Question: Is the Yamaha Transacoustic piano an acoustic piano with volume control or a digital piano with strings?
The new breed of piano where the soundboard is turned in to a loudspeaker allowing you to play digital sounds using the natural resonance and nuances of the Yamaha YUS5’s acoustic cabinet. All sound genuinely comes from the sound board. Play as a normal piano or choose to have digital sampled sounds played back through the piano soundboard with the hammers stopped from hitting the strings, and the ability to lower the volume, and all with no compromise to your playing
