Yamaha took everything they learned from more than a century of crafting fine pianos to create an instrument to inspire the next generation of players. The result is an elegant, compact piano with a responsive keyboard and a clear, resonant tone. Whether you’re a beginner, a budding virtuoso or accomplished musician, the B-Series is an absolute joy to play.


The B3 is at the top of the B-Series line and approaches professional standards while remaining true to the series’ design philosophy of great value with a very affordable price. At the heart of the B3 is a solid spruce soundboard which produces rich and colorful tonal resonance.

The B-Series takes its inspiration from Yamaha’s popular U-series upright piano, with soundboards and ribs crafted from premium tone woods and fine spruce. The result is pianos with a tone that performs far beyond the entry level.

Years of cutting-edge research, including Yamaha’s proprietary wood-drying process, result in back posts that maintain their shape, strength and resonance for years to come.



Yamaha was the first company to use an advanced Vacuum Shield Mold casting technology called V-Pro to create a stronger, lighter, more durable frame. Every B-Series piano features a full-perimeter frame built to Yamaha’s exacting specifications at their Iwata Forge in Japan.

Yamaha artisans in their factory in Kakegawa, Japan oversee the winding of pure copper and adjust the balance and tension of each bass string to the exacting standards and sound profile of every B-Series piano.

Often copied but never equaled, the patented Yamaha aluminum action rail helps assure your piano is resistant to tiny fluctuations in humidity and temperature over time.



Yamaha specifically seasons this piano for the market into which it is shipped. The tuning stability, finish and overall musical integrity are enhanced over the long life expected of a fine piano.



Each key of a Yamaha piano is individually tested and measured for the corrections needed to obtain uniform “down weight” pressure. Yamaha actions play correctly and uniformly. This balancing helps ensure a lifetime of superior touch and control across the keyboard.




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.
