What we think of the new Yamaha C5XSH silent grand piano
The C5 has always been an excellent smaller concert instrument. With the latest update the piano has become a much cleaner, resonant sounding piano. A really significant upgrade to the C3X, the C5X is a full 6'' larger which makes a huge different to the soundboard area as well as string length. With the new upgraded string material and improved soundboard design the C5X is a wonderful larger domestic piano or smaller concert instrument. The new SH silent system provides all the realism that you could need from such a piano when practicing silently and makes the C5 a very versatile instrument indeed.
You can 'Switch off' the acoustic piano and turn it into a digital instrument by activating the silent system, which moves the hammer stop rail between the hammers and the strings. Highly sophisticated optical sensor technology then captures the detailed movements of each key and you can hear the beautiful sound of a Yamaha CFX concert grand piano through your headphones - play a real acoustic piano with headphones at any time, day or night without being disturbed or disturbing others! To make this new piano sample even more unique, Yamaha have sampled a CFX concert grand from the perspective of the player, not the audience, so you hear the sound as if you sat at the keyboard. Not only is the piano sound amazing, there are also 18 other instrument sounds, including grand and electric pianos, strings, organ and harpsichord. You can also play along with MIDI files, and use the USB audio recorder to record your performances as a CD ready file to your USB memory stick. Alternatively, using the iPad Piano Diary app you can upload your performances straight to YouTube or other social media sites. The possibilities are endless!
