The Yamaha GC2 SH Silent Baby Grand Piano in polished ebony combines Yamaha's technical excellence with superb workmanship. A wealth of experience in crafting exceptional instruments, acquired over an illustrious 100-year period, has gone into creating this exceptional model.

Unique "Silent Piano" SH Technology

As part of their undying commitment to furthering the potential of their instruments, the GC2 SH includes Yamaha's groundbreaking Silent Piano technology. In order to offer the highest quality of tones, even when playing through headphone, Yamaha designed their SH system to reproduce the tones of Yamaha's incredible CFX full-concert grand piano based on binaurally captured recordings. By using a recording technique that utilises microphones that are installed in the ears of a dummy, Yamaha were able to capture the sound image of the CFX as a concert pianist hears it, to create as realistic an image as possible.

The silencing function ensures that the hammer is prevented from striking the string. Instead, optical sensors - under each one of the 88 keys - capture subtle nuances with regard to the performance, deliver that note information to a tone generator, which in turn returns the digitally sampled notes to your chosen output. The SH system is also equipped with hammer sensors, which ensure that even slow keystrokes or rapid trills are detected with the utmost transparency.

The Silent Piano features includes a quick escape system, which optimises the playability and responsiveness of the keyboard. It does this by adjusting the distance between the hammer and the strings, in accordance with whether or not silent mode is activated, so you're guaranteed a uniform playing feel every time.

Sublime Functionality

Not only does the GC2 guarantee a delightful playability with exceptional tonality when played both acoustically or electronically, but also Yamaha has included a range of functions to further your enjoyment. In "Silent" mode, the built-in metronome ensures that you can practise with total accuracy. With 19 voices included that cover harpsichord, pipe organ, strings, and jazz organ amongst others, you'll never be short on option to play with.

If you wish to record your performances, then Yamaha has you covered there too. There is a built-in recorder that you can capture ideas to, or via a USB flash memory drive in the WAV format for playback on PC. For immediate playback the built-in recorder is superb if you wish to zone in on errors or mistakes. However, transferring your pieces couldn't be easier thanks to the USB connectivity. The rear panel of the GM digital unit is equipped with AUX and MIDI terminals, which allow you to connect to external audio devices and/or MIDI devices.

The Yamaha GC2 SH Silent Baby Grand Piano in polished ebony is a truly remarkable instrument. Not only do you have an incredible baby grand at your disposal, but also lying within is a plethora of other tonal and functional delights to play with.
