Yamaha TransAcoustic YUS5TA Upright Hybrid Piano


The Yamaha TransAcoustic YUS5TA Upright Hybrid Piano is a fully functional acoustic piano with a powerful high-quality digital sound engine, providing a vast range of sonic possibilities. The innovative tone generator transmits the digital sound directly to the piano's soundboard, turning the entire instrument into a loudspeaker for an incredibly natural-sounding tone. Thanks to the TransAcoustic's SILENT piano™ SH technology, you have the choice of playing using only digital tones, purely acoustic sounds, or any combination of the two.

Play Piano at Any Volume

There are times when the full sound of an acoustic piano may not be appreciated by your family or neighbors. For these situations, simply activate the TransAcoustic™ function and the hammers will no longer strike the strings. Non-contact sensors under each individual key detect your keystroke depth, velocity and timing and send this information to the tone generator. Just adjust the volume and hear the digital sound of your piano performance coming from the entire instrument. Naturally, there is no need for headphones or external amplification.

Featuring SILENT Piano™ SH

Yamaha's renowned SILENT piano™ SH technology allows practice sessions to be conducted with headphones. The TransAcoustic™ piano also features a superb binaural sample from the Yamaha CFX concert grand piano recorded using special techniques to perfectly capture the sound from the player's natural listening position. These two technologies combine to create the perfect environment to play without disturbing others.

Play Along to Music

Enjoy playing along with any of the 50 preset songs that come with the TransAcoustic™, accompanying your playing with songs you have recorded yourself, or even with commercially available songs played back through the sound board. You can be as creative as you want with this feature - you can, for example, play a duet with yourself - or you can just sit back and listen to the playback.

A Broad Sonic Palette

The TransAcoustic™ piano offers 19 pre-installed sounds, allowing you to select the ideal voice to match your preferred musical genre. With electric pianos, harpsichord, vibraphone, pipe organs, jazz organ, strings, choir, and synth pad, TransAcoustic™ pianos are perfect for performing in jazz bars, hotels, restaurants, churches, and in fact, almost any venue you can imagine. All voices are output through the soundboard, giving these instruments a distinctly natural, resonant sound that makes playing a TransAcoustic™ piano a truly memorable experience.

Combine Acoustic and Digital Sound

Thanks to their unique construction, TransAcoustic™ pianos allow you to layer the natural, resonant sound of the acoustic piano together with voices from the tone generator. Perhaps the most scintillating sounds are created by combining the acoustic and digital properties of the instrument - for example, gentle orchestral strings seemingly played from an acoustic piano - to achieve sonic textures with a natural quality not found on any other instrument.

The Sound of Yamaha's Acclaimed CFX Concert Grand

Played by the winner of the 2010 International Piano Competition, the CFX is Yamaha's flagship concert grand piano. TransAcoustic™ pianos feature a superbly detailed binaural sample of the CFX that lets you to enjoy the rich, resonant sound of the CFX in a more compact instrument.
