A fine piano entices musicians to perform with spontaneity and passion, yet such unbridled expressiveness may not always be appropriate. Indeed, in certain environments, an acoustic piano can prove disruptive; the diligent tones of children practising scales are unlikely to be welcomed by other family members wishing to watch television, while even the most gentle, soothing chopin preludes have the potential to irritate neighbours if performed after an acceptable time. If you need the convenience of a digital piano for practice but you prefer the feel and sound of an acoustic instrument, a ‘Silent Piano’ from Forsyths may be the perfect solution. Many manufacturers have sought to combine the best features of both types into one instrument - a fully functional acoustic piano that is also digital and can be silenced for practice! Just plug in some headphones, press down a pedal and the piano is a fully working digital instrument.
“Silent Piano” is actually a trade mark of Yamaha Corporation and similar systems by other manufacturers are variously named “Anytime”, “Quietime, “AnytimeX”, “TwinTone” etc, etc. All of these brand names refer to the same concept and the vast majority of the acoustic pianos we sell can also be ordered in a silent version.
