Yamaha C1x SH2 Silent Grand Piano; Polished Ebony Yamaha C1x SH2 Silent Grand Piano; Polished Ebony
Yamaha C1X SH2 Silent Piano The C1x is the most compact model of the CX series, at 5 foot 3 in depth. Many of this piano�s features are shared with the flagship CFX concert grand piano, including the hammers. Only the highest quality materials are used, and the finest craftsmanship � all in a practical size. < p>Why Buy a Silent Piano? The Yamaha C1X SH2 Silent Piano offers players the ability to play an acoustic instrument through headphones, using a highly sophisticated and realistic sensor-technology, which captures every movement of the keys and recreates them digitally in great detail. Yamaha�s Flagship CFX concert grand piano is recreated in awesome detail thanks to Yamaha�s Binaural sampling technology and Virtual Resonance Modelling - and with features such as Bluetooth Audio, a selection of pre-installed voices, and connectivity to mobile devices via Yamaha�s Smart Pianist App, you have all you could possibly need in one versatile instrument. See & Try The Yamaha Silent Piano System Before You Purchase You can see and try the Yamaha Silent Piano SH2 System in our piano shops which are located in Reigate (Surrey) and Eastbourne (East Sussex). We usually have a selection of pianos fitted with the SH2 silent system ready for you to try. Call us on 01737 242174 to check which models are currently on show. Part Exchange Your Piano For A New Yamaha C1X SH2 Silent Piano If you want to upgrade your existing instrument to a new Yamaha C1X SH2 silent piano, then please send details of what you have, including photos to partex@bonners.co.uk and we'll get right back to you with a part exchange valuation. We will need to know the make, model (if known) and serial number of your piano. We consider digital pianos, acoustic pianos, keyboards and even guitars in part exchange! Dimensions & Weight: Width 149cm Height 101cm Depth 161cm Weight: 290kg Two of the World�s Finest Concert Grand Pianos When in 'silent' mode, the Yamaha C1X SH2 defaults to Yamaha�s 9-foot Concert Grand Piano � bright, rich, and powerful. For a rich, warm sound with a beautiful sonorous bass, the press of a button takes you to the Bosendorfer Imperial Concert Grand Piano. All 88 keys have been sampled individually for the most accurate representation of these exquisite instruments. Sonic Palette � Stereophonic Optimizer There are 20 sounds pre-installed to the Yamaha C1X SH2, including a variety of electric pianos, strings, and organs. To make these voices feel and sound more authentic and natural, the stereophonic optimizer reproduces the natural sound distance, making you forget you are wearing headphones and preventing your ears from getting tired after a long practice session. Binaural Sampling The default CFX sound uses Binaural technology when wearing headphones. Specialised microphones placed in the player�s ears� position capture nuances and locational information usually only picked up by the human ear. You truly forget you are wearing headphones when playing with the CFX sound and can practice for much longer periods of time than with standard stereo headphone sampling. Virtual Resonance Modelling One thing many players miss the most when playing a digital instrument are the piano�s natural resonance. A grand piano has several areas where sound travels and reverberates, such as the solid spruce soundboard, and even the outer rims of the instrument. Each time you play an acoustic piano, a limitless amount of different resonances and overtones are captured. Yamaha have recreated this in the C1X SH2, thanks to their enhanced Virtual Resonance Modelling. Every element of the acoustic instrument is captured, from the timing of the keys being pressed, to the dampers lifting from the strings and the pedals being pressed. This is captured in great detail across all 88 keys. The result is an authentic and immersive playing experience, filled with expression. Unique Yamaha Technology To further enhance the realistic playing experience when using the C1X SH2 Silent features, Yamaha�s Smooth Release technology understands the way your finger releases the key, responding to smoother legato playing as well as shorter staccato notes. Key-off samples are actual recordings that capture the subtle changes as the finger is completely lifted away from the key, as the damper felt returns to rest on the string. Sensors under each key detect continuous movement, without affecting the feel of the piano. Infinite levels of expression are therefore possible, in the same way you would expect on a standard acoustic instrument. Similar non-contact Hammer sensors work in the same way to allow both slow and rapid keystrokes, and rapid trills that would not be possible on typical digital pianos. Yamaha�s Quick Escape System means that, when in silent mode, the hammers and strings are the ideal distance apart, so the quality of touch isn�t sacrificed as with other silent models. Bluetooth Audio If you want to play along to backing tracks or songs stored on your mobile device, you