Product code: YUS3TA Manufacturer: Yamaha

Sharing many components with the industry standard U3 upright piano, the YUS3 is a further refined, semi handcrafted instrument with wonderful projection and resonance. Hand wound bass strings and mahogany hammers are among this pianos many refinements, making it an excellent choice for the professional pianist or enthusiastic amateur. But it is so much more than just a piano!

Yamaha's incredible TransAcoustic system allows you to not only play silently through headphones but also to use the pianos naturally resonant soundboard as a speaker, enabling you to physically turn down the volume of your piano. As with Yamaha's Silent piano range, the hammer stop bar prevents the hammers from hitting the strings and the sound that you hear becomes a beautifully sampled Yamaha CFX concert grand. Select from the 19 built in instrument voices, including grand and electric pianos, harpsichord, organs and strings, or plug in an external tone generator. Sounds played through speakers often sound confined due to the size of the speaker itself, but Yamaha's TransAcoustic system turns the whole piano into that loudspeaker, thus generating a much larger and richer sound.

The instrument also has a USB audio recorder allowing you to record your performances, and is also iPad compatible - download Yamaha's piano diary app to keep track of your progress or to upload your performances to social media sites!
