Piano is so much more than a musical instrument. It becomes part of your life and, well chosen, will be with you for life. Yamaha have been making pianos for over a century but the new b-Series is something of a departure for us. A hundred years of accumulated knowledge has been condensed into our most affordable piano ever. No corners have been cut. No compromises made in materials or workmanship. We simply set out to design a fully featured Yamaha piano but at a lower price. And we succeeded. The b-Series, like all Yamaha pianos, are instruments of extraordinary, natural beauty, combining art, craftsmanship and technology; a joy to play and own. Exemplifying Yamaha's well-established design principles, the b1 redefines the word value. Whilst retaining Yamaha standards in every way, b1 offers the joy of Yamaha ownership at a price that will astonish and delight.
