Derby Piano Teachers Review Yamaha B1 upright Piano

| January 25, 2012

Derby Piano Teachers Review of the Yamaha B1 upright Piano Yamaha’s most affordable piano ever. No corners have been cut. No compromises made in materials or workmanship. They simply set out to design a fully featured Yamaha piano but at a lower price. The b Series, like all Yamaha pianos, are instruments of extraordinary natural beauty, combining art, craftsmanship and technology; a pleasure to play and to own.

Yamaha B1 upright Piano reviewThe Yamaha B1 has a pleasing tone that is clear and melodic, the action is responsive and the cabinet discrete and compact. For tight turns, restricted access, the minimal dimensions of the Yamaha B1 are a key benefit. However, the saving in standing floor space required by short uprights is very slight (usually just a few centimeters) at the cost of a greater compromise on tone and feel.

The laminated soundboard is made of 3 plies of soundboard-grade spruce producing a stable and resonant tone whilst maintaining a low price. The B1 is available to order in a choice of finishes to suit your decor.
