Unique Yamaha technology retains the all-important touch of the grand piano

Produced at Yamaha's own Indonesian piano factory - from a scale design developed in Japan - Yamaha's B1 Series pianos offer fantastic quality, excellent value for money, and endowed with Yamaha's renowned pure, rich, clear tone. The B1's construction is wonderful featuring strung backs with Yamaha's own strong cast iron V-pro frame; specially selected solid spruce soundboard; and four sturdy wooden back posts to give additional strength. Yamaha use their specially developed 'B Series Special' high-grade hammers and a proven action design that offers effortless playing and a highly responsive keyboard touch. The hard-wearing key surfaces are acrylic resin for the white keys and black phenolic resin with wooden filler for the black keys.

Yamaha Silent Piano™ features a range of unique technologies that allow them to offer a touch that is astonishingly close to that of an acoustic grand piano even when in "Silent" mode.

- Key sensors

Under each of the 88 keys is a Yamaha-unique continuous-detection grey-scale shutter key sensor. These sensors detect the movement of the keys continually, allowing natural musical expression even when the piano is in "Silent" mode. Since they do not come into contact with the keys, these sensors do not affect the feel of the keyboard in any way.

- Quick escape system (Grand Pianos only)

Silent Piano™ features a quick escape system that allows the sound muting mechanism to be fitted to a grand piano without sacrificing any of the playability or musical expression demanded of such instruments in an acoustic performance. This system allows optimal separation to be obtained between the hammers and strings by adjusting the distance between the hammers and strings, ensuring that the feel of the keyboard stays in the best possible condition whether playing acoustically or with the sound muted.

Rich resonance and subtle accurate reproduction


- CFIIIS Sampling

With stereo samplings from the world-renowned CFIIIS concert grand. Yamaha’s SG2 type Silent piano™ delivers rich resonance and an element of luxury.

- Maximum simultaneous polyphony of 64 notes

Polyphony is a vital feature that defines and supports the quality of the sounds that you are using. The maximum simultaneous polyphony on the SG2 type is 64 notes.

- 30MB Wave memory

Wave memory size is key, as it defines the storage level for the sampled sound data. 30MB wave memory allows Yamaha to include longer samples, many velocity layers, key sampling for each individual key and sustain sampling.

Affordable price since functions are limited to the most important ones


- 10 tonal colors

10 voices, including harpsichord, pipe organ and strings, provide a wide range of musical expression.

- Built-in recording and play back functions

The SG2 type Silent piano™ can record one song in the internal memory. Additionally, connecting commercially available USB memory to the unit allows you save recording data, and play back songs.

The SG2 type simple control unit allows you use easily to control the basic functions of recording and playing back songs.

- Connecting SG2 type pianos to external devices such as sound source modules and music players (CD players etc.) via AUX IN terminals allows players to listen to the sound from these external devices on the headphones while they play the piano.

- Connecting MIDI devices such as synthesizers to SG2 type pianos via MIDI OUTPUT terminals allows players to transmit performance information to external devices for playback.
