Silence without sacrifice.

By day it’s a world-renowned acoustic piano. By night, the neighbors won’t hear a thing. SILENT Piano™ puts the sound and presence of the world’s finest concert grands in your headphones. Simply switch your Yamaha acoustic piano into SILENT mode and our digital technology reproduces the acoustic tones, nuanced colors and resonance so faithfully you’ll almost forget you’re wearing headphones.



What is Silent Piano?

When the SILENT Piano™ function is activated, the hammers will no longer hit the strings and instead, a highly sophisticated sensor-technology captures all movements of the keys and sends them to the digital tone module. Play a real acoustic piano with headphones at any time, day or night without being disturbed or disturbing others. The Yamaha Silencing System is unsurpassed, allowing 24hr practice as well as possessing many other features including a range of pre-installed sounds, being able to record your own performances or connecting mobile devices to use the latest Apps.

Every Nuance, Every Note
Yamaha patented non-contact Optical Sensor System continuously measures the movement, timing, depth and force of every key attack and release to faithfully capture and reproduce the subtle nuances of your performance.

Pure, Natural Sound
Three proprietary technologies work together to emulate the natural feeling and sound of an acoustic piano in your headphones. Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) recreates the resonance of the strings, soundboard and case. Our advanced binaural sampling method simulates the sound you hear when sitting at the piano. Smooth Release Technology models the subtle interactions of the piano strings with the damper.

b Series :: b2

Yamaha’s b Series features pianos in a range of heights, widths, and depths. The b1 and b2 boast slender profiles, making them ideal for small spaces. With its larger dimensions and heavier construction, the b3 upright requires a little more room but brings a rich, far-reaching sound.
