Introducing the Yamaha P116 SH3 Silent upright piano
The P116 is the smaller of the two P Series models, which are designed with the British and European home pianist in mind. Soft styling coupled with a mellow voicing makes for a very different piano to the b and U series, while a European spruce soundboard delivers a distinctly warm and rich tone. The only piano in Yamaha's range that is built on a 116cm tall frame, the P116 is beautifully proportioned and is a popular size for the home.
Fitted with the Yamaha's new SH3 Silent system, the P116 SH3 allows the piano to not only be played acoustically, but also with headphones making it completely silent to everyone but the pianist. With refined features including virtual resonance modelling, binaural sampling on Yamaha CFX and Bosendorfer Imperial concert grand piano sounds, Grand Expression Modelling technology and a better key movement detection system than ever before, the sound and feel is so authentic you will forget you are even wearing headphones!
Additional benefits of the SH3 system include a built in record facility, USB audio recording, MIDI connectivity for use as a controller or for connecting a sound module, 20 rhythm accompaniments and compatibility with apps including Smart Pianist.Dominic Barnett – Chamberlain Pianos
