Introducing the Yamaha U3 Upright Piano

The industry standard upright piano for practice and performance and perhaps the most well known and recognised of all upright pianos. Yamaha's U3 is used all over the world in schools, colleges, studios, performance venues, dance studios, private homes, the list goes on!

Offering outstanding musical performance, the U3 is 10cm taller than the U1 and benefits from enhanced features such as a floating soundboard for improved resonance and a sostenuto pedal.

At 131cm tall it has an expansive sound chamber enabing superb power and projection, while similar length keys to a grand piano provide a wonderfully delicate and responsive touch.

Also available with Silent Technology - allowing you to play silently, using headphones, any time of day or night.

Design heritage and expertise

The Yamaha U Series has been 65 years in the making and these new, improved models are better than ever before. Improvements include a redesigned scaling and frame for improved power and consistency, along with structural enhancements to improve stability and longevity. A long music desk is ideal for those longer scores or individual sheets.


Superior component quality and refinement

The Yamaha U Series is crafted at Yamaha's main factory in Hamamatsu, Japan by the same craftsmen who produce the class leading CX Series grand pianos. Wooden components come from Yamaha's wood processing plant in Asahikawa, Hokkaido, including the solid Alaskan spruce soundboard. These parts are specially selected for maturity and harmonic quality.

Specially selected hammers

Refined lambs wool hammers are specially selected for Yamaha U Series uprights, which have a layer of under-felt to enhance the warmth of tone and also ensure the hammers stand up to a lifetime of playing.

Soft-closing fallboard

The Yamaha U Series is the first series in the Yamaha lineup to feature a soft-closing lid or fallboard. A luxurious feature previously only found on grand pianos and means no more trapped fingers!

Low maintenance costs

Each instrument leaves Yamaha workshops in optimum condition, with the highest level of quality control and ready for a lifetime of service. Each Yamaha U Series upright is prepared by our in house technical team to ensure it delivers optimum performance.
