Detailed Description


Like the b2, the b3 incorporates a solid spruce soundboard, but, apart from its large cabinet, it also has 5 back posts rather than 4, and this all contributes to the b3’s greater depth in the sound. Being taller it also has much longer strings and a larger soundboard, which again ensures that the sound can sing out far more fully and richly, and its longer keys enable the pianist to have more control at the keyboard.

B Series

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.

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.
