Hi,

Been thinking of switching from a Yamaha Clavinova digital to an acoustic piano. I am down to 3 choices, Yamaha U1, U3 or YUS1.

Please help me evaluate these 3 different types.
Thanks.

YUS1 is much nicer piano than the U1J which is how they are labelled in Australia. I'm not sure if that translates to wherever you are, as your profile is blank.

I believe the YUS1 is Japanese manufacture, whereas the U1J is made elsewhere in Asia (?Thailand?Indonesia?).

A properly reconditioned Yamaha U3 piano represents the best combination of value and quality above any other piano model that I’ve ever played. That is my opinion based on 22 years of piano playing and 7 years in the piano trade. There are lots of good reasons why Yamaha U3 pianos are so popular and come so highly recommended by piano teachers. The Yamaha U3 is probably one of the best all-round pianos for beginners, intermediates and professionals alike. It has a rich, resonant tone, balanced timbre, and a light, responsive feel that is a delight to play. Another great advantage of the Yamaha U3 is its size – not many of us have room to accommodate a grand piano, or even a baby grand, in the front room. The Yahama U3 upright piano however is approximately 150cm ide, and only 66cm deep, which makes it ideal for playing in your home.
