Yamaha GB1K Silent Grand Piano
from £509.85 monthly
The GB1K is Yamaha's most affordable Grand Piano, and at just under 5 feet in length, can fit into smaller halls and music rooms with ease.
The Yamaha GB1 Silent Piano is a Baby Grand Piano with a difference. Along with all the incredible capabilities of an Yamaha Acoustic Baby Grand, the GB1 SG2 offers the ability to plug in headphones, play, record and playback to your hearts content, without disturbing others.
Yamaha’s GB1 SG2 has some amazing features at an even more unbelievable price. As an Acoustic Piano, the GB1 SG2 has an incredibly broad dynamic range, taking it’s cue from the renowned C series, but utilising some of the cost saving advantages and refinements in materials and production.
Despite being only 5 feet in length, you’ll find the instrument has a sparking top end, combined with a deep and warm low end for a Piano of this size. This is without a doubt the best value Grand Piano on the market.
Once you activate the silent system, a whole new world opens up. With a stunningly realistic CFX Binaural Sampling system, once the headphones are on you'd think you were on stage with a CFX Grand Piano. The new Silent system has a 256 note polyphony, and large memory capacity.
To accurately reproduce the sound of an Acoustic Piano digitally, the Yamaha GB1 Silent Piano focuses on four areas:
- String Resonance - When a hammer strikes a string, the surrounding strings resonate slightly, Yamaha's Silent system reproduces this same effect
- Key-off sampling - the sounds produced as a damper touches a string is emulated
- Sustain sampling - when you depress the sustain pedal, all strings are free to resonate, adding to the overall sound
- Damper resonance - the damper pedal also affects the tonal colour of the music being played
Although each of these is almost imperceivable, when combined the overall effect is mind-blowing.
In addition, the Silent System also adds several useful features.
- Metronome - practice your pieces and scales using a metronome to build up your speed and playing accuracy.
- 19 Voices - you don't have to limit yourself to the Piano, you can also choose from harpsichord, organ, strings, celesta and more.
- Built in recording - whether you're playing acoustically or digitally, the GB1 SG2 can record a digital copy of your playing, so you can recording backing tracks, separate left and right hands, performances or rehearsals to listen back to.
- MIDI connectivity - input and output terminals to connect to any compatible MIDI device or computer.
- Auxiliary input and output - plug in your mp3 player and play along, or output to an audio recording or another speaker system.
