I only wish Yamaha silent pianos were easier to find! They seem like wonderful pianos! I really do want a C3X Silent, but it's a six-month wait from factory, with "special-order" pricing. frown

Rick,

Yes, I edited the title. Any chance of you returning my 1st post to its original state?

I believe all the PW users would greatly appreciate the announcement on Yamaha's "SG2" & "SH" Silent systems

Thank you,

Jeff Tasch

I tried playing one of the silent pianos, I feel that when you use the silent function the piano looses some of its quality. Even though its a fantastic instrument, when using the headphones the vibrations of the piano when acoustic is lost though the feel of the fingers as the piano is no longer engaging with the strings

anyone else feel this way? And like I said, I think its a fantastic instrument and I wouldn't pass one up in a heartbeat but this is my two cents

Hi Jeff,

No, I did not save your original post content. If my memory serves me correctly, it was a long list of the silent models that you sell. I made a decision as a moderator and edited your content; I still believe it was over the line in terms of looking like and sounding like an ad. The fact that you disagreed with my decision is noted.

Consider yourself fortunate the thread is still here... looks like you've gotten a lot of mileage out of it anyway.

Rick
