A Bespoke Experience

The rich acoustic experience made convenient. You’ll instantly notice the b1’s bright, engaging sound from the first note you play. Projecting a very ‘focused’ sound, it accurately delivers every note. That means the b1 is a fantastic piano for training or do justice to every song you play. It is the ideal long-term option for a piano student.

The b1 is a total joy to play. Yamaha have gone to great lengths to achieve a tactile and highly responsive keyboard action. The nature of the action means you can achieve a huge range of dynamic nuances in your playing. Made up of more than 5,500 unique, custom built pieces the action of the b1 helps you keep a natural flow in your playing.

Exceptional Materials and Construction

Each b-series piano is created in a purpose-built workshop. Every last detail of construction was designed so that your b1 is effortlessly brilliant every time you start to play. That reliability is all down to the meticulous nature of the b1’s creation. The keyboard is made from solid Sitka Spruce, which is kiln dried until it’s just right. Resulting in keys that go unharmed by the changing conditions the piano lives in.

From the moment you press the keys, Yamaha have carefully designed the next few milliseconds. The unique key hammers (which are created in machinery Yamaha custom built themselves) strike the strings. The bridge, where the strings meet the soundboard, is milled Beech hardwood, ensuring that string vibrations are accurately transferred to the soundboard. The sound emanates from the cabinet filling the room with a rich, resonant sound.

Bespoke Samples

The Yamaha b1 SC2 uses samples from two bespoke acoustic pianos for the most authentic tone possible. The CFX is Yamaha's flagship concert grand piano and represents 19 years of research and development. Yamaha has combined traditional craftsmanship and modern day engineering to examine every element of the piano, discovering how each detail can impact the sound. Bosendorfer have been crafting pianos since 1828 and are one of the oldest piano manufacturers in the world.

Bosendorfer pianos are filled with warmth and richness of tone which has inspired composers such as Bartok and Debussy. When using headphones with the b1 SC2, the binaural sampled sounds are automatically ready with no additional settings required. These samples were recorded using special microphones to pick up the sound from the musicians position when performing. When using these samples you will soon forget that you are playing with headphones.

Enhanced VRM Modelling

In an acoustic piano, sound resonates throughout the body of the instrument, producing a rich and warm sound. The enhanced Virtual Resonance Modelling (VRM) found on the b1 SC2 optimises the resonances and allows every note to be unique to faithfully emulate every nuance of your technique, similar to an acoustic piano. The VRM can also calculate the intensity of your performance and add appropriate decay of each note.

A Beautifully Crafted Finish

You can see Yamaha’s obsession with quality is not just on the inside. Visually, the black Yamaha b1 embodies the quintessential piano aesthetic. The finish is highly resistant to delamination and colour fading – so it’s going to look great for some time to come. The b1 also features a legless design, which is a slightly more modern take on the upright silhouette.

As you might expect, the substantial frame upon which the b1 is built, comes from a unique process. Machined using the advanced ‘V-Pro’ method, Yamaha can more accurately construct the frame - ensuring that your piano will be structurally sound for decades.
