Information and specifications
|Type:||Silent acoustic piano
The Yamaha U1 SH2 is an acoustic upright piano, equipped with a silent acoustic system, more specifically the SH2 Silent System by Yamaha.
Thanks to comprehensive redesign, these world-standard instruments are better than ever, with numerous advances in materials and construction. Refined scale designs and components improve tonal performance, while other modifications enhance strength and durability. Extra-wide music desks provide plenty of room for sheet music. And the top-of-the-line sets extraordinary standards of elegance and excellence, incorporating concepts adapted from Yamaha grand pianos.
A perennial favorite among discerning pianists, the Yamaha U1 offers outstanding musical performance, setting the standards by which many other upright pianos are measured.
Advanced Scale Design
Refinements in all elements of sound production have given today's U series a richer , more resonant voice with evenly balanced timbre across the entire keyboard.
Soundboard and Frame
Special rib configurations add strength to the soundboard, while back post and other advances further enhance rigidity, resonance and structural stability.
U Series hammers use materials specifically selected for each model to provide optimum tone production, response and long-term durability.
A damping mechanism, formerly used only in grand pianos, prevents the fallboard from dropping abruptly onto the keyboard, guarding against accidental injury or damage.
SH2 Silent System
When the silencing function is activated and the keys are struck, hammer shank stoppers move into place to prevent the hammers from striking the strings. While the piano is outwardly silenced, the movement of the keys and other performance information are picked up by optical sensors and converted to digital data by a tone generator. The digitally sampled acoustic sound is then sent to the stereo headphones for the player to enjoy in complete privacy.