can now stream wirelessly via Bluetooth with the Yamaha C1X SH2 system when using headphones. Smart Pianist App Smart Pianist is Yamaha�s own free app, which enables the player to control functions such as selecting voices or editing the metronome settings, as well as playing along to scores displayed on the Smart Device. The UD-WL01 USB Wireless LAN Adaptor (sold separately) is required to use Smart Pianist over a wireless connection. Simple & Sophisticated Control Panel A sophisticated design and intuitive interface, the control panel blends with the piano�s cabinet. Available in white finish for polished white pianos. Connectivity USB to HOST � connect to a computer or portable device and record high-quality audio without need for an external interface. AUX OUT � play through external speakers / IC recorders AUX IN � listen from external devices such as sound source modules and music players MIDI OUT � transmit performance information to external devices ie synths MIDI IN � receive and playback information from sequencers using the SH2 Tone Generator Recording As well as being able to record directly to the built-in recorder on the piano, and listen back to your performance immediately, you can also record high quality audio to a USB memory stick (not included). The data will be stored as a WAV file, ready to play on a PC or burn to CD or portable music players. Headphones The headphones included with the Yamaha C1X SH2 are �open structured� � meaning they produce an excellent quality of sound, while also minimizing the strain that can be caused by long hours of headphone playing. Metronome The built-in metronome enables the player to practice and listen to precise rhythm while playing. This, along with other features, is accessed most easily via Yamaha�s Smart Pianist app. How does Yamaha SH2 silent system differ to the cheaper Yamaha SC2 Silent system? Yamaha�s SC2 Silent System is available on the B series upright pianos, as well as the GB1K baby grand piano. You will find the SH2 system on the higher quality P, U, YUS, and SE series uprights and the GC and CX series grand pianos. Features of the SH2 vs SC2: 20 pre-installed sounds (vs 10 on SC2 system) Hammer Sensors 480 voices + 12 drum/SFX kits for playback 10 song recordings (vs 1 on SC2) Transpose +/-12 semitones (vs +/-6 on SC2) Bluetooth Audio 1.3 MB internal memory (vs 500KB) MIDI IN/OUT AUX OUT 50 Classical Pieces Book

Part Exchange Your Piano For A New Yamaha C3X SH2 Silent Piano If you want to upgrade your existing instrument to a new Yamaha C3X SH2 silent piano, then please send details of what you have, including photos to partex@bonners.co.uk and we'll get right back to you with a part exchange valuation. We will need to know the make, model (if known) and serial number of your piano. We consider digital pianos, acoustic pianos, keyboards and even guitars in part exchange! Dimensions & Weight: Width 149cm Height 101cm Depth 186cm Weight: 320kg Two of the World�s Finest Concert Grand Pianos When in 'silent' mode, the Yamaha C3X SH2 defaults to Yamaha�s 9-foot Concert Grand Piano � bright, rich, and powerful. For a rich, warm sound with a beautiful sonorous bass, the press of a button takes you to the Bosendorfer Imperial Concert Grand Piano. All 88 keys have been sampled individually for the most accurate representation of these exquisite instruments. Sonic Palette � Stereophonic Optimizer There are 20 sounds pre-installed to the Yamaha C3X SH2, including a variety of electric pianos, strings, and organs. To make these voices feel and sound more authentic and natural, the stereophonic optimizer reproduces the natural sound distance, making you forget you are wearing headphones and preventing your ears from getting tired after a long practice session. Binaural Sampling The default CFX sound uses Binaural technology when wearing headphones. Specialised microphones placed in the player�s ears� position capture nuances and locational information usually only picked up by the human ear. You truly forget you are wearing headphones when playing with the CFX sound and can practice for much longer periods of time than with standard stereo headphone sampling. Virtual Resonance Modelling One thing many players miss the most when playing a digital instrument are the piano�s natural resonance. A grand piano has several areas where sound travels and reverberates, such as the solid spruce soundboard, and even the outer rims of the instrument. Each time you play an acoustic piano, a limitless amount of different resonances and overtones are captured. Yamaha have recreated this in the C3X SH2, thanks to their enhanced Virtual Resonance Modelling. Every element of the acoustic instrument is captured, from the timing of the keys being pressed, to the dampers lifting from the strings and the pedals being pressed. This is captured in great detail across all 88 keys. The result is an authentic and immersive playing experience, filled with expression. Unique Yamaha Technology To further enhance the realistic playing experience when using the C3X SH2 Silent features, Yamaha�s