TransAcoustic TC3

Features convenient volume control, yet maintains gorgeous acoustic piano resonance. Recommended for those who want to enjoy advanced TransAcoustic™ technology on a standard Yamaha piano.

TransAcoustic™ Piano
TransAcoustic™ pianos are genuine acoustic pianos, equipped with a volume control feature powered by Yamaha’s latest technology. While it’s also possible to play silently through headphones, the TransAcoustic™ Mode allows you to control the volume of your piano, so you can play without disturbing others. Even at low volumes, the soundboard vibrates so you can enjoy the full, physical sensation of natural acoustic sound as you play.

GREAT WAYS TO ENJOY THE TransAcoustic™ Piano

  • Simply play your acoustic piano
  • Control the volume as you play
  • Play silently with headphones
  • Use your piano as a speaker
  • Download the Smart Pianist app

TransAcoustic™ TECHNOLOGY

Making sounds resonate
Pressing a key on an acoustic piano causes its hammer to strike the corresponding strings, making those strings vibrate. The initial sound is small, but it’s amplified by the soundboard with the entire body of the piano serving as a resonator. The result: the distinctively rich sound of an acoustic piano. TransAcoustic™ technology employs this same mechanism of resonance keyed by the soundboard through a digital tone generator.

Creating acoustic sound from digital audio sources.
With TransAcoustic™ technology, there’s no need for a speaker unit, even though the sounds are generated digitally. All that’s required is a transducer. In TransAcoustic™ Mode, the hammers are stopped immediately before striking the strings, and sensors installed below the keys decipher how they are played. The transducer’s job is to convert the digital signals that represent your input into vibrations, and then relay them to the soundboard. The soundboard amplifies the vibrations, and the entire piano vibrates sympathetically. Even though the sound is digital, it goes through the same mechanism of resonance, meaning that the sound that reaches your ears is as rich as that of an acoustic piano. You can also control the volume and still enjoy the feel of playing an acoustic piano.

A special transducer for acoustic pianos.
Conventional transducers are too heavy to install on a piano soundboard; their weight compromises its essential functions. To address this problem, Yamaha developed a transducer exclusively for acoustic pianos. Yamaha’s transducer faithfully reproduces the natural sound of acoustic pianos without inhibiting the functions of the soundboards.

Excellent piano repair service
Read More
My piano needed a repair to the polyester finish which I was very unsure about but Andy from the repair workshop was so friendly and helpful. The quality of the finish is perfect and I couldn’t be happier. The piano was collected from my home in Devon, repaired and delivered back to me in a very quick turn around time.
