What we think of the Yamaha GC1 Silent grand piano

In its standard acoustic form the Yamaha GC1M is a very worthwhile upgrade from the smaller and cheaper GB1 thanks to its larger frame, duplex scaling and Japanese construction. Add the recently developed SH silent system and the already impressive GC1M becomes a very versatile instrument offering such additional features as USB audio recording and iPad compatability. Activate the silent mode and a rail moves between the hammers and the strings to 'switch off' the acoustic piano. 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! 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!
