Evolving the Traditional

  • Weighted non-contact hammer heads are installed with graded weight specifications, giving a natural feel with genuine weight reproduction.

  • Optical hammer sensors with two-point detection are installed on the hammer shanks, accurately detecting the velocity and timing at which the hammers move. The ability to monitor key and hammer movement together adds extra precision to keystroke detection and sound reproduction.

  • The AvantGrand employs real acoustic action parts, preserving the feel and response pianists desire.

  • Strategically placed counterweights provide the naturally weighted feel and response pianists desire from an acoustic action.

  • Ivorite® key tops look and feel like natural ivory for a comfortable touch. Moisture absorbing and color-change resistant, Ivorite is also used for Yamaha CF series acoustic grand pianos.
