What is a Silent Piano™?
Silent Pianos™ combine the best of Acoustic and Digital Pianos.
Our prime goal is to ensure that we provide a beautiful acoustic piano, built with the knowledge and skills of over 100 years Yamaha piano history.
Then we add our market leading Silent Piano™ technology to enable the piano to be played silently using headphones.
When the silent function is activated, the hammers will no longer hit the strings and instead, a highly sophisticated sensor-technology captures all movements of the keys and sends them to the digital tone module. Play a real acoustic piano with headphones at any time, day or night without being disturbed or disturbing others. The Yamaha Silent System is unsurpassed, allowing 24hr practice as well as possessing many other features including a range of pre-installed sounds, being able to record your own performances or connecting mobile devices to use the latest Apps.
Yamaha, the world’s leading provider of sound muting technology offers two Silent Piano systems in the range, each with different levels of operation and quality of sound available when in silent mode.
“The SH silent system provides a truly unbelievable quality of piano sound. It’s that good you may even find yourself removing the headphones just to make sure you’re in “silent” mode!”
TransAcoustic™ is the name we have given to a new breed of piano. At its most basic level, it turns the soundboard into a “loudspeaker.” This means that any sound can be delivered through this naturally resonant piano component.
Because the instrument is a real, fully strung and resonant piano, the natural, sympathetic vibrations of the soundboard, case and, significantly, strings, add a completely new dimension to performance. The sampled sounds come to life with a brilliant realism no other instrument has approached.
An acoustic piano with volume control, or a digital piano with strings? Yamaha’s latest development stretches the imagination and opens up a whole new world of possibilities.
