    Fantastic, speedy delivery, Storm Caroline notwithstanding. Easily erected and I like the clips rather than screws. Lightweight feature particularly relevant as I am expecting to fly to Norway in 2018...

    Thankyou for your speedy and efficient service. The case I bought is good value and well made. The only negative point I wish to make is the UPS packing box. If I had been an older person with...

What we think of the Yamaha U3 silent upright piano

Part of the revered Yamaha U series, the Yamaha U3 is an industry standard practice and performance upright piano, and the instrument of choice for beginners, students and professionals alike. Examples of all ages, from the old U3H and U3M to the new U3S can be found in the practice rooms of many of the most prestigious conservatoires, music colleges and performance venues across the world. Adding the new SH silent system builds on this further and the result is an extremely versatile instrument. Activate the silent mode and a rail moves between the hammers and the strings to 'switch off' the acoustic piano. Highly sophisticated optical sensor technology then captures the detailed movements of each key and you can hear the beautiful sound of a Yamaha CFX concert grand piano through your headphones - play a real acoustic piano with headphones at any time, day or night without being disturbed or disturbing others! Not only is the piano sound amazing, there are also 18 other instrument sounds, including grand and electric pianos, strings, organ and harpsichord. You can also play along with MIDI files, and use the USB audio recorder to record your performances as a CD ready file to your USB memory stick. Alternatively, using the iPad Piano Diary app you can upload your performances straight to YouTube or other social media sites. The possibilities are endless!

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. And the top-of-the-line sets extraordinary standards of elegance and excellence, incorporating concepts adapted from Yamaha grand pianos. As a Yamaha silent instrument is a real acoustic instrument it benefits from all the natural materials and craftsmanship that makes piano ownership so rewarding. With the silent mechanism deactivated the instruments play and perform just like the standard piano. However, unlike the standard piano, the silent system allows you to play without being distracted and without disturbing others.
