This is an old piano Yamaha U3 brought about 2.3k Singapore dollars, not quite sure is it made on japan as it does not have made in japan wording but got Nippon Gakki word in it which means Japanese musical instrument. I look at the serial number seems like almost 50 years old but when the tuner come and does the tuning first time it said is about 30 to 40 years old at most. It was buy from the second hand piano shop so included delivery two free tuning and 3 year warranty. It is delivered in my house since 14 Feb 2015 valentine day did not find any problem in it till now playing on it. At first time when I see it and before that on the phone I enquired that why U3 was selling much cheaper than U1 due to the piano was repaint so can look quite ugly, but the part are working condition and the sound are better than U1 that he told me. So I go down to take a look, going to take small upright piano M108 selling 2K over 20 years old but after a few days taking this one instead to go to shop change order place extra deposit.
My digital piano Roland F130R was sold at 1K and given away the bench cost S$52 since I did not use it and kept it can be occupy space in my house so given together to him so he can use it. I buy this digital piano at 1.8K excluding bench and usb camera lighting cable for iPad cost S$42. So in total I loss at least S$800 brought in using for 3 months since Nov 2014. I recently change teacher and she told me better soon buy an upright as digital not really can be used for my level of playing but still can slowly used for a few months to buy a good very old used yamaha U1. It should be enough no need buy new or even more expensive European brand piano as I just her exam fee S$260 ABRSM Grade 4 piano practical in July to Sep this year by then once exam over I should be changing already.
Compare to last time petrof P131 upright, this piano key bed is lower comfortable to play no need to adjust chair to very high, less nosier playing over an hour does not feel the head so dizzy as petrof which I brought new 14K in Feb 14 the tuner had tuned the piano very bright above 440Hz concert pitch causing too much noise too bright. I play feeling dizzy then second tuning was tuned down a bit after 6 months but I gave up and also owned too much credit card debt to banks.
