Silent Pianos combine the best of Acoustic and Digital Pianos

The Yamaha Silent Piano lets you connect traditional tone, touch and elegance to the world of digital electronics. Perfect for those who need a real acoustic piano and also need to be able to practice without disturbing others or connect to recording/notation software.

The Silent Piano is a real acoustic piano that uses unique technology enabling it to be played silently whilst a digital version of the sound is delivered through headphones. When the silent function is activated, the hammers will no longer hit the strings and instead, highly sophisticated optical sensors capture all key and pedal movements, sending them to the digital tone module.

This means you can:

  • Practice any time without being interrupted or disturbing others
  • Play a range of pre-installed sounds
  • Record your performances
  • Connect to computer and mobile devices to access the latest Apps

All from a REAL acoustic piano!

The Yamaha Silent System is available on all Yamaha pianos and, depending on the model, comes in one of two variants, SC2 or the new SH2 System. Yamaha Silent Pianos are suited to a wide range of applications.

The silent practice facility makes them the ideal choice for home use, where individuals can play through headphones while others in the same room watch TV or listen to other music.

Additionally, thanks to its MIDI interface, Silent Pianos can easily connect to computers and other devices, opening up a world of recording and production opportunities as well as Apps to assist study.

And for stage use, the silent option offers an unbeatable combination of real piano touch and ultra high quality sampled grand piano sounds, which can be easily amplified.
