Premium soundboard, for maximum projection and outstanding tone
The heart and soul of every Yamaha piano is the solid spruce soundboard, selected from only the finest top 10% of quarter-sawn solid spruce. You'll be captivated by the harmonic richness and incredible detail that can never be achieved with lower-quality laminated materials. The finest pianos in the world rely on solid spruce soundboards for maximum amplification, tone, and sustain - which is why you'll find it in every Yamaha piano.
Long-term performance and reliability
The crown of the U1's soundboard is reinforced with full-length ribs that continue to the edge of the soundboard. They are then glued to the notched liner (or innter rim on the grand piano), for optimum transfer of vibration to the body of the piano. The extra reinforcement ensure maximum tonal quality and sonic depth that will last for years, as well as enhancing tuning stability for consistent performance.
The keys to great playing feel

When you play a Yamaha every nuance and detail of your playing is captured, thanks to the fast response and effortless repetition. And every Yamaha piano is designed to have the same optimum key travel, so every Yamaha piano will play exactly the same.
