Let’s take a look at the Yamaha NU1…

Yamaha Hybrid Pianos combine the actual physical characteristics and mechanics of acoustic pianos with state of the art digital technologies, to create a playing experience virtually indistinguishable from that of an acoustic instrument. The NU1 offers the sound, feel, and elegant look of a world-class upright piano, all while providing the benefit of playing silently and relieving the cost of acoustic piano tuning and maintenance.

The Hybrid Sound
What better way to offer an authentic piano sound, than to sample one of Yamaha’s greatest piano achievements? The NU1 features expertly sampled sounds from their CFX 9’ Concert Grand Piano, an instrument with a legend that continues to grow.

Yamaha CFX
The nine-foot CFX is a full sized concert grand piano characterized by a wide palette of tonal colors and the ability to create the subtlest expressive nuances. The CFX was one of the Yamaha's most ambitious projects and greatest achievements, and no expense was spared to confirm that what you hear in the CLP lives up to the reputation of the original.

Yamaha CFX

The body resonance of a piano is every bit as important as the strike of the hammer on the string. NU1 offers a 4-speaker system for a total of 160 watts of power. This system directs the sound through its body, allowing the wood to resonate just as if the strings were vibrating from within. The impressive speaker system and Yamaha’s ground breaking acoustic resonance technology combine in NU1, to offer the same immersive experience you would find in their acclaimed upright pianos.

The Hybrid Touch
When considering the experience of playing an acoustic piano, the touch is every bit as important as the sound. Yamaha uses the same style of hammer system and natural wood keys found in their upright pianos, making the NU1 nearly identical to the feel of their U1 upright. Rather than trying to mimic the response of an upright piano, the NU1 feels real, because it is real.

GP Response Damper Pedal
The damper pedal on an acoustic piano functions like a lever system to raise the damper off the strings. Yamaha’s GP Response Damper Pedal feels heavier as you push it further down, just like the damper pedal on an acoustic piano. This allows a player to have a more consistent experience between playing the NU1 and a grand piano.

The Digital Advantage
While every effort has been made to offer an acoustic piano experience, saving money on piano tuning is hardly the greatest advantage to owning a digital piano. Yamaha offers state-of-the-art technologies in NU1, allowing you a greater opportunity to explore your creativity.

Reverb effects can simulate characteristics of an acoustic space, and offer more creative ways to play. NU1 allows you to customize your reverb by increasingly adding depth, creating soundscapes from small studios to grand concert halls.

USB Audio Recorder
Recording and listening to your practice performances can be an invaluable tool for players of all levels to grow as musicians. The NU1 allows you to record your performances to USB memory drive to review your practice sessions or share your compositions.
