The GB1 silent piano combines the quality and affordability of the standard GB1 with the versatility of the SG silent system. 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 the very latest Yamaha CFX and Bosendorfer Imperial concert grand pianos through your headphones - play a real acoustic piano with headphones at any time, day or night without being disturbed or disturbing others!
The Yamaha CFX sample has Yamaha's acclaimed Binaural Sampling giving an incredibly 'acoustic' sound through headphones, like the piano is in front of you rather than right in your ears. Virtual Resonance Modelling technology borrowed from Yamaha's Clavinova range of digital pianos brings an unprecedented level of natural resonance making the digital sound virtually indistinguishable from the real thing.
Not only is the piano sound amazing, there are also 9 other instrument sounds, including grand and electric pianos, strings, organ and harpsichord.
With fantastic build and component quality, the GB1 Silent 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! SpecificationSC2 Silent System:
