Detailed Description

The b1 is a fantastic option for those who are restricted in terms of space and budget, but do not want to compromise when it comes to enjoying the authentic sound and touch of a real piano. Designed for modern day living, the b1 is the most compact of the b Series pianos, being only 109cm tall, and yet still providing a clear and beautiful tone that is particularly appealing for beginner to intermediate level players.

B Series

Produced at a Yamaha factory in Indonesia from a scale design developed in Japan, b Series pianos are Yamaha’s most affordable entry-level uprights. Although reduced production costs allow budget-friendly prices, Yamaha makes no compromises in the materials and workmanship that go into these exceptional uprights.

Supported by four sturdy wooden back posts and a strong cast iron frame, b Series pianos are endowed with Yamaha’s renowned pure, clear tone. High-grade hammers and a proven action design offer effortless playing and a highly responsive keyboard ‘touch’ that make these uprights ideal for beginning players.

SC2 Silent System

With Yamaha’s latest SC2 Silent System you not only have one of the most popular and highly-regarded upright pianos on the market, but also one that gives you the option of practising without disturbing others. It does this by activating a rail which stops the hammers from travelling all the way up to the strings. You therefore benefit from the normal weight and feel of the hammer action but without creating any acoustic sound.

Instead, optical sensors – located under the keys – detect all the various nuances of your playing and convert this into sound that has been sampled from Yamaha’s CFX Concert Grand piano through the included headphones, and you also have the option of hearing Bösendorfer’s Imperial Concert Grand (along with 8 other instruments). In the case of the CFX, the sound has been sampled binaurally, which gives you the most authentic, acousticsounding sample available. And Yamaha’s Virtual Resonance Modelling further replicates all of the natural resonance that acoustic instruments are capable of.
