Most people are familiar with Yamaha pianos and most pianists have playe a U1 or U3 at some point in their career.  This Yamaha U3X (a.k.a. UX) is an upgraded model based on the U3 design.  The piano has a slighly larger profile to house the signifcant upgrade in construction.  The U3 is typically their best standard production upright, and this is a better, low-production model.

Unlike most uprights that have vertical backpost construction, the U3X has bracing in a star configuration, a concept used in Grotrian upright pianos, the very finest in the world.  This formidable construction gives the piano more stability, contributing to the wider dynamic range and deeper, more fundamental tone.  The voicing is also richer and more mellow than most Yamaha uprights.

Made in Japan in 1980, this professional studio upright is in fantastic condition and is great for all levels of play.  The U-series upright pianos are what made Yamaha's reputation, and this is one fine example.  If new, MSRP for a plain U3 is $14,259 (The Piano Buyer, Fall 2016 - Larry Fine).

Includes choice of new adjustable bench OR padded-top storage bench.
