Made in Japan, the Yamaha U1 is Yamaha's most popular upright piano beloved by professional level pianists all over the world for its excellent musicality, powerful and durable design, deep rich tone, and precise and perceptive action feel. This satin walnut Yamaha U1 is in excellent refurbished condition with a warm, lyrical pure sound quality that offers a professional-level acoustic upright experience at a fraction the cost of a new U1! 

At 48" tall, the Yamaha U1 is a perfect choice for the pianist who wants the dynamic and expressive power of a quality professional full sized upright. The overall sound palate of this piano is gorgeously warm with a full-bodied liveliness and a great deal of tonal clarity and depth. The bass range roars deeply with the strength matching a baby grand piano. The mid range is very pleasant with a strong singing quality perfect for bringing out melodies. The high treble range is sparkly and inviting with a healthy level of tone that surpasses many grand pianos. 

The signature Yamaha action is always a joy to play on - with minimal wear for its age, this action is moderately lightweight, highly consistent, and affords the pianist a wide range of musical expression. This piano is also equipped with a felt mute-rail for quiet practice sessions! 

Having undergone our extensive refurbishing process and backed by our extensive FPC warranty, this Yamaha U1 performs fantastically and would make a perfect affordable yet high quality instrument for a dedicated piano student or hobbyist!
