The Yamaha U1 is the world's most popular piano. Designed to meet the needs of experienced pianists, the U1 is well-suited for home or professional use by players of every age and experience level. If you've been shopping for a U1, this is a fabulous opportunity: A beautiful natural wood-finish U1 priced thousands less than the comparable new piano.
This is in fantastic overall condition - the satin walnut finish is gorgeous and the brass hardware is polished and bright. The mechanical and musical aspects of this piano are equally rock-solid - we wouldn't expect anything less from a model that has one of the world's best reputations for durability and stability.
We found this U1 to be particularly enjoyable to play. The action is classic Yamaha - quick and light with great repetition. The tone is crisp and clear (like all Yamaha U series uprights) but with a great degree of body and fullness. A heavier hand will produce a great powerful tone that's surprisingly big for an upright. It has a great expressive range and will speak sweetly or boldly depending on how it's played.
Yamaha pianos feature high-polished ebony finishes almost exclusively - it's extremely rare that we come across one in this attractive Polished American Walnut finish. It's a great choice for more classic interiors and rooms where a polished black piano would be inappropriate. It's a fantastic musical instrument in a package that is very aesthetically appealing.
This piano features the remarkable PianoDisc iQ player system, installed by the previous owner. Invisible, with no control box, no CD's or disks needed. Play music using your smartphone, iPad, just about any modern device you already own.
