The U1 is one of the most sought after used pianos on the market. It is constantly recommended by teachers, tuners, piano technicians, and pianists. We focus only on the best U1’s to be found on the market. They are always in EXCELLENT like new mint condition! We always seem to find them, and almost always have a high quality used one in stock. Most people are surprised when we tell them the U1 they are looking at is actually a used piano.

Why buy a used piano??? Last year in the United States there were over an estimated 1 million pianos sold, of those, 20,000 were new, and the remainder of over 980,000 were used. It’s hard to compare a used piano to buying a used car or a used computer or almost anything else used. If you don’t normally buy things used, there are lots of good reasons to buy a high quality used piano like the Yamaha U1. Here are just a few:

  • a piano soundboard improves with age
  • a new piano’s tone doesn’t start to mature until it’s five to ten years old
  • a new piano’s action can take a few years to break in
  • a well cared for top brand piano like the U1 is virtually like buying new but for a much more reasonable price
  • Yamaha U1 pianos are designed and built to last 100+ years
  • We’ve been in business for 35 years and Yamaha is an amazing, awesome brand of piano, top quality, you are simply not going to have a problem with this piano. This is why we stand behind it with our 10 year warranty!

OUR PROMISE TO YOU: our pricing is so reasonably fair and coupled with the fact that the Yamaha U1 pianos have a proven track record of holding their value over time, we guarantee that at minimum we will give YOU what you paid us for the U1 piano itself when you trade up to one of our like new grand pianos within the next TEN years.
