YAMAHA YU3, 1989-2000 52"    Anthony  - 979-292-8260
This 52" professional studio upright from Yamaha is tops.  The YU3 model is an upgrade from the U3 model.  

The YU3 features upgraded backposts, upgraded hammers with German felt, German strings, and greater attention to
details in the manufacturing process.  

The YU3 is the closest thing to a handcrafted upright from Yamaha, the direct predecessor to the current YUS3.  

The result is a Yamaha with a perfect tone that competes with some of the elite German brands like Seiler, Schimmel &
Bechstein.
