Fully Restored, Reconditioned and partially rebuilt 1952 Yamaha U1
Reconditioned by Yamaha, Hamamatsu, Japan (2019)
High quality, Japan built Yamaha U1 with rich resonant tone, balanced timbre, responsive light touch and restored to new standard casing. A superb looking and sounding instrument on account of the work completed on it:
Full Body Work and Brass Restoration, Replaced Hammer Heads, Strings & Soundboard Cleaned, Action Stripped and Individual Parts Cleaned, New Practice Pedal Strip, Action Re-Centered, Pedal Section Re-Padded, Regulated and Tuned Twice to Concert Pitch.
Aesthetically no difference between this U1 and a new U1.
The Yamaha U1 is one of the most popular all round acoustic piano ever made and all of our pre-owned U1's are imported directly from Hamamatsu, Japan through our trusted UK suppliers. When they reach the UK the cabinets are expertly stripped and refinished, including the brass works and all screws. The internals are overhauled, regulated to perform at their optimum best and hammer heads are voiced to produce perfect tone. On arriving in our showroom they are tuned twice and buffed.
With its warm, solid sound, the U1 draws you in and lets you immerse yourself in the piano from the first time you play it. This model epitomizes the Yamaha upright piano, and embodies a standard in pianos that has matured over decades—inheriting the fundamental specifications and characteristics, and remaining in high regard by professional pianists.
