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.
- Advanced Scale Design
- Soundboard and Frame
- Redesigned Hammers
- Soft-Close Fallboard
- 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.
- Special rib 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.
Yamaha U Series upright pianos have long been a leading choice for educational institutions, professional musicians and discriminating home pianists.
