Yamaha Avant Grand N1

  • Specialized Grand Piano Action
  • Spatial Acoustic Sampling, Spatial Acoustic Speaker System

The latest addition to the range, the N1 delivers the captivating sound of AvantGrand in its simplest form. In terms of playing feel and responsive action, the N1 is simply incredible, setting a new standard with its perfect integration of acoustic and digital technologies.

The AvantGrand N1 offers the player a specially-developed action that features the same configuration as that of a grand piano.. The hammers strike the “virtual strings” from underneath, allowing minute adjustments to the weight distribution of the hammers, and to the movement of the hammers themselves, for a smoother feel when playing. In addition to a hammer sensor, the AvantGrand employs a non-contact key sensor that has no effect on the movement of the keys, affording excellent recognition of the player's pressure on the keyboard, timing, and the other delicate nuances that affect musical expression. This combination provides an impressive sensitivity for the entire range from pianissimo through to fortissimo, and the ability to translate even the swiftest trills of the pianist with transparency.
