Introducing the Yamaha YUS3 TA2 TransAcoustic Upright Piano
Crafted at Yamaha's concert grand facility, the YUS3 is built on the same 131cm frame as the U3, yet is on a whole new level of refinement. It is semi-handcrafted with hammers from the flagship SU7 and hand-spun bass strings, while the extra leverage from taller capstans within the action than the YUS1 makes it significantly more responsive.
Silent pianos have been around for many years, but wearing headphones to practice the piano quietly or privately is not always convenient. Sometimes there may be a teacher or a duet partner to consider, or a parent wishing to make sure that their child is doing their piano practice!
First and foremost an acoustic piano, a TransAcoustic piano is a versatile tool which combines the best features of a digital piano with the inimitable resonance and feel of an acoustic instrument.
Specially positioned transducers transform the piano's soundboard into a natural loudspeaker, meaning you can practice at a lower volume without wearing headphones.Dominic Barnett – Chamberlain Pianos
