A beautiful Yamaha acoustic piano, perfect for the advancing pianist, and fitted with Yamaha's SC2 Silent system allowing silent practice through headphones. Activate the silent mode and a rail moves between the hammers and the strings to 'switch off' the acoustic piano. Highly sophisticated optical sensor technology then captures the detailed movements of each key and you can hear the beautiful sound of a Yamaha CFX concert grand piano through your headphones - play a real acoustic piano with headphones at any time, day or night without being disturbed or disturbing others! Not only is the piano sound amazing, there are also 9 other instrument sounds, including grand and electric pianos, strings, organ and harpsichord. For the first time on a Silent piano, the same Virtual Resonance Modelling technology, as found on the popular Clavinova digital piano range, is used to make the piano sound more authentic through headphones than ever before. This captures and reproduces the resonance produced by the frame, rim and strings of an acoustic piano and brings the sound of the fabulous Yamaha CFX concert grand piano to life.

With fantastic build and component quality, the B2ESC2 is made in Yamaha's Indonesian piano factory which is among the most modern and advanced in the world. Owned and operated by Yamaha, the result is high quality control from start to finish!

What we think of the Yamaha B2E silent upright piano

The B2E silent piano is a very worthwhile upgrade from the B1 silent piano. The silent system is identical, but thanks to the piano's taller cabinet and solid spruce soundboard the tone is richer and more resonant. It also benefits from an attractive, more traditionally styled casework which makes for a lovely addition to any room.
