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 of 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 24-hour 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 new Silent Piano systems, 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!"
t's genuinely a different experience playing the Yamaha Silent piano - put the headphones on and instead of feeling like the sound is being pumped into your ears it feels so natural, like the sound is dancing around you.— Jamie Cullum
