A Great Foundation

Supported by five sturdy wooden back posts and a strong cast iron frame, b Series pianos are endowed with Yamaha’s renowned pure, clear tone.  The b3 features a larger back post than the rest of the b series.  Every Yamaha upright piano also features a full perimeter V-Pro plate.

B3 Piano Hammer

an underfelt hammer is added to the b3 to give the 48 inch tall upright a crisper, clearer tone.  This is a similar piano hammer to the Yamaha U1, which the b3 shares a large number of similar components of.  The b3 piano key shank features a taller capstan for a larger tonal range.
