Description

A piano you can play any time you want, with the natural touch of an acoustic grand piano. The new Silent Piano™ from Yamaha, offering enhanced Silent functions and an even richer sound.

Silent functionality has been added to the GC2, a piano with a larger footprint and an affordable price, making it a very popular size instrument.

With a superb sound and excellent resonance, the GC2 is a delight to play. This is an SH-type Silent piano™ with a CFX sound source.

Realistic tonal colour for faithful reproduction

CFX Binaural Sampling

For the first time ever the Silent Piano™ offers sound sampled from the Yamaha CFX full concert grand piano, supporting the beauty of its clear, vivid tones with the power of this renowned instrument.

Yamaha’s first model with binaural sampling system, enabling reproduction of natural and three-dimensional sound.

Binaural sampling system

A recording system in which microphones are installed in the ears of a dummy (see diagram) so that the sound can be reproduced the way it is heard by the player.

When playing in “Silent” mode, the player feels as though the CFX sounds are coming directly from the piano.
