Visiting Yamaha at 2014 NAMM

It is always a treat to visit NAMM and even more to visit the Yamaha Booth.
It is best summed up by this text exchange I had with my 13 year old daughter:

Yamaha finally has a White Baby Grand Piano

A classic White Grand Piano can bring beauty to any space. This piano is the beautiful marriage of the Yamaha sound and the stunning white curves of a baby grand.

The Yamaha b3 is now available in three different finishes.

The Yamaha b3 is a 48 inch tall upright. This piano was introduced in Polished Ebony. It is now available in Mahogany and Walnut. This piano is for the ambitious performer on a budget, the b3 delivers a superior sound at an affordable price. 

 The newest thing is the Yamaha TransAcoustic Piano:

 Finally!! a volume control on an acoustic piano!!

The Yamaha Piano Company again has proven to be a leader in the newest technology. This piano manufacturer has introduced the U1TA a fully strung piano with Yamaha's SILENT Piano function. TransAcoustic technology allows the U1TA to produce a uniquely layered acoustic/digital sound and also lets the pianist conveniently control the volume. This technology turns the soundboard into a loudspeaker and all sounds, acoustic and digital, are generated through it. 

This piano is going to be perfect for small performance venues as well as for condominium owners who may need to use the headphones!
