Refinements in all elements of sound production have given today’s U series a richer , more resonant voice with evenly balanced timbre across the entire keyboard.
A perennial favorite among discerning pianists, the Yamaha U1 Upright Piano offers outstanding musical performance, setting the standards by which many other upright pianos are measured. The U1 is also available in a Silent Piano™ option.
Soundboard and Frame
Special lib configurations add strength to the soundboard, while back post and other advances further enhance rigidity, resonance and structural stability.
U Series hammers use materials specifically selected for each model to provide optimum tone production, response and long-term durability.
A damping mechanism, formerly used only in grand pianos, prevents the fallboard from dropping abruptly onto the keyboard, guarding against accidental injury or damage.
