Introducing the Yamaha GB1K SC2 Silent Grand Piano

The GB1K baby grand piano is the most compact of the Yamaha grand piano range but it does offer a surprising depth of tone, clarity and overall projection. Its compact dimensions make it perfect for the smaller space yet still a worthwhile alternative to a large U series upright

With its design based on that of the coveted C Series it has the inherent quality that Yamaha grand pianos are renowned for, and is a great value way of having your very own grand piano.

With Yamaha's SC2 Silent system it becomes a superb blend of acoustic and digital technology, allowing the piano to not only be played acoustically but also with headphones, making it completely silent to everyone but the pianist!

Practice in complete silence!

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 captures the precise movement of each key and you can hear the beautiful sound of a Yamaha CFX concert grand through your headphones.

SC2 Silent system

Select from a pallet of 10 high quality instrument voices to suit your musical genre. SC2 also features a metronome, 1 track record facility and USB to HOST, all of which can be controlled via the sleek and intuitive control panel

Binaural Sampling

The sound of the Yamaha CFX concert grand has been captured from the perspective of the pianist to create a truly spacial and immersive sound. The piano sounds like it is in front of you rather than in your ears, which also reduces fatigue and enables you to practice for longer!

Virtual Resonance Modelling technology

Virtual Resonance Modelling technology 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.

Download the Smart Pianist app

Smart Pianist connects your iOS or Android device to the piano, either via USB or via the optional UD-WL01 wireless LAN adaptor to remotely control the instrument's sounds, control the record facility and metronome and even display music notation on screen. The app will also scan your iTunes library and produce a basic score so you can learn to play your favourite songs!

Installation at the Yamaha factory

Unlike most silent systems, Yamaha's SC2 and SH2 Silent systems are installed during the manufacturing process. Yamaha piano actions are designed to accomodate Silent systems, so you can be sure of the highest quality performance and reliability. Nothing has been compromised!
