Why Buy From Mickleburgh?


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.

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.

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.


Yamaha Silent Piano features a range of unique technologies that allow them to offer a touch that is astonishingly close to that of an acoustic grand piano even when in Silent mode.

Features of the SC3 Pianos:

  • Key Sensors:– Under each of the 88 keys is a Yamaha-unique continuous-detection grey-scale shutter key sensor. These sensors detect the movement of the keys continually, allowing natural musical expression even when the piano is in Silent mode. Since they do not come into contact with the keys, these sensors do not affect the feel of the keyboard in any way.
  • The SC3 Silent Piano delivers voices of CFX, Yamaha’s finest concert grand piano, and Bosendorfer’s legendary Imperial all 88 keys have been sampled individually.
  • Yamaha’s advanced binaural sampling technology uses samples from Yamaha’s CFX concert grand piano, recorded with specialized microphones that capture locational information and other nuances discerned by the human ear.

Excellent piano repair service
Read More
My piano needed a repair to the polyester finish which I was very unsure about but Andy from the repair workshop was so friendly and helpful. The quality of the finish is perfect and I couldn’t be happier. The piano was collected from my home in Devon, repaired and delivered back to me in a very quick turn around time.
