Do you love to play the piano but you do not want to cause any noise disturbance? Then the silent piano is suitable for you.
A silent piano is a combination of an acoustic and a digital piano. In fact a silent piano is an ordinary piano which also has hammers and strings, but in addition has a number of characteristics of a digital piano. A silent piano has the silent system built in, in which case you can play an ordinary acoustic piano, but you hear the sound through a pair of headphones . The people in the same house or the neighbors do not hear the sound of the piano.
How does a silent piano work?
With a normal piano the hammers strike the strings to produce sound. When the silent system is switched on, the acoustic mechanism of the piano is being shut off. The hammers do not strike the strings because of a so called stop rail. Sensors have a connection with the digital part which is built in the piano. They moderate the signal of the keys and measure which key is being pressed and the duration of it. These sensors control built in sound samples in the piano and the piano converts the sensors in a digital sound which is heard through the headphones. This digital sound is comparable with the sound of an acoustic piano
The silent system makes it possible to play without being disturbed. Our Bolan system is affordable and features the latest technology.
The biggest advantage of a silent piano is the fact that you can play whenever you want without disturbing anyone else. As a result the possibilities to play the piano increase enormously.
Because the silent system is directly connected to the acoustic piano, the touch is not affected and the sensation is the same.
