'Silent' Piano Systems
If you want an acoustic piano but don't want to disturb your neighbours, or just want the ability to practice in absolute privacy, then you need a silent piano system. Each manufacturer has a different name for these - Yamaha is 'Silent', Kawai 'Anytime, Schimmel 'TwinTone', Bechstein 'Vario' etc.
Most of the new pianos we stock can be ordered with a silent system, though the exact system available depends on the make and model of piano you choose. The items below describe the different systems and the makes and models of piano on which they are available. PLEASE NOTE, the Yamaha and Kawai systems cannot be retrofitted to a piano however the Schimmel TwinTone system (introduced in 2020) and the Bechstein Vario can both be retro fitted to their pianos by acccredited fitters such as Forsyths. These systems are specifically designed to work best with thier own make of pianos. The PianoDisc generic systems, can be retro-fitted to most existing pianos, however the compromise on the pianos regulations and therefore control in normal 'acoustic mode' is often too much for most pianists.
Please call in or phone to discuss these 'silent systems' further and we can help and advise the best solution.
