Why Choose a Silent Piano?
There will be times at home when the deep resonant sound of an acoustic piano is not always appreciated. You might find you are disturbing a neighbour or family member or just simply worried about being listened to as you practice a new piece of music. This is where a silent piano is the perfect instrument to choose. Firstly you have the beautiful sound and touch of a real acoustic piano to enjoy when you can. Then simply plug in a set of headphones and switch to silent mode and you can keep on playing, listening to a beautiful top of the range digital piano sample. Early mornings, late nights or family watching TV all become a thing of the past with the ability to practice in silence. This is without doubt the best of both worlds.
Here is how it all works
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. They don't affect the feel of the keyboard in any way as they don't come into contact with the keys.