Smooth Release technology understands the way your finger releases the key, responding to smoother legato playing as well as shorter staccato notes. Key-off samples are actual recordings that capture the subtle changes as the finger is completely lifted away from the key, as the damper felt returns to rest on the string. Sensors under each key detect continuous movement, without affecting the feel of the piano. Infinite levels of expression are therefore possible, in the same way you would expect on a standard acoustic instrument. Similar non-contact Hammer sensors work in the same way to allow both slow and rapid keystrokes, and rapid trills that would not be possible on typical digital pianos. Yamaha�s Quick Escape System means that, when in silent mode, the hammers and strings are the ideal distance apart, so the quality of touch isn�t sacrificed as with other silent models. Bluetooth Audio If you want to play along to backing tracks or songs stored on your mobile device, you can now stream wirelessly via Bluetooth with the Yamaha C3X SH2 system when using headphones. Smart Pianist App Smart Pianist is Yamaha�s own free app, which enables the player to control functions such as selecting voices or editing the metronome settings, as well as playing along to scores displayed on the Smart Device. The UD-WL01 USB Wireless LAN Adaptor (sold separately) is required to use Smart Pianist over a wireless connection. Simple & Sophisticated Control Panel A sophisticated design and intuitive interface, the control panel blends with the piano�s cabinet. Available in white finish for polished white pianos. Connectivity USB to HOST � connect to a computer or portable device and record high-quality audio without need for an external interface. AUX OUT � play through external speakers / IC recorders AUX IN � listen from external devices such as sound source modules and music players MIDI OUT � transmit performance information to external devices ie synths MIDI IN � receive and playback information from sequencers using the SH2 Tone Generator Recording As well as being able to record directly to the built-in recorder on the piano, and listen back to your performance immediately, you can also record high quality audio to a USB memory stick (not included). The data will be stored as a WAV file, ready to play on a PC or burn to CD or portable music players. Headphones The headphones included with the Yamaha C3X SH2 are �open structured� � meaning they produce an excellent quality of sound, while also minimizing the strain that can be caused by long hours of headphone playing. Metronome The built-in metronome enables the player to practice and listen to precise rhythm while playing. This, along with other features, is accessed most easily via Yamaha�s Smart Pianist app. How does Yamaha SH2 silent system differ to the cheaper Yamaha SC2 Silent system? Yamaha�s SC2 Silent System is available on the B series upright pianos, as well as the GB1K baby grand piano. You will find the SH2 system on the higher quality P, U, YUS, and SE series uprights and the GC and CX series grand pianos. Features of the SH2 vs SC2: 20 pre-installed sounds (vs 10 on SC2 system) Hammer Sensors 480 voices + 12 drum/SFX kits for playback 10 song recordings (vs 1 on SC2) Transpose +/-12 semitones (vs +/-6 on SC2) Bluetooth Audio 1.3 MB internal memory (vs 500KB) MIDI IN/OUT AUX OUT 50 Classical Pieces Book

Dimensions & Weight Width 146cm Height 99cm Depth 151cm Weight: 265kg (581lb) Why Buy A Silent Piano Instead Of A 'Normal' Piano? The Yamaha GB1K SC2 Silent piano is exactly the same as its standard acoustic counterpart, but with the convenience of digital technology when you need it. The touch, feel and response is the same as a normal acoustic piano when in standard acoustic mode. When you play using headphones, the hammers are prevented from hitting the strings and the digital sound is activated which the player can hear using headphones. Silent Pianos were first launched by Yamaha in 1993 and the digital technology and key sensors have been constantly improved. The latest SC2 models feature the digital sound of two concert grand pianos, use grayscale technology to maintain keyboard feel, and are compatible with mobile devices and the latest music making Apps. Play The Sound Of Two World-Class Concert Grands The Yamaha GB1K SC2 Silent Piano System features the voices of both Yamaha CFX and Bosendorfer Imperial Concert Grand pianos. Each of the 88 keys of these two distinctly different instruments has been recorded (sampled) individually. When using headphones, the player will experience playing each of these grand pianos with the very best clarity and response possible. The CFX is a bold, bright piano, ideal for popular, jazz and light classics, whilst the Bosendorfer Imperial has a more 'European' rounded, mellow voice and is ideal for delicate classics or a full blown concert performance. Other Instrument Voices The Yamaha GB1K SC2 silent piano features a total of 10 instrument voices including electric pianos, harpsichords, organs, strings choir and synth pad. These are all useful voices for the modern musician and allows you to find the perfect voice for your style of performance. The Touch Of A Standard Acoustic Piano The Yamaha GB1K SC2 SIlent piano uses an exclusive continuous-detection grayscale shutter key sensor. These are fitted under every one of the 88 keys to detect movement, and these sensors do not actually touch the keys, to the player will not feel any discernible difference between a standard acoustic piano and a Yamaha silent piano. Enhanced headphone output with Binaural sampling (CFX voice only) The CFX piano sound uses bi-naural sampling technology when played through headphones - this gives a surround sound type experience when using standard hifi headphones. Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) When using the Yamaha GB1K SC2 piano in 'silent' mode, Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) calculates the string and damper resonance in realtime to give the most authentic, life-like playing experience even when using headphones. Smart Pianist App Yamaha's Smart Pianist App is a free download which allows you to access popular functions such as voice selection, metronome settings, or even display musical scores using your smart devices such as tablets & smartphones. The UD-WL01 Wireless Lan adaptor (sold separately) is required to connect Smart Pianist over a wireless network. Simplistic Control Panel Design In order to maintain the traditional look of a beautiful acoustic piano, the control panel on the Yamaha GB1K SC2 silent piano is simple and unobtrusive. Operation of the silent system is user-friendly. USB to HOST with Audio Streaming The Yamaha GB1K SC2 silent piano is fitted with a USB to HOST socket which allows you to record high quality audio to an external computer or other device without needing an additional USB audio interface. AUX In Connection The AUX IN Connection on the Yamaha GB1K SC2 silent piano enables you to listen to or play along with the sound from external audio devices such as smartphone, computers or tablets. Built-In Recording Feature The built-in song recorder is can be used to capture your performance or as a useful tool for practicing difficult pieces. One song can be saved to the internal memory of the piano, but this capacity can be increased by plugging in a commercially available USB memory stick so that the total number of saved songs is virtually limitless. Metronome There is a built-in metronome that can be used with headphones for practice purposes. Included Accessories AC adaptor*, power cord*, headphones, headphone hanger, attachment screws for headphone hanger, Owner's Manual Optional Accessories USB wireless LAN adaptor (UD-WL01), wireless MIDI adaptor (UD-BT01) Why Buy A Silent Piano Instead Of A Digital Piano? Modern digital pianos have advanced tremendously in recent times, but nothing beats the keyboard response of a true acoustic piano. A silent piano offers a true acoustic piano experience, with a digital sound available for when you need it. The difference is that when playing using the digital sound, you have the same keyboard feel & touch as an acoustic piano. Only higher priced hybrid digital pianos offer a similar keyboard performance to that of a Silent Piano. If you are looking at purchasing a high-end digital piano, then we would recommend that you also consider a silent acoustic piano.

The Yamaha P121 SH2 Silent Piano offers players the ability to play an acoustic instrument through headphones, using a highly sophisticated and realistic sensor-technology, which captures every movement of the keys and recreates them digitally in great detail. Yamaha�s Flagship CFX concert grand piano is recreated in awesome detail thanks to Yamaha�s Binaural sampling technology and Virtual Resonance Modelling - and with features such as Bluetooth Audio, a selection of pre-installed voices, and connectivity to mobile devices via Yamaha�s Smart Pianist App, you have all you could possibly need in one versatile instrument. See & Try The Yamaha Silent Piano System Before You Purchase You can see and try the Yamaha Silent Piano SH2 System in our piano shops which are located in Reigate (Surrey) and Eastbourne (East Sussex). We usually have a selection of pianos fitted with the SH2 silent system ready for you to try. Call us on 01737 242174 to check which models are currently on show. Part Exchange Your Piano For A New Yamaha P121 SH2 Silent Piano If you want to upgrade your existing instrument to a new Yamaha P121 SH2 silent piano, then please send details of what you have, including photos to partex@bonners.co.uk and we'll get right back to you with a part exchange valuation. We will need to know the make, model (if known) and serial number of your piano. We consider digital pianos, acoustic pianos, keyboards and even guitars in part exchange! Dimensions & Weight: Width 154cm Height 121cm Depth 62cm Weight: 234kg(516lbs) Two of the World�s Finest Concert Grand Pianos When in 'silent' mode, the Yamaha P121 SH2 defaults to Yamaha�s 9-foot Concert Grand Piano � bright, rich, and