Introducing the Yamaha YUS5 TA2 TransAcoustic Upright Piano
The YUS5 is the top of the range YUS Series model, and while built on the same 131cm tall frame as the YUS3 it is a completely different animal. Designed to appeal to those who require grand piano performance but cannot accommodate one, the YUS5 benefits from the same Ivorite synthetic ivory and wood composite key coverings as the CX Series grand pianos, while longer keys than the YUS3 deliver a more 'grand-like' touch and response.
Silent pianos have been around for many years, but wearing headphones to practice the piano quietly or privately is not always convenient. Sometimes there may be a teacher or a duet partner to consider, or a parent wishing to make sure that their child is doing their piano practice!
First and foremost an acoustic piano, a TransAcoustic piano is a versatile tool which combines the best features of a digital piano with the inimitable resonance and feel of an acoustic instrument.
Specially positioned transducers transform the piano's soundboard into a natural loudspeaker, meaning you can practice at a lower volume without wearing headphones.Dominic Barnett – Chamberlain Pianos
