If you are new to the world of pianos, the Yamaha U1 is the best-selling and most teacher-recommended piano model ever made. It would be a mistake to think of this piano as “old”. This piano is a testament not only to Yamaha’s long tradition of making solid, good-quality pianos but also to the longevity of pianos in general. Most pianos can easily achieve a human lifespan of 80-100 years before needing to be rebuilt or retired. This piano is all original, with internal parts in barely-used condition, including the original Yamaha hammers and action parts, which reveal barely any wear at all, epitomizing the classic adage, “It’s not the years, it’s the mileage”. The cabinet is still in very fresh condition even compared to pianos decades newer. Yamaha uprights like this are tough to keep in stock as piano teachers helping their students shop for a piano recommend this model more than any other. They combine high performance and an affordable price into one irresistible package. Fortunately for you, we go out of our way to get them as often as we can. Like every piano we sell, it comes with our 10-year all parts and labor warranty, as well as our enormously popular lifetime upgrade guarantee.
