High end 88-key piano for advanced students
Please select instrument options
This model is the largest of the SE branded Yamaha upright pianos and is noticeably more resonant and rich when compared to its smaller sibling. Created to compete directly with the larger upright models from the likes of Steinway, Bluthner, and Bechstein, the SE132 combines traditional Japanese build quality with high end European component parts.
Its solid Bavarian spruce sound board has a close grain that produces a reliable even sustain, and responds beautifully to nuanced playing, while the bespoke Renner action adds performance grade sensitivity that opens the door to a vast spectrum of expressive sound.
What really sets these models apart is that each instrument is fully set up and prepared in the Yamaha concert workshop by the same craftsman who finish the CF concert grand pianos. They lavish many hours of technical attention upon the SE series uprights to create characterful pianos with a uniquely lyrical tone.
The SE132 is also available as a silent piano that incorporates the new SH silent module, creating an instrument of unrivalled versatility. By shifting the middle pedal to the left and fixing it in place, pianists can engage a mechanism which stops the hammers from hitting the strings. Sensors under the keys now allow it to be used as a digital piano that can be heard through headphones or external speakers without sacrificing the feel and weight of a real acoustic action.
As well as detailed samples of Yamaha concert grand pianos, the module includes patches for electric pianos and strings among others. USB connectivity facilitates easy interfacing for recording and the instrument can also be used alongside a number of specially designed apps to help both practice and performance.
