The Yamaha P116 SH Silent Upright Piano in polished white delivers an incredible instrument at a highly affordable price. Whether you're a student or teacher, amateur or professional, the playability and tonality of this superb piano is a fine example of Yamaha's peerless workmanship.
Unique "Silent Piano" Technology
The P116 SH is equipped with Yamaha's "Silent" technology, which ensures that the playing feel and rich timbre you experience whilst performing, remains the same whether you play acoustically or digitally. The silencing function works through employing a dampening mechanism that prevents the hammers from hitting the strings. Then optical sensors beneath each of the 88-keys, translates the note information and transmits it digitally to the tone generator. The sampling system used produces sounds of the highest possible quality, as they've been taken from binaural recordings of Yamaha's flagship model, the revered CFX concert grand.
The Silent Piano features 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.
Not only does the P116 SH guarantee exquisite playability with a broad, rich tonality, but also there is a range of additional functions to improve your playing experience. 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 options to play with.
Recording performances is easy. For a quick reference to playback and assess your playing, simply use the internal recording option. However, you can also use the available USB port to connect a USB flash memory drive, enabling you to transfer recordings in the WAV format for playback on your PC. 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 eye-catching polished white finish of this particular model is complemented beautifully by the chrome fittings. The casters on the rear and back ensure that the P116 is easy to manoeuvre, should you wish or need to.
If you're looking for a piano that plays as sweetly both acoustically and digitally, offers a huge range of sounds to practise or perform along to, and will look fantastic in any living/working/teaching/performing environment, then the Yamaha P116 Silent Upright Piano in polished white with chrome fittings is the piano for you.
