Introducing the Yamaha GC1 SH3 Silent grand piano
The GC1 grand piano is perhaps the most obvious 'upgrade' from the Yamaha GB1 grand piano. At 5'3'' the instrument is larger, and this alone is enough to give the instrument more depth, especially in the lower registers.
Among other refinements, the GC1 also benefits from 'duplex scaling' which is a method of bringing out a fuller tone from a piano by tuning what are known as the 'non-speaking' parts of the string. The GC1 is also the first in the Yamaha grand piano range to be made at the main production facility in Japan, alongside the CX series grands and U Series uprights.
Fitted with the latest Silent Technology, the YUS1 SH3 allows the piano to not only be played acoustically, but also with headphones making it completely silent to everyone but the pianist! Dominic Barnett – Chamberlain Pianos
