A fully featured Yamaha acoustic piano, at an excellent price.
Yamaha B1 Upright Piano | Polished Ebony |Chrome Fittings
The Yamaha B1 piano is a beautiful upright acoustic piano designed to be compact with a full 88 note keyboard and has nice chrome fitting too. The modern design and highly polished ebony cabinet (with a mirror like quality) make this piano look amazing. The key action is lovely and responsive with nice tonal changes on touch, and using the middle 'celeste' or practise pedal you can quieten down the sound to play for example late at night or with people in the same room. This feature puts a 'felt' inbetween the hammers and the strings to make the sound a lot quieter (a useful feature for some households). This piano is extremely popular, it plays and looks great! I think you should get one!

COMBINING HIGH QUALITY WITH FUNDAMENTAL PERFORMANCE
Yamaha designs and manufactures its soundboards, frames, keyboard actions, and other piano parts with unwavering reliability and under the strictest quality control. All parts are assembled by skilled craftsmen to create a thoroughly balanced piano that combines Yamaha's uniquely pure sound quality with excellent performance. The result is a high level of expressiveness that responds faithfully even to those who are just playing the piano for the first time.
PERFECT SIZE FOR ANY INSTALLATION
The b series was designed with an emphasis on compactness in every aspect—height, width and depth. The b1 and b2 have been constructed with special care and detailed attention to each, and the compact size (a height of 109 cm for the b1 and 113 cm for the b2) makes them ideal for limited spaces. The b3 has a height of 121 cm, making it a little larger than the b1 and b2, and giving it a more expressive sound.
ELEGANT EXTERIOR WITH EXQUISITE COLOR VARIATIONS
Augmenting the elegant and luxurious polished ebony finish, a polished mahogany finish that brings out the beautiful wood grain as well as a stylish polished white finish are also available. Select the one that best enhances the interior of your room or performance space.
Produced at a Yamaha factory in Indonesia from a scale design developed in Japan, b Series pianos are Yamaha’s most affordable entry-level uprights. Although reduced production costs allow budget-friendly prices, Yamaha makes no compromises in the materials and workmanship that go into these exceptional uprights.
Quality Components, Quality Sound
Supported by four sturdy wooden back posts and a strong cast iron frame, b Series pianos are endowed with Yamaha’s renowned pure, clear tone. High-grade hammers and a proven action design offer effortless playing and a highly responsive keyboard ‘touch’ that make these uprights ideal for beginning players.
Yamaha’s b Series features pianos in a range of heights, widths, and depths. The b1 and b2 boast slender profiles, making them ideal for small spaces. With its larger dimensions and heavier construction, the b3 upright requires a little more room but brings a rich, far-reaching sound.
