The Yamaha B3 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 B3 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 B3 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 B3 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 B3 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.

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.