powerful. For a rich, warm sound with a beautiful sonorous bass, the press of a button takes you to the Bosendorfer Imperial Concert Grand Piano. All 88 keys have been sampled individually for the most accurate representation of these exquisite instruments. Sonic Palette � Stereophonic Optimizer There are 20 sounds pre-installed to the Yamaha P121 SH2, including a variety of electric pianos, strings, and organs. To make these voices feel and sound more authentic and natural, the stereophonic optimizer reproduces the natural sound distance, making you forget you are wearing headphones and preventing your ears from getting tired after a long practice session. Binaural Sampling The default CFX sound uses Binaural technology when wearing headphones. Specialised microphones placed in the player�s ears� position capture nuances and locational information usually only picked up by the human ear. You truly forget you are wearing headphones when playing with the CFX sound and can practice for much longer periods of time than with standard stereo headphone sampling. Virtual Resonance Modelling One thing many players miss the most when playing a digital instrument are the piano�s natural resonance. A grand piano has several areas where sound travels and reverberates, such as the solid spruce soundboard, and even the outer rims of the instrument. Each time you play an acoustic piano, a limitless amount of different resonances and overtones are captured. Yamaha have recreated this in the P121 SH2, thanks to their enhanced Virtual Resonance Modelling. Every element of the acoustic instrument is captured, from the timing of the keys being pressed, to the dampers lifting from the strings and the pedals being pressed. This is captured in great detail across all 88 keys. The result is an authentic and immersive playing experience, filled with expression. Unique Yamaha Technology To further enhance the realistic playing experience when using the P121 SH2 Silent features, Yamaha�s Smooth Release technology understands the way your finger releases the key, responding to smoother legato playing as well as shorter staccato notes. Key-off samples are actual recordings that capture the subtle changes as the finger is completely lifted away from the key, as the damper felt returns to rest on the string. Sensors under each key detect continuous movement, without affecting the feel of the piano. Infinite levels of expression are therefore possible, in the same way you would expect on a standard acoustic instrument. Similar non-contact Hammer sensors work in the same way to allow both slow and rapid keystrokes, and rapid trills that would not be possible on typical digital pianos. Yamaha�s Quick Escape System means that, when in silent mode, the hammers and strings are the ideal distance apart, so the quality of touch isn�t sacrificed as with other silent models. Bluetooth Audio If you want to play along to backing tracks or songs stored on your mobile device, you can now stream wirelessly via Bluetooth with the Yamaha P121 SH2 system when using headphones. Smart Pianist App Smart Pianist is Yamaha�s own free app, which enables the player to control functions such as selecting voices or editing the metronome settings, as well as playing along to scores displayed on the Smart Device. The UD-WL01 USB Wireless LAN Adaptor (sold separately) is required to use Smart Pianist over a wireless connection. Simple & Sophisticated Control Panel A sophisticated design and intuitive interface, the control panel blends with the piano�s cabinet. Available in white finish for polished white pianos. Connectivity USB to HOST � connect to a computer or portable device and record high-quality audio without need for an external interface. AUX OUT � play through external speakers / IC recorders AUX IN � listen from external devices such as sound source modules and music players MIDI OUT � transmit performance information to external devices ie synths MIDI IN � receive and playback information from sequencers using the SH2 Tone Generator Recording As well as being able to record directly to the built-in recorder on the piano, and listen back to your performance immediately, you can also record high quality audio to a USB memory stick (not included). The data will be stored as a WAV file, ready to play on a PC or burn to CD or portable music players. Headphones The headphones included with the Yamaha P121 SH2 are �open structured� � meaning they produce an excellent quality of sound, while also minimizing the strain that can be caused by long hours of headphone playing. Metronome The built-in metronome enables the player to practice and listen to precise rhythm while playing. This, along with other features, is accessed most easily via Yamaha�s Smart Pianist app. How does Yamaha SH2 silent system differ to the cheaper Yamaha SC2 Silent system? Yamaha�s SC2 Silent System is available on the B series upright pianos, as well as the GB1K baby grand piano. You will find the SH2 system on the higher quality P, U, YUS, and SE series uprights and the GC and CX series grand pianos.
