This model is a high-performance version of the Yamaha U3, which is highly capable in its own right. With a full-throated, well defined bass, colorful, singing treble, and extra responsive keyboard, this high-performance upright will serve your student’s needs with plenty of room to spare, but was built to serve the musical demands of much more advanced pianists as well. The Yamaha U-series is requested by more teachers shopping for/with their students than all other pianos combined. This piano is in mint condition inside and out. With pianos like this available at our shop, all with our 10-year warranty and famous lifetime full value trade-up guarantee, there’s no reason to fork over big bucks to buy a new piano.
