This particular piano is a rare find in Australia, a high quality Yamaha U3H(Special) polished ebony upright piano fully manufactured in Japan in 1981, during the golden era of Japanese piano manufacture. A popular choice for professionals and music teachers, the full Size U3 models are in high demand and short supply in Australia.
Yamaha U3H pianos have a full iron frame, are overstrung and have a high quality timber constructed underdamper playing mechanism. This piano stands apart from standard U3H models because it has had a brand new set of high quality Yamaha 'K' series natural felt hammer heads with inner felt installed. This has given the piano a magnificent clear and crisp treble and strong, deep bass tone more like a Baby Grand piano than an Upright.
The gloss black cabinet of this piano is in immaculate, as new condition, as is the keyboard and internal iron frame, soundboard and strings of the piano. The piano mechanism is also in immaculate condition with very little wear and tear. The brasswork is excellent, with no rust or damage. There is not one single mark or blemish anywhere on this piano which is a credit to the previous owners.
The new equivalent model to this piano, the YUS3, now retails for in excess of $17,500 and only comes with a 10 year factory warranty, compared to our own 12 year warranty and premium care package. Therefore, this piano represents excellent value for money and long term piece of mind.
Since receiving the piano we have completely disassembled it in the workshop in Adelaide and have conducted a full interior and exterior clean and detail, triple tuning to concert pitch as well as a full service and action regulation. The keyboard has been tightened and levelled and the touch evened up to ensure a smooth playing experience.
The piano also has a third practise pedal which locks down to halve the sound allowing nighttime or silent playing without disturbing others.
Matching duet piano bench also included with leather top and lift up seat for music book storage.
The price of the piano also includes professional insured delivery and installation, and 12 year warranty system including premium care package. Country and interstate enquiries welcome and encouraged, delivery & tuning packages interstate easily arranged.
