What we think of the Yamaha U3 silent upright piano
Part of the revered Yamaha U series, the Yamaha U3 is an industry standard practice and performance upright piano, and the instrument of choice for beginners, students and professionals alike. Examples of all ages, from the old U3H and U3M to the new U3S can be found in the practice rooms of many of the most prestigious conservatoires, music colleges and performance venues across the world. Adding the new SH silent system builds on this further and the result is an extremely versatile instrument. 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!
