I bought a reconditioned Yamaha U3M from Mark Goodwin at Easter after visiting his Oldham showroom. I had a big choice of U3s and plenty of time to sit and play them all to my heart’s content while I tried to work out which one I preferred. Mark was very low-key and left me to it and didn’t try to influence my decision one way or the other. He was extremely helpful with suggestions about what to do with my antique Rogers upright for which I was most grateful. In the end his superb delivery team took it away and delivered to a buyer I’d found myself locally – for a reasonable price and very efficiently. My ‘new’ Yamaha U3 is wonderful to play on with a terrific tone, positive action and great volume. Everything I play sounds so much better, even without practice, although this U3 has inspired me to practice again and I’m even considering a few refresher lessons. My two sons have practised much more often and really enjoy the sound they can make on this instrument, even though they are only Grades 1 & 2. There is no better choice of U3s anywhere, and no keener prices either. Many thanks to Mark and his team.
