Yamaha N1 AvantGrand

The Yamaha N1 AvantGrand Hybrid Piano delivers true grand piano performance from a Vertical Grand that is minimal in design and aesthetically gratifying. The nuanced touch and response of the grand piano are an essential standard yardstick for piano quality. The AvantGrand offers the player a specially-developed grand piano action that features the same configuration as the action of a real grand. The hammers strike the “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.

Key Features

  • Spatial Acoustic Sampling is a proprietary sampling method that accurately reproduces the sound of a Yamaha CFIIIS Concert Grand from four discrete sampling points (Left, Center, Right and Rear).
  • The Spatial Acoustic Speaker System delivers the stunning realism of a specially sampled Yamaha CFIIIS Concert Grand through a four channel multi-speaker system.
  • MIDI Recording allows the player to preserve their musical memories in the instrument’s internal memory or save them to USB.
  • The Specialized Grand Piano Action provides the player with a real acoustic grand piano action for genuine touch and feel.
