In acoustic mode this feels and sounds like any other P121 with all the benefits of a digital. The P121, similar in size and calibre to the U1, has been designed in Europe for those who are seeking that type of rich and expressive tone. 

In Silent mode it is a powerful digital piano, using Yamaha's latest binaural CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial samples, with all the benefits of having a real piano action at your finger tips.

The most common question regarding the silent piano is "is this a digital piano?".

Our range of silent pianos are all completely acoustic instruments; meaning that hammers are still striking strings to produce a sound and therefore have the benefit of playing a real acoustic piano, however they also have a digital component that simply allow players the option to switch to a digital sound for "silent playing" via headphones.

Yamaha have two different types of silent system that they use on their pianos. The SH Silent System is used on all of Yamaha's core and premium ranges of acoustic pianos.

SH Silent System features:

  • Binarual sampling of full size concert grand piano by Yamaha model CFX allows for a more three-dimensional experience
  • Different types of piano effects to emulate a real acoustic piano such as string resonance, sustain, damper resonance and
  • 25 sampled sounds which include - Piano, Electric piano 1 and 2, Harpsichord, Vibraphone, Celesta, Pipe Organ, Jazz Organ, Strings and Choir
  • 50 Demo songs
  • Built-in recording and playback functions

  • 256MB Wave ROM
  • Downloadable Apps are available to connect your piano to your iPad
  • Front control panel for ease of use
  • USB

What's the difference between the 'SH2' and the new 'SH3'?

Yamaha's previous silent system the SH2 uses non contact sensors, SH3 now uses magnetic resistance, this improves the pianos responsiveness and dynamic accuracy.

All Yamaha pianos are available in different wood finishes, have the option for chrome or brass fittings and also the option to have the silent system. Please enquire in store for more details.
