Yamaha U-Series Uprights - Professional Instruments for Home and School

Yamaha U-Series Uprights are the most sought-after professional upright pianos in the Yamaha acoustic piano line-up. They come in two taller sizes: the U1 at 48" (shown) and the U3 at 52". The U1, as the best seller, is not only incredibly popular for the home, but is the "workhorse" practice room piano of almost every music school and conservatory in the country. It has been sold and taught on in America for over 50 years, giving it near legendary status.

Priced in the mid-range, the target customer for this line is someone seeking a very high quality upright piano that they see as a potential multi-generational purchase. In addition to music departments, families are buying this piano for serious music students.

As the world-wide leader in musical instrument manufacturing and education, this line represents the backbone of Yamaha's upright piano line. Both models use Yamaha's best scale designs, most responsive actions, best quality hammers and radial rib design on the soundboard to create the best tone.

As with all Yamaha musical instrument products, 100% of the manufacturing and design process occurs in Yamaha factories by Yamaha staff, technicians and desingers. U-series pianos are manufactured in their Japan upright factory.

Yamaha also offers a high-end series of handcrafted Premium Upright pianos - the YUS series. This consists of the YUS1 at 48" and two 52" models, the YUS3 and YUS5. These instruments are manufactured to the same standards, using the same materials and the same design features (where applicable) as their hand-built 9' Concert Grand.

All U-Series pianos come with slow-close key covers, matching benches and Yamaha's 10 year parts and labor warranty. Each piano is fully prepped and tuned prior to delivery by a Jordan Kitt's trained staff technician, with a second complimentary tuning in the home within 60 days after delivery.
