Yamaha SC3 Silent Piano Features
The Articulation System
The 88 note Keyboard Features a newly designed non contact electro magnetic articulation sensor system.
This systems measures the key travel speed, timing and release to mimic what the hammer would of been doing if it hit the string instead of the silent bar.
The Keys Feature a Continuous detection electromagnetic inductive system.
The Sustain or Damper Pedal feature a Continuous detection optical sensor and the Left pedal or Soft Pedal has an On/Off Optical Sensor.
The Mute Rail
On a regular acoustic upright piano the middle pedal is usually a mute pedal. This brings a piece of felt between the hammers and the strings and lowers the keys velocity thus “muting the sound”.
The Yamaha Silent Upright Pianos has the Mute Rail Catching the hammer before it hits the string to prevent unwanted sound and to give the musician the feel of an acoustic piano.
This is only done in the factory to ensure proper feel, proper installation and to guarantee product longevity.
