Pianos for Sale

1986 Yamaha U3A (Special)


This top of the range Yamaha ‘U3A (Special)’, full size Upright piano (131cm tall) in immaculate ‘As New’ condition is a perfect option for a new piano buyer. Highly sought after and rare in the market, this late model U3A is an update to the U3H. It was manufactured entirely in Japan during the golden era of Japanese piano manufacturing, before Yamaha moved production of their pianos to Indonesia.

The high-gloss ebony cabinet is in perfect condition and has been refinished in our piano restoration workshop. All keys have been removed, cleaned, re-aligned and adjusted and the keyboard completely levelled. The piano action has been removed, fully inspected, serviced, regulated (overall adjustment) and the piano tuned to A440 concert pitch.

This piano has a third practice pedal which can be locked down to mute the sound of the piano, perfect for those families who need quiet time in the evening. The piano will also come with the original arching fully adjustable piano bench.

Yamaha U3A pianos contain a full gold-plated iron frame with an extremely stable tuning system. They are fully overstrung (have a longer string length) and have a high-quality timber underdamper playing mechanism. Unlike comparably sized new pianos now manufactured in Indonesia, the panels in this model are solid timber, not chipboard, and the piano has metal reinforcement throughout, making it an extremely robust instrument.

The latest updated model; the Yamaha YUS3, now details for around $18,995 and is in our opinion inferior to this model of piano, which we believe has a higher build quality and better parts and materials.
