The U Series soundboards and ribs are crafted from solid spruce that has been hand selected at our Kitami Mill in Hokkaido, Japan giving these pianos a richer, more resonant voice and evenly balanced timbre across the entire keyboard.

Years of cutting-edge research, including our proprietary wood-drying process, result in back posts that maintain their shape, strength and resonance for years to come.

Advanced V-Pro Frame

Yamaha was the first company to use an advanced Vacuum Shield Mold casting technology called V-Pro to create a stronger, lighter, more durable frame. Every U Series piano features a full-perimeter frame built to our exacting specifications at our Iwata Forge in Japan.
