About Yamaha B Series Upright Acoustic Pianos
The Yamaha B Series is a range of three upright pianos. The Yamaha B1, B2 and B3E were designed by Yamaha as an accessible introduction to acoustic pianos. Each model in the series increases slightly in size so as to ensure there is a piano suitable for many homes and playing spaces. This signals Yamaha’s commitment to making music accessible to all, and creating pianos that experts and newcomers alike can enjoy. When space is an issue, players may be tempted to purchase a keyboard. Compact pianos like the Yamaha B Series provide the option of having an upright piano instead. To help you decide between a keyboard or a piano, you can read our blog on the differences between keyboards and pianos.
As an ideal option for those with limited space, the Yamaha B1 is the most compact piano of the B series models. The B2 upright piano has a larger cabinet, providing more space for the soundboard, and the Yamaha B3 piano has longer strings suited to any level of player. Whilst the Yamaha B series of pianos was launched as a budget-friendly alternative to some of Yamaha’s other ranges, it produces no less of a high quality sound and feel.
