U series upright piano by Yamaha U3SH2 finished in black polyester
This Yamaha U3 has the SH2 silent system built in which allows for silent practice with Yamaha's top of the range sound module.
From the Manufacturer:
Yamaha U Series upright pianos have long been a leading choice for educational institutions, professional musicians and discriminating home pianists. Now, thanks to comprehensive redesign (including developments in scale design, soundboard support and hammer materials) these world-standard instruments are better than ever. Refined scale designs and components improve tonal performance, while other modifications enhance strength and durability.
In acoustic mode, this feels and sounds like any other U3S with all the benefits of a digital.
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 fingertips.
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 has two different types of silent system that they use on their pianos. The SH2 Silent System is used on all of Yamaha's core and premium ranges of acoustic pianos.
SH Silent System features:
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.
