What is a Silent Vertical Piano?

Silent Pianos combine the best of Acoustic and Digital Pianos.

Our prime goal is to ensure that we provide a beautiful acoustic piano, built with the knowledge and skills of over 100 years Yamaha piano history.
Then we add our market leading Silent Piano technology to enable the piano to be played silently using headphones.
When the silent 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 Silent 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.

The innovative technology of the Silent Piano is becoming increasingly popular among pianists of all ages and abilities, allowing you to practice day and night without disturbing anyone.
With advancements in the sound-muting performance of the Silent Piano, SH2 has now replaced SH and SC2 has replaced SG2.

Are you interested in buying a piano with this impressive silencing system but are wondering ‘what is the difference between the SH2 and SC2 versions?’
We have outlined in a table below the different specifications of these Silent Piano systems; all other specifications are the same.
