AvantGrand N3 Hybrid Piano

This is the most amazing technological break-through in piano history. It is a hybrid piano combining digitally-sampled concert grand sound, 12 speakers and 16 amplifiers and a complete Yamaha acoustic grand piano action.

The sound sampling is an advanced technology called "Spatial Sampling". Yamaha engineers took samples from four specific areas of the soundboard and assigned 3 amplifiers and 3 speakers to each sampled area. Only the sound sampled from the particular area of the soundboard will amplify from that particular area, i.e. spatial sampling. This mimics the acoustics of a traditional grand piano.

Nothing like this has ever been done before! The remaing four amplifiers feed the transducers which result in the Tactile Response System, which is the vibration felt throughout the keys and body of the piano - just like the real thing. This hybrid piano has no equal in the industry. Compare it to medium to high-end grand pianos - not to digital pianos.

Also available in 3 console versions - the N2, N1 and NU1 hybrid piano - that are more compact.
