What you should know about Yamaha U1 SH2 Acoustic Upright Piano

Yamaha U Series acoustic upright pianos have long been a leading choice for educational institutions, professional musicians and discriminating home pianists. Now, thanks to comprehensive redesign, these world-standard instruments are better than ever, with numerous advances in materials and construction. Yamaha U1 upright pianos are the perfect entry-level instruments as part of the brand’s U series of high quality and professional pianos. Built to the same premium standards of craftsmanship as Yamaha’s U3, the U1 has a great sound, but in a smaller size. With its timeless and classic design, this model is both a satisfying and an enjoyable piano play. The keyboard is light and responsive, making this model perfect for learning pianists and beginners. In addition, there is a ‘practice pedal’ that enables new pianists to practice throughout the evening without disturbing others. The quality, durability and robust tone of this piano means that it can be the perfect starting piano, but will stay with you for life. This versatile and wonderfully sounding piano can see you through every step of the learning process, and further.

This model is available in range of colours and finishes, and this particular model is fitted with the renowned SH2 Silent System.

When the SILENT Piano™ function is activated, the hammers will no longer hit the strings and instead, a highly sophisticated sensor-technology captures all movements of the keys and sends them to the digital tone module. Play a real acoustic piano with headphones at any time, day or night without being disturbed or disturbing others. The Yamaha Silencing System is unsurpassed, allowing 24hr practice as well as possessing many other features including a range of pre-installed sounds, being able to record your own performances or connecting mobile devices to use the latest Apps.
