Silent PianosThe Yamaha Silent Piano lets you connect traditional tone, touch and elegance to the world of digital electronics. Perfect for those who need a real acoustic piano and also need to be able to practice without disturbing others. The Silent Piano is an acoustic piano with sound-damping capabilities. When the silent function is not engaged, the piano sounds and feels exactly as its non-silent counterpart. However, when the silent function has been activated and a key is struck, the hammer is stopped from striking the string. Optical sensors capture every nuance of play and relay them to a tone generator, which sends a sample of an acoustic piano sound to the headphones. There are two variations of the silent system: the Simple Type, which is found on JU109, JX113, U1J and GB1K; and the SG Type which is found on the YUS1. The Simple Type is, as the name suggests, very simple to operate offering a high quality reproduction of a grand piano sound played through the headphones when the silent function is engaged. The SG Type adds a range of additional sounds and features. Simple Type Stereo samples from the Yamaha S6 premium grand piano 2 headphone sockets Adjustable reverb level SG Type Stereo samples from the Yamaha CFIIIS concert grand piano 10 voices including harpsichord, pipe organ and strings Recording and playback function USB port to import MIDI files from USB memory device 50 demo songs pre-installed 2 headphone sockets Adjustable reverb level

Why Choose a New Yamaha Piano?Although often a cheaper alternative, there are some key factors to keep in mind when considering a new or second-hand Yamaha piano. Firstly, pianos are at their best when they are brand new. They take a short while and several tunings to settle into their new homes, but once they have settled they perform at their peak. If treated well and serviced regularly, your new Yamaha piano will last for generations, although the best period of its life will be the first 10 to 20 years. All new Yamaha pianos are seasoned to the highest standard during production, which is a process of reducing moisture content in the woods used. Pianos with very low moisture content are more able to withstand the varied temperature and humidity in Australia. Many second-hand Yamaha pianos offered for sale in Australia are imported from Asia as used pianos. Most of these imported pianos were not built for Australian conditions and, more importantly, there is generally no way of knowing the history of these pianos. A moderately-played piano that is serviced regularly will perform very differently after 20 to 30 years from a piano that has been played 8 hours a day in a music school and not serviced regularly.

A Yamaha piano has over 5,500 fine parts

As you would approach buying a used car with very high kilometres with caution, you should exercise the same caution when considering a second-hand piano. A check of a piano serial number will tell you when the piano was built. It is difficult to determine how much use a pian
