Piano Sales

Second hand (English) pianos often available. Please phone for current stock!

Japanese Yamaha Pianos

These superb, specially selected pianos were previously privately owned in Japan. They've been fully checked through in the UK and brought back to an ‘almost new’ condition.  I can now offer them for sale at less than half the cost of an equivalent new Yamaha.

I can supply three models, the U1 and U3 derivatives, which are black upright pianos and the C3, which is a black 6’ 1” grand piano.  All are guaranteed for five years.  Where possible I try to obtain the improved models over the basic U1/U3. In order of improvement these are, the UX-1 and its successor the UX-10, also the UX-3 and UX-30.  Action design and hammer quality are improved in these other models, the X denotes a differently constructed back with an X shape bracing giving more stability.  It makes the secondhand prices even more attractive since their original unit cost is quite a bit more than the basic U1/U3 type. In older models, there are the YUS types, some of which have the X-braced back as well.

Yamaha U Series

Yamaha U Series upright pianos have long been a leading choice for educational institutions, professional musicians and discerning home pianists as they offer outstanding musical performance.  They have a high standard of elegance, excellence and quality and incorporate concepts adapted from Yamaha grand pianos. Prices start from c£2,750 depending on age and availability. Please contact me for a more detailed quote.
