Everything You Want From An Acoustic. Everything You Need In A Digital.
With the advances made in digital technology over the years, music and sound quality have also advanced to the point where it’s becoming more difficult to tell the difference between the classic sound of a grand piano and that of digital sound replicas.
This gap can often barely be distinguished if at all with both new AvantGrand pianos and other hybrid models. AvantGrand pianos are specific to Yamaha and this model of piano attempts to recreate all aspects of conventional piano sound and play. This extends not only to how the keys are pressed but also the response of the pedals as well.
AvantGrand pianos and hybrid pianos offer a way to get as close as possible to the feel of a classic piano.
They achieve this while still being affordable and space-conscious solutions to play at home or on stage with digital benefits like being able to use headphones while playing among other modern options.

A perennial favorite among discerning pianists, the Yamaha U1 offers outstanding musical performance, setting the standards by which many other upright pianos are measured. TransAcoustic™ functionality has been added to this U1. This is a TA2 type TransAcoustic™.
