U3. Upright piano with an interesting back story…


This is a lovely piano which feels great to the touch. It is good value and is an ideal investment for any pianist. The condition of this piano is very good and will give many decades of service. It is also available on our Rent-to-Buy scheme.


Introduction. Yamaha are of course famous for reliable, high quality pianos and their instruments are often the measure by how we judge other brands. The U3 sitting at the top of the upright piano range has been consistently popular since its introduction. This company has worked hard to create and continue to build reliable and long lasting pianos. A Yamaha U3 piano is a must for any pianist to consider when investing in a musical instrument.

The Piano. This is a standard U3 which has a timeless, tasteful design and this piano is we think a superb example.  There is still the usual high quality build and high quality materials producing a superbly versatile piano. It is still a Yamaha U3 and is a superb piano for very beginner pianists right through to advanced pianists. This piano will provide many decades of reliable service for you. The piano featured here is a wonderful example dating from 1981. It feels really good to the touch producing the classic Yamaha U3 rewarding sound.

What’s the story? Well, this piano was assembled in Taiwan. There is no real disadvantage because it is still a U3. The advantage is that they are slightly cheaper making them quite a shrewd purchase.

The U3 piano measures: 132cm tall, 153cm long and 65cm deep.
