An upright for the next generation

Yamaha took everything 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.

Yamaha b2 acoustic piano in home environment

Yamaha’s b Series features pianos in a range of heights, widths, and depths. The b1 and b2 boast slender profiles, making them ideal for small spaces. With its larger dimensions and heavier construction, the b3 upright requires a little more room but brings a rich, far-reaching sound.

Affordable Quality
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.

Quality Components, Quality Sound
Supported by four sturdy wooden back posts and a strong cast iron frame, b Series pianos are endowed with Yamaha’s renowned pure, clear tone. High-grade hammers and a proven action design offer effortless playing and a highly responsive keyboard ‘touch’ that make these uprights ideal for beginning players.

Small space, BIG sound
The b Series takes its inspiration from our 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.

Yamaha B-Series Back Posts Close Detail

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.

Yamaha B-Series Soundboard Close Detail

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.
