Introducing the Yamaha P121 SH3 Silent upright piano
As the larger of the two Yamaha P Series models, the P121 is a very well priced, high quality upright that is designed with the European and British home pianist in mind. While 121cm tall and the same size as the b3, U1 and YUS1 models, it is a distinctly different instrument in both styling and tonal quality. Softer edges lend the piano a luxurious and elegant appearance, while the mellow voicing and a European spruce soundboard gives the tone a distinctively European warmth and depth.
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
