Performance grade instrument based on the U3 model
Please select instrument options
The YUS3 takes the proven excellence of Yamaha’s highly regarded U3 upright piano model and adds further refinement. Hand-made hammer felts and a superior set of strings help to produce a crystalline tone and a bell-like upper register, while a trademark U3 floating soundboard provides extra projection and sustain capabilities.
Its case is more traditionally shaped with smooth contours and, like the U3, features a soft fall mechanism. This piano’s famous longevity makes it a sensible choice for the education market, but the addition of a fully functioning sostenuto pedal ensures that it is also more than adequate for professional performances.
Like most Yamaha uprights, the YUS3 is available as a Silent or TransAcoustic piano. The SH silent piano module includes a switch to engage a mechanism that stops the hammers hitting the strings. Players can continue to practice playing the real acoustic action while sensors under the keys trigger high quality samples which can be heard through headphones.
Yamaha’s more recent TransAcoustic technology is an amazing innovation that takes the Silent system a step forward. By using the piano’s own soundboard as a resonator it is capable of amplifying sound without speakers. This enables players to change the tone and adjust the volume of the instrument among many other useful functions. It also has a USB port and wireless capabilities which can be helpful in the studio or for practice when used with one of a variety of free apps.
