Yamaha Pianos UK – What’s The Difference Between the Yamaha U3 and U1?

Yamaha Pianos UK

Yamaha pianos UK wide have long been popular. When you think of musical instruments, Yamaha is usually the first name that comes to mind. They have an outstanding reputation in the industry for quality and innovation. But, with so many pianos for sale, how do you choose the right one? Below, we take a further look at the Yamaha U1 and the Yamaha U3.

When first looking for a Yamaha piano for sale, it is hard to tell the difference between the Yamaha U1 and the U3. However, it all comes down to size. The Yamaha U3 is 131 cm in height, which is 10 cm more than the U1, which is 121 cm. All of the best upright pianos should be at least 120 cm, and, therefore, you can be sure of quality from both options.

Nevertheless, the U3 does offer some advantages, providing a deeper and arguably better quality sound. The richer and warmer sound comes from the fact that the U3 can house longer strings. Also, you can have a touch that is very close to that of a grand piano, as the extra space inside the piano means you can house longer keys. Or, you could have a larger soundboard, which produces a more resonant and richer tone.

Most musicians can feel the difference when they sit down and play both pianos. The U3 is more comfortably balanced and smoother, and a lot of people feel they have more control with it.

However, this is not to say that the Yamaha U1 is a bad piano – far from it! Other than the points mentioned above, they are virtually equal. Moreover, the U1 isn’t classified as small, and thus the sound is still good and rich. It is ideal for those who do not have as much space or money to spend, yet still want one of the high quality Yamaha pianos UK.
