U3 52" Professional Collection Acoustic Upright Piano
An expansive soundboard and acoustic chamber give the 131 cm (52") U3 extended power and projection, with the peerless tonal and expressive control of the legendary Yamaha action.
Nieve particularly likes the sound of an upright piano and has been investigating the use of a dampener at home, not only to keep the peace with his neighbours but also for it’s sonic qualities. “I have a Yamaha upright at home,” says Steve. “What I am enjoying about it is this thing called a moderator, which is like a mute so that the neighbours don’t get upset. It basically lowers a piece of felt over the top of the strings and reduces the volume of the sound and creates a new sound which is soft and beautiful. I’m enjoying that very much. I don’t know how to achieve that with a grand piano. I’ll have to look into that, whether I can put something over the strings when I play.”more
