Catalogue No: UYAM-B2TC3-BP
Available to Order
B Series upright piano by Yamaha model B2 in black polyester with TC3 TransAcoustic System.
The 113cm B2 has much in common with the B1 sonically but is presented in a more traditional casing. Like the smaller model, the B2 is ideally suited to beginners or more casual players.
The TransAcoustic System promises all the benefits of a digital piano without needing the headphones, as well as a real acoustic instrument! Its silent function means that you can pop on the headphones for those late night practice sessions, or those considerate of neighbours.
An instrument which exhibits the most advanced Yamaha digital and timbre-balancing technology.
You can control the volume, mute, or play the numerous built-in sampled sounds out loud. This is achieved through transducers attached to the soundboard, it converts digital sound information into vibrations and delivers them to the soundboard. This in turn vibrates and joins the resonance of the strings to turn the entire piano into a resonator.
You may also use the piano as a speaker and enjoy listening to preset songs, recordings of your own performances and even music from your smartphone or other devices via Bluetooth. You can also play along with songs streamed from your devices, adding the piano part for ensemble performances. Both the external music and the sound of the piano pass through the soundboard and body of the piano, combining to create a rich resonance.
Yamaha have two different types of TransAcoustic systems that they use on their pianos. The TC Silent System is used on all of Yamaha's core and premium ranges of acoustic pianos.
In Silent mode it is a powerful digital piano, using Yamaha's latest binaural CFX sample, 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.

The Yamaha B2 is the second and middle model in the B series. In comparison to the B1, this is a slightly taller model lending a bigger soundboard and longer strings which instantly gives the piano a richer, warmer tone. It also features a solid spruce soundboard, which in comparison to the laminated soundboard on the B1, also enhances the overall timbre of the piano.
At 113cm in height, this piano is still amongst the more compact models, however with its improved action, it is a significant step up from the B1. This instrument is suitable for beginners up to a more advanced level.
