Yamaha GB1KSC2 Silent Piano
The GB1K offers Yamaha's uncompromising insistence on superb sound and resonance, available at a price suitable for smaller budgets. The SC2 Silent system offers the best of acoustic and digital - a piano that can be played either acoustically or silently through headphones!
By day it's a world-renowned acoustic piano. By night, the neighbors won't hear a thing. SILENT Piano puts the sound and presense of the world's finest concert grand in your headphones. Simply switch your Yamaha acoustic piano into SILENT mode and our digital technology reproduces the acoustic tones, nuanced colors and resonance so faithfully you'll almost forget you're wearing headphones.
Every nuance, every note
|Yamaha's patented non-contact Optical Sensor System continuously measures the movement, timing, depth and force of every key attack and release to faithfully capture and reproduce the subtle nuances of your performance.
Pure natural sound
|Three proprietary technologies work together to emulate the natural feeling and sound of an acoustic piano in your headphones. Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) recreates the resonance of the strings, soundboard and case. Our advanced binaural sampling method simulates the sound you hear when sitting at the piano. Smooth Release Technology models the subtle interactions of the piano strings with the damper.
Find your voice
|The world-renowned Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial concert grands are two of many digital voices available in your headphones including electric pianos, harpsichords, organs, strings, choir and synth pad.
Born to be silent
|Each Yamaha SILENT Piano is conceived, designed and built from the ground up, fashioned by Yamaha master craftsmen in the same factory using the same time-honored, traditional methods as our acoustic pianos.
