Grotrian-Steinweg offer the Yamaha Silent system as a factory fitted option on all GROTRIAN acoustic digital pianos. A special silent rail is fitted in the action to separate the action from the acoustical system. The silent mode is activated by a small hand-lever beneath the keyboard.

The sampling is executed by an optical system which is mounted under the keys. This means there is no mechanical connection and thereby no change in the levers of the action. Finally the touch of a GROTRIAN is not influenced by the Silent-system.  The optically generated signals get digitalised and are then processed into MIDI. The control unit contains AUX, USB and MIDI connection.

Only Grotrian installs the Silent System so that it can, if required, be completely removed. Neither the installation nor the removal damages other components of the instrument, for example the soundboard.

The silent and midi-system for grand and upright pianos offer the best of both worlds, play your piano normally during the day or at night silence the audible sound and hear it through headphones, even play whilst others sleep !

Retrofitting : Silent Piano and Player systems need to be fitted to new pianos or perfectly regulated modern pianos for best results.

New versions of the Silent System and Player Piano Systems may become available and offer better options which we may suggest in future if appropriate.
