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!
