What we think of the Yamaha GC1 SH2 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.

When the new SH2 Silent System is activated 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 or Bosendorfer Imperial 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!

The Yamaha CFX sample has Yamaha's acclaimed Binaural Sampling giving an incredibly 'acoustic' sound through headphones, like the piano is in front of you rather than right in your ears. Virtual Resonance Modelling technology borrowed from Yamaha's Clavinova range of digital pianos brings an unprecedented level of natural resonance making the digital sound virtually indistinguishable from the real thing. 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!
