Undercutting lesser competitors while retaining Yamaha's high standards, the b1 offers the joy of Yamaha ownership at a price that will astonish and delight.

Small Space, Big Sound

The b Series takes its inspiration from the popular U-series 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.

Back Posts, Forward Thinking

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

Advanced V-Pro Frame

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 our exacting specifications at our Iwata Forge in Japan.

Specially Designed Hammers

b Series hammers are crafted of the finest materials and painstakingly designed for each model to provide optimum tone, response and a lifetime of musical enjoyment.

Hand-wound Bass Strings

Yamaha artisans in our 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.

The World's First Aluminum Action Rail

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