Yamaha Silent™ Pianos combine the best of Acoustic and Digital Pianos. Now, a new innovative instrument, TransAcoustic™ Piano is released, transforming the authentic reverberation and resonance unique to acoustic pianos, combined with the ability to adjust the volume of the instrument.

The Silent Piano technology enables the acoustic 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 offers 2 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!” This piano has the Yamaha CFS Concert grand sound sampling
