  • Excellent Piano

    Jul 21, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Tone, Action, Quality
    Cons: Expensive

    Summary: I've had my Yamaha U1 for about 7 years. I've bought it used (about 5 years old) and it's been a wonderful musical instrument. Of all the upright pianos I've played, the only other brand that I liked more was Steinway. But, Steinways are a lot more ... read more

  • Excellent Musical instrument for even high-intermediate player

    Pros: High quality musical instrument for any pianist.
    Cons: Slightly expensive. Some warnings put out on grey market imports not made for north america

    Summary: I own a used (1982 make) Yamaha U1 Upright piano. I grew up playing a 44 inch Kawai and always admired my piano teacher's Yamaha U1. The keys are even, light to the touch and the quality of construction is excellent. The tone is a bit brighter than ... read more

  • My new old U1

    Mar 3, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Medium touch responce, strong bass, over-all good tone, not a hollow sound.
    Cons: Treble strings a bit bright. Left pedal doesn't bring the volume down.

    Summary: After realizing that the only grands I liked were at least 6 ft and over $12K used, I had to focus on uprights instead. Most were more hollow sounding than a 5 ft Weber. A local shop had a rebuilt U1 (40 yrs old, new hammers, strings and refinished ... read more

    Pros: Very affordable. Great Sound
    Cons: NONE

    Summary: Excellent Tone, What a Beautiful Instrument. I could not afford to pay $4000.00 for a use Piano. So I tried Ebay to see if I could pick one up for under $3000.00. I was very skeptical about buying a piano with out playing it first. But I ... read more

    Pros: Powerful, refined, beautiful sound and allows for subtle playing
    Cons: Gloss finish shows fingerprints and slight scratches behind book area

    Summary: I have studied piano for 30 years, and my wife is a piano teacher. The Yamaha is an excellent choice for someone who seriously wants to enjoy the true beautiful sound of a grand piano but does not have the space for a grand. This upright delivers ... read more

  • Brand new U1

    Mar 30, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Excellent action (especially for an upright), strong sustain and volume (power) Beautiful cabinetry
    Cons: Loud in a small room (like a residential living room) - hopefully correctable

    Summary: I spent around 4-months deciding on a piano, looking at nearly every brand and size available, and using Larry Fine's book as a guide. My requirements included an even, relatively light touch and action (because of arthritis in my wrists), and a clear ... read more

  • Just sold mine

    Oct 13, 2003 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Sound quality, even touch, holds the tuning well, ease of working on, solid construction.
    Cons: The music rack lets music slip off--especially sheet music.

    Summary: I just sold my 33 yr old U1. I have really loved it over the years, having taught piano on it for most of that time. I have been so happy with it that I thought I would replace it with the same model. But I bought a U3 instead. The sound and response ... read more
