Yamaha B3 Upright Piano in Polished Ebony with Chrome Fittings (B3PEC)
In our opinion, a new Yamaha is better than a 1970’s or 1980’s Yamaha U1. Made in Yamaha's Indonesia factory, the B3 is based directly on the current Japanese made U1. For the more serious pianist, b3 is the perfect combination of performance and affordability. The introduction of the Yamaha b3 to the b series range sees it approach professional standards whilst remaining true to the b series' design philosophy of value and affordability. The b3 out-performs pianos costing a great deal more by incorporating Yamaha's traditional values as well as benefiting from the latest production techniques. b3's powerful yet articulate characteristics are produced by a larger frame and soundboard and higher grade hammers coupled with a proven, high specification action design.
Produced at a Yamaha factory in Indonesia from a scale design developed in Japan, b Series pianos are Yamaha’s most affordable entry-level uprights. Although reduced production costs allow budget-friendly prices, Yamaha makes no compromises in the materials and workmanship that go into these exceptional uprights.
Quality Components, Quality Sound
Supported by four sturdy wooden back posts and a strong cast iron frame, b Series pianos are endowed with Yamaha’s renowned pure, clear tone. High-grade hammers and a proven action design offer effortless playing and a highly responsive keyboard ‘touch’ that make these uprights ideal for beginning players.
Yamaha’s b Series features pianos in a range of heights, widths, and depths. The b1 and b2 boast slender profiles, making them ideal for small spaces. With its larger dimensions and heavier construction, the b3 upright requires a little more room but brings a rich, far-reaching sound.
