the keyboard. The U3 also has what Yamaha term a 'floating soundboard' whereby the soundboard is attached via a specially designed joint which allows it to vibrate more freely, thus improving overall resonance.

The result of a this is an incredibly popular piano. Purchased by music teachers, talented amateurs, improving students, it is used in practice rooms, school halls and teaching rooms the world over. It has the overall power to be a performance as well as practice instrument and is reliable, stable and incredibly well built. For those looking for the perfect balance of the best quality upright piano at the best price, look no further!

    Thank you so much for all of your help with this. Dealing with Chamberlain's is an absolute pleasure. I must also commend John Peel and his team - conscientious in every move they made. It was a real challenge getting my grand out of my cottage but they didn't get in a rush and inch by inch they succeeded. Not the sort of thing we see too often anymore!!

    After my eldest boy had passed the first piano exam using an antique Collard&Collard for practice, it was clear the old piano could not support the requirements of Grade 2 and beyond. Having pondered over digital pianos, second hand not-so-old pianos and various new ones, we decided on a new Yamaha U3s. We have now had the piano in the house for a couple of months, and clearly, this is indeed a wonderful instrument! The action is extremely precise, and the sound is crystal clear. Quality throughout! Having such a fine piano invites to playing, and the whole family is now enjoying it. My youngest son just secured a distinction on his first exam, and I would credit a small part of it to having been able to practice daily with a piano with same touch and feel as the piano used at the exam. So now it is just up to the young hopefuls to keep practicing for the next level! I would also mention the excellent service from Chamberlain music, including the nice gentlemen who delivered the piano swiftly and on time, and the piano tuner who came a few weeks after the piano were in place. If anything, I would recommend upgrading the castors. The piano is insanely heavy and comes with some small, basic castors, which makes it hard to move.

    Dear Dominic The delivery of the Yamaha U3S upright all went extremely smoothly and I am delighted with my choice of instrument. I look forward to many years of pleasurable playing. Can I take this opportunity of thanking both yourself and Jon Caton for assisting us in the smooth purchase of the Yamaha U3S. From the minute we walked in the door of Chamberlains, I felt we had come to the right place due to the care taken and advice given over choosing a suitable new piano. Chamberlain Music was recommended to us by other professional musician colleagues and we would not hesitate in passing on a similar recommendation. It was a pleasure doing business and I hope we shall be in touch again in the future. Best wishes, Caroline Gough.
