The Yamaha P116 is the smaller of the two P series upright piano models. Its compact case and high inherent build quality make it a great choice for the advancing home pianist. Despite its small size it is certainly capable of performing as required for the higher grades. The P series range of uprights has always been made with a European customer base in mind and has a pleasing mellow tone and elegantly styled cabinet with a two piece top lid and rounded edges.

The SH silent system adds a wealth of functionality to this piano and makes it ideal for those for whom noise is an issue. When the silent mode is activated a rail moves between the hammers and the strings to 'switch off' the acoustic piano. Highly sophisticated optical sensor technology then captures the detailed movements of each key and you can hear the beautiful sound of a Yamaha CFX concert grand piano through your headphones - play a real acoustic piano with headphones at any time, day or night without being disturbed or disturbing others! Not only is the piano sound amazing, there are also 18 other instrument sounds, including grand and electric pianos, strings, organ and harpsichord. You can also play along with MIDI files, and use the USB audio recorder to record your performances as a CD ready file to your USB memory stick. Alternatively, using the iPad Piano Diary app you can upload your performances straight to YouTube or other social media sites. The possibilities are endless!

With fantastic build and component quality, the P116 Silent is made in Yamaha's Indonesian piano factory which is among the most modern and advanced in the world. Owned and operated by Yamaha, the result is high quality control from start to finish!
