Features

Thanks to a specially designed grand-piano action and a wooden keyboard, the AvantGrand truly becomes an extension of your body.

The nuanced touch and response of the grand piano are an essentialstandard yardstick for piano quality. It offers the player aspecially-developed grand piano action that features the sameconfiguration as the action of a real grand. The hammers strike the"strings" from underneath, allowing minute adjustments to the weightdistribution of the hammers, and to the movement of the hammersthemselves, for a smoother feel when playing. In addition to a hammersensor, this instrument employs a non-contact key sensor that has noeffect on the movement of the keys, affording excellent recognition ofthe player's pressure on the keyboard, timing, and the other delicatenuances that affect musical expression. This combination provides animpressive sensitivity for the entire range from pianissimo through tofortissimo, and the ability to translate even the swiftest trills of thepianist with transparency. The wood construction of the keyboardmirrors that of the grand piano, and features New Ivory II on the whitekeys. This is a unique material developed by Yamaha, with a texturesuperbly close to that of natural ivory, allowing you to play swiftpassages with ease while also offering a sure response for slowerpieces.

Unique acoustic-sampling approach and speaker system born of a radical rethink of the entire sound production process.

With the introduction of the AvantGrand, Yamaha ignited a revolutionin the approach to sampling recording and playback of the notes of theactual acoustic piano. Treating the soundboard not simply as a pointsource of sound but as a plane, we took samples at four positions,adding optimum center and rear locations to the traditional left andright. As a sound source, we carefully selected the best singleinstrument from among our CFIIIS full concert grand pianos for sampling.The end result of these efforts is that AvantGrand series instrumentsrecreate the original sound of a superb grand piano almost toperfection. Meanwhile, the AvantGrand’s speaker system has been designedto ensure that this sound is heard best at the playing position. Athree-way system featuring woofer, mid-range and tweeter speakersreproduce the rich natural resonance of the soundboard accurately.What’s more, each of the low-, mid-, and high-frequency bands has beengiven its own amplifier to prevent interference between bands. Thisinnovative configuration allows the instrument’s outstanding soundsystem to reproduce the nuances of each individual note. For evengreater sonic accuracy, while the N2 feature speaker layouts optimizedfor the size of the instruments.

The Tactile Response System (TRS) recreates the sensation of piano body vibration.

The sound of an acoustic piano resonates throughout its entire body.The bass range in particular is an essential part of the reverberationthat is continually transmitted to a player's body. In the AvantGrand,this is replicated by our newly-developed Tactile Response System (TRS)that focuses on reproducing reverberation. This system features twotransducers in the soundboard, the area underneath the keyboard,resonating natural reverberation throughout the entire instrument. Theplayer receives the natural sound felt f rom hands touching on thekeyboard and feet depressing the pedals; the epitome of real pianoplaying. This system can be turned on and off, and the vibration set toone of three levels.
