The Yamaha U3 Hammer is an under felted hammer.  Featuring 2 different types of felt at two different levels of compression.  This under felt helps maintains the piano tone as the hammer ages. It is generally seen in higher end pianos above 45 inches tall.

Piano hammers range in size depending on the scale of the harp or plate.  The hammer is the largest at the bottom most note and the smallest at the top note.  This is because the larger bass strings need a bigger force to get the string to resonate.  Yamaha Piano Engineer’s select each hammer design to complement the pianos Scale and intended use.
