Product code: YUS1TA Manufacturer: Yamaha

The YUS1 is a beautiful upgrade to the already class leading Yamaha U1, benefiting from upgraded hammer felt, strings and superior voicing. Add Yamaha's groundbreaking TransAcoustic technology to the mix and you have a seriously versatile instrument!

Yamaha's incredible TransAcoustic system allows you to not only play silently through headphones but also to use the pianos naturally resonant soundboard as a speaker, enabling you to physically turn down the volume of your piano. As with Yamaha's Silent piano range, the hammer stop bar prevents the hammers from hitting the strings and the sound that you hear becomes a beautifully sampled Yamaha CFX concert grand. Select from the 19 built in instrument voices, including grand and electric pianos, harpsichord, organs and strings, or plug in an external tone generator. Sounds played through speakers often sound confined due to the size of the speaker itself, but Yamaha's TransAcoustic system turns the whole piano into that loudspeaker, thus generating a much larger and richer sound.

The instrument also has a USB audio recorder allowing you to record your performances, and is also iPad compatible - download Yamaha's piano diary app to keep track of your progress or to upload your performances to social media sites!
